Before tending to the curtains, I hung the rod. In order to make my ceilings appear taller, and the windows to appear wider\u2026I set the rod quite a few inches outside of the window. I went 4 inches from the ceiling, and 8 inches outside of the door frame. I\u2019ve read that 2-4 inches down from the ceiling is a good rule of thumb. As for the width\u2026you can go anywhere from 6-10 inches outside the window frame. It all depends on your room, but just remember higher & wider is best! Curtain rod Manufacturers gives you these suggestions.With the rod up, it was time to get to work on the curtains.Rookie Tip: As you hang the rod, make sure you wash both your liners and your curtains in the wash. They will all shrink quite a bit. You can then iron them all, which is a huge pain\u2026but is a must if you want to get them looking good. This step took a lot of time but was worth it in the end.These hooks are crucial for the no sew curtainsThese are the little clips that come in the package with the blackout liner. You\u2019ll use these to hook the liner directly to your curtains.Detail- curtains and hookThey didn\u2019t exactly come with the best directions (ohhhh Ikea\u2026), so here is a closer look at how I hooked mine. Hooks, to hang the curtains from the rodThen I took my curtain rod ring and clipped it directly to the liner & curtain, and strung all 4 up on my curtain rod.With the curtains & liners hanging from the rod, I was able to get an accurate measurement for hemming. In fact, I went ahead and cut off the excess right there on the ground.First I did the liner. First, trim the linerThe scrap materialsThen I moved onto the curtain. Then, carefully pin and measure the curtainNow I\u2019m no seamstress, but I do know how to measure for a hem. You\u2019ll just need sewing needles and insert them straight across the entire width of the curtain where it meets the floor. Measuring the bottom of the curtainsI wanted my hem to be 3 inches, so I measured 3 inches out from my needles and marked the curtain all the way across. Carefully trim off excess fabricThen, it was cutting time!Now, this next step may sound legit crazy to you, but I\u2019m just sharing the way I did these curtains as a can\u2019t-even-sew-on-a-button kinda gal. Attaching the liner to the curtain, and hemming the bottom is probably a super simple sewing job. But instead, I decided to use hemming tape. It took a bit of time & patience, but I didn\u2019t have to struggle through the potentially painful project of pricking myself with a needle as I tried to sew this all together.I grabbed some hemming tape from Ikea (it\u2019s right there in the curtain section), and my hair straightener. Yes. I said hair straightener.Yes, I used my hair straightenerSure this baby tames the frizz, but it also came in handy for this project. Keeping my curtains hung on the rod, I went ahead and used hemming tape to keep the liner & the curtain together on the edges. Doing this with the curtains hung made it really easy, as I could line everything up perfectly with the help of gravity. Don't laugh, it worked perfectlyThen with the hemming tape sandwiched in between the liner and the curtain, I ran over it a few times with my straightener. The heat instantly bonded the fabrics, and I worked my way down all the sides of all 4 curtains. Yes. Time-consuming. But I put Netflix on and just got to work with this mindless task.With the sides stitched up, I took the curtains off their clips and brought them down to do the bottom hem. This time I used a real iron.After the side seems were secure, I removed the curtains to iron them fullyOnce the hems were all done, I hung up my curtains and admired my handiwork.We are one of the International curtain rod supplier, welcome to your come and purchase!
