How to Hang Curtains Without Making Holes in the Wall

Do you live in a dorm room or apartment where you are not allowed to make holes in the wall? Are your parents strict about messing with the paint job in your bedroom? Not to worry: if you want to hang curtains, you can do so without any tools. No holes, no nails, no screws, no hammers!

This is what it will look like:

This is a great way to add privacy and personality to your room or apartment without losing your security deposit.

You Will Need:

  • 2 or 3 large plastic adhesive hooks, depending on how wide your window is. They should be rated 5 lb. or higher; Nikki used a three-pack of large Command Brand hooks.
  • Curtain rod just over the width of your window space. Make sure it's thin and lightweight, and that it fits snugly inside the hook.
  • Curtains of your choice. Make sure their weight, combined with the rod, doesn't exceed the rating of the hooks you get.

How to Hang Them:

It's really simple. Just take off the paper backing on the adhesive strips for the hooks, then press and hold the hooks in place where you want them. Make sure to plan and measure things out before doing this. Hold in place for a few minutes, then let them set for an hour or so before hanging your rod and curtains. If you have a long window, you will probably need the third hook in the middle to prevent any drooping.
