The easy way to install designer curtains with curved tracks for corner windows.

Welcome to our simple guide to installing your new designer curtains in your corner window using custom 90 degree curved tracks. Your custom kit is super easy to use, so have fun as you click and lock parts together.

Before you get going

Your custom kit:

Because we know how easy it is to lose small parts, you may get a few extras in your kit.

OK it's time to start installing,
let's take it step by step.

Installing your curtains is easy and fun. Follow these 7 steps, then kick back and admire a job well done. Here's how to do it:

1 Get organised

  • 1 A install ceiling corner window curtains A

    Unpack your kit, and gently lay it all out on a clean, hard surface or the cardboard packaging it came in.

  • 1 B install ceiling corner window curtains B

    Lay your track(s) near your corner window to check the width and make note of where it will be installed.

    For 2 or more pieces of track, lay your track joiner(s) on the floor and click an end of two tracks into it, so the ends meet in the middle of the track joiner. Repeat for each joiner until you have joined all your tracks. If the length of a straight edge of your track is over 3 metres you will have 2 or more pieces of track.

    Check how many brackets you need for your track width. Lay out the brackets next to your track and space them 600 mm apart. This is the standard distance between ceiling battens.

    Corner brackets need to be at least 60 mm out from corners. For heavy, blockout curtains it's important to have a bracket near the corner(s) for a 90 degree track.

    For 2 or more pieces of track, you'll also need two brackets on either side of the track joiner(s). Lay out these brackets at least 85 mm apart, as the joiner is 85 mm long.

2 Mark your ceiling battens

  • 2 A install ceiling corner window curtains A

    If you have ceiling battens that run lengthways use your stud finder to find your ceiling battens. Make a pencil mark on each ceiling batten that your curtains will cover, 35 mm out from your walls or out from any window frames or roller blinds that project out. These marks are where the back of your brackets will line up.

    Your brackets will screw into your ceiling battens, and you'll need brackets near both ends and the middle of your track.

  • 2 B install ceiling corner window curtains B

    If you have ceiling battens that run widthways use your stud finder to find the ceiling battens that your curtains will hang from, and make pencil marks along the battens. The back of your brackets needs to be at least 35 mm out from your wall on each side.

    Your brackets will screw into your ceiling battens, and you'll need brackets near both ends and the middle of your track.

    Can't find ceiling battens? Don't stress! Ceiling battens are the best surface to attach curtains to, so call us if you need some help finding your battens. Remember you can use plaster wall anchors if you can't find your ceiling battens.

    Screwing into concrete, stone, brick or tile? You can skip this step completely.

3 Mark your corner bracket(s)

  • 3 A install ceiling corner window curtains A

    Clip your corner bracket(s) onto your track near the track curve(s). Make sure the track is completely straight where you clip on the bracket(s).

    Remember you need a bracket near each 90 degree corner for heavy, blockout curtains.

  • 3 B install ceiling corner window curtains B

    Hold your track up onto your ceiling with the 90 degree curve(s) in your corner(s). Grab a pencil and mark exactly where your corner bracket(s) will attach to your ceiling. This will ideally be onto your ceiling battens.

    If your track wraps around a corner follow the same steps to clip on your corner bracket(s) and mark its position on your ceiling.

    Once you've marked up your corner bracket(s) unclip your bracket(s) so you can screw it onto your wall.

4 Screw in your brackets

  • 4 A install ceiling corner window curtains A

    Position the back of each bracket in line with the pencil marks on your ceiling battens, and mark the screw holes with a pencil.

    For 2 or more pieces of track, don't mark up and screw in your middle brackets either side of the track joiner(s) just yet.

  • 4 B install ceiling corner window curtains B

    Using your protective eyewear and your cordless drill with the 3 mm drill bit, drill each hole. Look for wood shavings as a sign that you're drilling into the ceiling battens.

  • 4 C install ceiling corner window curtains C

    Screw your brackets part way into your ceiling so they're still a bit loose, using your cordless drill with the Phillips head drill bit and the screws in your custom kit.

    Using plaster wall anchors or screwing into concrete, stone, brick or tile? Call or email us for guidance on attaching to different surfaces.

5 Click in your track

  • 5 A install ceiling corner window curtains A

    Pick up your track and lift it into position with the 90 degree curve(s) in your corner(s) and the track lining up to your brackets. Click the track into the middle bracket(s).

  • 5 B install ceiling corner window curtains B

    Tighten the screws in your middle bracket(s) using your cordless drill, to fix the track in place.

    Click your track into the other brackets and tighten the screws, checking as you go that the track is fixed securely in place.

  • 5 C install ceiling corner window curtains C

    For 2 or more pieces of track, lift your joined track into position with the 90 degree curve(s) in your corner(s) and the track lining up to your brackets. Click your joined tracks into all your brackets. Then pick up your middle brackets and place them either side of your track joiner(s). Mark up with a pencil where you'll attach them. This will ideally be onto ceiling battens.

    Unclick your joined tracks and follow step 4 to screw in your middle brackets. Then follow step 5 to click your track back in to all brackets and secure it by tightening the screws.

6 Click in your curtains

  • 6 A install ceiling corner window curtains A

    Check the top of your curtain panels and make sure there's a pendant or hook attached to each press stud.

    Missing a pendant or hook? Simply grab a spare pendant or hook from your custom kit and click it onto the press stud, where the pendant or hook is missing.

  • 6 B install ceiling corner window curtains B

    For S fold curtains, click each pendant into your track, starting at one edge. Take care not to miss any pendants. Make the S shape as you go, by folding the fabric alternately forwards then backwards.

    If you ordered multiple curtain panels start at the left and attach each panel in the correct order (see labels on panels).

  • 6 C install ceiling corner window curtains C

    For pleated curtains, attach each hook into your track. Take care not to miss any hooks.

    If you ordered multiple curtain panels start at the left and attach each panel in the correct order (see labels on panels).
