Telescoping drapery rods are not the best choice for homes that are desiring functioning draperies. We always suggest one piece custom rods. Here is why:

Custom rods are more of an investment, but you get a greater return.

It won’t have the custom look and all of the available finishes and finials that a custom rod would have, but the bang for the buck is very attractive.

So, either way, there is something out there for your Reno or Tahoe home.
