Short curtain rods – When you hang heavy drapes over clean curtains in two layers, you have the choice of darker a room completely. Custom designed double curtain bars help you hang two layers of curtains over a single window. Double sticks can also be used to hang a Valance over drapes or hangers, clean “Privacy” drapes behind solid decorative draperies. If you hang a decorative coat over curtains, you can also use two separate rods.
Hang double bracket that comes with the double rod on either side of the window at the desired height. Hang the drapery on the short curtain rods. If the tablecloth is hanging from the rings, run them on the bar before setting it up, and then attach the curtain to the rings. If your curtain hangs from hooks, put the rod up first and hang the hooks on the rod, then attach the curtain to the hooks. Hang outside curtain or coat the same way.
Hang the consoles for the “under” curtain on each side of the window at the desired height. Hang the console for the short curtain rods half inch outside of the first consoles and higher than the first consoles. This rod may be several inches higher than the first rod, as long as the edge of the screen is long enough to cover the top of the lower curtains.
