Finials and Drapery Hardware

Windows are the architectural space that bring light into an interior space. Blinds or drapes filter the light, coordinating with the decor of each room. Drapery Hardware detail the window treatments. The range of textures and finishes, finials can be made of metal, glass or wood. Rods and finials are sold separately or in kits, with rings and brackets. Do your windows have treatments with an extra touch?

The variety of rods used with drapery panels are contingent to the weight of the fabric. Wood rods are very traditional, but can be painted to be a more contemporary accent. The weight of the drapery panels is important in gauging the strength of metals rods. Metal affords a lightness that is good for hanging sheer fabric, and heavy metal, such as galvanized conduit support lining fabric such as chenille cottons.


Metal Finials
Some designers combine the textures of wood and metal. With the greater attention given to the detail of the drapery fabric, finials are used at the pinnacle of the window treatment. Often, the drapery hardware is unseen. This is the complement that finials have to windows and their coverings. With the addition of swags and tiebacks, the function of drapes are augmented to draw back the fabric curtain.

Fabrics for Custom Window Treatments

Custom Window Treatments are constructed in a wide range of fabrics, from cotton to poly-taffeta, linen to velvet. Drapery panels, valances and shades incorporate style, texture and color with the interior design of the home d├ęcor. The use of texture, like trims and embroidery, add elegant contrast. The accents of trims can be used with decorative pillows and bedding ensembles, as well as with swags and tiebacks. As the windows allow the light to enter a room, the fabric filters the amount of illumination to suit the occasion.

The selection of fabric patterns and colors are used to soften and lighten the room, as windows yield to the central focus of a room such as a fireplace or a piece of furniture.With the emphasis of security and environment, fabrics veil the view inwards to afford privacy. Shades and drawn panels restrict the light. The textures, color and designs in drapery fabric can be delicate or heavy. The custom window treatments will render control in the amount and quality of the lighting.

A good choose of fabric is made by allowing the function and drape of the treatment to guide the selection of the custom fabric. Custom window treatments are a long term design investment in a home. Quality fabric is a lasting choice. Enjoy the luxury and selection of Emdee fabric for your Custom Window Treatments, Decorative Pillows and Bedding Ensembles.
