Start by measuring the window. To make a room feel taller, hang rods 4-6 inches above window frames. Extending the rod 3-6 inches beyond both sides of the frame makes a window feel grand and allows more light to shine through when drapes are open.
The length of your drapes can have great impact on the look of a window too. For a clean, casual look, hang drapes so that they fall just a 1/2 inch above the floor – especially if you open and close your drapes frequently. For a luxurious puddle effect, add 6-8 inches to the rod-to-floor measurement of the drape.
Decorative rods, finials, holdbacks and ties are like the jewelry of a room, defining a window with added texture and detail. Choose from our wide range of styles like grommets and clip rings, and finishes like antique bronze or pewter, to complement your drapes and create a look you love.
