Decorative Ceiling Mounted Curtain Rods

There are several appropriate applications for choosing a ceiling mount curtain rod. Sometimes it is simply not feasible to mount drapery rods on the wall above the windows. Lack of space for the brackets is the most common reason. Some windows go clear to the ceiling, leaving no room for a rod, and sometimes elaborate moldings or existing blinds or shades get in the way. So, Kirsch created decorative drapery rod ceiling mount brackets in several collections to make hanging draperies in such circumstances possible.

When it comes to ceiling mount curtain rods, the selection includes traditional traverse curtain rods with a cord or chain to open and close the draperies, as well as a motorized version for those who want the ultimate convenience. With the touch of a button, your curtains will open and close automatically. The traverse rods are available in different sizes with or without rings, and in a variety of colors and finishes to coordinate with your decor.

Additionally, Kirsch offers curtain rod mounts that attach directly to the ceiling. These mounts and rods come in both adjustable and fixed lengths and styles that will match the look and feel you are going for. They also are available in a wide range of finishes to match your design preferences.

How to Install a Ceiling Mount Curtain Rod

Wondering how to install a ceiling mount curtain rod? The answer is simple: choose ceiling mount curtain rod brackets. These items are available in our Wood Trends and Designer Metals decorative drapery hardware collections. In each collection, you’ll find other matching curtain rod hardware - finials, end caps, rings, and more. Discover how to create a decorative ceiling mount curtain rod below.

Kirsch Wood Trends Collection 

The Kirsch Wood Trends collections in 1 3/8 in. diameter and 2 in. diameter have resin ceiling-mount brackets that are, essentially, large hooks that cradle the rod anyplace on the ceiling you want it. These screw directly to the ceiling, and are finished to match the wood finish you select. You simply put the rings or draperies directly on the rod, and place it on the brackets and you are done! If you are doing a wide span with rods put together with wood pole connector screws, you will need a bracket at each joint, as well as one at each end. Wood Trends rods are offered in eight finishes to coordinate with your wood furnishings, or to make a dramatic statement at your window.

Kirsch Designer Metals Collection

If you are opting for metal drapery hardware, the Kirsch Designer Metals collection offers decorative ceiling mount curtain rod brackets for both single and double rods—with bypass brackets to create a functioning drapery rod across a long span. Designer Metals ceiling mount curtain rods are installed the same way as the Wood Trends collection. Screw the brackets to the ceiling, put the rings or draperies on the rod, and then place the rod onto the brackets. If you’re looking to create a layered look, create a ceiling mount double curtain rod with a double ceiling bracket. No matter what style curtains or draperies you have, Designer Metals rods are offered in eight beautiful finishes to create the look you want, from ultra-modern to classic.

Kirsch Superfine Telescoping Rods

If you are looking to install a ceiling-mounted traverse rod, that can be done, too. The Kirsch Superfine telescoping rods can be attached to the ceiling with the included brackets. If you are looking for a sleek custom ceiling-mounted rod, the Architrac series is available in four finishes in a ceiling-mount option.
