Installing curtain rods is something that most of us will have to do at some point in our life. However, not many of us have the expertise or tools for this task. Today, we’re going to help guide you through the process of putting up a curtain rod and share why using an extended non-drilling rod will help to make your life much easier.
How to Install Curtain Rods
When using an extended non-drilling rod, the great news is that you won’t need any tools to install your curtains. However, before getting started, we always encourage you to choose the curtain style that’s right for your home. We recommend a maximum load of around 30 lbs, but you’ll find there are so many options on offer today, including drapes, panel curtains, eyelet curtains, and café curtains. It’s then time to decide where your curtains should fall in your home. Most individuals want curtains that cover their entire window, and you’ll need them to drop at least four inches below your windowsill to avoid any light from entering your room.
By now, you’ve made all of the decisions you need to in order to put up your curtains, and it’s time to install the curtain rod. Follow these simple instructions below to complete the process using an extended non-drilling rod. Of course, you’ll need to think about adding brackets first if you are using a regular rod for this process.
- Measure the height of your curtain rod
- Mark out where your curtain rod will sit on your window casing
- Use an Allen wrench to loosen the end caps of your curtain rods and add your curtains at this point
- Unscrew your extended non-drilling rod until it’s about 1.5 – 2 inches longer than the area where you are going to place it
- From there, you’ll simply squeeze it into place on your window casing
The Advantages of Using An Extended Non-Drilling Rod
As you can see from the process listed above, you’ll find that installing curtain rods has never been easier, thanks to using an extended non-drilling rod. You’ll no longer have to spend hours worrying about the placement of the brackets and whether you’ve positioned everything correctly. You’ll also notice that no tools were used in the process, which is ideal for anyone who isn’t so confident with DIY projects. Even the most inexperienced homeowners will find it quick and easy to redecorate their home when using an extended non-drilling rod.
One of the most commonly asked questions about this type of rod is, will it stay in place? You’ll be pleased to know that the springs in this type of rod make it completely impossible to fall down, so you won’t have to worry about an incident in your home. They are made with a stainless steel strong rough spring and two robust suction cups, with a strong stretch that allows them to support a load of up to 30 lbs. You’ll be surprised how heavy your curtains can be to be supported by this rod, allowing you to redecorate your home in any manner you desire. Of course, while we have focused so far on curtain installation, you could also use these for shower curtains or as closet rods or window support rods. Wherever you need a rod in your home, you’ll find this option to be suitable.
Another top concern we often hear from homeowners today is the fear of completing various projects and damaging their home. Drilling brackets into the wall is likely to leave permanent holes, which can be annoying to fill in the future. Using an extended non-drilling rod will ensure that your home and surfaces are protected when in use. Regardless of what type of wall you place it on, be that a tiled wall, wallpaper wall, or wooden frame, no damage will be done in the process. No drilling, tools, or screws are required, protecting everything in your home from expensive repairs and damage. The rods are also rustproof, which is something we recommend anyone looks for today. You can use them inside or outside without any worry about what condition they’ll be in within a few months.
While installing curtain rods is something that very few of us enjoy doing, you’ll find that by using an extended non-drilling rod, the process is much quicker and easier. You’ll no longer have to worry about drilling into your walls and causing potential damage to your home. Instead, you’ll find this to be an inexpensive and quick solution, which will offer your home the makeover it needs.
