Grommet drapes are attached with grommet rings through which the drape rod is passed for the purpose of hanging it on windows and doors. Most grommet drapes have silver-toned accents, so if you have another metal color, such as brass or copper that is featured strongly in your home, the metals may clash. It can be worth looking a little harder to find grommet drapes with gold-toned, brass, black or white hardware to better coordinate with your interior decor. If you are going to pick drapes with silver-colored grommets, purposely mixing metal colors in your home can create an eclectic, carefree look and make chrome or aluminum eyelet window coverings fit in well. Modern interiors tend to suit larger curtain rods and grommet styles best.
Smaller looks can appear too fussy and detailed for the clean lines and spaciousness associated with modern decors. Smooth-textured drape rods, solid-color or graphic printed fabrics, and large metal grommets can capture the modern aesthetic. Romantic interiors, on the other hand, may be more flattered by smaller, more detailed grommets, a thin, textured rail or rod and floral printed fabric. More traditional or eclectic interior styles often look attractive in either large or small grommet drapes.
