Curtain Rods And Brackets

If you’ve chosen beautiful ready-made curtains from Amart, now you need curtain rods and brackets to complete the whole new look! Browse our range to find the perfect adjustable curtain rods, decorative rod ends and double brackets putting the finishing touches on your home improvement project!

What is a curtain rod?

Not such a silly question… a curtain rod is different to a curtain track. Curtain rods are fixed to the window frame or the wall above the window and are used to hang curtains with tabs, rod pockets, eyelets and pleats.

In our curtain accessories range you’ll find decorative curtain rod ends and brackets for fixing the curtain rods to the timber window frame or the wall.

Choosing extendable curtain rods is the simple way to buy curtain rods that will adjust to the width you need.

How to install curtain rods

Installing the modern silver, white or matte black curtain rods available to click and collect from Amart stores is relatively simple. But firstly, you need to decide if you are going to hem your curtains or position the rod at the point from which the ready-made curtain reaches the floor. Assuming the latter, you’ll need:

  1. Tape measure
  2. Pencil
  3. Spirit level
  4. Drill
  5. Curtain rod brackets

When you’re ready to install your curtain rods:

  1. Measure the drop of your curtains from the point at which they will affix to the curtain rod. That might be from the top of the tabs, the line of eyelets or the rod pocket, depending on the curtain design.
  2. Measuring from the floor up, mark the wall in two places with your pencil. Use your spirit level to ensure a straight invisible line between the two marks.
  3. The extendable curtain rod allows you to locate a wall stud along that line to position the rod brackets.
  4. Drill pilot holes before fixing the brackets into place.
  5. Attach the curtain to the curtain rod and place it in the brackets.

You may want to mount your curtain rods to a width that allows the curtains to cover the timber window frame when fully open or past the window frame to allow maximum light and exposure.
