Installation Tips

It's easy to create an elegant, custom look!

Installing Door Panels & Sidelights

Door and sidelight panels are held in place by two rods, one at the top and one at the bottom of each panel. Begin the process of hanging your panels by installing the top rod.

  1. Slip the top rod through the top rod pocket of the panel and hang the panel in place.
  2. Slip the bottom rod through the bottom rod pocket, and with the panel hanging straight, mark the location of the bottom brackets. The bottom brackets and rod should be positioned to hold the panel in place without excess tension.
  3. Install the bottom brackets and attach the bottom rod to the brackets with the panel mounted on the bottom rod.
  4. For an hourglass effect, slip a tieback around the center of the panel and overlap the Velcro ends to secure them.
  5. That's all there is to it!

Hanging and Adjusting Balloon Curtains

The balloon curtain is designed to be easily adjustable, up and down, to achieve a pleasing look. It is not, however, designed to be adjusted frequently like a shade.

Here are some hints on how to use this curtain. 

  1. Find the small plastic bag, packed with your order, that contains the plastic split rings. These will be used to adjust the length of your balloon curtain.
  2. Lay your balloon, face down, on a table or the floor, and notice the horizontal rows of rings sewn in the back of the curtain.
  3. Slip one of the split rings onto each of the attached rings along the bottom row of rings.
  4. Using the split rings now attached to the bottom row of rings, slip each split ring onto the next ring above.Repeat this process, moving up one ring at a time, until your curtain reaches the desired length.
  5. Gather your curtain onto your rod, mount the rod on the brackets, and then arrange the curtain evenly, side to side.
  6. Puff out each section of your balloon curtain from behind to achieve desired look.
