How to Hang Curtains With Hooks
Pick the right hook for the weight of your curtain. For lightweight curtains, you can use plastic hooks. Nylon hooks work better if your curtains are medium weight. Metal hooks are needed for heavy curtains.
If you are using pole rings then you need to insert the hook into the top most pocket of the tape. This allows the curtains to hang just below the rings. Start by putting a few hooks into every sixth pocket and hang on the rings. You may need to change this to every seventh or eighth pocket to get the right look.
If you use a rod with a track, then insert the hook into the bottom pocket of the tape. The bottom pocket allows for more curtain at the top which will cover the tracks.
If your curtains are heavy, it is good to start near the middle to hang and work out from both sides. This distributes the weight and makes handling easier. If the weight is still too heavy, you may need one extra person to hold the bottom of the curtain to lessen the weight.
