Tailored Pleat Drapery — Herringbone, Toast / Roller Shade — Nate Berkus Raffi Blackout, Onyx

If you’re renting an apartment, the last thing you want to do is make changes that will require extra time and money to repair if/when it’s ever time for you to move out. Luckily, The Shade Store has beautiful window treatment options that require little to no alterations to your living space. In this blog post, we’ll go over how to hang curtains in an apartment.

When in Doubt About Hanging Curtains in an Apartment, Keep It Simple

Pinch Pleat Drapery — Manor, Desert / Roller Shade — Bond, Black

Hanging curtains in an apartment is effortless if you have existing hardware — and if you don’t, we offer a variety of premium hardware, or you can find great options at most home furnishing stores.

The best way to hang curtains in an apartment is with Rods & Rings hardware, which is simply a rod that attaches to the wall or window frame at a few points. Because the drapery isn’t connected to a specially measured and installed track system, these hardware options allow you to simply take down your curtains if the time comes to move out and hang them back up again at your next apartment!

The types of window treatments that work perfectly with Rods & Rings hardware are:
