A question often asked by many homeowners is how to hang two shower curtains on one rod. This article will teach you the best way to do this and why it is so important to do. Don’t waste any more time and follow along to learn the simple tips to get started!
First of all, you want to make sure that you have a way to hang the curtain up onto the rod. If you don’t, there is nothing to hold the curtain in place and there is no way to determine which way it will hang on the rod. To be extra safe, I recommend either hanging the curtain on a shower rod, or making sure the rod has a curtain rod already attached to it.
However, if you choose to purchase the rod without a curtain already attached, then you should make sure that the rod is big enough for the curtain. If it is too short, it will snag on the curtain and you’ll find that it just falls down. The longer the rod is, the more room you will have to work with, but make sure that the rod is still long enough to go over the curtain!
Next, you need to attach the curtain to the rod. The simplest way is to place the curtain as you would normally, but this time, you want to be sure that the rod is facing in the same direction. Now, you want to use tape to stick the curtain to the rod, creating a slot on the rod for the curtain to be hung from. Now, you will attach the rod to the curtain using some type of fastener or screw, so that you have one piece of the rod that is held onto the curtain.
Once this is done, you will hang the curtain in place using the slot you created earlier. However, you may need to experiment a bit to figure out which way the curtain hangson the rod. So, in order to make sure that the curtain is hanging the right way, you can use the slots in the rod as reference points.
Once the curtain is hanging the way you want it to, you need to pull the curtain up by the edges, this will make the whole thing stand up on its own. One of the benefits of having the rod at the top of the curtain is that you don’t have to take the curtain all the way up, it will just come up that much easier. When you pull the curtain back down, the rod will allow the curtain to fall down in a smooth fashion.
As long as you continue to fix the rod to the curtain at this point, you will be able to adjust the curtain as needed. Also, because of the curved nature of the rod, it should be possible to see a straight edge where the curtain is attached to the rod. You can do this by slowly pulling the curtain back until you are able to see the straight edge.
Finally, you will want to let the curtain stand completely open on the rod, so that the steam from the shower can run down the curtain and into the tub. If you use a curtain rod that is already attached to the rod, make sure that you put the rod through a shower rod hole before placing the curtain rod into place.
In the end, when you hang the curtain you will want to be careful to not allow the curtain to touch the rod as it hangs. The water from the shower should flow freely to the floor.
On the other hand, if you decide to purchase a curtain rod that doesn’t already have a curtain attached to it, you will want to make sure that you fix the rod onto the curtain as close to the rods edges as possible. You can do this by first attaching therod to the rod.
Next, you will want to hang the curtain up and use the guide provided on the curtain itself to make sure that the curtain lines up correctly. If it doesn’t, you can use the curtain as a guide to create a straight line with the rod and fix it directly onto the rod.
These are just a few quick tips on how to hang two shower curtains on one rod. It is very easy to learn how to do if you follow the steps above.
