Curtains rods are one thing that comes into a normal person’s mind when talking about curtains and their accessories. They are available in different materials and sizes. Wooden rods are available for a more natural feel inside while the metal rods come with a variety of finishes. Gold, silver, bronze, and several other metals and metallic finishes are possible on curtain rods.
Hanging rods used for curtains are not something that we change too often. So, the selection must be thoughtful and you should be accurate with what you need. After all, curtain rods are a kind of permanent accessory for draping needs that we screw onto the wall in some way.
The curtain rod must have at least 1 inch of thickness to have the ability to carry heavier fabrics. Curtain rods thinner than 1 inch tend to bow due to the weight of the draping materials, and also, a thicker rod is better to look at. Extending the rod length by 3 to 6 inches is also recommended to get a luxurious look with any fabric and style
Extended curtain rods will stand out of the actual window frame to offer complete coverage. Moreover, they will let the curtain fabric rest on either side instead of laying in front of the window - blocking light and view. Hanging rods without enough supports in between regular distances might also bend a lot due to their disability to hold the weight of the fabrics.
Most people tend to choose the darkest color for the curtain rods so that- they will match with any color shades in the room. You can be inspired by the furniture used inside a room when selecting a curtain rod. It offers a cohesive look for the room even if you choose contrasty colors for other materials and accessories. Another matching process you can try is using a color similar to the draping fabric for the curtain rods. It could provide a minimalistic look for the room.
Wall paints are also another region that you can select a color from - for the curtain rod - to keep them less noticeable while the curtain is in the open state.
Finials on curtain rods
Finials add the finishing touch to the curtain rods by covering both ends. They are one of the most visible parts in the whole drapery in front of a window. They too need enough attention while being selected for a room. Different materials including wood, metal, resin, plastic, and glass are used to make finials
However, not all these materials will work for any room. The overall attitude of the room should be considered before finials. For instance, a crystal finial is not the right choice for outer space. It might seem inappropriate to be used in that space. Instead, crystal finials will make a spacious interior more luxurious.
Keeping a picture of the room and curtain system where you need finials is a good thing to be done when you are in the market for finials. Finials are also available in different shapes and designs which you can try for a unique look. A few of the unique styles in Finials include baseball, crystal balls, animal heads, and more.
You can try the Finial material according to the things used in the room like a dining table or any art pieces. Contrasty finishes are also possible if you are more into a design that stands out for the observing eyes. Finials are available in different shapes. Although, it might not be a good idea to select a shape that you find attractive in hand.
Any shape you choose should come as the cast in the same story told by the whole interior. Finials are replaceable with new ones when you are restyling the interior without much effort
Tiebacks and Holdbacks
It is important to not disrupt the whole interior that you took a lot of effort to create with the last touches. Tiebacks are one of those final touches that are also functionally beneficial. Heavier curtains can be combined to be kept on either side of the window. Thicker drapers can use iron holdbacks that could be attached to the wall.
Traditional interiors can take good advantage of holdbacks by providing the curtains more contrast. Holdbacks and Tiebacks should be selected according to the overall interior look. Contrasty colors are also possible to be used for tiebacks that can offer a more dramatic look.
After all, tiebacks are the right way if your desire is a blended look with curtains, walls, other accessories all combined. Style and matching designs aside, anything that is used along with the drapers should be selected following your interests in colors and materials. Tiebacks are available in lots of styles and sizes alongside traditional and contemporary designs.
Curtain hooks and rings
As the name says it all, hooks and rings are the accessories used to attach the curtain material with a curtain rod or track system. Most of the time, hooks come in colors similar to the curtain rods to blend them as one single accessory. However, you can try different colors for rings with special shapes and designs.
Either you can make them invisible for the eyes or could make them a focus point by trying unique style and color choices. These are not a significant part of curtains when they are being attached to the rods. Instead, the needs change according to the style of drapery you have.
Another aspect of curtain accessories that influences the hooks and rings is the automation of the system. If your curtain has a motor to be installed for remote control and without manual work from your side, the hooks should be selected following their compatibility with the kind of equipment that is available with the motor.
Swags and Pelmets
Pelmets and swags can make the observing eyes concentrate more on them or the lower half of the curtains. These are more recommended for a large room with higher ceilings so that the whole setup would not look congested. A vast range of pelmet designs is available for various rooms.
You can have fun with the design and style of the pelmets following what room is being draped. For kid’s rooms, you could use printed fabrics that have cartoon characters, nature, animals, or anything pleasing to the eyes and makes the room spacious
