If you have a window that is unusually long or fairly high off the ground, then you may want to consider bumping up the diameter of your drapery pole treatment. A larger pole diameter looks best when used ten feet or more off the floor or when spanning multiple windows and the Kirsch three inch Wood Trends collection is an excellent option. Featuring up-sized versions of Kirsch's most popular Wood Trends finials, rings and brackets, this collection is the perfect choice when you need to give your drapery hardware the added benefit of a large scale size.
You'll find finial choices ranging from the traditional Oakleaf Cone to the modern, sleek Bristol when you browse the three inch Wood Trends wooden curtain rod collection. And, many of the popular colors like Mahogany, Oak and Satin Gold are available. Standard ribbed wood rings and traditional brackets complete the collection.
When selecting a three inch scale drapery hardware treatment, it's important to consider where you're planning to install the product. Larger scale wood poles and finials are a lot heavier than their smaller scale counterparts. You'll need to make sure that your brackets will be installed into a solid mounting surface like wood studs or window headers. And, the added weight of three inch scale products makes joining wood poles to reach longer lengths more difficult. While you can always use a wood pole joiner screw to combine multiple poles, you must make certain that your center bracket where the two wooden curtain rods meet is installed securely and positioned correctly. Hidden metal support brackets may be required for additional support if your drapery fabric is lined or interlined.
Choosing the correct pole diameter is always a matter of perspective. As the height or length of your pole treatment increases, considering larger pole diameters is always a good idea. Keep in mind that while a three inch treatment may look perfect on a high window, it may be overwhelming on a smaller window at eye level.
