Installation curtain rods First and foremost decide whether you want to mount the curtain rod on the window frame or the wall. On consideration here is that often frames are made from oak or other high-quality woods and you may not want to drill into them. Plaster or sheetrock walls are very easy to patch if you change decor later. To determine the proper positioning hold up the rod to the wall using a long carpenters level over the rod to make sure you have the rod level. (Very much a two-person task!) Also mark the placement of the brackets on the wall or frame with a pencil. When doing this you may want to have the curtains mounted on the rod if there is any question about how they will look or their hanging length.
Like most projects youll need to have a plan so start deciding - - Do you want your curtain rod exposed or hidden by the curtains? If its exposed it should match the rooms style and decor so look around the room to figure that out. (A lot of you dont have to do that; you just know your style. But there are others....) Now consider what kind of curtain or drape youll be hanging. Will it be light and billowy heavy and insulating or something in between? You guessed it: the weight of the coverings will be instrumental in choosing your rod. Maybe you want a layered look so youll be considering double or triple rods.
Double curtain rods are similar to normal curtain rods -- the difference being that they have double rods that enable layered or decorative curtains to be hung easily. Double curtain rods have scrolls on each end to hold two adjustable rods so that it is easy to create a pretty decorative window display. Another nice feature to double curtain rods is that they are designed in such a way that they have no problem fitting any place just like any other curtain rods. Double curtain rods make it possible to give windows and curtains a rich look as they allow double curtains hanging that have a dimensional effect.
