Finials. Finials are not absolutely necessary but they are a lot of fun to pick out and decorate with. Finials are the decorative pieces that attach to the end of drapery rods and they come in a wide variety of styles and materials. You can get finials in wood, iron, glass, or you can even get fabric covered finials. Finials can be simple or elegant, modern or antique and go a long way toward dressing up your window treatments.
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.
How you decorate your home is a reflection of your personal aesthetic. There are certain decor elements, like window treatments, that can help you express that style in an effective, direct manner. When it comes to window coverings, it can be hard to find a ready-made product that truly reflects your taste. Custom draperies, however, let you craft the exact appearance you want to implement. No matter what your style is, you will be able to find the right drapery window treatment to suit your vision.
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.
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.
Draperies can be purchased either ready made, semi custom, or custom. Ready make are best if you need it up now. There is a large selection and ship quickly. They are alto the most economically priced. They usually come in sized to fit most common size windows, Next is semi custom. On semi custom the width is fixed and the length is make to your measurements, maximum is about 120 inches. This is a good choice if you have high windows, or if you want your draperies to puddle (form soft folds on the floor).
