Learn More About Draperies

When it comes to choosing the right draperies and even the rods that come along with them, there are some keywords you should know. Some commonly used terms that you may hear when working to find your perfect draperies include:

  • Drapery arms - Shorter than standard rods, a drapery arm flanks a window, as opposed to spanning all of it. This is the ideal option for sections of curtains meant to be used more for accents than full coverage.
  • Finial - The decorative pieces you see at the end of a drapery rod are finials. They are cosmetic only and do not offer functionality.
  • Center support - For long rods and/or heavy curtain materials, center support helps prevent drooping and breakage with your curtain rod. This piece helps prevent the damage that would otherwise be caused by gravity.
  • Traversing rod - This optional piece is used in most instances when you are using a full wall of draperies. This can better hold the weight, as well as makes it easier to use by opening and closing the curtains with a string control at the end.
