A Word about Drapery Hardware

When thinking of drapery hardware. a standard traverse rod or a basic pole with brackets comes to mind for most homeowners- and rightfully so,because drapery hardware is the most functional element of a window treatment
Many types of supports are designed to remain unseen, allowing the curtains to draw all the attention.But other types are meant to be visible, offering decorative impact as well.

In fact, you can think of some drapery hardware as being jewelry for your windows. Finials,holdbacks, drapery pins, and swag holders come in an endless array of motifs- from suns and fleur-di-listo curlicues and Ram’s heads. Even rods and poles have decorative possibilities. They are available in a variety of materials, including metals (brass,cast and wrought iron, steel, and gold and nickel-plated), plastic and wood. Faux finishes, such as Verdegris and marbling, are also favorite ways to customize fittings

If your drapery hardware will be visible,you can choose a style that compliments the curtain’s design, but contrasting it can be equally effective. For instance, if the treatment is a tabbed curtain in a sheer fabric, you can play against the delicacy of the fabric by choosing a narrow. wrought-iron pole with a shepard’s crook finial

Curtain Rods as Window Treatments

A curtain rod is the most functional means of supporting a window dressing. Because a curtain rod features a track system, it is the easiest type of drapery hardware to operate. The system consists of plastic or brass runners that glide along the track. Brackets are attached to the wall to hold the track (unless it is ceiling mounted). Usually a cord pulley adjusts the runners, but some are moved by hand. Typically, a curtain rod is utilitarian looking, not decorative. If the curtain’s heading won’t be shown, the rod is often hidden behind a valance, cornice or swag.

Poles and Finials

Because of it’s decorative nature, a pole with finials can command as much attention as a window dressing. A pole is fixed to a window by brackets (use sockets for inside mounts). Unless it’s a tabbed or rod-pocket curtain, the treatment will require curtain rings or cafe clips to hang from the pole. These usually match the material and finish of the support. Cafe clips can be adorned with motifs such as stars or leaves

Wooden Poles- The types of wood range from the inexpensive(Pine and Beech) to the expensive (Mahogany and Ebony). It can be left unfinished, stained or painted. Finishes include metallic, verdegris, gilt, and faux marble. The pole can be turned to feaature fluting (rounded grooves). To make rings glide smoothly, use silicone spray on the top of the pole
