Frequently Asked Questions
How do you install and hang curtain rods?

Please, check Pillow Talk installation instructions here.

How long should your curtain rod be?

Depending on your desired look and window size your curtain rod can be a variety of lengths. As a rule of thumb however, your curtain rod should extend 10-30cm either side of the window to ensure when the drapes are open, the window is fully visible to let maximum light in. However, to create the look of a wider window increase the rod size past 30cm on either side. You can mark out in pencil your measurements on the wall to help visualise the finished product (this can be removed by an eraser when finished).

How to drape and hang a curtain over a rod?

Pillow Talk offers curtains in a range of different header types including eyelet rings, concealed tab top and rod pocket. It is an easy process to hang each of these on a curtain rod; simply slide the curtain rod through either the metal eyelet rings, the fabric tabs on the back of the curtain, or through the fabric rod pocket. The different header types impact the way the curtain drapes when it is on the rod. Eyelets will create a more structured look while the concealed tab top and rod pocket headers will hide the curtain rod from view and give a more relaxed drape.

How many curtain rod brackets do I need?

The quantity of curtain rod brackets needed depends on the type and number of rods required for your window treatment. As well as the size of your window. Typically, one bracket should be placed at either side of your window to keep the rod in place hanging between them. However, if your window size is larger, a third bracket in the middle of the window may be beneficial to stop bending in the rod over time.

How do you install curtain brackets?
  • Measure your windows to ensure you are getting the correct curtain rod.
  • To do this, measure the width of your window and add 30cm to either end allowing for overhang.
  • Mark out where you would like the brackets placed above the window frame. A leveller is handy here to ensure the holes are level for your rods.
  • We recommend installing the brackets about 15cm wider than the edge of the window architrave.
  • You can also use a stud finder to see if your brackets can align with studs.
  • Drill in the brackets to the wall.
How far apart should curtain brackets be placed?

Curtain brackets should be placed 30cm either side and 5 – 15cm above the window or halfway between the top of the window and ceiling. However, this could be widened or enlarged if you want your window to appear larger than it is.
