Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Drapery Hardware

Posted on: July 10, 2009

Sometimes you look at your draperies and really want a change, but have neither the desire nor the budget to take on this major endeavor.  Look at your window treatments closely.  If the fabric is still good, and nothing is frayed and worn, you may be able to achieve a brand new look, simply by having them dry cleaned, and replacing the rods or even just the finials on the ends of the rods.

Would you like the look to be more French country or perhaps Tuscan in style?  This is easily done, simply by painting the rod a flat, matte black.  Then all you need to buy is a couple of black open wrought iron finials and some black wrought iron rings.  Hang the freshly cleaned draperies in stationary panels from the rings for a brand new look.

For a nice casual look, buy a wooden rod with a carved wooden finial, and use wooden rings. If you are going contemporary, you might want to use brushed nickel or even stainless, or perhaps just spray your old rod with a high gloss black paint.  Buy contemporary finials, and you’re in business!

Rods can be changed by covering them with a tube of fabric.  Or you can add a cornice above your draperies which will hide your rods completely, and give you an entirely new look. Cornices can be of wood, painted or natural.  They can be wallpapered, upholstered, and covered with fabric that matches or contrasts with your drapery.
