How do you hang curtains with hooks on the wall?
A pro-tip is to give the hooks time to really adhere to the wall (wait at least one hour) before hanging anything on them. And the beauty of using a sticky hook instead of drilling holes in the wall is that if you decide the curtains look too low or too high, you can move the rod and hooks without any damage.
How long should curtains be above a window?
Each curtain panel should be at least as wide as your window. Measure from the spot you plan to hang the rod (usually four to six inches above the window, but a minimum of two inches) to the floor to figure out the length of the curtains.
