Giuseppina Sal Curtain Rods June 11th, 2018 - 15:18:45
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.
How will your rods be hung - inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame - on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12" longer than your window width. And dont be fooled: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size but they may not be! If youre hanging a curtain rod inside the window frame (typically spring or magnetic rods) measure at the inside point of the window. Again measure each and every window - you dont want any surprises later! Dont get scared off and quit yet - this is all easier than you might be thinking. Youll probably just know what rod is right when you see it.
After all it will probably catch your eye because its your style. So hang in there cause nows the fun part: shopping!

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.
