Product Spotlight: Kirsh Wrought Iron Drapery Hardware
We recently installed Kirsh Wrought Iron Drapery Hardware at one of our projects after years of only using custom made wrought iron.
So how did it compare and were we happy?
Is this drapery hardware something you should consider for your home improvement project?
Our answer is a resounding YES!
We were so pleased with the product, we decided to spotlight it.
Here’s what we liked best about Kirsh’s Wrought Iron Drapery Hardware:
1) The quality. The pieces look hand-made and old world. The wrought iron is heavy like our custom product.
2) The selection of designs and finishes. You can pick from many more finial designs if you purchase from a custom wrought iron fabricator but Kirsh has a nice selection of finials. Some are shown here. You can see the entire product line online at Kirsh.
3. The availability. Custom work can take 3 or more weeks. Kirsh has product stocked and ready to ship. We were able to find it locally but there’s a great selection available through online stores.
4. The price. We did not have to pay more for what looked like a custom product.
When To Use Wrought Iron Drapery Hardware
It’s always more interesting to mix materials in a room. So access your space. How much wood do you have already? How much glass? How much metal or stone?
If you already have a lot of wood in the room that you’re hanging draperies in, consider using metal for your drapery hardware.
You’ll need to tailor the look of the wrought iron to the overall look of your space. The best way to do this is with your finial and finish selections.
If you want to stay more casual, consider a very simple ball finial. If you want a more formal look, choose a more intricately designed finial.
Obviously, a gold finish is more dressy and will make more of a statement. A blackened or brown finish can look more traditional and more casual.
In general, wrought iron works best in traditional or transitional spaces.
If you have a very contemporary home, you may be better off choosing polished, clean-lined, metal drapery hardware.
We think it’s a good idea to take advantage of magazines and websites like Houzz and Pinterest to find different looks you like. If you end up loving wrought iron, we think you should definitely look into Kirsh Wrought Iron Drapery Hardware.
