There are endless options for drapery hardware – for your drapes, valances, and other window treatments. Below we’ll show some of the many options. One thing for sure, if the fabric is stunning, the hardware really isn’t what will demand attention, so it’s not necessary to break the bank for the most expensive hardware. In these photos it is very noticeable, but that’s mainly because it is the subject matter of the blog!
|The silk drapes are so luxurious that there is no need for fancy
hardware, this Greensboro homeowner opted for simple metal rods that
do not compete with the beautiful transom window.
|For this window treatment, we put tabs tops on the silk drapes (instead
of wooden rings). This is a nice option when you won’t open and close
the drapes very often.
|The hardware for this window treatment is a clean and contemporary grommet
style. This allows you to oe drapes without the need for wooden rings.
|If you do not intend to open and close your drapes, short rods are a nice look. For
this Greensboro NC home, we put wooden rings on metal rods. The wooden
drapery rings are an upgraded look, they’re more substantial than metal rings.
|This set shows rings and finials that match the rods, but
the rings can also be a contrast color.
If you have window treatments in several rooms, it’s nice to use a variety of hardware, for example
you could use black rods and finials in one room, with a walnut finish in another room. The you could add metal hardware in a third room. As long as they compliment each other, there’s no need for the hardware to match.
