Hanging curtains


Curtains can dress a room in elegance, lighten the room’s mood, or do little more than filter incoming light--it’s completely up to you. Choosing them may take some time, but hanging them can be a breeze.

 

PUTTING UP CURTAINS IS ONE OF THOSE PROJECTS THAT MANY HOMEOWNERS DREAD: IT INVOLVES CREATING HOLES IN THE WALLS, AND MISTAKES OR MIS CALCULATIONS SHOW IMMEDIATELY. Take a deep breath. There’s no reason to let hanging curtains become an exercise in frustration. With the information we’re about to give you and some advance planning, you’ll be able to get it right the first time, every time. Honestly.

 

Hanging curtains Project

There are several decisions to be made long before the measuring and drilling starts, and each is important to the success of the project. First, how much of the window will the curtains cover? Do they need to open and dose? And what kind of hanging hardware do you like?

Step 1. Measure the height and width of the window Make a quick diagram of the window and note the measurements you took Before purchasing curtains or hard ware, decide where you want the curtains to start and stop, and indicate those measurements on your diagram. Attach the brackets for the sheer rod. Place the sheer rod and check for level. Adjust if necessary.
 

Step 2. Attach the brackets for the decorative curtain rod a few inches outside and above the sheer brackets. Use wall anchors if the bracket is not located over a stud.

 

Step 3. Place the curtain over the sheer rod, and then place the rod for the sheer into the mounting plate. Repeat for the decorative curtains and rod.
