D is for Drapery Hardware

The ABC’s of window treatments

 

Panels are a big trend in window coverings right now and a very important part of the treatment is hardware

Rods range in diameter from 1/2” to 3” and can be made from wrought iron, steel or wood.  They have typically been round but now are available in square for a more contemporary look.

There are many finishes and colors…………. black is always a popular choice.  The white poles below contrast against the dark grey walls.

We used these glamorous 3” silver leaf poles in Palm Beach for MAMS Designs.

We finished installing the house with a couple of hours of daylight left !

What ever your style, there is drapery hardware to fit it.

I love the panels and hardware in that second picture, Tammy. The selection out now can be a little overwhelming at times, but I'm so glad that there are so many options.

The rods are the jewelry of the window, and I always pay close attention to that selection. I love the design choices in hardware these days. It makes it so easy to make a great statement. Your work is lovely!

I need you to come to Chicago and teach me how to make my own curtains...Or maybe you could just do them for me and I could watch and maybe entertain you with some light tap dancing? Would that be a good deal?
