Choosing drapery rods is just as much fun as choosing the draperies or curtains you will adorn your windows with. Drapery Rods can dress up inexpensive window treatments to create a truly elegant look and the choices are wide and varied. Whether you are making or buying your window treatments, you will need drapery hardware to attach the curtains or drapes over the windows. Whether you use a lone curtain rod or embellish the look with tie-backs and finials, there are several pieces of drapery hardware you should become familiar with. In addition, you can accent other parts of the room and your entire home with leftover drapery hardware as well. Let's look at some of the types of drapery hardware you may need to consider.
Most people aren't aware of the variety of drapery styles available. From rod pocket drapery to ring top drapery - with clips or rings - to French pleat drapery and grommet drapery, there are styles to complete the look of any interior design. The following five styles are among the most popular: * Rod pocket drapery panels are designed so the curtain fabric wraps around the drapery rod without any clips or grommets. The drapery pocket sewn into the top of the fabric will accommodate any drapery rod up to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Each rod pocket drapery panel comes with fullness so enter the size area you need to cover. Just as with textiles, some drapes are made overseas and some are hand sewn in the USA. Check with manufacturers if you prefer products made in the US. * Ring Top Drapery Panels have clip on rings. The rings then attach to the drape and fit over a drapery rod. Most rings are made of either wood or metal finishes. Rods are also available in wood and metal frames and a variety or finishes - matted metal, different color stains and more. Liners are usually available as an upgrade.
Would Curtains Suffice?. While draperies offer more functionality and usually, more aesthetic appeal than curtains do, draperies are usually not necessary for every window in the home. There are some windows for which curtains may be a better choice. It really depends on your budget, how you want the room to look, and whether you need the insulating properties that draperies afford. For the living room, you may want the more formal look that draperies provide, yet you would most likely prefer curtains for the kitchen.
Draperies in today's lingo generally refer interchangeably to drapes and curtains. However, this is not strictly true. Traditionally, windows would be treated with up to three layers of curtain: a light sash which filters light, a draw curtain to block light completely, and an over-drapery which functioned decoratively only. Moreover, in formal rooms, these layers of curtain may have been covered with a valence to hide hardware. However, modern rooms are treated with draperies differently, and sashes are often called curtains, while draperies are those materials that draw to completely cover a window and block light.
