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.

  2. In customizing your fabrics for clothing, use specific paints for fabric. Choose colors that suit your personality, style, tastes etc. Avoid using colors that conflict with your skin tones but would rather harmonize with it. You may start from scratch with a plain piece of fabric or you may highlight and embellish a fabric you already have. Practice on an old garment or a fabric swatch to get a feel for the look you have in mind. Add metallic paints or even iron on jewels around the neckline. Consider outlining floral prints with a dimensional paint to accentuate the design.
