Draperies. Friday , August 10th , 2018 - 07:53:37 AM
Decide how often you're going to open and close your drapery. If you're going to frequently open and close your drapes (also called traversing your draperies), then you'll probably want to choose a traverse style drapery rod. This style of curtain rod has cords that allow you to open or close your drapery easily. Traverse rods can open from the middle, or they can open from one side or the other. The way the drapery opens is called the draw. Split draw traverse rods open from the middle, one-way traverse rods open from either the left or right side.
* Ring Top Drapery comes with sewn in drapery rings. Rings are available in a variety of finishes to accent the drapery hardware and rod. Drapery rings are included with choice of either metal or wood rings. Metal rings generally accommodate a drapery rod up to 1 1/2 inch in diameter while wood rings usually accommodate a curtain rod up to 1 3/8 inch in diameter. * French pleat drapery panels bring a European flair to any home. The tucked pleat in the front brings a quaint charm to any room. These blinds are attached with a clip on the back that hooks into a pin. The fabric appears to sit above the rod, concealing most of the rod except the ends. Decorative ends can be used to dress up the curtains. * Grommet drapery panels have a grommet or bronze ring sewn into the fabric. The hole in the ring is what goes over the curtain rod. Grommet panels are fairly common.
There are various types of shutters and the best alternative to wooden is use of vinyl shutters. Vinyl shutters are basically made up of plastic and they give different feel yet serve same purpose. In other words, they are inexpensive and can completely give you the feeling of wooden shutters. You do not have to spend a lot of money after wooden shutters when you are getting something at a very low price. Traditional wooden shutters had different value and vinyl wood shutters have different value. Whatever the reason is, these both materials play a crucial role in beautification of your room.
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.
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.
Rings. Not all curtains and draperies are attached to the rod using rings. It depends on how the draperies are constructed whether or not you will need the rings. Rings can add a decorative touch though and come in a wide variety of styles. They are easily attached to the rod and the drapes and offer added stability. Rings allow the draperies to easily glide along the rod without getting stuck so for rods that may not be as smooth as others, rings can come in handy.
