How to Install Blackout Curtains

  1. Rod Placement. Choose where to place your curtain rod.
  2. Bracket Placement. Use a pencil and tape measure to mark where you will place the brackets.
  3. Attach Brackets.
  4. Hang Curtains.
  5. Prepare Curtains.
  6. Attach Drapery Hooks.
  7. Prepare Panels.
  8. Attach Magnetic Strips.

Additionally, what is the proper placement of curtain rods? The ideal position for the curtain rod is 6 inches to the left/right of the window trim. You may need to make adjustments based on how much linear space is needed for the curtain fabric to hang easily and look “full”. The finials, or decorative ends of poles may extend past the 6 inches.

Also asked, how do you install twist and fit curtain rods?

Twist-and-fit curtain rods save installation time, too.

  1. Measure the distance of the window opening, from one side of the interior to the other side, with a tape measure.
  2. Slide the rubber ring onto the thin portion of the twist-and-fit curtain rod so that it is about two inches away from the thicker portion.

Should curtains touch the floor?

The fabric should just touch the floor or hover half an inch above. This is also a great approach for café curtains (short panels that cover only the lower portion of a window and hit the sill), which work well in spots like the kitchen and bathroom, where long drapes aren't practical.
