3 fantastic solutions for hanging curtains in awkward spaces

3 fantastic solutions for hanging curtains in awkward spaces

Hanging curtains can sometimes be a bit of a pain, especially if your windows aren’t easy to reach. Even worse, those with awkwardly shaped windows will probably be at a loss for how to even begin hanging curtains in their home.

But all is not lost. No matter how out of reach or oddly shaped your windows are, you can guarantee there’ll be a curtain pole design out there to suit.

Take a look at these top tips to figure out where to start:

1) Window frames without wall space

Traditionally, curtain poles are attached to the wall, but this isn’t always possible. In some cases, this may be because there simply isn’t enough wall space available, and in others it may impossible to drill through the wall. A lot of modern apartment buildings have metal beams running through the walls, meaning you won’t be able to hang your curtains normally.

This is where a ceiling curtain track can come in handy. These special curtain poles attach to the ceiling rather than the wall and, as an added bonus, this means you can enjoy stylish floor-to-ceiling curtains.

2) Hard to reach dormer windows

Dormer windows may look great, but they can be a nuisance when it comes to opening and closing your curtains. If you have to get a step ladder out every time you want to draw your curtains, consider fitting a swing arm curtain rod.

These curtain poles are attached to the wall and have a free arm that a curtain can be hung from. When you want to draw your curtains, simply move the arm to rest flush against the wall.

3) Finding curtain poles for extra-wide windows

Some windows are absolutely huge and while this can look great, it can mean finding curtain poles to cover them is a real chore. A lot of retailers only sell curtain poles in standard lengths, but it is possible to find made-to-measure ones.

You can buy bespoke curtain rails or extra-wide tracks that you can cut down to size with a hacksaw, so you can fit curtains of the ideal size.

Do you have any other tips for dealing with awkward windows?
