Regarding this, where should curtain tie backs be placed?

Generally, curtain tiebacks look best when placed one-third of the way from the top or bottom of the curtain. Tiebacks are both functional and decorative elements of a window treatment. These fabric bands or metal hooks hold the drapes or curtains back from the window.

Likewise, what height do you put curtain tie backs? There's no hard-and-fast rule, but I have found that roughly 85 to 90 cm (33 to 35 inches) from the floor is the perfect height for tie-backs. Something to keep in mind: if you want a more tailored look, you may want to place your tie-backs slightly higher to reduce the swag effect.

Hereof, how do curtain tie backs work?

Gather the curtain loosely and wrap the loop-end of the tieback around it one way and the tassel-end around it the other way. Slip the tieback loop over the tassel, arranging it to rest just at the top of the tassel. Adjust the curtain and the tassel and do the same for the other curtain.

How far up should curtain tiebacks be?

Standard lengths for café curtains (commonly used in kitchens) are 24 or 36 inches. Set the height of your tieback. Hang each tieback a third of the way up from the bottom of the curtain. For example, if your curtain is 84 inches long, you would place the tieback about 28 inches from the bottom.
