How to Install Your Curtain Panels

Once you’ve selected the right curtains for your room, it’s time to install them. Hanging curtains is not difficult if you start with a little planning and the right set of tools.

Before you get started, take a minute to gather all of the necessary tools:
• Tape measure
• Ladder
• Pencil
• Level
• Hardware (curtain rods, screws, etc)
• Drill and screwdriver

A Note About Curtain Rods
It is as important to select the right curtain rod as it is to choose the right panels for your particular room and windows. Choose a rod that is wider than the window you’re covering. This will allow the curtains to cover the entire window when they’re closed and to hang neatly on either side of the window when open. It can also fool the eye into thinking that the window is bigger than it really is.
