* 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.
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.
Manually operated rods offer an alternative to mounted draperies that need to draw. This type opens and closes by manually pulling the drapes to the desired position. The last type of drapery rod is stationary. This type of rod will slide through a rod pocket along the top of the drapery. Stationary rods can be wood or metal and are on grommet, rod pocket, or tab top drapes. When measuring for drapes, check for obstructions. For example, do you have a low soffit or kitchen counter ending right up to your patio door? Do you plan on adding a top treatment, valance, or cornice? If not, consider a decorative rod. To measure your length, measure about 4-5 inches above your opening.
Drapery panels can drastically change the look of a room. You can use them in addition to blinds to add color and warmth to a space. They also block out light, insulate drafty windows and add privacy. However they can be overwhelming to shop for. There are hundreds of color and styles to choose from, not to mention the hardware. I will try to help you narrow it down by touching on a few subjects.
If your using a decorative rod, poke the pin in at 1-1/2 inches from the top. If non-decorative white traverse rod, then make it 1-3/4 to 2 inches from the top. Depending on how the drapery is packaged, most likely it will have wrinkles. I recommend steaming out the wrinkles after the panels are hung. A portable hand held steamer works well and is what I use. Follow the manufactures recommendations as some fabric especially silk, cannot be steamed. Lastly, after you steam, you want to train your fabric to hang nice. Some fabric looks great out of the package, but most do not. They need a little extra work, but its worth the results. What you can do is tie the fabric. First cut 3, 4 foot long strips of plastic about 4 inches wide.
Popular Styles. Getting into the styling of these accessories, there are a number of different designs that suit specific elements in a room. While in fact many people are simply looking for the light blocking element that blackout drapery presents, it is also important to some of these people to avoid styling clashes with other pre-existing accessories in their space. Fortunately, many designs of blackout drapery consist of solid, neutral based colors without many patterns or details that would otherwise make them difficult to incorporate into a theme. Usually the designs on blackout drapery are fairly simple and not as intricate as many of the mainstream drapery designs.
