This includes the height of the curtains above the windows and the time when they reach the floor. Read this article carefully to learn more about how to hand curtains.

STEP 2: Start With Installing Curtains Rods

Now you need to install the curtain rods. To install the curtain rod, you need to measure its space and mark the position of the bracket on the wall.
Mark the position with any chalk or pencil, then use a level to ensure that the pencil marks are evenly marked. After marking the correct position, use a drill to install the bracket in place. Then hang the rod on the bracket.

STEP 3: Hang Your Curtains

Now hang the curtains. Different types of curtains can be directly attached to the curtain rod but the style or type of curtain will determine how you’ll hang the curtains. I Have explained the different types of curtains along with instructions on how to hang curtains:

Installing Goblet and Pleated Drapery

Goblets and pleated curtains are usually hung with curtain pins and loops. To install a cup-shaped curtain or pleated curtain, you must insert the curtain pin into the curtain buttonhole and curtain ring. After installing the pin and ring, the curtain can be hung on the curtain rod.

Installing Rod Pocket Curtains

The process of installing a trolley pocket curtain is slightly different. For these types of curtains, you must insert the curtain rod into the top of each curtain panel, and then connect the rod to the bracket.

Installing Grommet Drapery/Curtains

Grommet curtains have extra fabric on each side of the panel for completely covering the window. This type of drapery has a unique installation method. When installing a grommet curtain, you must insert the curtain rod into the S-shaped grommet hole & then pass the curtains in it. This way these curtains will be installed well.

So, once the curtain is on the curtain’s rods, you need to remove the excess fabric at the end of each panel and fold it onto the wall. This will complete the look of your buttonhole curtain.

STEP 4: Finish Your Curtains

So, you have finished installing your curtains. You’ll see that curtains may wrinkle or bend from the packaging. This is normal. After the curtains are hung for a period of time, these wrinkles usually flatten out.

Tips

If you want to speed up the wrinkle removal process, you can use the garment steamer before or after installing the curtains. This is easier to accomplish after installation because the curtains are already hung and all the fabrics are more easily accessible. 

However, please pay attention to your heat settings and use your unique fabric materials carefully to ensure that the curtains are not damaged due to flow or pressure.

Final Words!

Installing curtains is not much daunting, it just needs a bit of care to properly install. I hope now you have an idea about how to hang curtains and will try to install your window dressing on your own.
