Types Of Curtain Hooks: List Of Some Of The Best Curtain Hook Types

List Of Some Of The Best Curtain Hook Types

Curtains use the number of different types of hooks, which totally depends on the curtain as well as the rod types. For instance, the pin hooks, that are often used for hanging the pinch pleated drapes but not for the standard type of rod. Knowing the design as well as the purpose of each type of hook will help to make sure that the user gets the right hook to hang the curtains. Below is the list of the commonly used curtain hooks:

1. Pin-On Hooks

The pin-on hooks, also known by the name of drapery pins, are the kinds of hooks that have a pin pointing up vertically to the top of the hook. They are used to hang the pinch-pleated draperies with a traverse rod or from the tabbed rings on the decorative round rod. This type of hook is a piece of the folded metal wire. One of its sides has a sharp prong or the pin, and the other side with a curved hook. They look like the large fishing hooks and can have up to 4 prongs. All the pin hooks process in the same way. The prong side is inserted exactly in the curtain header back at the base of the seam. The side that is hooked is inserted in the eyes of the pole rings, which will glide running all along the track, or in the holes of a stationary rod strip. 2-pronged hooks are typically used with the curtains which have the pleating tape that is affixed right to the top. There are several types of pin-on hooks like:

  • The round pin-on hooks, which consists of a rounded top, slides on a cafe rod, which in turn allows the pinch-pleated curtains to get used without normal traverse or rod as well as the rings hardware.
  • The other type is the top pin-on hook which has a top that will narrow in an inverted “V” shape. The point will settle in the tab hole exactly on a traverse rod or on the sliding rings. It is the most common hook for hanging the pinch-pleat curtains.

2. Pleater Hooks

These types of hooks, also known as the slip-on or prong hooks, work best with the pleater tape that is sewed into the heading of the panel of the curtain. This tape has the narrow and the vertical pockets that open exactly at the bottom edge of the tape. When the user will insert the prongs in the pockets at the regular intervals, they create the pleats right in the front of the curtain which looks very attractive. The user can hang the curtains from the tracks or from ring tabs in a similar way as the pin-on hooks. Pleater hooks are also available with the two, three, or even four prongs so to create single, double, or even the triple pleats according to the choice.

3. Sew-On Hooks

Sew-on hooks are similar to the pin hooks which means they have a hooked side, but instead of the prongs which insert in the fabric tape, they have a prong with the rounded eye right on one side at the end. This is sewn on the back of the curtain header in a way so that the hook remains at the fixed position. The hooked side will be then inserted on the pole rings, glides, or on the holes of a rod that is stationary. These kinds of hooks are typically made from the brass, and once they are sewn in, then they are strong enough to hold up the most of the fabrics.

4. S-hooks

The S-hooks look the same as it sounds, like an S. They are usually made of metal but can also be made from plastic or wood. They are mostly used with the shower curtains but also work well with the curtain that has a buttonhole exactly at the top. One of the ends of the hook is inserted at the buttonhole and the other end over the curtain rod. These kinds of hooks are often designed for decorative purposes & this is because the hook is exposed above the curtain.

Types of Curtains | What Are The Different Curtain Heading Types?

Curtains are so important when it comes to finishing off a room’s interiors. They often are the difference between a room just being a room, to making it a welcoming space to be in. There are many different types of curtains available. From pinch pleats, pencil pleats, and eyelets being just a few popular choices. Curtains can be chosen to enhance a room feel or for a specific purpose depending on what the room is going to be used for. In the video below, our Soft Furnishings Specialist Ebony goes into detail about the different types of curtain headings!

Different types of curtains explained!

Popular types of curtains

Pencil Pleat

Pencil pleat is the most popular type of curtain heading and often the most cost-effective. They are widely used in all sectors and homes. Pencil pleat headings are normally three rows of string threaded through it for three hook positions. The hooks which can be metal or plastic can be put in 1 of 3 pockets depending whether you want the curtains to be underslung or to cover the track. Pencil pleat heading suits all types of pole or track and is often the most common type of heading used when hanging curtains under a pelmet.

Pinch Pleat

Pinch pleat headings work on all types of poles and tracks. However, because pinch pleat is a bespoke decorative heading, it is a lot more gathered than other curtain headings.
One of the main benefits of the pinch pleat heading is that it looks great and they stack back neatly as the space folds in the middle.

Eyelets

Eyelet curtains are only suitable for poles so they do not work for tracks! They are called eyelet because of the large metal rings punched through the top of the curtain instead of normal header tape. The rings can be matched to the pole to provide a consistent look.
Eyelet curtains are great for use in the care home or student accommodation sector, as they hang very straight and maximise light in the room as well as being strong and robust. Not quite as much material is needed when using eyelets as would be needed within a curtain with a taped heading. As they are not gathered in the same way, this means they are economical to produce.

Wave Heading

This type of heading was designed for use with Silent Gliss tracks. However, there are now other variations of it out there, using similar names. A wave heading works in a similar way to a pencil pleat but is not drawn up using cords. It uses a glider cord instead which ensures a consistent wave effect is maintained whether curtains are open or closed.
The wave heading is mainly used in areas that mean it will not get high wear such as hotels or more leisure orientated accommodation. It’s suited well to this sector as it maintains a smart straight look and hangs well whether it is lined or unlined, perfect for a formal feel like a hotel.

Anti- Ligature Curtains

Anti Ligature curtains can be made in many ways, mainly depending on the risks that could arise at specific sites. Curtains with sewn down headings, where the strings are removed. Heading with no tapes and fixed lining options with no gaps are all things that are available to customers here from our soft furnishing specialists. These specialists work with challenging environments regularly and are on hand to help our customers decide what would be best for their environment. It’s important to us here at Bridge to combine the best functions of safety that can be achieved without compromising on the look and feel of the curtain.

Types of Curtain Rods & Hardware – Umbra

From modern curtain rods to brass curtain rods, there are a variety of curtain rod types and styles on the market. For many, curtain rods and the accessories that go with it can become confusing. Read below to learn more about some of the types of curtain rods from Umbra and hardware types like clip rings, brackets and more.


TYPES OF CURTAIN RODS

Single Curtain Rods

 

 

One of the most popular types of curtain rods, single curtain rods feature one mounted bar that rests at the top of your window frame threaded through curtain rings, grommets or pockets of your drapers in order to stay in place. Most single curtain rods can support light to medium weight curtains, sheers and more. Umbra’s curtain rods come with everything you need to easily install your rod including finials, brackets, screws, drywall anchors and easy-to-follow instructions.


Double Curtain Rods

 

 

Although very similar in design to single curtain rods, a double curtain rod allows you to layer more than one drapery panel or curtain for a more enhanced and dramatic look. Most typically, people layer a sheer curtain first and then a regular curtain on top to block out light. Double curtain rods come as a set of two rods with the back rod being slightly shorter in length than the first.


Tension Curtain Rods

 

 

An extendable curtain rod that requires zero tools or drilling, tension curtain rods are the perfect solution to condos or places where you cannot drill any holes. Extremely easy to install, they leave no damage and can be adjusted to fit your desired space. A completely unique tension curtain rod system, Umbra Anywhere Curtain Rod and Room Divider is a complete solution to any hard-to-install area. Whether you want privacy or need to divide up space, it extends in both width and height in order to best suit multiple spaces. These tension rods can accommodate light to medium weight curtains, sheers or lightweight panels.


CURTAIN RINGS

 

 

Easy alternatives to traditional standard curtain hooks, curtain rod clip rings are a popular choice to quickly hang light to medium weight panels, drapes, curtains or sheers. Simply slide rings over your curtain rod and clip the ring to the top of your drapery panel. Accommodating rods that are 1inch in diameter or less, these Umbra Clip Curtain Rings come in a pack of 7, and have clips attached to ensure an easy installation or takedown. These Clip Curtain Rings also come in a small size, which comes in a pack of 10 and works with curtain rod diameters that are 5/8 inches or less.


CURTAIN HOLDBACKS

 

 

No assembly required, these curtain tiebacks connect magnetically making them quick and easy to use. Curtain holdbacks are used to hold your curtains in place, tying them back to bring light into a room. Halo Curtain Holdbacks from Umbra can create versatile configurations to suit your needs. Each ring has a diameter of 4 inches and they are sold in a pack of two. Halo comes in a polished silver finish in order to match your curtain rod and hardware. Holdbacks are typically placed a third of the way up from the bottom of a curtain. Measure your curtain first to ensure you have the right estimates.


CEILING MOUNTING BRACKETS

 

Umbra has both wall or ceiling mounting curtain rod brackets to suit your desired space. Make your ceilings appear taller by using ceiling-mounted brackets, drawing your eyes upward while saving space. These ceiling mounting brackets can hold up to 20 pounds or curtain rods with a 1-inch diameter and can also be mounted to the wall if desired. Umbra’s adjustable wall brackets are suitable for curtain rods up to 5/8 inch in diameter and have a maximum weight capacity of 20lbs; making them ideal for most curtains or drapes. If you have tall ceilings and your curtains are shorter in length, wall brackets will be the easier pick for you. In comparison, ceiling mounted brackets create a more seamless and flowing appearance as curtains will flow from ceiling to floor.

How to hang curtains with hooks • Grand Little Place

Off the rack curtains often fit the budget, but not the quality or look that many of us are wanting.  When you learn these simple tweaks for how to hang curtains with hooks your curtains will instantly look better.  Paired with the addition of drapery weights curtains will hang straighter too!

 

Y’all have been with me during my very-first-world-problem of my living room curtains.  But even after finally dismantling and replacing the curtain rods one thing was missing – the curtains.  When we bought the house we inherited professional drapery (and alllllllll the hardware that came with it).  Because I’m impatient and couldn’t stand looking at the mess of drapes I ruined a pair of them by washing them.  Yes, I know I’m an idiot. That left us with two pairs of drapes that matched on the side windows and a bare rod over the patio window.   I was trying to figure out what to do when I found a near-ish match of the drapes at a thrift store one day.  They weren’t exact but I went ahead and got them so that at least I had something there while I figured out the rod and curtain situation.  Over time we realized that someday we do want professional drapes put back into the living room.  There is one thing stopping us though – budget.  Real drapes cost real money, yo.  And while I can say that I know it is a skill and you get what you pay for, right now that dream can’t be a priority.  I’ve got waaaaaaay to many things that have to get done before I drop the money on drapes.  So I’ve been left with a choice – keep living with the mish-mash of drapery that we currently have or to find inexpensive off the rack curtain panels that will work for now.  This post is all about how I used off the rack curtain panels to make them feel more like drapes.

In my living room I needed 84″ panels.  I know that this is unusual these days for a blogger to seek out the shorter length but because of the ceiling beams in my living room I couldn’t have gone any longer than that.   I looked at curtains in every price point but at the end of the day decided that I wanted to spend as little as possible because these aren’t my forever curtains and I really DO have some bigger projects coming up that I want to spend my money on.  Armed with a gift card I hit up all of my local Home Goods, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx stores but couldn’t find panels I liked enough that had enough of the panels I needed.  For my living room I needed a minimum of 8 panels.  There is a Tuesday Morning near my house so I popped in to see what they had.  They actually have a large curtain section that has a variety of colors and lengths.  I ended up finding 8 panels in a plain off white fabric.  What is nice about stores like Tuesday Morning & Home Goods is that they sell curtains in sets of 2.  That was a big help when trying to spend as little as possible on this in between update.

Before moving into this house I never really paid attention to what the difference between drapery and curtains are.   Now that I’ve been battling drapery for 3 years I am well versed.  I am not a drapery professional so I’m just here to share what I’ve figured out along the way.  The biggest difference between drapes and curtains is quality.  Drapes are usually hand made, not always, by a seamstress or other sewing professional.  Drapes are usually lined, weighted and always have a a buckram header.  Buckram is a stiff starched material that is sewn into the header part of the drapes and can be manipulated into different styles of pleats and headings.  Curtains do not have this and therefore are generally more casual.  Drapes are also usually hung with drapery hooks (also called drapery pins), whereas curtains are made to hang directly on the rod with a rod pocket, back tab, grommet or other hanging method.

Now that we’ve covered the differences between drapes and curtains let’s talk about what all of us middle-class-regular-house people can do to get the best results from our off the shelf curtain panels.   You basically need 3 supplies:  curtain rings (preferably with an eyelet), drapery hooks, and drapery weights.

Most of us are familiar with what a curtain ring is.  It is a ring that slides onto the curtain rod and many times has a little clip hanging off of the bottom of it so you can clip your curtain panel to it.  I’ve used a lot of rings with clips over the years but for my living room I knew that wasn’t an option.  Those curtain rings are totally fine, but coming from the previously discussed drapery situation I knew I needed something cleaner looking than how the clip looks.  I also have been learning how to use drapery hooks, and they don’t work with the rings with clips.

You may be reading this and thinking, “Ok, but what is a drapery hook?”.  It’s ok, I didn’t know either until I inherited a mountain of them with this house.  A drapery hook is a little piece of metal that can be hooked through a curtain ring with eyelet and pinned directly into the buckram heading of a drape.   One end points up and has a sharp point – that is the side that gets put into the curtain header.  The side that is blunt and points down goes through the curtain ring.

So knowing how and why drapery hooks are used I decided I would attempt to figure out how to hang curtain panels with hooks.  I wanted to try this method because even though back tabs do hang nicely on the bar the length wouldn’t have been right.  I needed the extra length of the ring for the curtains to be the right distance from the floor.  I also wanted to see if using the the drapery hooks would give the header a higher end look than just hanging them.

I laid out my curtain panels and got to work inserting the drapery hooks.  I chose to use a drapery hooks everywhere there was a back tab.  As you can see these off the shelf panels do not have a buckram header and are a bit of a floppy fabric.  I figured that the spacing of the back tabs would be even and that the extra fabric would give the hooks more  stability.

After all of the hooks were in place I went ahead and threaded the hooks through the eyelet of my curtain rings.  The curtain rings I am using on my bars are from Ikea and are a little different than standard rings.  These are wood with a little piece you can add on that the hooks goes into.  I’ve not seen other rings like this, and these I believe are being discontinued, so you should probably look for the normal wood curtain rings with eyelet screwed in it.

Once your hooks are in the header and added to the rings your top should look like this:

The other thing that will help off the rack curtains is adding drapery weights to the hem.  If you’ve ever looked at your curtain and saw them ‘winging’ to the sides it’s because they are so light weight.  By adding a drapery weight they will naturally lay straighter and you’ll avoid the odd curtain wisps to the sides.  Now remember I’m not a professional and I’m just a gal fluffing her house.   I’m also not a perfectionist about everything, so I’m going to tell you how I did this and you can make the choice about what’s right for you. 🙂

Adding drapery weights is super simple.  You will need a seam ripper or something to open just a few stitches.  Run your hand to the edge of the bottom hem and using the seam ripper open up about a 1 inch section of the hem.

Insert your drapery weight.  Repeat this on the other side of the curtain panel (each panel should have 2 weights, one on each bottom corner).

If you are into sewing then bust out your needle and thread and stitch up the hem where you opened it.  I have two kids and very little time or patience to sit and stitch teeny openings on 8 curtain panels so if you’re Klassy like me dig out your stapler and throw a staple there.  Or if you don’t care at all then leave it open.  Either way your hooks and weights are done and your curtains are ready!

Once your weights are in the bottom hem this is how your curtains will fall:

If ya’ll have stuck with me through this post you deserve an award.   The before and after here isn’t amazing, from far away you probably can’t even see a difference.  BUT when I’m in the room opening and closing my curtains it’s different and it doesn’t drive me insane every time I’m sitting in here….so I think that’s a win?

Drapes before:

Off the rack curtain panels hung with hooks, rings and weights after:

How to hang curtain panels with hooks to hang like drapery:

  • Gather supplies:  curtain panels, curtain rings with eyelet, drapery hooks, seam ripper, drapery weights
  • Using your drapery hooks insert a hook into the heading of your curtain panel at regular intervals (everywhere you want to use a ring, normally panels use 7-9 rings).
  • Thread drapery hooks through the eyelet of the curtain ring
  • Hang panels
  • Using your seam ripper open the top edge of the bottom hem about 1 inch on each end of the curtain panel.
  • Drop in 1 drapery weight into each end of the curtain panel
  • Sew close hem.   Or if you’re lazy like me leave it open  For even more “I don’t have time for this” points use your stapler to staple it up.  No one is going to notice and if they do it sounds like they have enough time to come over and stitch them up for you 😉

My curtains have been hung with hooks and rings for the past 5 months and they still hang as straight as the day I put them up.  I’m so happy I went ahead and made the swap with these inexpensive curtain panels!

5 Common Types of Shower Curtain Hooks

You can obtain many shapes and styles of shower curtain hooks. While your primary concern may be getting the right color, size, and number, you should consider a few other things before you buy. Shower curtains come with 12 holes, but not all shower rings will. Make sure you get 12 rings in your set. If you buy a ringless or hookless shower curtain, you won’t need rings. Your shower curtain will attach to the shower rod with Velcro strips, or by sliding the rod itself through the grommets on the shower curtain.

Shower Rings or Shower Hooks?

Some people refer to shower curtain rings as hooks. This is actually a name for a style of shower curtain holder. Rings generally encircle the shower rod, while hooks literally hook over the rod. Hooks often have a decorative button or surface, usually sculptural, on the end of the hook that exits the shower grommet or hole and faces outside the shower curtain.

Rings are less decorative, simply holding the curtain to the rod. Some shower treatments use rings to hold a liner to a rod, and hooks to hold the outer curtain. Only the hooks are seen and are usually decorative, and often match or compliment the curtain. For instance, sea shells on the shower hook may accent a seaside-themed shower curtain.

You don’t need designer rings or hooks, but half the fun of creating a shower treatment is getting something that looks at least as good as it works. Rings and hooks both have one basic purpose, to hold the shower curtain or liner on the rod. They also allow the user to slide the curtain back for safe and easy exit or entrance into the shower. Rings that grab, jam, or stick result in torn curtains or even falls.

If your budget will bear the cost, look for roller rings or glides. These metal rings have roller balls on the ring that allow the rings to move easily on any shower rod. Usually made of stainless steel, they are a more expensive alternative, but they won’t rust.

Types of Popular Shower Curtain Rings and Hooks

Power glides are teardrop-shaped metal rings with attached ball bearings or rollers that allow the rings to move smoothly over any shower rod. Plastic shower curtain hooks are generally inexpensive. Hooks may take the shape of a question mark or “S.” Wire rings snap or fasten on themselves. They are also inexpensive but may rust sooner. Snap-on plastic rings encircle the shower rod and snap closed on themselves. They open with a twist or snap. Shower curtain hooks contain a design on one end of the hook which exits the shower curtain hole on the outside of the curtain.

20 Unexpected & Creative Uses For Shower Curtain Rings 

 

Is it time to replace your shower curtain? Before you do, there’s something you need to salvage – the curtain hooks or rings!

These simple, functional, everyday items are surprisingly wonderful for lots of upcycling projects, both big and small.

Today we’re sharing some of the best uses for shower curtain rings, including beautiful crafts and useful home organisation. 

They come in all shapes and sizes!

TOP TIP: Before attempting any of these DIYs, we’d recommend soaking the shower rings in a disinfectant. This will kill any bacteria left from the damp bathroom conditions. 

Household organisation

1. Organise scarves, hats & belts in your wardrobe

Streamline your storage.

Where exactly are you meant to store your hats, scarves, and belts? If you’ve got some extra hanging space in your wardrobe, attach some shower curtain rings or hooks to a hanger and use to hang all sorts of accessories. 

You can even use this trick in entryway cupboards. Simply place the shower curtain hook straight onto the cupboard rail and use to store bags, skateboards and anything else that won’t go on a hanger! 

2. Make your shower storage more efficient 

This is a game changer! 

Shower curtain hooks with clips are perfect for hanging shower essentials. Just look at how Amanda from Home Talk did it! Get a tension rod (the same kind you’d use to hang an ordinary shower curtain), add shower curtain rings with clips and install it along the back wall of your bath or shower.  

Clip any flat-ended, squeezy tube bottles to the curtain rings to keep things off the floor and sides. You won’t even need to remove the bottles with each use – just squeeze some product out and wash away! 

TOP TIP: Decant shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel into compatible, squeezy bottles so that they can be clipped up. 

3. Kitchen uses for shower curtain hooks 

Spruce up your kitchen.

Keep your surfaces clear and make use of all that vertical space! This trick also works wonderfully for mug storage. 

4. Save your hair ties

Keep a bundle in your bag. 

Fed up of losing all your hair ties to the monster under the bed? Deanna from Shady Tree Diary has a brilliant idea! We wonder how we didn’t think of it sooner.

If you’ve got a shower curtain ring with an opening, it’ll make the perfect catch-all for your hair ties. Simply open the clasp and pop your bobbles on. 

5. Keep your necklaces neat

Accessorise in the blink of an eye!

No more untangling jewellery! Take a small rail – the kind you’d use for a hand towel –  and add some shower curtain hooks for an easy jewellery organiser.  

6. Garage storage for nuts & bolts

Make DIY a dream.

We love this clever trick by The Family Handyman. Keep all of your nuts and bolts in one place by stringing them onto a shower curtain ring. Just as they’ve done here, you could have a bundle for each type or size. 

7. Give bath toys a home 

Upgrade bathtime.

Bath toys are tricky to store without ending up with a mouldy mess to clean up. Lynette from Cleverly Simple came up with the brilliant idea of attaching baskets to a tension rod with old shower curtain rings.

Take a tension rod and fit it along the length of your bath. Use shower curtain rings or hooks to hang plastic baskets off of the rail at an angle. The water will drain out, leaving the toys tidy and mould free! Just make sure the baskets have holes for adequate drainage. 

TOP TIP: You can either place it low enough for kids to pull out their toys, or high up – out of sight for when you want to have a relaxing bath, without a rubber duck digging in your back! 

8.

Keep your craft station tidy 

Colourful organisation!

Just as with the nuts and bolts, organise your craft supplies by storing your bobbins on a shower curtain ring. Karen from Sew Many Ways shows us how bobbins are just the right rize for sliding on and off the rings with ease!  

Crafts  

9. Sleep easy with this mini dream catcher 

Decorate with beads and feathers.

Bad dreams begone! We could all do with a dream catcher near our bed every now and again, so why not make one with a shower curtain ring?

Use some string, beads, and feathers to make an intricate design.

Here’s the basic method: 

10. DIY some funky bracelets 

Quick and easy! 

Unless you’ve got some really big shower rings, this one is for the kids. See how Uncommon Designs turned old shower rings into fashionable bracelets with duck tape! You could also use beads, paint, glitter or ribbon.  

Let your children have a go at coming up with some funky designs that they can wear with pride. The best part? It didn’t cost you a penny! 

11. Spread some festive cheer with mini wreaths

We’re feeling festive already!

How SWEET is this idea? Just in time for the Christmas season, why not decorate your old shower rings with some green wool or ribbon to transform them into adorable mini wreaths? Add bells, pieces of tinsel, sparkly pipe cleaners and red bows for a really festive craft.

You can use them as tree ornaments, dollhouse decorations or even an extra touch to your gift wrapping! 

Toys & games

12. Upgrade your garden games with a DIY ring toss 

The perfect boredom buster! 

Looking for a fun game to play? Check out this craft from Darice to see how you can make a simple ring toss. 

We think the wooden rings look just like shower curtain rings – get upcycling today!

13. Make some noise 

Jingle bells, jingle bells. ..

Musical instruments don’t have to be expensive! Make your own by attaching a few jingle bells to an old shower curtain ring. 

Just be cautious of small objects and little mouths – always supervise younger children. 

14. Learning made fun 

Help them learn their A-B-C’s.

We love this great DIY by And Next Comes L. Help children to practice their maths or their alphabet by drawing letters or numbers onto shower curtain rings. Ask them to arrange them to spell out words or sums on a leftover cardboard tube. 

This tool will also help to improve dexterity, as children will have to order and arrange the rings onto the tube. 

15. Put on your dancing shoes for this ribbon twirler 

Perfect for a bit of dancing!

Make your own ribbon twirling rings at home. Take a couple of shower curtain rings and attach ribbons to fit your chosen colour scheme. You could do all one colour or make a rainbow! Cut all ribbons to be the same length. 

Children will love dancing around with them!

Home decor

16.

Throw a beautiful dinner party on the cheap

Simply stunning.

Napkin rings don’t have to come with a hefty price tag! Turn your old shower rings into beautifully adorned napkin rings on the cheap. Why not try Celebrate & Decorate’s floral version? 

Here, Chloe Crabtree has stacked a few plastic shower rings together with some glue, covered with ribbon and decorated with a fake sunflower. It couldn’t be easier.

17. Make an expensive looking fruit bowl

How brilliant is this?

 

Make yourself a unique looking fruit bowl just like Natalie Simpson from Recylart by glueing your shower rings together into a half-sphere structure. 

18. Display artwork 

What a great way to display art! 

How about trying this urban artwork display from Rustic Chic? If your shower curtain rings have small clips on them, you can attach artwork for an attractive display. It also doubles up as a drying rack – as long as the paint isn’t too drippy! 

19.

Add some affordable drawer pulls 

Cheaper than hardware. 

If you’ve got a DIY flair, add some drawer pulls with shower curtain rings – it’s easier than you’d think. See how Woodshop Diaries did it for Home Talk. 

20. Decorate with name discs 

We love a nautical theme! 

Always forgetting which towel is yours? Follow this DIY by Cathe Holden from Inspired Barn. Cathe has used some old curtain rings and turned them into name discs for her beach towels.

All Cathe used was a sharpie pen and a stamp set. Genius! 

This would also be great for place names at a quirky wedding.

Types of hooks for curtains

Today, consumers have the opportunity to find on the market of goods and services a wide range of hooks designed for fastening curtains. All existing types differ among themselves not only in size and shape, but also in the material that is used in the production process. It is important to consider that each option has its own advantages and disadvantages, which must be taken into account.

Hooks for ceiling moldings

Hooks used for ceiling moldings are by far the simplest, most affordable and versatile.They are suitable for attaching different types of curtains. You can find a wide assortment on sale, all products may differ in shape, size and material that was used in the production process.

Fasteners can be conditionally divided into several groups:

  • hidden – as a rule, they come complete with cornices, plastic is used for the manufacture of such fasteners, they are small, as a result of which these models are practically invisible under the canvas;
  • decorative – a feature is an attractive appearance, they have an unusual design and shape, as a rule, they are visible after the curtains are hung, they are part of the design.

Thanks to a wide range of products, everyone can choose the option that suits them best.

Hooks for wall curtain rods

As practice shows, curtain rods can be attached not only to the ceiling surface, but also to the wall. Despite the fact that the installation option is significantly different, the fasteners in both cases remain the same. In most cases, the curtains are attached with special rings or blinds and roman blinds are used.A feature of such options used for decorating window openings is a fairly easy process of carrying out installation work.

Plastic hooks for curtain rods

Today, on the market of goods and services, you can find a fairly large number of hooks designed for attaching curtains. The most common type of mounts are made of high quality plastic. As a rule, these fasteners come complete with profile or baguette cornices, in addition, the manufacturer can include them in conjunction with plastic tires.These decorative elements have an acceptable cost, as a result of which everyone can afford them. In addition, plastic hooks are suitable for almost all types of curtains.

When choosing such models, it is worth considering some significant disadvantages:

  • curtains hung on hooks made of plastic can lose their attractive appearance, especially when there are no additional decorative elements on the profile or bus;
  • Plastic models are not recommended for heavy blades – this is due to the fact that the fasteners are rather difficult to slide along the guides.

Only after studying these points, you can make a purchase decision.

Metal curtain hooks

Products made of metal are characterized by a high level of strength. A feature of metal curtain hooks is a reliable fastening method, unlike fasteners made of plastic.Metal products, if necessary, can be used as independent fasteners or combined with other elements, for example, with rings and eyelets.

It is important to consider that these hooks are perfect for all types of canvases used to decorate window openings. In addition, you can find products of various shapes and sizes on sale.

Roller hooks for curtains

A distinctive feature of roller fasteners is the presence of a small rotating wheel.As a rule, this wheel is located in the groove of the guide rail, and when the curtains are moving, it starts to move. Thanks to this element, it is possible to move the curtains in any direction without extraneous noise. In the production process, a polymer is used, which is distinguished by a long service life and resistance to possible deformation and mechanical damage. Such hooks, if necessary, are able to withstand canvases of any weight, including multilayer ones.

How to hang curtains on hooks

As practice shows, fasteners are fixed on a special tape, which is subsequently sewn to the upper part of the canvas.Until recently, such tapes could not be found on sale, as a result of which they were made on their own. This method took quite a lot of time and effort.

Everyone decides for himself how many hooks to place. In most cases, a distance of 10 to 12 cm is made between the elements. As practice shows, the greater the distance, the more beautiful the folds will turn out when the canvas is in the closed state. The size of the fasteners depends entirely on the height of the curtains used.

In order for the curtains to have an attractive appearance, it is recommended to make the distance between the hooks from 5 to 10 cm, not more. In this case, it is necessary to ensure that all parts are installed evenly. Many experts do not recommend threading the fasteners into the cords.

Curtain hooks, plastic and metal grab hooks

The creation of an integral composition of a window opening depends not only on the correctly selected textiles, but also on functional accessories – rings, hooks, eyelets, fabric loops, clothespins.

Curtain hooks occupy a special place among the variety of fasteners, provide easy movement of panels along the cornice and act as an additional decor.

In the role of hooks and in combination with hanging decorations, hooks often become real works of art, admiring the delicate work of the master, as can be seen in the photo.

Features of use

The main task of the hooks is to securely and conveniently fix the curtain to the cornice. They are best suited for airy fabrics and medium-weight curtains, but massive curtains on ordinary hooks look out of place and decently spoil the overall style of the interior.

Advantages and disadvantages

In addition to low cost and convenient operation, curtain hooks have a number of obvious advantages:

  • soft, unimpeded movement of the canvas along the cornice in any direction;
  • long service life;
  • fabric curtains are easy to remove and hang;
  • quick replacement of a broken hook with a new product;
  • are suitable for all types of curtain rods.

Possessing a convenient fastener in the form of a so-called “eyelet”, hooks are often used as a transitional element connecting the curtain panel and rings.

In some cases, crochet hooks are sold on a tape that is sewn to the fabric, eliminating the hassle of preparing the loops, and forming beautiful folds.

As for the disadvantages of such an attachment, then we can only talk about the need for monotonous sewing of each element to the upper part of the curtain, unless another option is provided.The optimal distance between the hooks is 10 cm. Based on this, the number of products for each canvas is calculated, for more details you can watch the videos presented in sufficient quantities on the Internet.

It is important to equip the edges of the cornice with special clamps so that the hooks do not fly off the groove, as shown in the photo.

Types of hooks

The choice of fastening option is determined by the functional features and the material from which the curtain hooks are made.

Depending on the design and purpose, the following types are distinguished:

  • decorative and hidden;
  • basic and transitional;
  • closed and open.

Concealed hooks are made from simple materials and are hidden in the folds of the curtain or behind the inside of the cornice.

With the help of decorative hooks, you can not only hang fabric, but also come up with a beautiful solution for the window.

The main hooks act as an independent fastening option, and the transitional clamps become a connecting element between the cornice and various types of decor – eyelets, rings or clips.

It is much easier to hang a curtain on open products, although stringing them on one loop is very tedious. Loops do not fall off closed hooks and they slide better along the cornice, but when washing you will have to remove the entire string.

By type of material hooks are:

  • plastic;
  • metal;
  • combined.

Plastic products are not expensive, at the same time they are distinguished by noiseless movement and perfectly withstand fairly dense fabrics. Plastic is considered the best choice for the bathroom, as it is resistant to moisture and does not corrode. However, over time, plastic hooks wear out and deform, which leads to slipping of the hinges and disruption of the overall composition of the window.

Brass, aluminum, sometimes steel are used for the manufacture of metal clamps.They are much stronger and more reliable in operation, but they move noisily along the cornice and can become covered with rust or bloom if they are made of low-quality material.

The combination of plastic and metal is considered an ideal solution, including for the bathroom, using the strengths of both types and leveling out the obvious disadvantages.

Fixation of grabs

Use the grab hooks to secure the curtain in an attractive, rounded shape, pulling the fabric against the wall.

Clips can be completely invisible, focusing on the beauty of the canvas, or they can act as a separate decorative element in the form of flowers, ornaments, snails, animal heads, unusual figures and others.

Wall hooks are made of durable materials and must be fastened with self-tapping screws or special brackets. On sale you can find ready-made sets of accessories that are sold with the cornice and have something in common with it in design and decoration.

In addition to wall elements, hooks are used for clamps, which imperceptibly fix the shape of the assembled curtain from the seamy side without shifting to the side, like a hair clip.

These accessories are made of wood, plastic or light metal.

Tips for choosing hooks

To choose the right curtain hooks, there are several important aspects to consider:

  1. Curtain rod type.For the standard round version, rings are best, and on a flat baguette console, hooks made of plastic, designed for curtains with rollers, should be attached.
  2. Size of loops.
  3. Intensity of curtains use. A tulle or light curtain in one position can be hung on transparent hooks sewn onto the ribbon. And for double curtains and a complex textile composition, placement on stronger and more durable clips will be optimal.
  4. Stylistic decoration of the premises. Not all interior design options allow the use of hooks. Extreme savings in accessories will ruin the overall look and feel of the room.
  5. Fabric weight. Under the mass of heavy curtains, the hooks will quickly deform and break, so their use is not advisable for all types of fabric.
  6. The hooks are recommended to be replaced every two years, and the metal clip tape should be used for curtains that will only be dry cleaned.

How to hang curtains on the ceiling cornice on hooks: rules for installing the cornice

Window decoration in the room begins with the selection of curtains. Depending on the design of the room, they can be represented by light tulle curtains, massive structures made of dense fabrics or decorative chains. But curtains cannot simply hang in weightlessness over windows.For this, there are special ceiling cornices.

Practically the most common cornices are ceiling cornices.

Window decoration with curtains on the ceiling cornice

Ceiling cornices are more advantageous in terms of practical and aesthetic indicators than conventional wall cornices. Firstly, the structure itself is installed on the ceiling. In the classic versions of the cornice, installation is carried out in the middle of the section of the wall, which is located above the window. Thus, the upper edge of the curtains does not completely cover the space under the ceiling, creates an extra horizontal line and makes the walls visually shorter.The ceiling cornice eliminates all these disadvantages.

Hanging curtains on the ceiling cornice is much easier than it sometimes seems to non-professionals.

Secondly, ceiling cornices have a variety of design and construction options:

  • Pipes of various diameters, stylized in a retro style;
  • Fine strings;
  • Baguettes, gathering fabric in massive folds;
  • Practical tires.

Ceiling cornices are a very successful design.

Certain types of ceiling curtain rods can cover the top of the curtains with frames, which can also be of different sizes, colors, styles and materials. So, for example, for a classic interior, a plastic frame with a shade like the ceiling is suitable. And minimalism and consistency of modernity will emphasize the metal of a light shade.

Wooden frames can be used for jacquard or country interiors.

Thirdly, cornices can differ in shape:

  • Straight,
  • Curly (wave, snake, etc.)
  • With folds (bay window, multi-row bay window with folds, reverse two-lane bay window with folds, double-row cornice),
  • Single and multi-tiered.

Ceiling curtain rods have proven themselves to be excellent in use.

Fourth, there are many options for attaching fabric to the cornice. They can be presented in the form:

  • Kryuchkov;
  • Rings;
  • Tires;
  • Strings, etc.

For the curtain to hang beautifully, the distance between the hooks should not exceed six centimeters.

However, all these types are not universal for each type of cornice. For example, curtain rods consisting of only one string are best used in rooms where windows are decorated with light tulle so that the structure can withstand the weight of the fabric.

Nicely matched curtains for the ceiling cornice add comfort to the room.

Important! There is only one piece of fabric per row of strings or hooks. Otherwise, the fixings inside the eaves may not be able to support the weight of all curtains.

If the interior needs to achieve maximum layering or complexity of window decoration, it is better to use a plastic ceiling cornice for double-row curtains with hooks.They are better able to withstand thick and heavy fabrics.

Multiple rows will allow you to put several types of fabrics and decorative elements on one window.

It is necessary to measure the length of the ceiling cornice and the height of the room.

Installation of a completely assembled cornice, although it requires more time and someone else’s help, is much easier than redoing the entire work yourself several times. After all, it is at the assembly stage that it becomes clear what specific length the cornice is needed. And if necessary, you can correct its dimensions with a hacksaw or return it to the store.

A suitable shape and design of the ceiling holder must be selected in advance.

Important! At the assembly stage, it is better to immediately fix all the hooks on which the curtains will hang with the help of plugs. After installing the product, it will not be so easy to do this.

The next step is marking. To do this, you only need a pencil, a ruler and a building level. With these stationery, you need to draw a straight line along the entire length of the cornice, constantly measuring the distance from the wall with a ruler. If the cornice has only two attachment points to the wall, then the attachment points must be symmetrically marked on the straight line.

Depending on the style of the curtain ensemble, a holder with the required number of rows must be installed on the ceiling.

Curtain rods are always installed on a solid and stable surface. Therefore, the installation sequence (third stage) is practically the same in all cases. An exception is the way of fixing the cornice.

Methods of fastening to a concrete ceiling

The third stage – installation for a concrete ceiling is carried out using a dowel of nails or glue, which withstands from 15 to 80 kg / cm.

Before you start installing the ceiling holder, you must carefully study the instructions attached to the curtain rod.

For adhesive mounting, proceed as follows.

  1. Substrate preparation. It must be removed from all impurities in the form of paint or whitewash.
  2. The surface must then be leveled and primed.
  3. Leave to dry completely.
  4. When the surface is ready, you need to tackle the cornice itself.
  5. Glue is applied to the structure with a snake and applied to the ceiling.

The successful fastening of curtain fabrics will depend on the competently performed work.

Over the next 3 days, the glue will dry out, therefore it is not recommended to immediately hang curtains on it.

Fastening the curtain rail to the ceiling

  1. Determining the length of the curtain rod. If necessary, remove the excess length with a hacksaw.
  2. Measure the tire and divide it equally.
  3. Cut the metal into equal parts.
  4. File the sides.
  5. Designate the locations for the anchor bolts and self-tapping screws, taking into account the ceiling, the weight of the fabric and the number of lines for attaching the curtains.

These fasteners have increased wear resistance.

Important! If the fabric for the cornice is light, then the bolts and screws are located at a distance of 60-70 cm. If the curtains are heavy, then it decreases to 20-50 cm.

  1. Drill holes.
  2. Place the tire against the marked line on the ceiling.
  3. Mark the fixing points.
  4. Drill holes in the ceiling.
  5. Place rail and secure.

In order for the curtain products to hang in beautiful folds, you need to know how to properly hang curtains on the ceiling cornice using different types of fasteners.

Important! The holes for each type of fastening are different: for anchors, the holes in the ceiling and on the rail are the same, and for self-tapping screws, they are 1.5 – 2 mm smaller.

When the tire is securely fastened, it remains only to insert the hooks inside and hang the curtain itself.

How to calculate the correct length of curtains on a tape for a ceiling cornice?

All calculations on how to correctly measure the curtains must be made only after the cornice has been installed. This rule works in all cases, regardless of what type of cornice (ceiling or wall).

The beauty of curtains depends a lot on how they are hung.

To make all measurements, you need to take a construction tape.Its desirable size is from 3 meters. So that with its help it was possible to make calculations not only of the height, but also of the width of the fabric.

The wide tape can be used to create beautiful folds.

As for measuring the length itself, it directly depends on individual preferences. Curtains can be shortened to the windowsill, to the radiator, long ones that do not touch the floor, or vice versa with a margin, etc. But, in spite of everything, one general rule works: measurements should be made not at the lowest point of the cornice, but at the place of attachment of the fabric.Hooks, rings, clothespins, etc. This rule does not work only in cases where the fabric is fixed with ties or eyelets.

For the manufacture of light curtains, soft fabrics are used that lend themselves well to drapery.

The peculiarity of the curtains on the tape is that they are attached to the hooks from the curtain tape. They are hidden on the seamy side of the fabric and are one of the key parts of the curtains. Therefore, measurements must be taken taking into account the presence of the tape, and not only the length of the curtain fabric.

Hooks are used to attach the curtain to the profile cornice.

Instructions for calculating the height of the curtain on the tape

For each option of the length of the curtains, there are unspoken rules for how many centimeters they should be from the nearest horizontal surface, namely:

  1. Shortened curtains should be 1 cm above the window sill;
  2. The average length of curtains is considered to be 10-15 cm below the windowsill;
  3. Long curtains do not touch the floor and are 5-6 cm above it;
  4. The elongated curtains have a full length from the attachment to the floor, and an additional 15-20 cm must be added to the resulting size.

The overall decoration of the room can be influenced not only by the quality of the material, but also by the way the curtains are fastened.

After the length of the fabric has been calculated taking into account the requirements, it is time to take care of the curtain tape, for which the curtain fabric clings to the cornice. Its standard size is 6 cm wide and has two attachment lines.

Many curtains on ceiling cornices are fixed to the braid.

So that the braid overlaps the hooks and does not add extra centimeters to the main length of the curtains, it is sewn to the upper edge of the fabric by a quarter of its width.And the fabric itself is hung by the lower near row of hooks.

Everything should be in combination and harmony with the environment of the room.

Thus, the calculations will look like this. Having measured the length from the attachment to the floor, we got an indicator of 247 cm.Add 6 cm of braid to this indicator and subtract 3 cm to close the hook or ring on which the product will hang. There remains another 3 cm, which make up the second row of loops and the place where the fabric is attached. As a result, the canvas turns out to be 250 cm.It is this indicator that must be indicated when ordering.

It is also worth considering the functional purpose of the curtains, that is, whether they will constantly move apart and move.

The main mistakes when installing the curtain rod and hanging curtains

  1. It is imperative to use plugs and stoppers for curtains so that the fabric is evenly distributed along the entire length.
  2. Peep-hole installation is not the right option. Before installing the eaves, it is necessary to symmetrically mark the joining of the structure to the ceiling.
  3. Self-installation of the cornice is not desirable and difficult. After all, you cannot simultaneously fix the screws with a perforator and make sure that the cornice does not deviate from the line.
  4. For ceilings of different finishes – different self-tapping screws. So, for example, for a putty base, plastic fasteners are needed, and steel fasteners for concrete.
  5. It is important to use an additional ceiling mount in the middle of the cornice if it is medium to large.

    By choosing the fixing that matches your ceiling cornice, you can hang the curtains and enjoy a cozy home interior.

  6. The cornice itself should be longer than the width of the window: at least 20 cm on each side.
  7. The distance from the window to the curtain should be at least 10 cm so that the fabric does not touch the radiator.
  8. Self-tapping screws must be installed in the wall together with dowels.
  9. The length of the fabric should be measured not from the base of the cornice, but the joint of the fabric and the attachment.
  10. The main mistake of incorrect measurement is that many do not take into account the width of the curtain tape, which is included in the curtain length when ordering.Thus, most of the curtains are of the wrong length.

There is another type of decorative fittings – special holders that are used together with curtain hooks, fixing the curtain fabric on the sides, slightly opening the window and forming beautiful folds.

Features

Hooks for fixing curtains on the cornice are sold individually, but sometimes you can see a special curtain tape on sale with hooks strung on it. It can be simply stitched onto the curtain fabric. The fastening elements here are securely attached to the string, from which they will not slip, therefore this solution is more reliable.

Hooks should be chosen so that they serve a long time, but at the same time are reliable. The choice often depends on the type of cornice: elements attached to rings are suitable for round rods, and plastic products with wheels are suitable for a baguette structure. Be sure to use the clips so that the curtain does not fall at the most unexpected moment.

Hooks are most often hidden from view, therefore they do not greatly affect the decor of the curtain.They can be used in almost any style and for any room.

  • Hidden products can be made of plastic, metal or other material that is not conspicuous, the mount is hidden in the curtain folds or under the decor of the console.

  • Transitional are clips that are a link between hinges, eyelets, clamps and cornice. At the bottom of the structure there are clothespins for which the fabric is attached, and at the top there is a hook that clings to the ring.
  • Basic hooks act as a stand-alone fixing device that does not require a companion element.

  • Closed options snap into place on the cornice, after which they move freely along the rod, so the hinges on the curtains, over which the hooks are hooked, cannot come off. There is no need to be afraid when moving the curtain: it is very securely fixed to the cornice.
  • Opened are easy to use and can be easily fitted with curtain loops.If necessary, the curtains can be quickly removed, while it is not at all necessary to dismantle the cornice.

In addition to the main group, there is a decorative accessory that fixes the hooks. This product is also called a hook. Such fittings are used to fix the curtain fabric with grabs. Their task is to pull the material aside, forming a rounded fold.

The design of these elements can be very different. It can be completely invisible, focusing all attention on beautiful textiles, and pretentious, when they themselves act as decoration.

The surface of products is often decorated with a wide variety of images: a flower, an ornament, an animal’s head, a snake, a snail, and much more that a design idea is capable of. This type of hook is mounted on a wall or window slope with self-tapping screws, as well as special brackets. In aesthetic terms, sometimes there is something in common with the design of the cornice. They are often sold as a set.

Materials

Curtain hooks are made of different materials:

  • Plastic is considered the cheapest. Hooks made of it will not be able to withstand curtains that are heavy, but they are well suited to hold air curtains. The main advantage of such accessories will be the silent sliding and opening of the curtains. True, over time, plastic wear is observed, and this leads to deformation and loss of performance.
  • For the manufacture of metal products use aluminum, brass, steel. This mount is considered the most reliable, however, they may not cope with multilayer curtains.Compared to plastic hooks, they create noise during operation. It is necessary to choose a quality material, otherwise it may corrode.

The combination of plastic and metal is necessary for the product to have all the positive properties of both materials at once.

  • Plastic, iron and metal-plastic hooks are designed to hold lightweight fabrics and medium-weight fabrics.If it is necessary to use very heavy multi-layer and voluminous curtains in the interior, they can only be held by eyelets or loops.

If for some reason you do not like any of the options, you can make original curtain hooks from available tools.

  • Staples. Try using this stationery for attaching curtains. The extraordinary variety of paper clips makes it possible to make something unique.For example, you can fasten one to the other, bend it interestingly, find an unusual color.
  • Pins. Sewing accessories are also distinguished by their variety. Decorative pins are always on sale. Creative designers hang curtains on them. Try it yourself.
  • Wire. The hook can be made from regular wire. To do this, it is figuratively bent, forming the holder itself, then decorated with beads, beads, flowers or other material or decorative elements.

There are many options for making decorative products for fastening curtains from what is in the house. The main thing is the manifestation of imagination and a willingness to experiment.

How to hang correctly?

It is necessary to hang curtains taking into account different types of structures. There are several types of cornices on which the curtains are put on with the help of hooks:

  • forged;
  • ceiling;
  • aluminum;
  • bay window;
  • 90,023 strings;

  • rail of old and new design.

There are many options for fixing curtains to the eaves. Among them, curtain hooks are the most common option. They are attached to rings and also act as stand-alone mounts.

The most common application of this fastening element together with profile cornices, they are mounted on the wall and to the ceiling. It is possible to use hooks to fix the fabric on the cornice-string, they are well suited to round models.

Fixing the curtains with the curtain tape is extremely simple in execution.A ribbon is attached to the edge of the curtain, which has strong threads in one or two rows. They act as loops. The hooks, catching on to them, hide behind the folds of the fabric, as the braid pulls the fabric, creating even vertical folds, and the level of their splendor can be adjusted.

Features of hook fastening with curtain tape:

  • Ideal for attaching curtains to an open cornice;
  • universal mount, equally suitable for most types of curtains;
  • affordable price;
  • very long service life.

Weightless curtains that will not block access to the balcony, which will be stationary, must be fixed with transparent plastic hooks. They are usually sewn to the curtain tape. On ceiling models of curtain rods, which are a tire, the only possible fastening for curtains will be hooks with a roller.

Sometimes hooks are sewn directly onto the fabric to securely hold them in place. These canvases have to be washed along with the fittings.If the hooks are plastic, then nothing terrible will happen, because plastic does not react to water in any way. It is better not to sew steel hooks, but to use a different method of fixing to the curtain. Metal can oxidize in water and stain the fabric with rust, which can be difficult to remove.

At what distance to mount?

In order for the curtains to drape beautifully, the optimal distance between adjacent hooks should be 10 centimeters.At the same time, it has been proven in practice that the more centimeters between the hooks, the deeper and more expressive the vertical fold on the curtain, and vice versa, the small distance between the fasteners makes the curtains less expressive. However, do not hang the canvas on hooks that are too rarely located. The fabric will sag ugly, but it always looks sloppy.

  • On an arched window. Fastening with hooks can also be used without a curtain rod. Recently, this technique has become very popular due to its originality.It is usually used to decorate an arched window. In order to hang the curtain in this way, you need to install special decorative or ordinary household hooks for clothes above the oval of the opening at a distance from each other. Then the loops on the curtain are hung by the hooks at different heights. Such a fastening is reliable, it can withstand even very heavy curtains.

Types of attachment of curtains to the cornice

Thick curtains and light tulle curtains give the living space the coziness and comfort that each of us needs at home.We try to decorate window openings beautifully and aesthetically, carefully choosing curtains and cornices. But we do not always pay attention to small details – clothespins (as well as hooks, rings, eyelets, clips and other devices), with which the curtains cling to the cornice. Such seemingly simple hooks, rings, clips or hooks can turn ordinary textiles into a luxurious piece of interior decoration.

It turns out that such fasteners are of different types and they can and should also be selected, like curtains, according to the style and design of this particular type of room.It should be said right away that the types of fastening of curtains to the cornice differ not only in shape, color and materials from which they are made. Below are brief descriptions of the most basic and popular types and methods of such devices that exist in our time.

Methods for attaching curtains to the cornice

Curtain tape or tape is considered a universal way of attaching curtains to the curtain rod. This white tape is sewn to the top of the curtains from the back.With the help of several rows of ropes in it, when they are tightened, beautiful frequent small vertical folds are formed on textiles. The adjustment takes place, of course, manually independently. If you sew such a tape on the curtains, you will not need to sew on the eyelets for the plastic hooks on the curtains, which are great for attaching such products to the curtain rod.

Clips and clothespins are easy to fasten textiles to the cornice, for example, if there are no other fasteners on the purchased curtains or the curtains were made at home by yourself.These inventions are devices in the form of simple or decorated clothespins and clips, which can be either plastic or metal. It should be noted that such products can spoil the fabric of curtains, leaving clues on them, this is especially true for thin and light materials.

Magnets are a type of fastening in the form of a clip on magnets, with the help of which the fabric is fixed on these fasteners. It’s simple. They are ideal for thin and light fabrics.Such devices are good if there is no other attachment on the curtains you bought or sewn yourself.

Hooks (usually plastic) are used to hang curtains from the cornice, to which a curtain tape has been sewn (a special tape with eyelets and pulling ropes). You can, of course, do without a curtain tape, but then you have to sew on the loops by hand, and this is a rather time-consuming and long process, so it is better to purchase such a special tape for curtains.

Types of fastening of curtains on windows

Curtains with hinges (relatively short or long) are comfortable and practical. It is quite convenient to put on such curtains on the cornice. Loops can be sewn directly into the fabric or unfastened from it using different fasteners (buttons, buttons, Velcro). The loops themselves can be from exactly the same material as the curtains, or from a different fabric, which are perfectly combined with each other. You can also make such loops manually at home, creating your own design for the design of the window opening.

Curtain rings look incredibly impressive with the right choice of curtains for them. Large massive metal rings go well with heavy straight curtains, especially with high ceilings and in rather large rooms. Such rings are attached to the curtain tape or to the outer edge.

Curtains on eyelets represent textiles in the upper part of which metal or plastic rings are fixed directly into the fabric (these are eyelets).Such curtains are suitable for those rooms in the design of which strict forms and clear straight lines prevail. Directly through these rings, the curtains can be put on a tubular cornice, if the size of the rings allows it.

Curtains with ties in the form of a simple braid or even an elegant bow. Experienced craftswomen can create such simple fasteners with their own hands quite simply and even quickly in ordinary home conditions. Such fasteners, for example, are perfect for light curtains in the kitchen, creating an airy romantic atmosphere and a light joyful spring mood.

Drawstring curtains should be attached directly to the curtain rod, as well as eyelet curtains. A drawstring is a detail (sleeve) in the upper part of the curtains in the form of an additional or the same strip of material, which forms a through cavity inside or a kind of “tunnel” for threading a rod of a tubular cornice into it.
