If you're having guests at your house this holiday season, you're probably scrambling to get the home ready before your visitors arrive. While your space probably looks great, it's easy to fixate on the details that aren't quite right, and assume that your guests will see them too.
But changing the smaller details in your home can really have a positive effect on the way your house looks, and can make all the difference in how you feel about it. One such element that you may want to take a closer look at is the hardware for your window treatments.
Using beautiful hardware is a nice touch that really makes a difference in the appearance of your interior. Particularly if you have heavier drapery like velvet blackout drapes, you want your hardware to be strong enough to withstand the weight of your window treatments, but still look nice, since it will be visible.
This is a great place to use intricate finials. That way, you don't have to change out the entire rod, but it will add a finishing touch that visitors to your home will notice right away.
For sheer drapes or other lighter drapery options, thinner hardware is in order. Choose a lighter rod set in a style that matches that of your window treatments as well as the decor for the rest of the room. While the rod isn't as important on a blackout drape, it is much more visible on this kind of curtain, which means that you should make an effort to pick something nice.
When you're decorating the entire house, it can be hard to remember about the small details like your hardware, but now that you're all moved in, changing these items can make a real difference in the finished look of your home. Now is the perfect time to do it, right before the guests arrive.
