Where do you put curtain holdbacks? Curtain hold backs can be positioned however you like – as with all aspects of interior design it is subjective. However, a general rule of thumb with both tie backs and hold backs is to position the hold back a third of the way up from the bottom of the curtain.
How does a curtain holdback work? A curtain holdback is a u-shaped piece of hardware that attaches to a wall near a window frame. Pulling a curtain behind a holdback holds the curtain open. Curtain holdbacks are usually made of rigid materials like metal, iron or wood.
How do you use curtain tie backs? Gather the curtain loosely and wrap the loop-end of the tieback around it one way and the tassel-end around it the other way. Slip the tieback loop over the tassel, arranging it to rest just at the top of the tassel. Adjust the curtain and the tassel and do the same for the other curtain.
How far down do you put curtain holdbacks? To achieve proper placement, again measure the length of the curtains and divide by three. Hang each tieback a third of the way up from the bottom of the curtain. If, for example, the drape is 100 inches long, you would place the tieback 33 inches from the bottom.
