Wrought Iron drapery hardware is a very versatile style window treatment because depending on your finish and finial choice, you can create a design that will look perfect in any room. Traditional rustic finishes like black, rust and iron combined with arrow or ball finials will provide a classic look. And, many wrought iron collections feature more contemporary colors like gold, pewter and even white. Plus, you'll find finials ranging from simple geometric shapes to elaborate and ornate floral designs. No matter what style you're after, you'll find it in a wrought iron complete set.
While browsing wrought iron curtain rods, it's important to consider the pole construction. Actual forged wrought iron is extremely heavy and many wrought iron style drapery rods are made from hollow core material, not solid iron so it doesn't weigh as much. If it's important to you that your window treatment be constructed from solid metal poles, make sure to buy a set that isn't specified as hollow-core. Just don't forget to account for the added weight while you're installing your rod.
You can add optional rings to many complete wrought iron curtain rod sets. Typically, you'll need about four rings for every linear foot of pole. But, you may need more or you may need less depending on your curtain type. If you're hanging pinch-pleat draperies, an easy way to determine how many rings you need is to count the number of pleats in your curtain.
