Curtains dividers can create private areas within rooms while adding a touch of drama to the decor. Loft and studio apartment dwellers may want to use a curtain divider to screen off a sleeping, laundry or storage area. Children or teens who share a bedroom could use a curtain divider to create personal space. You can use a sturdy canvas curtain divider on a porch to block an unsightly view and add a vertical style element.
1 Measure the width and length of the area to be divided by the curtain with a tape measure to determine the size curtain rod and fabric yardage you need. The width of the finished curtain will be 1 1/2 times the width of the area. Add 2 inches to each fabric width and length measurement for hems to determine the amount of fabric to purchase.
2 Cut the curtains to the measurements, creating two panels to open in the center or one panel to open at the side. Turn the panel edges 1/2 inch twice to the wrong sides and pin in place. Sew the hems with a straight stitch using a sewing machine.
3 Attach two ceiling mount brackets in the ceiling using 50-pound wall anchors, spaced 2-inches from the ends of the curtain rod position.
4 Attach clip-on shower curtain rings to the tops of the curtain panels every 6 inches, beginning 1/2-inch from the top edge corners. Slide the rings over the curtain rods. Thread the curtain rod through the ceiling mount brackets to attach the rod to the ceiling.
