Drapery rod diameter

2 months ago

I'm ordering custom length non-telescoping rods from Etsy and have a choice between 1 1/8" or 1 1/2" diameter rods. I have 3 sliding glass doors to cover: 1 will be about 10' long and 2 will be 6.5'. I see that most customers are ordering the 1.5" diameter ones, but I thought I read somewhere that slightly smaller rods are more current these days.

My draperies are a medium weight woven fabric & are thinly lined + pins & rings, but not pinch pleated. I"m going to try (4) 54" panels on the large door & (2) each on the smaller ones to see if they will be full enough. Our space is open plan living rm./dining space/kitchen, with standard ht. walls & cathedral ceiling. So, I'm wondering what people think I should do on here . . .
