Collapsing Curtains, flimsy rods....What to do?
(Washington, DC )
I'm hoping you can help me figure out how to hang curtains (52" x 63") with a window frame that has no proper space (that I can figure) to hang a curtain rod.
As you can see, while I could attach one part of the curtain rod to the right(assuming I can drill through the wall - had issues before...!), I cannot attach the other part on the left because there is no room.
I've tried to find hardware that would attach to the ceiling as a possible solution, but haven't come across anything.
In the meantime, we've been using a tension rod...with not much luck; The sides of the window frame are apparently uneven, so the rod slowly becomes displaced.
The curtains are in my 9 month old's room - and the collapsing curtains wake him...and then us, up!
We've already got blinds up but they don't keep out much light, unfortunately. As we're renters, installing new/different blinds is not an ideal option - so please help us with the curtains query. Thanks!
Any help/advice sincerely appreciated!
What you seem to be looking for is a rod that can be screwed into the wall at the place where your tension rod is now.
There are some rods that have the option of being installed as and outside mount or an inside mount as you can see in this sketch.
