Drapery panels are one of the most beautiful touches you can add to your overall decor. Drapery panels create the illusion of a larger window opening and a finished touch to your windows. Grommet Drapery Panels are easy to install, in this short video you will see just how simple it is.

Determine where your draperies will hang by aligning a steel measuring tape vertically in the center of your window. Lower the tape down to a point where you would like the bottom of your drapery fabric to rest, and then extend your tape above the center of your window to the full length of your panel and mark lightly with a pencil. From this mark, measure out to each side a distance equal to half of your rod length. Subtract 6" for brackets and finials and place a small mark at the top of your tape. Align the top of your bracket on your pencil mark, and then make two guide marks through the bracket holes with a pencil. Plastic wall anchors are included for attaching your mounting hardware. Drill a hole on each mark to insert your anchor screws and then gently tap your anchor screws into the holes until they are flush with the wall surface. Metal brackets come in two sections, an L-shaped section that is used to mount the bracket to the wall, and a second section that is used to hold the drapery rod. Begin by securing the short end of the L-shaped extension bracket to the wall with two screws. Place the metal bubble located on the bottom of the rod holder section into the groove on top of the L-shaped extension bracket. Slide the rod holder section backward or forward along the groove to position the rod at the desired distance from the wall and tighten the sections together with the adjustment screw. Next, place your finial at the end of the rod. Secure your finial to the rod by turning your adjustment screw clockwise. Slide your drapery panels on to the rod.

Finish by securing the second finial. Lift up your completed drapery rod and carefully set it on your brackets. Secure the rod to your bracket by tightening the adjustment screws. Repeat on the right and then fan out the material on the pole to the inside edges of your brackets. And that's it, if you still have any questions just give us a call, it's that easy.
