The 3 Essential Ingredients for a Set of Quality Stair Rods

So you've decided to invest in a new set of stair rods for your home. First, an excellent decision! Second, have you considered all of your options? Here at Stair Rods Direct we know exactly what it takes to create a quality set of stair rods – and in today's blog post we’re going to share that valuable info with you. There are 3 things to look for in a set of stair rods, and here they are...

#1: Finish

Every home has a different interior design and aesthetic. That being the case, it’s important that you choose a set of stair rods which complement your existing décor. This is where the finish comes in. At Stair Rods Direct, we offer a wide range of finishes to suit every home, from the deep matte black to the sparkling chrome, the classic antique brass to the ever-popular pewter. The choice is yours, so be sure to take the time to consider what will work best on your staircase.

#2: Finial

Be honest: do you already know what a finial is? If so, you’re already a step ahead! Put simply, the finial of your stair rods is the tip that covers each end of the rod. These are essential not just from a functional point of view, but also because they can bring a lot of panache and style to a staircase all by themselves. If you’ve never explored the available finial options out there, we’d recommend you take a look today. You’ll find everything from spherical finials, arrow finials, all the way to the classic balladeer finial. You learn something new every day, right?

#3: Rod style

These stair rod ingredients are in no particular order, and it’s a good thing too, because style is one of the most crucial elements of any stair rod. The style of the rod refers to the actual length of the rod itself: you can choose from clean and simple plain options, or something more adventurous, like the spiral or reeded style rods. As with the finish and finial of your stair rods, we’d recommend that you consider the match of each element carefully and imagine it at home on your staircase. Once that’s done, it’s time to get to ordering!
