I Think You Have to Draw the Columm your selfes like this.

Set The Stringgrids Property:
DefaultDrawing = False

and try this code:


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  // Some data in Colums
  Stringgrid1.Cells[1,1]:='A';
  Stringgrid1.Cells[1,2]:='B';
  Stringgrid1.Cells[2,2]:='C';
  Stringgrid1.Cells[2,1]:='D';
  Stringgrid1.Cells[3,2]:='E';
  Stringgrid1.Cells[3,1]:='F';
end;




procedure TForm1.StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
var
 Txt : String;
begin
  With Stringgrid1.Canvas do
  Begin;
    if (ARow=0) or (ACOl=0) then Brush.Color:=ClSilver
      Else  Brush.Color:=ClWhite;
    Txt:=StringGrid1.Cells[ACol,ARow];
    Case ACol of
      //1 = Left ALignment
      //2 = Center Alignment
      1 : TextRect(Rect,Rect.Right-TextWidth(txt),Rect.Top,txt);
      2 : TextRect(Rect,Rect.Left+Round((REct.Left-Rect.Right/2)-(TextWidth(txt)/2)),Rect.Top,txt)
      Else TextRect(Rect,Rect.Left,Rect.Top,txt);
    End;
    if GDFocused in State then DrawFocusRect(Rect);
  End;  
end;

Try this component, it comes with the source code, and it will give you an idea of how to implement this.
