Drapery Hardware Adds the Finishing Touch
When deciding to use draperies in your home, it’s important to keep in mind what style, color, and fabric will best complement your furniture and decor. Not to be overlooked in this process is taking time to choose just the right drapery hardware to add the finishing touch.
Drapery hardware is not only functional but also allows you to add a bit of personality to the room.
Drapery hardware consists of curtain rods, finials, tie backs, and drapery rings to name a few. Curtain rods are available in several styles, such as traverse, swivel, and tension. Many of these drapery hardware options are produced in a variety of materials such as: wood, stainless steel, brushed nickel, and antique brass.
Iron Art by Orion is one company that offers hand-crafted decorative rods in innovative styles, such as their Burgundy Collection. Finials can be both decorative and practical, preventing the drapes from slipping off the rod.
Kirsch offers “over 150 inspiring new finials and finish combinations now available on the Wood Trends Collection.”
When tie backs and tassels are used in the right place, they add drama and fashion while holding the drapes in place. Drapery rings come in all sizes and styles made of bamboo, natural materials, and modern metals.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when selecting drapery hardware.
First, determine how much of the hardware will be seen. When the hardware is not so visible it allows the drapery to be the center of attention.
An example of this is using a traverse rod which works well because it allows the drapes to flow freely while providing needed support. If much of the drapery hardware will be visible, it is important to match the hardware with the style of drape. For example, a bamboo rod and finials go well with a contemporary or tropical decor.
