I’m so excited to share these curtain and drapery hacks with you. I had so much fun putting this blog together and can’t believe how simple these hacks are. Anyone can use these tips and see fantastic results.
1. Make a Cardboard Template
Get perfectly straight curtains, every time. You don’t need a measuring tape or a level! Using two pieces of thin cardboard, create an L shape that you can hold against the doorframe. It’s so easy, you’ll question why anyone ever does it differently.
2. Get a Perfect Pleat Every Time!
If you peek behind this curtain, you’ll find the secret to perfect pleats – a toilet roll tube? That’s right. You can use them as spacers behind your curtains or drapes to create consistent, perfect pleats. Pop one on the rod between every other pleat. If the spacing is too wide, you can even cut them down. What a difference!
3. Hang Curtains Without Drilling Holes in the Wall
There are several ways to hang curtains without damaging walls, but my favorite is command hooks! Not only is this easier, but it’s also especially helpful for renters if they are looking to get their deposit back in full.
4. DIY Curtain Weights
If you’re tired of your curtains blowing around or not hanging straight, you could buy weights to add to the bottom. Another fun trick is gluing a penny to a paperclip that you pace at the bottom of the curtain.
5. Use Curtains on More than Just Windows
Add simple elegance to any room with curtains or sheers! You can create a privacy screen, room divider, closet door or just a frame for your headboard!
So there you have it. I hope you find these curtain and drapery hacks helpful. Do you have any other useful curtain hacks? Please share in the comments below!
