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.
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.
In choosing your drapery hooks for a specific theme or correlating drapery; there are a couple of items to consider that play an important role in determining whether or not the hooks will meld well with the pre-existing conditions of your theme. Each of the choices listed are among the most popular in their respective categories. Wood drapery hooks function well in most themes, including modern. Plastic hooks are more so for those who want a quick solution to their drapery hanging needs; and do not wish to devote a lot of time to the styling aspects of the accessory. Metallic are currently the most popular due to their modern appeal through sleek designs and aesthetically pleasing look all around.
* 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.
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.
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.
