How to hang curtains? A step-by-step guide to a perfect installation.


Why hanging curtains is important for the atmosphere and functionality of your space?

Curtains are not only a stylish addition to your interior, they also offer functionality such as privacy and light regulation. A carefully hung curtain can drastically change the aesthetic and atmosphere of a room.

Step 1: Choosing the right curtain fabric and length.

The fabric of the curtain can affect the atmosphere of the room. Transparent curtains let in more light, while blackout curtains provide more privacy and light blocking. Make sure that the length of your curtains matches the style you want to radiate: from floor to ceiling for a luxurious look, or just above the floor for a casual look.

Step 2: Measuring the window width and height.

Before hanging your curtains, it is essential to take the correct measurements of your window. Measure the width of the window for the width of the curtain rails and the height to determine how long the curtains should be.

Step 3: Choosing the right hanging system for your curtains.

Various hanging systems are available. The traditional curtain rod has a classic look, while rail systems often look more modern. Choose the system that best suits the style of your room and the function of your curtains.

Step 4: Mounting the curtain rail or rod to the ceiling or wall.

Follow the installation instructions of the chosen hanging system carefully. Make sure you have the right tools on hand, such as a drill, screws and a spirit level, to securely attach the rails or rod.

Step 5: Hanging the curtains on the rail or rod.

Once the hanging system is installed, you can hang the curtains. Use runners or curtain hooks, depending on your system. If you use a pleat band, make sure the pleats are evenly spaced.

Step 6: Adjusting and optimizing the curtains for a perfect hanging shape.

Once hung, it's time to adjust your curtains. Make sure the folds are even and check the length. If they are too long, consider having them shortened for a perfect hanging shape.

The ultimate guide: How to wash and maintain curtains for a fresh look?

Some tips for maintaining your curtains so they stay clean and beautiful



My name is Monia and I am a lover of aesthetics and interior beauty. I specialize in writing texts that capture the essence of modern decoration.

For me, interior decorations are not just objects: they are stories that come to life in every room. Wall murals, window decorations such as stylish curtains or practical roller blinds, as well as unique wall decorations (acrylic prints, canvas prints, aluminum prints) – each of these elements has a story waiting to be told.

What makes my work so special? The collaboration with a great designer Daria with whom I form a complementary duo. Her visions and decoration ideas, combined with my ability to capture their beauty in words, create a unique effect. Together we inspire existing and new customers, giving them a fresh look at decorations.

I am proud to be part of and to contribute to creating unforgettable spaces for our customers. I invite you to keep up to date with our latest creations and be inspired by what we create together!

Kind regards,
