So here is a mini-guide which can help you with getting the curtain rods thus you can have those wonderful curtains and drapes that you already desired. Here are the tools that you will have to have around; measuring tape, pencils, drill, screwdriver, level, and hammer. If you have the regular hidden curtain rods types, then you need to measure about 3-5 inches out from the windows and from the top about 1.5 inches up. In each of the sides, you need to mark the spot using a pencil and apply the level to double-check in which the unseen line is straight and level.

Once you have that done, then you have to go with the directions that the hanging curtain rods came with to hang it right on the windows.

First you need to get hold of the stud finder, it will be easy to get it at a local hardware store and it will not be expensive. As you have it, you have to mark the spots in which the studs are placed. If you do not want to expend your money on purchasing the finder gadget, then you need to attach the curtain rods close to the windows trim as you most likely will face a stud there. But you have to make sure that you do not employ very short screws seeing that you require them to get through the whole drywall right into the wood with the aim of keeping the hanging curtain rods safe and protected for quite a long time.

Of course if you want to put the curtain rods inside the wood trim, then you can screw it in the wood using mounting brackets. A last alternative, if you have none of that above at hand when you want to place the hanging curtain rods, is by taking a walk to a local hardware store and then ask for anchors and also EZ toggles.
