HOW TO PUT UP A CURTAIN POLE
This task can seem daunting and difficult, you call for help, you call your dad, get your neighbor. But in reality this task is an easy 'Do-It-Yourself'. We have broke this task down in to three stages with some images to assist.
The brackets for your curtain pole should be at least 50 mm (5 cm) from either end of the recess. With a pencil, mark the positions for the brackets at both sides. To ensure accuracy use a long spirit level to check that both markings are level with each other.
After ensuring that there is no piping or cables behind the wall drill at the pencil marks with a masonry bit end. When you have your holes drilled out simply add wall plugs and screw the brackets into place.
Ready the curtains as you want them on the wall. This may require some cutting or adjusting to length. Once this is completed simply hang your pole over the brackets.
TOP TIP: When hanging your curtains always have the last ring of either side on the outside of the bracket.
