How do you hang curtains on a sidelight? Sidelight curtains typically attach to rods at the top and bottom of the window. You can start your screw rod installation by screwing the rod brackets into the wall or wood using an electric drill, beginning with the top brackets. Make sure you buy long enough curtains to hang from the top and attach to the bottom.
Are sidelight curtains out of style? One of the key features of these homes is a front door with sidelight windows – the tall, thin, fixed windows on either side of an entrway door. This architectural feature will never go out of style. Homes have been featuring sidelight windows for decades and new homes are still being designed with them.
Where should side panel curtains be placed? A rule of thumb (from Architectural Digest) is that curtains should be hung between four to six inches above the window frame, so install your curtain rod accordingly. When you hang the curtain rod high, it will make the window appear taller.
How do you hang curtains at the front of a door? Mount a standard curtain rod over an entry door that opens outward and has a sidelight window on one or both sides. Extend the rod’s hardware evenly about 1 foot past the entryway and windows. Hang two fabric panels on the rod. Push one curtain to each side when opening the door or to expose the doorway set.
