Draperies. Friday , August 17th , 2018 - 07:43:03 AM
Traverse drapery rods with cords don't have to be boring. Some homeowners gravitate away from traverse rods because they think they have to be plain, white metal rods with cords. But, that isn't the case. Drapery hardware manufacturers have become experts at constructing functional traverse rods that look exactly like a wood pole, or a decorative metal pole. Many decorative traverse rods have finial choices and fully operational rings. One of the leading makers of decorative traverse rods is Gould NY. Their patented top channel traverse design will fool anyone looking at the rod into thinking it's a beautiful wood pole with rings, not a traverse rod.
Most importantly, use your creativity when decorating with draperies. We often associated drapes exclusively with windows, but there are other ways to utilize these features. For example, a four-post bed becomes even more dramatic if the posts are decorated with elegant draperies. In addition, you can create a private veranda by hanging drapes on open sides of a sundeck if you live in a dry climate. As is the case with any kind of decorating, always try to match your personality with the style of your room and use draperies to highlight your style while maintaining the flow of that room. There are endless possibilities for decorating with drapes and you should never let your imagination be stifled.
My colleagues and I in the interior design industry began to notice this fundamental shift in homeowner expectations a few years back. Week after week, "Design On A Dime" showcased homeowners creating stunning interior spaces using simple and inexpensive objects without the aid of an interior designer. Instead of hiring a professional designer, homeowners are more and more frequently opting to decorate their home themselves. While doing-it-yourself can be rewarding, there are some interior design tasks where the help and advice of a professional can actually save you money in the long-run. Choosing your drapery hardware is one of those tasks.
Rods. No matter which kind of curtains or drapes you adorn your windows with, you will need rods upon which to hang them. There are a variety of drapery rods available, constructed of aluminum, steel, wood, bamboo, and other materials. You can also buy extension rods or rods that fit together to ensure you get just the right measurement for your windows. You will need traverse rods if you plan on hanging draperies that you can adjust by using a wand or pull cord. You can get either one way or two way traverse rods, depending on how you want to be able to open and close your drapes. If you won't be using the pull cord option, then you can just choose from standard curtain and drapery rods. Basic curtain rods will fit into brackets mounted above or near the window while you can also use straight rods that give you the option to add decorative finials to the ends.
Draperies can be used with or without window blinds to create an aesthetically pleasing window treatment for your home. Not all draperies have the insulated backing so you can get them with or without this feature. Draperies come in a wide variety of fabrics so if you don't necessarily need window treatments that offer further insulation, you can still get the beautiful look and feel of draperies without that feature.
Back in the early 1980's, CNN changed our daily lives and invented the 24 hour news cycle. The cable television industry has continued to evolve - keeping up with our steadily growing appetite for more and better information. Recently, the popularity of HGTV and other "do-it-yourself" cable networks has fundamentally changed the way we, as homeowners, approach the care, maintenance and decoration of our homes. Instead of hiring a handy-man or interior designer, we're learning how to tackle increasingly more complex tasks ourselves - without the aid of an industry professional.
