Hanging curtains can be a frustrating task, but not to worry - I have some ideas to help.
1. If you're looking for an easy way to hang a curtain without mounting brackets, get a tension rod that will fit the width of the window and pull your drape over the rod. Once the curtain is in place, all you have to do is secure the tension rod into the window frame, and straighten out the curtain.
2. If you need a way to hide that tension rod for tab top or sheer curtains, slip it through a copper pipe for those tab tops, or a PVC pipe for the sheers.
3. An easy window treatment for the bathroom is to buy three nice cotton shower curtains. Use one for the shower and the others for the window. It's the perfect match, and if you buy the kind with tie tops you don't have to worry about curtain hooks. Plus, you know they'll stand up to the moisture in the bathroom because that's exactly what they were designed for.
