You may have a metal door in your home that you desire to accessorize with curtains. This presents a challenge if you think about the standard curtain rod. Magnetic rods that adhere to metal can provide you with a solution for hanging lightweight curtains. They are available at most stores that sell housewares or curtain hardware. Magnetic rods come in standard sizes such as those that are usually placed on refrigerators, or the adjustable style. No hardware is required and they are available in various styles to complement your decor.
Things You'll Need
- Magnetic curtain rod
Measure the width of the door or window frame and buy a magnetic rod to fit.
Ensure that the door surface is clean. Rub the area that will receive the magnetic points with steel wool to remove any loose impediments.
Slide your curtain onto the rod, if your curtain rod is the all-in-one style. Place the curtain rod onto the door, adjusting position as needed.
If your rod is a separate part that fits into the end brackets, press the brackets into place. Adjust the rod to the needed length and slide the curtains over it. Place the rod onto the brackets.
