You also have the finials, brackets and scones. Brackets are for supporting the rod or pole. Scones are decorative brackets and sometimes have fabrics threaded in them. As for finials, it's clear that they serve a solely decorative function. And there you have it, drapery. Now I know that a lot of us aren't very flexible with our budget and other than worrying about whether we can afford quality, we also want to get custom drapery hardware for that personal touch. Well, we shouldn't worry because there are stores that cater to those who are on a budget and should stick to it, so no worries.
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.
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.
Blackout drapery is an important aspect to the overall design of your space. To begin with, it poses an important function in blocking out unwanted light to a specific area; generally in bedrooms for people who work nights and sleep during the day. As such, these unique accessories consist of thick and heavy fabrics that exhibit both longevity as well as extreme efficiency in their functionality.
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.
One thing we should remember though when shopping for draperies and its hardware is to decide whether we want them decorative or functional. When we shop, we think of whether what we're buying is cheap or expensive. However, we have to realize that as long as we go for quality, something, which may seem expensive now is actually cheap in the long run. So let's talk about what consists of drapery hardware. First we have the curtain pole or rod. Like all the other drapery hardware, the curtain pole or rod can come in materials like wood, chrome, and plastic. This is where you attach the ringers for the curtain. So the main purpose of this hardware is for support. They can come in the form of regular rods, hinged rods and motorized rods.
