With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which curtain and drapery hardware will perfectly complement your personal style and home décor. However, at Beginning to End Interiors, we know that even the finest of details are important when it comes to home décor. That’s why we want you to have the perfect hardware to match your beautiful custom curtains and draperies.

Pick Your Perfect Finish

First and foremost, you need to pick out the finish of your curtain rods. According to Designing Home, metal finishes come in wrought iron, aluminum, chrome, brass and oil-rubbed bronze. For wood, finishes range from natural blond to dark espresso colors. You can choose the perfect finish for your home based on the color of your curtains and your existing décor. Ultimately, it will come down to your design expertise and personal taste! However, a fact that most people don’t know is that wooden rods have to be turned to prevent bowing, and so require a little more work. If you don’t want to have to constantly fuss with your drapery hardware, then a metal rod is your best bet!


According to Maria Killam, slimmer rods usually are more appealing to the eye than fatter rods. Try to purchase curtain and drapery rods that are close to one inch in diameter. Also, make sure to take into consideration the size of your window. According to Better Homes & Gardens, most rods are adjustable but some poles might not adjust. A good rule of thumb is to measure the window’s width and add four inches on each side. This way you can draw the curtains all the way back to let light into the room. Careful measurements are very important!


Details can make all the difference. Finials are the finishing detail to your drapery hardware. Draw attention to your drapery with detailed and intricate finials or opt for a simple ball finial for a more subdued look. But remember to keep in mind your curtain rod finish when picking out finials. You’ll want your finials to be the same finish as your curtain rod. That way your look will be clean and polished!
