Always measure your windows before buying a double curtain rod. This involves taking an accurate measurement of the window's width and length. Most probably you will get a kit along with the rods from the home improvement store itself.
This is not an unattainable task if you have the fabric ready at home. Knowing how to sew curtains will help you to easily fix the grommet rings to the curtains and then hang it. You can purchase the kit for making grommet curtains from any upholstery shop. They will provide you the correct size for the rings and the rod, that has to be passed through it. The steps are explained in the following segment. First take the measurement of the curtain rod and the ring so that they complement each other. Buy the kit accordingly, or else you can purchase the materials separately and then assemble them. Decide how many rings you will require for fixing on the drape. The density of the pleats will depend on the spacing of the rings. If you fix the rings at least 1 inch apart from each other, then, the curtain fabric will be overlapped in a compact manner. This makes the curtain look much more voluminous. Before attaching the rings, you have to pierce holes of the same size to that of the ring on the panel of the curtain. Fold the panel and cut it in a circular fashion. Now sew the sides by hemming it. This forms the attachment zone of the grommet rings. If you have purchased a kit, you will get the punching tool for fixing the rings along with it. Read the instructions mentioned on the label and then start the process. The rings are double layered and you can start fixing according to the suggested technique. Punch it tightly so that they do not fall off, and fix it on the wrong side of the curtain. Once the holes are ready, you can easily pass the rods through it. Pleat it well so that the drapes look compact and full. Drape Designs
Bendable type of rods can be bought from stores selling curtain hardware. You can also buy these from online stores in case you do not find them at local hardware stores. Make sure that you take the right measurements before ordering the rod. Also, consider the curtains that you will be hanging from these rods. Regular rods are good for sheers and lightweight cottons curtains. For thick curtains and weighted draperies, opt for rods that can bear heavy load. Look for colored rods and decorative hardware hooks for installing these rods.
