Extra Curtain Track? No Problem!

Extra Curtain Track? No Problem!



Reduce, reuse, and recycle has become more than a slogan – our culture has embraced it as a way of life. We certainly want to do our part to help the planet, and we want to help you do the same by giving you some tips on repurposing leftover curtain track. Some of our tracks can be custom cut to your needs, but many come precut in standard lengths. For example, you may only need ten feet of a twelve-foot track for your project. Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns of these extra curtain track pieces, but you don’t have to toss out the extra two-feet of track. Over the years our customers have come up with lots of creative ways to use these extra bits of track, and we will share some of these with you.



The most popular use for extra curtain track is to install it under a mantel for displaying decorations. It can be used to hang stockings, garlands, banners, etc. People love them for the Holidays and birthday parties, and most of our tracks are small enough to go unnoticed the rest of year. By planning ahead, you can order the drapery hardware you need for the job when you order your track (make sure you order enough carriers for the whole track). Our stainless steel curtain hook is perfect for this application. They can hold stockings, garlands, banners, and most hanging decorations.


Avoid injuries with over the mantel stocking hangers



The next most popular use for extra track moves from the aesthetic to the practical. A wall-mounted track can be used in a home office to display important papers, invitations, and reminders (or kids’ artwork and A+ school papers). For this application we recommend drop chains with a hook and/or bulldog clips. Altogether, these elements create a stylish, unique alternative to a corkboard or message board.
