To accent your drapery, you can use decorative drapery hardware. This can make your window stand out even more and provide an attractive design piece to your room. Drapery hardware can be found in a variety of styles and materials. You can find wooden poles or beautiful wrought iron rods. These do vary in cost so a nice alternative is to find less expensive rods made of a faux material that looks fairly close to the original. A different option, if you are hanging regular pleated curtains and don't care about the design of the hardware holding them up, is a typical traverse rod that uses a string to pull open the drapes.
