If you’re looking for modern drapery hardware, you can’t go wrong with polished chrome. Polished chrome is one of today’s hottest new metals. It is ideal for modern or contemporary interiors, but works great in transitional homes as well. With interiors shifting to a cleaner and fresher look, drapery hardware is right on trend with smaller diameter rods, new finishes and stunning finial choices.
Several of our hardware vendors have added polished chrome curtain rods and black nickel to their lineup. (Black nickel is another great option for modern interiors. It has the shine of polished chrome, but in an almost black finish.) One of my favorite drapery hardware lines has come out with a new collection of finials as well. This collection uses a rod with a diameter of just over 1”. Large enough to be seen, but small enough to give today’s fresh look. While they have several “standard” finials available, I’m especially excited to see their new collection “Sahara Ice”. It includes faceted acrylic finials, as well as finials with “diamond” crystal accents. Of course, more subtle options are available for the less daring. Much of our special order hardware is very affordable – providing options for a lower cost than many traditional retailers. The best part is getting the custom details you can’t get from the “one size fits most” hardware suppliers. Even if you’ve purchased your window treatments elsewhere, we’d love to help add the quality and beauty you are looking for to finish your look!
