How to Assemble the Rod

Once you have all the necessary supplies, you can get to the assembling of the curtain rod. Since all our curtain rods can be easily extended or collapsed to fit a particular window width, the first thing you should do is to decide on the desired curtain rod size. Luckily, it is a cinch – the width of your window added to the right and the left extensions make the size of your curtain rod where an extension is the desired distance between the window frame and the finial. The extension depends on the size of your curtains, and how you want your window to look – the bigger extension you choose, the bigger your window will look. For instance, for the thicker drapes, like blackout ones, it’s highly recommended to go for the bigger extension – otherwise, your window will seem to be smaller. At the same time, translucent window treatments require the smaller extension.

After you choose the desired width of your curtain rod, you can move on to putting it together. At this point, please bear in mind that all our curtain rod sets come with 3 poles, which range in diameter – two of them are the same size while the third one (you’ll find it inside one of the bigger poles) is a little bit smaller in diameter. That said, to get a <81-inch curtain rod, you’ll need only two poles – the small one and the big one. To assemble a >81-inch rod, please take the following steps:

  • Remove the finial from the smaller pole;
  • Put it on the larger pole;
  • Then, insert the smaller role into the larger ones to put together the three poles with the smaller one in the middle.

Once the rod (it doesn’t matter whether it’s <81- or >81-inch long) is ready, there are a few simple steps left to do:

  • Extend the rod to the desired size;
  • Remove the finials, shirr a curtain onto it, and put the finials on to keep the drapery in place;
  • Rotate the finials to secure them.

How to Mount the Brackets

Before you move on to the mounting of the brackets (hangers), it’s highly advisable to decide on how high you want them to be. Though it depends on the length of your curtains, you should also bear in mind that the farther from the upper window frame the hangers will be, the bigger your room and your curtains will look. Notably, it’s quite common to have curtain rod brackets halfway between the ceiling and the upper part of the window frame. Keep in mind that for a <81-inch rod you’ll need to mount three brackets while a <81-inch rod will require only two.

To secure the brackets in place, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Since all standard curtain rod hangers have two holes, the upper and the lower one, use a pencil to mark the top holes;
  • Press the top hole of the bracket against the top marked point and mark the point for the lower one; do the same with the rest of the brackets;
  • Once you are done with the marked points, make sure that they are levelled;
  • Then, drill the points. Be careful at this point – a hollow wall will require 3/16-inch holes. However, if you hit a stud while drilling, make 1/8-inch holes;
