Â by TwoBarnetts THEY ARE PERFECT
When we bought our house in January 2015, it needed a lot of work and we didn't move in until April. I had seen these rods while searching for window-covering ideas, and knew they would work perfectly for the look I wanted throughout the entire house: mocha colored grommet-top panels with off-white sheer panels behind them. I went ahead and ordered them even though I had not yet found the curtains I wanted, because I was afraid they could be out of stock if I waited. Eventually we were able to move in, I found the perfect panels and sheers, and the handyman who did much of the work on our house installed them for me. All together, it is exactly the look I wanted. I'm back to buy the matching curtain "holdbacks," which we need only for the patio door curtains. Another reviewer said these rods were difficult to install. I helped our handyman do it and he had no problem. I later had to tighten the screws that keep the rods from sliding when you open/close the curtains; it is a tight space, as she said, but I got it done nonetheless. She also said these are not metal. The rods are definitely metal, but the finials are some sort of ceramic. I dropped one on our tile floor and it broke into two pieces; it was easy to glue back together. The ordering went perfectly - I guess I counted my windows wrong, because I ended up with a few extra rods, and somehow I mistakenly ordered a couple in the single configuration instead of the double rod I needed. Kohl's took them back, no questions asked, even though it had been a couple of months since I ordered them. I have one very narrow window in a corner of my office that even the smallest rod was too big for, and it is still sticking out 6 inches too far on one side, waiting for me to get around to cutting it down with a pipe cutter, as instructed by my handyman. I am quite pleased with the entire effect, and feel the rods were a very good value.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by ConcernedNH Poor Quality and Design to work with
Initially I appreciated the look and style of these rods, BUT OMG what an effort to put up! The back side is way too short to be able to give the screwdriver any room to screw the holders into the wall; it was definitely not long enough, and the rounded bottom loop got in the way of accessing the holes for the screws. It took us hours trying to get at it with such a poor angle and eventually wound up just about stripping the screws trying to get them in. These are not metal and are some sort of composite, and will break if dropped as mine did. This was more of a headache than what it is worth. Save yourself the trouble and do not purchase, or at least have a screwdriver that can get at odd angles. You will need it to be able to get at the screws to put it into the wall.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by anthro Beautiful curtain rods; easy to install
I was very pleased with my curtain rods. They were pretty easy to install, and the adjustable rods were very convenient. Glad I ordered them.
