Glenda Valentine Curtain, 2018-01-24 10:50:23. I Disagree, I say you should always start from the middle and work outwards towards the ends. The reason I advise you do it this way is because if you have too many gliders on your track or too many rings on your rod you can easily remove them from the ends of your track or rod. Where if you start from the outside in to the middle the surplus gliders or rings are locked in the middle of your track or rod. Meaning you have to unhang your curtains to remove them. Not much more now and you will have the basics on how to hang curtains. Why do some advise to start from the middle? The reason is on some tracks and rods, but mostly the corded kind. They have what are called overlap arms. These are short arms made of metal or platic with holes in for the last couple of curtain hooks on each leading edge of your pair of curtains (edges that meet at center of your window).

An extra pair of hands When you are learning how to hang curtains large or heavy it is very useful to have someone standing at ground level holding the curtain taking the weight. This enables you to hang the curtain onto your track or rod with ease. How many hooks will you need? Well for curtains with standard pencil pleat tape you will need a hook every 4th pocket. For bucram headed curtains you will need 1 for every pleat or goblet and one for each end. Preparing your bucram headed curtains prior to hanging. The good news other than putting in the pin hooks setting them down 1/2 inch from the top of your curtain. there is no more prepping to do.
Faith Yates Curtain, 2018-01-16 14:35:46. How to hang curtains from a rod or pole If hanging under a rod or pole put your curtain hooks in the top pocket. Also note the number of rings on your rod or pole. This determines the number of hooks you put in the curtain tape. As a rule of thumb you use less hooks on a rod or pole than on a curtain track. On a track put a hook ever 4th pocket and on a ror or pole every 6 to 8 pockets. Hanging from a track? If hanging from a curtain track then put your curtain hooks in the center or bottom pocket pocket. this allows the curtain to cover the track when closed. To decide which pocket to use try one and see what your curtain looks like hanging. If your happy then great do the other curtain. If not happy move the curtain hooks up or down to suit. The 1st step when hanging A lot of people say you should always start hanging your curtains from the ends of the track or rod and work towards the middle.

Beater Brush Height Adjustment Most modern vacuums include a feature that lets you adjust the height of the beater brush, which is the brush that spins around on the bottom of the vacuum. An area rug tends to be a lot more fragile than everyday carpeting; therefore, its essential to adjust the height of your vacuum cleaners beater brush so that it doesnt give your rug a literal beating.

You can leave up to a foot right in front of the furniture because most people dont place their feet right up against the front of the couch or chair.
