Drapery Rod Finials and Windows Close to Walls
I have a question about drapery rod finials and windows close to walls. In our MBR (yes, this is the same project I've posted about recently, for those who've loyally followed!), I would like to purchase new drapery rods because we have a set of corner windows where I'm presently using separate rods and would rather have larger rods with a corner connector.
I found some nice substantial rods that have a corner connector through JCP. I really like the large clear finials on the ends of them.
Here's the problem. The single window on the left side of the bed is quite close to the wall (about 4"). There is room for the finial to fit, but it will create a situation where the rod will only extend about 1.5" past the trim.
On the right side of the bed are the corner windows. I will use a connector for those and a finial on each outer rod end.
Here are what I think my options are:
1. Mount the hardware where needed to use the finial (1.5" outside the trim) and mount the remaining hardware in the same location for all windows, although I would like to hang them further past the trim.
2. Mount the hardware where I would like and simply use end caps on all rods.
3. Mount the hardware for the side close to the wall with an end cap, while still using the decorative finials on the remaining rod ends (other than corner).
I would like to do option #3. Will it look alright to have only one finial on the single window to the left of the bed so that the drapery can be pushed further toward the corner?
Here are some pictures:
Corner windows where I'll use a connector and finals on outsides of each window only:
Tight space between left window and wall (want to use one finial on right side only):
And, yes, I will be raising the rods and using rings so the draperies can be hung higher.
