It is just as easy as that.
If you have bought a new piece of drapes and wonder about perfecting its position to improve your room’s appearance, well, this is for you.

Methods To Hang Rod Pocket Curtains
A perfect curtain should embody the windows and ceiling of a room, making the overall appearance flawless.
Hanging these curtains can be divided into two methods: standard rod pocket curtains and ringed curtains.
But before we start, you should adequately measure your curtain and its rod to your window size.
If your windows are 15 feet wide, you will be needing a curtain of 30 feet wide or double curtains measuring each a width of 7.5 feet.
However, it may be up to your preference in having the measurements, or better, you can consult an interior designer in this matter.
In terms of height, your curtain rod placement must be an inch or two away from the ceiling itself.
This way will give your curtains the best appearance where it shows the windows a more prominent look than usual.
So, let’s go to the methods on how to hang rod pocket curtains:
Method #1. Standard rod pocket curtains
First, observe your curtains if it has exits on both sides. If so, you can use a standard curtain rod.
These rods have distinct sizes, so you can assess your curtain’s specifications before hanging them on your windows.
If you already have your rods, insert them from the other side.
Then, carefully slide it until it reaches the other side.
Method #2. Curtains with metal rings
This method can also apply to standard rod pocket curtains containing rings in their topmost part.
First, if the curtains come with hooks, insert them into the curtains. Then, you can insert the rod inside the hooks.
Second, if your curtain is in pencil pleats, you should find the included plastic hooks in the curtain.
Then, please insert it into the braids or ridges of the curtain every three to six inches in length.
Next, find the threads that hand on the ends of the curtain. Pull them apart and see the curtain top compress.
You can finally hang your curtains if you finished this step. Congratulations!

Tip #1. Measurement
You should take into assessment the size of the curtain and the window.
Make sure to know the depth of the window molding in understanding the size of your drape brackets.

It would help if you considered that the curtain brackets should be positioned about half a feet from the window frame’s outside rim.
This one will allow more sunlight to your room, contributing to a comfortable atmosphere for everyone.
Tip #2. Mounting rods and hanging drapes
In perfecting mounting and hanging your curtains, you must consider using proper tools and safety measures.
Use a screwdriver in installing the brackets, ensuring the edges are equal in distance and height.
For safety, make sure to use a ladder in climbing higher spaces to avoid any injuries.
Also, inputting in bulkier drapes, you may want to put in wall anchors to secure the brackets.
In placing your drapes on its rods, you should loop them carefully in each opening.
If not, you can attach the curtain itself using rings or clips.

You can hang your curtains without a rod too.
Finally, you should observe the surrounding space if there are fixtures or any furniture damaged during installation.
