Eyelet curtains are an elegant and practical window treatment option that can transform the look of any room. Installing eyelet curtains may seem daunting at first, but with the right tools and guidance, it can be a straightforward process. Following are the steps for installing eyelet curtains and the benefits of this type of window treatment.


Before you can install eyelet curtains, you need to measure the window to determine the size of the curtains you will need. Start by measuring the width of the window frame, and then add 10-15cm to each side to ensure the curtains cover the entire window when drawn. Next, measure the length of the window from the top of the frame to the floor, and again add 10-15cm to allow for the curtains to hang properly.

       Choosing the Right Curtain Rod

Once you have measured the window, you will need to choose a curtain rod that is the right length and style for your curtains. Eyelet curtains require a rod with a diameter of at least 28mm to allow the curtains to slide smoothly. You can choose from a range of materials and styles, including wood, metal, and plastic, depending on your preference and budget.

       Installing the Curtain Rod

To install the curtain rod, start by marking where you want to place the brackets on the wall. Use a spirit level to ensure the brackets are level and even. Then, drill pilot holes into the wall and screw the brackets into place. Finally, slide the curtain rod into the brackets.

       Hanging the Curtains

Once the curtain rod is securely in place, it’s time to hang the curtains. Start by placing the first curtain panel onto the rod, making sure the eyelets are evenly spaced. Then, thread the second panel onto the rod, followed by any additional panels. Once all the panels are on the rod, adjust the spacing and position of the curtains to ensure they hang evenly and look great.

Benefits of Eyelet Curtains

Now that you know how to install eyelet curtains let’s discuss some of the benefits of this type of window treatment.

       Stylish and Versatile

Eyelet curtains come in a wide range of styles, colors, and patterns, making them a versatile choice for any room. Whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look, you are sure to find eyelet curtains that suit your style.

       Easy to Operate

Unlike some other types of window treatments, such as blinds or shades, eyelet curtains are easy to operate. Simply pull the curtains to one side or the other to open or close them, making them a great option for anyone who wants a fuss-free window treatment.


Eyelet curtains can also help to improve the energy efficiency of your home. By blocking out drafts and keeping the heat inside during the winter, and blocking out sunlight during the summer, eyelet curtains can help to reduce your energy bills and make your home more comfortable.
