Traditionally located in hospital rooms and offices spaces, privacy drapes meld with your current decor when you swap out the standard vinyl-and-mesh products with ornamental curtain panels and trade the industrial-like monitor having a ceiling-mounted curtain rod. Contrary to a room divider, privacy panels are intended to partially or completely enclose some of a room; true, detailed measurements before you begin drilling and installing mounts ensures that each pole is straight and also connects with perpendicular rods.
Mark the beginning and end point of each curtain pole on the ceiling. For the best results, use the space between the initial mark and the parallel wall to pinpoint the precise location for the stopping point of the exact same rod. As an instance, mark the ceiling in which you want the privacy curtain to start. Measure from this point to the wall opposite the mark. Proceed to where you want this first constant line to end and step from precisely the exact same wall out this space and mark the ceiling.
Hold a chalk line against the starting and stopping point of the initial pole. Snap the line. Repeat this procedure using the rest of the marks, until you’ve got an overview of the pole configuration on the ceiling.
Mark the wall or ceiling indicating the installation point of each bracket. At turns, the bracket installs right on the flip or a couple of inches away. As an instance, you’ll have two mounts per corner, each 3 to 4 inches away from the intersection of the two lines, or a single bracket right on the intersecting lines. Mark the spots to the center support brackets too, spacing them every 36 to 48 inches.
Mark the pilot holes along the settings with the brackets as a template. In some cases, the end mounts may have a different spacing between the screw holes than the support mounts. Always utilize the bracket which will be set up at that point as the guideline.
Drill pilot holes into the ceiling. Install toggle-style hollow wall anchors into each hole which does not enter a joist. Secure the brackets to the ceiling using the supplied hardware. In some cases, you may have to install the base bracket initially and then slide a pole to hold the rod over it, securing it in place with a small screw.
Measure the distance of each straight line and adjust the straight rods to these measurements. Combine the first straight pole into the initial curved connector, then slide the panels onto the pole, and place it on the bracket. Twist the next straight rod to the opposite end of the curved connector, slide on the panels, and continue the procedure until the poles are in place. Adjust the lengths of the poles as needed so that they match perfectly on the mounts.
Drive screws through each bracket, when relevant, to secure the poles set up.
