Do your kids share a bedroom and sleep in bunk beds? Do you have a rental property or camp with bunk beds? Have you ever thought about adding curtain tracks to create individual spaces and enhance privacy? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, read on!
Adding curtain tracks and curtains to bunk beds is easy! Here's a step-by-step guide:
- Measure and plan: Start by measuring the height and width of the bunk bed area where you want to install the curtain tracks. Take note of any obstructions like guardrails or other structures that may affect the installation.
- Choose your curtain track: Select curtain tracks that are suitable for your bunk bed. You can find various types of tracks, such as ceiling-mounted tracks or tracks that attach to the bed frame. Consider the weight of the curtains you intend to use and choose tracks that can support them.
- Curtain Track accessories: Once you select your curtain track, don’t forget about the accessories such as end stops, hooks or carriers. You will also need items such as a level, measuring tape, a pencil, and a screwdriver or drill.
- Mark the positions: Use a pencil and measuring tape to mark the positions for the curtain tracks on the bed frame or the ceiling above the bunk bed. Make sure the tracks are evenly spaced and level.
- Install the tracks: If you're attaching them to the bed frame, use screws and anchors to secure them firmly. If you're mounting them on the ceiling, ensure you choose appropriate hardware for a secure installation. The Curtain-Tracks team can answer any questions you have.
- Hang the curtains: Once the tracks are installed, hang the curtains onto the curtain hooks or carriers. Ensure the curtains are long enough to provide adequate privacy and cover the entire bunk bed area. Need help with custom curtains? Our team can make exactly what you need!
