Your Home Decore:
Installing curtain rods
sometimes when new homeowners start doing their Home Decor and redo their new homes they just bought, they aren’t happy with many of the things that are existing in the home such as curtain rods or curtain tracks. Window decoration is important for those who want to decorate around windows and walls. Sometimes the existing hardware to hang curtains is either old and out of date or possibly even loose from over the years of use or even possibly they are being moved so many times now that there is no secure place to attach supports.
Curtain rods and curtain rail’s are generally installed above the window on the wall. Usually there is a bracket that goes on either end of the rod or rail that would support the curtain. Curtain rods or rails are adjustable, they slide in and out of each other to make up for different window widths.
When Mississauga handyman places the supports/brackets for the rods should be done first by marking the positions of the brackets. You can use the window casing as your reference point for measuring the height of the bracket. If you are planning to extend your curtains farther than the window you can extend the line out from the top of the window on both sides to give you a reference point as to how high the brackets will be installed.
Now that you have a straight line coming out from both sides of the window you have a reference point vertically now if you want to place your brackets a certain distance out from the window measure on both sides is the amount and mark that line with a point. This point now is your reference point for your curtain bracket. You can either use this point for a hole or lining up with some other feature.
Attaching Hardware for yur home decore accessories
There is a large variety of ways to secure things to drywall. The most common way is to use anchors or plugs http://www.naturalhandyman.com/iip/inffastener/infanchor/infanchor.html I’m sure you have seen these things before, they are little colored plastic tubular shaped items with some type of serrations on them for grip in the drywall. These come in all different sizes from very small ones for lightweight light-duty applications all the way through to holding up pictures and mirrors.
The wall anchor plugs
should come with the screws . The larger the wall plug there longer and bigger the screw is. When inserting these wall plugs into the drywall make sure that you are not drilling into wood or some type of steel stud because this will not work make sure that you are drilling into straight drywall. If your drywall is on top of concrete walls and make sure that you have a concrete drill bit to drill deep enough into the hole for it to allow the wall plug to completely insert. I usually check the depth of the hole by checking how deep the drill goes. Mark and drillbit for the length of the wall plug and then we are drilling you’ll see how deep you can go with the drill bit. Make sure that you are using a concrete drill bit if you’re dealing with the concrete also we usually use and recommend using a hammer drill it will drill into the concrete much faster than the regular drill would.
Now that you are able to install new drapery rods to freshen up your home decore you can hang any curtains or shears without any problems of them falling off.
