How to hang curtains from top rail?

Hi, if I hang curtains from top rail they stay off the wall – should I put a retaining rod across at the bottom of the comb? It’s a bedroom. Any ideas? Thanks

How to hang curtains from top rail?

Hi Sandra

You are absolutely right you need to hold the curtain back into the bend.

I think the most pleasing way to do this is to use 2 matching curtain poles. The top one fixed over the window. Hang the curtains from the rings as usual.

Then the second pole take off the rings and fix to the flat wall as high as possible. Then dress your curtains behind this pole.

I have done this a few times and if you dress the curtains neatly behind the second pole it will give a really nice look to an awkward window.

Best Regards
