Tailor made drapery hardware treatments can also be a choice. If you've looked all through the typical drapery hardware possibilities provided by Kirsch but can't find that ideal drapery rod, don't give up because customized drapery poles aren't as costly as you may think. Estate Rods are wood or metal style drapery rods that work like a traditional traverse rod but mimic a decorative rod with finials. And, a few have decorative rings just for looks. Customized Estate Rods from Kirsch can be created to your exact requirements, so you'll know you're getting exactly what you want. These tailor made rods are a wonderful option for really unconventional windows, or for heavy window treatments that may not operate smoothly on a conventional traverse Rod.
Know exactly what type of drapery you're going to hang before you begin looking for your drapery hardware. Different drapery styles require different drapery rods or curtain rods. A traditional pinch pleat drapery can be installed on a traverse rod or a decorative rod. Swags can be hung on a wood or metal pole or draped between drapery holdbacks or tiebacks. Tab-top draperies are almost always installed on a wood or metal drapery pole. And, ripplefold draperies can only be installed on specially made curtain rods with the help of your drapery maker or workroom.
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.
Lastly there is custom draperies that are made to a specific width and length. You can also choose the header style and fullness. Headers are at the top of the panel that attaches to a rod. Headers are available in many styles, I will talk about some of the most common here. Pinch pleat comes in 3 styles; standard, goblet, and European. These are used for draw drapes or stationary panels. Next there is a grommet, rod pocket and tab top. These are used only on stationary rods.
Drapes and curtains can make a bold statement in every room; at the same time, they can add a subtle elegance that only highlights a picturesque window. However you look at it, decorating with draperies is functional and stylish and there are many options available. Draperies block light and sound and help to manage heat and cold, but they are also a decorators dream as they have the potential to bring your personality into a room. But before we talk about decorating with draperies, let's try to define draperies more specifically.
Do you have enough wall space above the panels if your using a decorative rod? When measuring for width, rule of thumb is add 4" to each side of an opening. For example, if your window is 80 inches wide, you would order 88 inch panels. Basically you want your panels to overlap your windows by 4 inches on each side. A couple of exceptions are; if you want your window to appear bigger or wider, then add more than 4 inches, or if you want all or most of your glass exposed when the drapes are drawn open, then add more than 4 inches, this will allow the panels to stack over wall thus maintaining your view. Just make sure you have enough wall on both sides of the window for this. If you order custom drapes, they will come pre-pinned otherwise you must pin them yourself.
