Lets start right at the beginning: Step ladders: Make sure you have a steady pair of steps not to short so you over reach. Your arms will drop of before you have taken your first lesson in how to hang curtains. Not to tall that you cannot reach the window comfortably without leaning out to the side to hang curtains throwing you off balance. Curtain hooks for standard pencil pleat curtain tape Curtain hooks Again make sure before you start that you have enough of the right kind of curtain hooks Light curtains will be fine with standard plastic hooks.
You just have to learn how to hang curtains and dress them properly. prepping your pencil pleat curtains prior to hanging: Standard pencil pleat curtains to start you will need to gather the tape on the top of your curtains. You do this by pulling out the 3 cords in the back of the curtain tape. To start pull the cords out of both ends of the curtain tape and tie them together in a firm knot. There are 2 reasons for this 1. It stops you pulling the cords completely out of the tape (not a good start when learning how to hang curtains). 2. It keeps the cords together on the end that you pull the cords out to gather your curtain. Then continue to pull the cords out.
So the finished width that you want to gather each of your pair of curtains is 52 inches. The more you learn how to hang curtains, the more this becomes second nature. Before you hang curtains.stop and check! Before you start to hang your curtain you need to lay your curtain down on a table or the floor and check the gathered width is about right. Then if to narrow then pull out the tape a little. If to wide then gather in the tape a little more. what about the surplus cord? Finally sorting out all that surplus cord and evening up the pleats in the tape.
