If you need a larger scale drapery hardware treatment, but the standard three inch diameter is just too overwhelming for you window, you can try the two and three quarter inch drapery rods from the Zabala collection. Forest Group has created a collection of drapery rods that create a large impact, but not too large. These upsized wooden curtain rods will look great on high windows or unusually long windows. While the most common large scale drapery hardware size is three inch, many times they are simply too big for your interior design. The two and three quarter collection gives you the same impact as a three inch, but the finials and accessories are slightly smaller in scale.
When selected one of the larger diameter drapery hardware collections, you should always consider the viewers perspective. The higher a treatment hangs, or the wider the treatment extends, the larger the pole diameter should be. A smaller one inch or one and three eights inch curtain rod would look too petite for a high window even though it will do a fine job in supporting the weight of your curtains. Small poles on high or long windows look out of scale. The reverse is also true. Large scale drapery hardware installed at eye level or on small windows tend to overwhelm the viewer. It's important to keep perspective in mind when choosing a large scale treatment because sometimes bigger isn't always better.
The two and three quarter inch wooden curtain rod collection from Forest Group includes several decorator grade lacquers and varnishes. The real wood construction of the drapery hardware collections offers a uniformity between components. The varnishes provide a true furniture grade finish and the lacquers really stand out on ornate finials and brackets.
Standard wall mount brackets and inside mount sockets are both available within this collection so you will be able to hang your curtain rod in any opening. With the larger scale, it's important to install your brackets securely and use one about every four feet.
