First, you need to decide what style of curtain rod you want. What kind of curtains are you going to use? If you want to go with a tabbed curtain or are going to use rings, round curtain rods are best so the curtains slide easily. If the curtains are going to be stationary, you might want to use a more decorative rod, such as a twisted rod or rope style rod. If the rod is not going to show, keep it simple with a round rod.
After you have installed your panel curtain, include a valance over it. Valances are typically patterned and used to accent plain curtains. For a whimsical look in a child's bedroom, switch that thinking around. A patterned curtain can be accented by a plain fabric valance. To add visual interest and appeal to the valance, decorate it with a light dusting of glitter or sequins. Not only will it make the valance more interesting, it will also accent the patterned curtain.
