Save money on curtain rods for large windows by purchasing two rods and putting them together.  Custom curtain rods are expensive.  It is more thrift friendly to combine two readily available rods.  Also, some stores sell extra wide rods, like IKEA.

You can also deal with difficult corner windows by using cafe curtain rods.
