Great Accessories for Curtains

There are a variety of accessories for curtains that can help compliment your window treatment project. Try implementing some of the following accessories to add a touch of flair to your curtains. You can combine all of these ideas or mix and match as you see fit.

Ties Backs

Tie backs are both functional and appealing to the eye. They are used to tie back curtains and also create a stylish look to your window. There are a variety of tie backs available, from simple to elegant and everything in between!


Valances can also compliment your curtains and hide the top portion of your window in order to cover up the curtain track. One way to make your window more appealing in terms of decorative style, is to use valances with lace or tassel fringe. You can also use scarf drapery for a more simple look. Valances are a great way to add color and flair to the room.

Curtain Rods

Don’t plan on hanging up those curtains without a curtain rod! Curtain rods are very easy to find and are also functional and decorative. You can easily find curtain rods at home design and decor stores or your favorite online retailer. You can also make your own curtain rod. Some unique ways to incorporate your personal style is by either painting the rod or using something like a golf club as a makeshift curtain rod.

Add Beads or Lace

If you are looking to make your curtains a little more elegant in style, try incorporating some beads or lace. Adding beads to valances make them pop out and is attractive to the eye. However, if you decide to use beads or lace, do so in moderation. Adding too much lace or beads to your curtains can make them look too busy, especially if the rest of the room is simple in terms of design.

Drapery Rings or Clips

When it’s time to put up the drapes, you should consider the best option to keep your curtains in tact. This means you will have to use something that is both functional and visually appealing. If you are going for a more woodsy look, consider purchasing wooden shower rings. Though the package may say they are for the shower and bathroom, they can also be used to hang up your curtains in the bedroom, office, and every other room.

These are just a few ways to add a little bit more flair to your curtains and drapes. What accessories have you used for your curtains?
