What is Drapery Hardware?

Drapery hardware is a term that refers to the range of items that serve to hold your drapery in place, allow it to move, and provide your drapery with the functionality it is engineered to have. Drapery hardware can come in many colors, finishes, patterns, textures, and offer varying reliability and maintenance. Our team at Unusual Designs will listen to your ideas and goals for your window treatments and point you in the direction of the right style of drapery hardware for your needs.

Styles of Drapery Hardware

Drapery hardware comes in all shapes, sizes, styles, and elements. At Unusual Designs, you can purchase different hardware for different rooms or work with our designers to purchase a set of hardware that will include everything you need.

  • Curtain Rods. Curtain rods are a timeless and traditional form of drapery hardware where curtains or drapery slide along the rods to open and close. Curtain rods must be sturdy enough to hold the heavy weight of your fabric and are offered in different lengths and diameters to fit your curtains.
  • Traverse Tracks. Traverse tracks are similar to curtain rods, only they contain a series of hooked wheels along a track. This style of drapery hardware is often used for tall windows or sliding glass doors but can also be used to hang curtains as a room divider or closet door.
  • Curtain Rod Brackets. Curtain rod brackets are an essential element of curtain rods or traverse tracks that are used to hold them in place. In addition to their functionality, curtain rod brackets can drastically alter the appearance of your drapery. Depending on the style and location of your drapery, you can choose different curtain rod brackets to create the look you want.

  • Finials and End Caps. Finials and end caps are decorative pieces of hardware that sit on the end of curtain rods and act as stoppers so your drapery does not slide off. While finials and end caps have an operational purpose, they also come in different designs and styles such as metal spheres, glass knobs, leaves, and other decorative elements to add elegance to your windows.
  • Rings. Rings are used to allow pleated curtains to traverse curtain rods. Rings are available in a few shapes, including round and square and can match the color and diameter of your curtain rod.
  • Wands. Wands are a form of drapery hardware that can be used to pull draperies or curtains along a rod or traverse track. Wands are available in a variety of materials and sizes so you can find the right fit for your windows.
  • Tie Backs. Tie backs are an important style of drapery hardware that keep your curtains out of the way when your drapery is open. Some draperies come with tie back tassels, but we also offer a selection of tie backs in other materials such as wood or iron.

Things to Consider when Selecting Drapery Hardware

  1. The Aesthetic of your Existing Space. As mentioned, drapery hardware can be an added aesthetic element to any room in your home. Choosing between wood or metal drapery hardware can alter the appearance and atmosphere of a room and is something to consider when you are deciding on the right hardware for your project.
  2. Window Dimensions. The height and width or your windows will be crucial to selecting the proper drapery hardware. While the width of your windows may affect how long your curtain rod will be and where it will need to be installed, the height of your windows may affect where your tie backs will need to be hung.
  3. Desired Drapery Operation. Different types of drapery hardware offer different types of functionalities for your drapery. Our team at Unusual Designs can help you select the right drapery hardware for your needs.
