A tension rod will also come in handy if you have an area where you simply can’t drill. Windows, for example, don’t leave much room for drilling and neither do more industrial-looking spaces with lots of exposed brick or cement. But not all tension rods are created equal. That’s why we have some recommendations for you.
Since they need drilling and strong anchors, regular rods will cause permanent damage to a wall. This is a problem, especially if your space is temporary, like a rental, or if you expect to move things around a lot, like in an event space or pop-up shop. Installing regular rods will also need power tools and time. A tension rod is quick and easy.
