Curtain rods and tracks

From inspiration to installation

Curtains are an all-time classic when it comes to decorating your windows and controlling the light of your rooms. Hanging curtains correctly can be tricky, but you can attain a polished, perfectly draped look by using our easy to follow tips!

Make sure you get the right measurements.

When measuring, make sure to add 10-20cm on either side of the window to ensure full coverage and give your curtains space for when you open them.

Remember, you can install your bracket from anywhere above your window. Make sure your installation is at the right height to ensure your curtains fall to your desired length.

If you aren’t sure you’re getting the right lengths, our experts are on hand to help you! Arrange for an Imaginerium expert to come to your home, measure up your space and get a quote free of charge!

  1. Measure as discussed and then make marks using your pencil.
  2. Set the bracket against the wall and mark where the screws will go with your pencil.
  3. Drill straight holes into your wall where the pencil marks are – remember to check that you’re using the correct drill bit for brick/concrete or wood. 
  4. Insert the drill plugs into the holes tightly.
  5. Place the bracket over the holes and screw it into place.

Colours are important when defining the look of your space. If you have a mahogany headboard in your bedroom, investing in sleek dark curtain rods will emphasise the dark hue.


Hanging curtains in a rental space can be stressful. Plus, drilling holes into the walls can be a quick way to lose your deposit. That’s why we recommend you use a tension rod to hang your lightweight curtains – they won’t damage the walls when you’re done!

Suitable for weights up to 8kgs, tension rods are both a tool- and fixing-free solution that give the look of a curtain rod within the recess of your windows – which is perfect for quick DIY jobs.
