I was looking to buy curtains online and saw that I can use “tracks” or “poles” to hang them. Aren’t those the same thing?
They pretty much serve the same purpose, but tracks and poles also have a few differences between them. For one, poles are designed to be partially visible, or even act as accents to the look of the curtain. Tracks, on the other hand, are subtler, and can be completely hidden when the curtains are closed.
Another difference is that some curtain styles like tab tops, rod pockets, and eyelet curtains can’t be hung using tracks. Poles allow for a wider range of curtains, and can be more attractive because of their finials, which are decorative pieces placed on both ends. You can always find help getting the right curtain tracks or poles for your new curtains online.
