Ways to Hang Curtains Without Drilling Holes in the Walls

1. Hang Curtains with Tension Rods

Tension curtain rods are one of the easiest and most common ways to hang curtains without drilling holes. Much like shower curtain rods, they expand to whatever length you need and stick between two walls or the recess of a windowpane.

Regular tension curtain rods allow you to expand one end. These rods are great for use anywhere in the house, especially in rooms with tiled walls or drywall. Their main drawback is that they are unstable compared to traditionally installed curtain rods. Further, you can pull them out of place, or they can even fall. You will also need to consider the sturdiness and thickness of your tension rods when you pick out a curtain fabric.

2. No Drill Stick-on Curtain Rods 

Stick-on curtain rods give you the joy of not damaging them while also looking beautiful. They look like they are hung the traditional way. The great part about this no-drill curtain rod is that you can fix it as high as you want and go longer than the window frame.

3. Magnetic Curtain Rods for Metal Surface

You can use a magnetic curtain rod if you have metal in your door or window frames.  These rods will stick firmly to the metallic surface. You can use them just like regular curtain rods. You can pull them off the frame when you want to take them down.

4. Hang Twist-and-Fit Curtain Rods on Window Frame 

Twist-and-fit curtain rods are another great choice if you want to hang curtains without drilling walls. They are very similar to tension rods, with only two differences. First, they come with decorative ends that stick out from the window frame. Second, you can mount a curtain rod on them, allowing your curtains to cover the window rather than sitting inside the frame.

5. Buy a Temporary Command Hooks Curtain Rods

Command hooks are for those who don’t want to drill holes in their walls to hang curtains. Like stick-on curtain rods, you can mount them on walls and window frames with adhesive. The only difference is that the hooks are sticky, not the rod itself.

The hooks are stuck onto the wall or frame, and the rod is mounted. You will need to secure the rod to the hooks with string or something else so that the rod doesn’t slip or pop off when you draw and shut the curtains or drapes frequently.

On a concluding note, now that you know you can hang curtains without drilling holes, you can have a carefree home decor experience. We hope this article has been helpful to you.
