Drapery Hardware Buying Guide

With all of the choices available, shopping for drapery hardware can seem overwhelming. But don't worry -- you'll get the hang of it. Customize your curtain rods with accessories that provide both function and fashion.

Types of Drapery Hardware

Types of Drapery Hardware

Drapery hardware has a basic purpose: to hang and operate window treatments. Some hardware, such as utilitarian white metal pocket rods and traverse rod hooks, works out of view. But decorative finials, holdbacks, and other hardware is meant to be seen and enjoyed. Enhance your room decor through a wealth of hardware styles, colors, and finishes.

Finials & Endcaps

Finials provide the exclamation point to a curtain rod through many styles and materials, such as forged-iron spears or crystal balls. Endcaps are more like a period; they cap the rod or pole cleanly and simply. You'll find finishes for both types to match any wood or metal rod.

Sconces

Sconces are decorative brackets with a hole in the center through which lightweight fabric may be looped and swooped across a window. Classical and romantic, sconces lend formality to any treatment.

Holdbacks & Tiebacks

These helpers mount to the wall on either side of a window, where they keep curtains from hanging over the glass. Holdbacks are usually a rigid material such as metal or wood, while tiebacks are flexible fabric or cording.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

The first step in finding the right drapery hardware to buy is determining whether your draperies are constructed to hang in place or to open and close. Once you've found the perfect curtain rod (see Decor/Window Treatments/Curtain Rods), look for complementary accessories as the finishing touches. But keep function in mind: Even the loveliest pineapple finial loses its charm if the velvet drape keeps falling down.

Style

Drapery hardware -- some created by interior designers -- includes minimalist steel, intricate enamelwork, and almost anything in between. Consider the tone of your room as well as the color, pattern, and texture of your curtains or draperies.

Finish or Color

Decisions, decisions. Match accessory hardware to your curtain rod for a consistent look; choose a different finish to create lively contrast.

Type of Window Treatment

No matter how good it looks, drapery hardware has work to do. Be sure the items you buy make it easy to open and close your draperies and that they are the most suitable choice for the treatment you have in mind.
