First of all, how long do you want your eyelet curtains to be? You might want them to hang on the floor, or if you have low ceilings, you might want the curtains to hang just below the window. You should decide on this before you buy. Another option for making the curtains have a fuller width is to buy made-to-measure curtains. This way, you can choose how full the width of your curtains is. Made-to-measure curtains can be expensive, but they will hang the best because of their custom fit. Deciding on the Fabric You may choose to buy other types of curtains, such as pencil pleats. Pencil pleat curtains are usually attached to a rail affixed above the window. At this stage, you should take time to make sure your gathers are nice and even. It may take a little time, but it will be worth it! The outer clip produces a wider fold with 2.25 times fabric fullness required whilst the inner clip offers a slightly narrower pleat requiring fabric fullness of 2.

Hanging curtains on a pole can be simple if both sides of the curtains are threaded in the same way. Begin by ensuring that you thread the curtain fabric, to begin with the middle section of the curtain. This is the part of the curtain you want to be in the middle of your window. Thread this outermost eyelet onto the curtain pole, ensuring that the lining is facing the window.

How to Hang Pencil Pleat Curtains

Measuring your window is an important step. If you buy a random set of eyelet curtains, they may not drape correctly. Measure your windows with a tape measure or a ruler. Write the numbers down so that they are on hand for you to compare when shopping. You want to buy curtains that are bigger than the window; otherwise, when you close them, they will not cover the entire window. Extra Tip

Some people choose to double up on the fabric because they want their curtains to look fuller. You could buy two sets (four individual curtain panels) and sew two of each curtain panel together. Sew on the outside edge so that the curtain panels are double the width. Thread the curtain panel the same as the previous one – starting with the outermost eyelet. Alternative Method Start by tying the cords before you gather, if you don’t do this first, your heading tape may unravel when you start gathering. You will need to tie the cords at one end of the heading tape, most people like to tie it off at the leading edge where it will meet the other curtain in the middle of your window. Leave the cords at the other end untied, you will need these to gather the curtain later. However, we believe that eyelet curtains are more efficient and easier to install than pleated curtains. Eyelet curtains are a simple slide-on process, whereas pencil pleat curtains need curtain hooks to be attached every few centimetres and can be fiddly to attach. The End: How to Hang Curtains With Eyelet RingsOnce you are happy with the width and gather of your curtain, you can tie off the cords. Please refrain from cutting the cords as you may want to loosen the curtain in the future when cleaning or if you decide to hang them at a different window. Also, the size of your window may affect your choice; calculating your window dimensions is the next step. The Window

Also, remember to calculate the length of your windows before you buy a rod. Curtain rods are available in set lengths or find extendable ones. It is important to find the right size because this will affect the curtain you need to cover the window. Pleated Curtains?

How to Hang Pinch Pleat Curtains

When buying this tape, please allow one extra eyelet’s worth to ensure the correct stating position of the tape. The first eyelet for the leading edge of the curtain is cut between the two plastic spacing clips. The outer edge should match the leading edge. There should be an even number of rings across each curtain. To ensure that the folds are even, you could implement spacers. These are plastic clips – or some people even use toilet rolls! – to even out the folds. You weave them between the eyelet rings, but to ensure they are not visible, you need to place them on every other curtain panel. Choosing the Curtain Rod Think About Weight
