Hang Your Curtains By Yourself
Curtains are a key component in our homes though we usually tend to ignore their importance and presence. If you want to hang your curtains by yourself, here are several ways for you. Purchase the curtains that best suit the aesthetic appeal of the room as well as fitting into your budget. Not all windows are nice to look at. Curtains and draperies can help hide those flaws, so choose wisely. Measure your window before buying your curtain rod. Windows are different sizes; even track houses built by the same builder and the same plan can have slight variations. Determine the rod or rods you will need and purchase them. Buy curtain rod or rods; keep in mind your budget because curtain rods have a wide range in pricing. Place pencil marks where you will need to drill for curtain rod holders. Make sure this is level. Place curtains on rod and hang them up.
And here are some tips to hang your curtains. Curtain rods should be 5 inches longer than your window to ensure total coverage. By attaching rods just below the ceiling molding and hanging long curtains you can make short windows look longer. Using horizontal fabric on a valance above draperies can make an awkwardly long window look wider. For windows that are too wide use panels to break it up and not overpower the room.
