They provide an interesting focal point to your door when you place it through an empty entranceway, or pick the settings where you need something a little more substantive than a door curtain. In fact, it’s the perfect room divider for those closed doors individuals may want to spare their house visitors from trekking to find a bathroom.
Are you ready to learn how to hang door curtain panels? You really can have some nice looking fabric panel and add it to doors in just a few easy steps.
How To Hang Curtain Panels On French Doors
If you’re looking for a way to hang your curtain panels on French doors, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to show you how to use sash rods and curtain rail to accomplish this task.
Using Sash Rods
Hanging curtain panels on French doors can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be! We’ve got the perfect solution: sash rods.
First, measure the width of your French door and mark it with a pencil. Then measure the length from top to bottom of your window and mark this measurement onto each end of your curtain panel. Finally, cut a piece of door window curtain rod that is about twice as long as the width of your French door and at least twice as tall as your window height (this allows for an overlap at each end).
Next, attach one end of the sash rod to the top corner of one side of your French door using a screwdriver or drill with a drill bit; repeat on the other side. Then hang your curtain panel over this rod by lining up both ends with the marks you made earlier. Adjust if necessary so that there is enough space between rods to allow curtains to fully open without touching each other while still covering the entire window when closed.
Using a Curtain Rail
If you’ve got a French door and want to hang some curtains on it, you’re in luck! This project is super simple, and can be done with curtain rail.
First, measure the width of your door. The curtain rail needs to be about 2 inches shorter than the width of your door—but not too much shorter! You don’t want to have to readjust the curtain every time you open or close the door. If you do want a little bit more room for error, though, go ahead and add an extra 2 inches to your measurement just in case.
Next, measure from top to bottom (the length) of where you want your curtain rail to hang on the French door frame. Make sure this measurement isn’t too long or too short for what you’re looking for; if it’s too long, it’ll stick out past the edges of your doors; if it’s too short, it won’t be able to reach all the way across.
Install your curtain rails by screwing them into place using either a screwdriver or drill according to their instructions. Be careful when installing these because they’re very heavy!
How Do You Hang Curtains On a Door Without Nails?
We’ve all been there. You want to hang some curtains on the door, but it doesn’t have any nails or holes to put them through. What do you do?
Using Magnetic Curtain Rods
Well, if you’re looking for a quick and easy solution, try using magnetic curtain rods! They’re not only easy to install, but they come in a variety of sizes and colors so you can find one that matches your home’s decor.
First, decide what height you want your curtains to hang at. Make sure the height is even on both sides of the door; this will give the best appearance when they’re open and closed. Once you’ve decided on a height, measure down from there with your tape measure and mark where each bracket should go along the top of your door frame with a pencil or pen—these marks should be directly opposite each other so that when you attach them later, they’ll line up perfectly with one another and create a straight line across the top of your door frame.
To install them on the door, simply place the end of the rod on top of where the curtain would be hung, then use two screws to attach it to the door frame. Then put another screw through one of the holes at the base of the rod so it will stay in place. And voila! You’ve got yourself a new way to hang curtains without having to drill anything into your walls or doors!
Using Tension Rods
If you’re looking to hang curtains on a door without nails, tension rods are the way to go.
If you have a pair of tension rods for curtains, all you need is some time and patience. The only tool that’s required is a hammer; everything else can be done with your hands.
- Take down the old curtains from the door and lay them flat on the floor.
- Place one of your tension rods into each of the top corners of your curtain panels; make sure that the rod goes through both layers of fabric (the curtain itself and then the lining).
- Loop the end of each rod around so that it forms a circle, then slide it through its corresponding hole in your door jamb or header molding (you’ll need to put something heavy over these holes so they stay open while you do this).
- Use your hammer to tap each end of each rod until they are as close together as possible without overlapping (this will create some tension in your curtain panel).
How Do You Fit A Door Curtain?
Curtain fittings can be a little bit confusing, especially if you’re not used to working with them. In this post, we’ll walk you through how to fit a door curtain so that it looks great and works well for you!
First, measure the height of your door and then add 1/2 inch to each side. This will ensure that your curtain won’t hang too low or too high. Next, measure across the top of the door (or bottom if it’s hinged on the top) and add 2 inches to each side. This will ensure that your curtain won’t hang too low or too high.
Next, measure down from the top of your door and mark where you want your curtain to sit (we recommend about 7 inches). Then measure down from the top of your door again and mark where you want your curtain to sit (we recommend about 7 inches). Then take these two measurements and add them together—this is how long you need to cut your fabric! You might want a little extra length just in case but 1 foot should be plenty! If this seems confusing at all then don’t worry—we’ve got some helpful videos here that should clear things up!
Are Door Curtains a Good Idea?
The answer is… it depends.
If you’re looking for a way to add some privacy to your living room, a door curtain can be a great option. They’re also great for bedrooms if you want to add a little romance to your space. But they don’t work well in kitchens or bathrooms—those spaces need ventilation, so closing the door will make them stuffy and humid.
Door curtains are also good for giving you some extra time before entering into an area of your home, like when you have guests over. This can make it easier for people who are shy or get embarrassed easily by giving them time to prepare themselves before being seen by others in the room.
Are Door Curtains Good For Patio Doors?
Door curtains are a great option if you’re looking to add some privacy to your patio doors, but they don’t have to be just for patios. You can also use them on sliding glass doors or even regular old-fashioned doors. They come in all sorts of styles and colors, so there’s definitely one that will look great with your decor.
Door curtains are designed specifically for patio doors, so they’ll fit perfectly and won’t blow in the wind like regular curtains might. They also tend to be made from fabrics that won’t soak up water from rain or snow, so they’ll last longer than most regular window coverings. Plus, because they’re designed for doors, they often have tiebacks that attach easily and stay securely in place.
You can choose the exact length that works best for your space. The same goes for width and height—you can adjust these too! This makes door curtains a great choice if you have children or pets who need extra privacy while they sleep.
So if you want to add some privacy but don’t want to install full-on blinds or shades on your patio door, then door curtains are probably right up your alley!
