Installation curtain sticks
First of all, choose whether you want to mount the curtain pole on the window frame or the wall socket. On consideration this is that often frames are made from pine or alternative high-quality forests, and you may not wish to drill to them. Plaster or sheetrock walls are extremely easy to patch if you alter decor afterwards. To ascertain the appropriate positioning hold up the pole to the wall using a long carpenters level over the pole to be certain you’ve got the pole degree. Also mark the positioning of the brackets on the wall or frame with a pencil. When doing so, you may wish the curtains mounted on the pole, if there is any question about how they will look, or their hanging length. Normally the brackets are put three to six inches beyond the edge of this window. Next, drill holes across the pen marks to combine the anchors throughout the bracket, making quite certain you’re using the appropriate bit size. Finally, place the curtain sticks into the brackets. If the pole is somewhat longer, you may need to install a centre bracket to support the pole and the curtains, to avoid sagging. You need to make sure that you use wall attachments which will properly support the weight of the rods and curtains. Most fasteners will define the weight they can safely support. The final step in installing curtain rods is to repair the rods and brackets before dressing the windows with curtains, draperies or valances.
