Our comprehensive guide will help you choose the right curtains and hardware, measure your windows, and install your curtains with ease.

Choosing the Right Curtains

The first step in hanging curtains like a pro is choosing the right curtains for your space. Consider the following factors:

  • Style: Do you want curtains that are formal or casual? Do you prefer a bold pattern or a solid color?
  • Function: Do you need curtains that block out light or provide privacy?
  • Length: Do you want curtains that just cover the window or ones that pool on the floor?

Once you’ve determined your preferences, browse our extensive collection of curtains to find the perfect match for your space.

Choosing the Right Hardware

Choosing the right hardware is just as important as choosing the right curtains. Consider the following factors:

  • Rod: Choose a rod that complements your curtains and fits your window size.
  • Finials: Finials are decorative pieces that attach to the ends of the rod. Choose finials that match your decor style.
  • Brackets: Brackets hold the rod in place. Choose brackets that are sturdy and match your rod and finials.

At HomeFurnishingsByDesign, we offer a wide selection of curtain hardware to fit any style and budget.

Measuring Your Windows

Before you can hang your curtains, you need to measure your windows. Follow these steps:

  1. Measure the width of your window frame.
  2. Add 4-8 inches to each side for proper coverage and fullness.
  3. Measure the height of your window frame.
  4. Add 4-8 inches to the top for a rod pocket or tab top, or 10-12 inches for grommet or eyelet curtains.

Once you have your measurements, you can select the appropriate curtain size and begin installation.

Installing Your Curtains

Now that you have your curtains and hardware, it’s time to install them. Follow these steps:

  1. Attach the brackets to the wall, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Slide the rod through the curtains and attach the finials to the ends.
  3. Place the rod on the brackets and adjust the curtains as needed.

And that’s it! With these tips and tricks from HomeFurnishingsByDesign, you can hang curtains like a pro in no time. For more design inspiration and expert advice, visit our curtains page or schedule a free design consultation today.
