Window treatments don't have to cost a fortune. If you would like to decorate a window in your home with a treatment, the first thing you need to do is measure the dimensions of your window. Measure the height and width of your window.
Did you know that you can purchase premade curtain panels for a designer look? Stores like Kmart, WalMart, and Target sell premade, inexpensive window treatments.
To install, simply hang a curtain rod above your window. Hang your treatment on the rod, and adjust the treatment as needed.
When purchasing premade curtains, make sure you understand if the package contains one window panel or two. Panels are not always sold in sets.
Before you hang the panels, iron them. Most curtains will be creased and will never hang right without first being ironed.
