Our advice Buying Guide

Modern curtain holdbacks are beautiful additions to window treatments. As you know, they’re placed on walls to hold curtains back. But, you should also know that you can use holdbacks to give a curtain a softer look and that’s only by placing the holdbacks higher on a wall. You can place them halfway down a curtain’s length as well for a more pleated appearance or effect.

As the market is awash with incredible modern curtain holdbacks, here’s a guide on how to choose the one that’s perfect for your space:

What are the best materials for modern curtain holdbacks?

  • Metal - Modern curtain holdbacks made of metal are ideal for holding back heavier curtains. They also work on windows that get direct sun exposure as they don’t become brittle even after receiving lots of UV rays. A metal holdback is either zinc plated or brass.
  • Plastic - A plastic curtain holdback is available in various sizes and shapes, but homeowners almost always choose ones that are in white as they blend well with window treatments. We suggest you avoid using a plastic holdback to hold back a window that receives direct sun exposure as the material can become brittle over time.

What are the most popular styles of modern curtain holdbacks?

Modern curtain holdbacks are designed to be decorative as they can be seen clearly when they're in use. Using a decorative holdback will help you create an elegant window covering, so consider the options we’ve listed below as they are some of the favorites among homeowners:

  • Nylon Curtain Holdbacks - Most nylon holdbacks are transparent so they are best used with curtains that have large patterns, bold colors, and prints.
  • Rubbed Bronze Curtain Holdbacks - These decorative options come with button-shaped caps made of metal. They give off a masculine and modern look.
  • Matte Nickel Holdbacks - Matte nickel options often come with decorative glass balls that are colored to work in a wide range of home décor and window treatments.
  • Carved Wooden Holdbacks - Carved wooden holdbacks can take any shape under the sun, but they often resemble a shapely stopper, simple wooden stick or stick barrette which is great at anchoring curtains.
  • Wrought Iron Holdbacks - A wrought iron curtain holdback that you can easily purchase online resembles a garland. It is incredibly stunning, especially in traditional spaces.
  • Novelty Holdbacks - There are holdbacks available that have fun silhouettes to suit children’s rooms and bathrooms. They can resemble animals or cartoon characters.

How to install curtain holdbacks?

When installing a modern curtain holdback, the first thing you need to do is determine its placement. Most people love placing them halfway up their curtains or a third from the bottom. When you’ve settled on the placement, mark it and perform the same process to the other side of your window.

As soon as you’re happy with the positions of the curtain holdbacks, you can then attach the plugs or screws that come with the holdbacks using a drill. If the holdbacks you’ve bought come with specific installation instructions, perform the process as per the instructions of the manufacturer to avoid making mistakes and needing replacements.
