Hanging Loop curtains requires a few basic tools:
- A drill
- Metal curtain rod and top brackets
- Wall anchors
- Curtain rail liners and pelmet boards (if needed) Screws
- Drill bits for drilling the holes in the wall, metal rod, and pelmet board (if needed)
- Cordless drill with a Phillips bit.
Hanging loop curtains is a great way to add extra privacy to a room and get more light in.
– Decide which side of the window you want your curtain loops on. This is typically the white area on a double-hung window.
– Make sure your curtain rod will fit snugly up against the window frame. It should be at least an inch away from the wall and extend down to the floor or top of the sill depending on what style of curtains you are using.
– Screws can be tricky for this type of project, so if you have a drill handy, use it! Otherwise, kitchen tongs make for great makeshift tools when hammering in screws by hand.
Use hooks with screw eyes or brackets with screws attached if you’re having trouble getting them in place!
– Tie your curtain loops onto the screw eyes or brackets on each side of your desired location. You should be able to fit
How to Clean Loop Curtains
Loop curtains are a type of window curtain that has been widely used in many homes due to their durability, affordability, and style. When it gets dirty or old, it might be time to get rid of them. Either way, loop curtains will not be the same as they once were if they are not cleaned periodically. But with the right steps and patience, you can clean loop curtains easily.
Below are the steps on how to clean loop curtains:
– Start by taking all the loops off one side of the curtain
– Mix water and detergent in a bucket or sink until sudsy
– Use a sponge or dish brush to scrub loops inside out for about 5 minutes until they are clean
The Different Types of Loop Curtains
There are two types of loop curtains with different avatars.
The first type is the traditional loop curtain which consists of a closed-loop rod or a pair of rods. This type works best if you are looking for something that does not require much effort to open or close as it functions by winding the rod around itself and making contact with a hook to open and close.
One of the disadvantages of this type is that it alters the aesthetic appeal of your patio door as it remains in contact with the door from top to bottom, on both sides and all along its length, when opened. It also does not allow for visibility when closed, obscuring your view outside. The second type offers an alternative to those who do not want their patio doors obscured by curtains – they have been designed to clear your patio doors from top-to-bottom when fully opened.
The second type is one that was designed specifically for French doors, which means this design will not work in other areas.
