Best Kids Curtain Rod Finials for the Baby's Nursery
Curtain rod finials are showing up in all the pictures of decorated kids rooms. Decorative drapery rod finials are nothing new but it's amazing how they are being used to dress up old lamps and plain wooden poles. Remember when replicas of antique pineapple finials were all the rage?
Well, they are still being used after all these years in traditional home decor. But what I would like to show you today are cute, colorful finials that you will want for your kids' bedroom or the baby's nursery. There are sweet bunny rabbit finials, bear finials and all kinds of finials to pop on the baby's crib, your kids' bed posts and they come in all shapes reflecting stylish themes.
The primary use of finials started out to be purely functional rather than decorative. They were designed to hold back formal drapery panels or to hold the lampshade in place. Most of us associate drapery finials with heavy, old-fashioned window treatments and lamps. But look at them now; they are funky, fun and look so cool in a baby's nursery or an older kid's room.
Drapery finials have been given new life with all of the motifs, colors, and materials that you could ever imagine. Any metal finish, that you could have in mind to complement your chandeliers are readily available. There are lovely finials in:
Black Wrought Iron
As you can see there are possibilities for each and every style of decor from modern to rustic you'll have plenty of choices. No longer will you have to settle because there are only a few choices to work with.
Decorating details that extended to drapery and curtain rod finials and the like are something you say all the time in formal dining rooms, living rooms and nicely appointed dens. As people are now entertaining more and more in their homes, more attention is being paid to how the bedrooms and bathrooms look. Many times while the men are watching football on television, the hostess is giving a tour of her home and sharing decorating tips and resources with her friends.
Even the kids rooms are perfectly coordinated from the themed area rug on the floor to the figural curtain rod finials. In the baby's nursery, finials selected according to the baby's chosen nursery theme can be used on the baby's bed posts.
