Welcome to Rods, Poles and Finials by interiordezine.com. A curtain pole or rod is a rail or track which a curtain or balance is hang from. Poles or rods are available in many different materials – timber, brass, wrought iron, bamboo, powder coated steel, and painted timber. They usually have coordinating rings that fix to the hooks on the heading of the curtains. Curtain Rods or Poles are a simple and effective way to add decoration to your windows. They are easy to install and you can coordinate the finials with holdbacks and other pieces of hardware providing a fluid designer look. Finials are the decorative fixing at the end of the poles. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, some simple, some complex, from the traditional fleur de lys, and arrowhead to the fruity pomegranate and pineapple, and back to nature with acorns, scallop shells, along with the simple colonial turned wood balls. A more contemporary type of pole system is the tensioned steel wire, which does not impose on the windows. This is used with a grommet top style of curtain. A simpler style of rod is a tension rod, which gets positioned between the window frame, and is held there by a spring tension system. This is frequently used for shower curtains. So that is the basic information we have on Rods, Poles and Finials.
