Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These curtain rods are nice and substantial. I got the "bronze" and was expecting more of a burnished antique bronze finish, but they have more of a painted dark brown look to them. They still look nice. It takes some effort to insert the end pieces into the middle section. This and the color are the reasons I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this purchase and would recommend this item.
I will update this review if urbanest living gets back too me. The rod itself looks good but there's some big problems with how this product is presented to the customer: First, there are no directions for hanging the curtain rod (I realize it isn't rocket science, but still). Second - no screws or drywall sockets AT ALL. Three - I was sent 2 sets of tie-backs instead of one(why would I need two?). Four - Urbanest doesn't answer their phone and Five - no invoice, no nothing in the box.
I called Urbanest Living and got a recording. On a holiday weekend you would think a brick and mortar store would be open. The rod is supposed to be hung on Monday - how is this going to happen with no screws or instructions? I guess we just figure it out and go to home depot and buy the screws and drywall sockets ourselves.
Edit: In Urbanest's defense, they did call me and left a message that they would mend any problem with the order. I left a message back (Chris) that I...
These rods are an absolute nightmare. After all of the positive reviews, I felt confident buying them. However, the installation was the most painful experience I have ever had in home improvement. First of all, the "bronze" rods are just brown. There's nothing bronze about them. Second, the two joins in the rod are quite large, making it very difficult to pull the curtains across. I had seen this in previous reviews, but didn't think it would be too bad.
But the WORST part about these rods is the hardware that comes with it. The drywall anchors are the cheapest, lowest-quality anchors I have ever seen. I put two in and neither held anything at all. So I go buy some actual anchors, no big deal. The screws are the flimsiest, softest metal you can imagine. I think they may actually be made of powder. After stripping the heads on the first two without even being able to finish screwing them in, I used the screws that came with my new anchors and it worked just great...
