Decorating your windows with curtain panels is an easy and economical way to add some style to your room. There are many looks to choose from and many creative ways to use curtain panels. What any curtain needs, though, is a rod, which youíll have to put up. Hanging a curtain rod isnít difficult at all. The following method words for both single and double curtain rods.
Measure the width of the window youíll be dressing. The rod should measure about five inches more than the window.
Next youíll have to measure out from the window both ways to determine where your brackets will go. The standard is two inches, but if you intend to create a certain look by hanging your curtains higher (making the window look taller) or wider (to make the window appear wider), then youíll need to measure out farther to create that look. Mark the correct spots for the brackets. Check those spots for level before proceeding.
Drill a small pilot hole on the marks you made for the brackets. You should never drive a screw into drywall without making a pilot hole first. If necessary, drill the hole larger to accommodate a drywall anchor. Anchors are required if there is no stud to screw the screws into. Youíll more than likely need them. Once the anchor is in place, screw in the bracket.
After youíve placed the brackets, slide your rod, with the curtains on it, into the brackets. Thatís all it takes.
