Think about what's under and behind your drapery when selecting your drapery hardware. There are three common terms that drapery hardware professionals use when talking about the spacing of your drapery hardware treatment. Projection, clearance and return. Projection typically refers to how far the decorative hardware elements will "stick out" or project into the room from the wall. The return measurement is usually the distance the drapery must bend back to reach the wall when it's hanging from your drapery rod. And, clearance refers to the open space behind the drapery and back to the wall. Or, "how much room do I have behind the curtain to hang another rod, window blind or sheer"? You'll notice that I've qualified each term loosely, and for good reason. Depending on who you're speaking with, either a drapery maker, installer or hardware fabricator; clearance, projection and return can mean different things.
Styles and Designs. Blackout drapery comes in a large array of styles and designs. As such, it is fairly easy to find a corresponding color or fabric that will work well with your pre-existing theme and accessories. Aside from the specific styling elements of the drapery itself, as well as the supplemental hardware and accessories; the thickness of the fabric one other thing people ironically do not look into enough when making their decision.
Every time I assist a person in determining the right drapery treatment for their house, I always present Kirsch at the top of my list. It seems difficult to imagine, but Kirsch has been developing high-end drapery hardware for over a hundred years. That's a really long track record of developing the best products for the interior design field. With collections to match every budget and style, Drapery Hardware from Kirsch is a good place to start your quest for the best window treatment.
Tailor made drapery hardware treatments can also be a choice. If you've looked all through the typical drapery hardware possibilities provided by Kirsch but can't find that ideal drapery rod, don't give up because customized drapery poles aren't as costly as you may think. Estate Rods are wood or metal style drapery rods that work like a traditional traverse rod but mimic a decorative rod with finials. And, a few have decorative rings just for looks. Customized Estate Rods from Kirsch can be created to your exact requirements, so you'll know you're getting exactly what you want. These tailor made rods are a wonderful option for really unconventional windows, or for heavy window treatments that may not operate smoothly on a conventional traverse Rod.
Do you have enough wall space above the panels if your using a decorative rod? When measuring for width, rule of thumb is add 4" to each side of an opening. For example, if your window is 80 inches wide, you would order 88 inch panels. Basically you want your panels to overlap your windows by 4 inches on each side. A couple of exceptions are; if you want your window to appear bigger or wider, then add more than 4 inches, or if you want all or most of your glass exposed when the drapes are drawn open, then add more than 4 inches, this will allow the panels to stack over wall thus maintaining your view. Just make sure you have enough wall on both sides of the window for this. If you order custom drapes, they will come pre-pinned otherwise you must pin them yourself.
Metal drapery rods can give your living area a more contemporary feel. All the way back in 1928, Kirsch invented the very first telescoping metal drapery pole. Today, Kirsch has several metal drapery rod options that are available as metal poles with rings or decorative traverse rods with carriers. Studio coordinates, a specialty line of adjustable decorative metal traverse rods introduced by Kirsch in 1994, is still a very popular option for consumers who require the functionality of operable draw curtains and the look of a fancy metal rod. For window treatments with tab-top draperies, rod pocket draperies or drapery panels with rings, classic 1 3/8 inch metal drapery rods are available in the Mix-And-Match from Kirsch collection. With drapery hardware components like holdbacks, rings, finials and brackets that are inter-changeable between collections, it is possible to style your window treatment to appear either classic or modern by using metal Kirsch drapery hardware.
