Tips For Hanging Your Curtains – An Expert Guide 

When it comes to decorating a room, curtains can make a big difference. They can add colour, texture, and even improve the functionality of a space. But, hanging curtains can be a daunting task for many homeowners. If you're struggling to hang your curtains, don't worry! We've got you covered with these helpful tips.


Measure Your Windows

Before you even think about hanging your curtains, you need to make sure you have the right measurements. Measure the width and height of your window. A tip from our Creative Director Amy Wilson "If you want to add a touch of luxury to your space, consider allowing your curtains to pool on the floor for an elegant and sophisticated look"


Choose the right curtain pole 

Speaking of curtain poles, there are several types to choose from,  tracks, standard poles, and decorative poles. Make sure you select the right type of pole for your curtains and your window. If you have heavy thick lined curtains, you'll need a sturdy pole that can support their weight. If you have a bay window or an unusual window shape, you may need a custom pole or curtain track. 

Adjust and accessorise

Once your curtains are hung, you'll want to adjust them to make sure they're straight and even. If you have multiple panels, make sure they're spaced evenly and at the same height. You can also accessorise your curtains with tiebacks, valances, or other decorative elements to enhance the look of your space.
