It is a good laser, but it is self leveling so you will have trouble setting it on the floor and be able to title it. It will probably go into error mode and the laser will flash telling you that it isn't level.

Suggest a step ladder that is about the right height.

Which Is Better - Curtain Spring Rod or Curtain Spring Wire?

Both are very good alternatives to conventional solutions of hanging curtains, however, both have their share of pros and cons. As far as curtain spring rods are concerned, they can be an absolute bliss in terms of installation, a process that can take no more than 10 seconds. You will also not have to drill any holes through the walls which can be a blessing.

Extendable curtain rods are in very high demand because of their flexibility in terms of area of installation be it shower stalls kitchen windows or any others for that matter. On the flipside, general models will not be able to hold heavy curtains for which you will have to look for conventional solutions.

On the other hand, curtain spring wires / stretch wires are literally unchallenged in terms of neatness and strength. The only thing that can come in the way though, is the installation process which can be a little demanding especially for those that are not experienced in the matter.

How can I use a curtain to work as a room divider? I want to make a space for my art area that is separate to the lounge.

You can attach a curtain rail to the ceiling and hang a curtain, which doesn't have to be heavy or a dark color. Sometimes even the physical act of a curtain is enough to divide a space without taking any of the natural light away from the room.

How to hanging curtain hardware

The most important thing with fitting hardware is to find the studs in the wall for brick veneer or in the case of solid brick, you must ensure the wall plug goes deeper than the wall plaster. The wall plug needs a hole drilled for a good fit- not loose or the plug will rotate as you tighten the screw.

Side openning - you can adjust the curtain postion after installation by lifting the cord from its clip on the carriage and moving the carrier along to the correct position.
On one of the carrier slides there needs to be an overlap for the little carry bar for the curtain hooks so you do not get a gap when the curtain is shut.
When designing curtains there should be at least 2.5 drops ( window cobverage) for a good looking curtain.
To prevent heat loss thermo syphoning up the window, you should close in the pelmet on the top. Just 3 ply will do this fine.
For one side pull, you need to screw the cord pulley end to the floor or skirtin via the spring provided and set the length of cord by shortening at one of the carriage slides.
I may be rambling here, but a simple stud finder is really handy to find the studs (vertical timbers) It also shows power cables but they will not be as wide. Any photos of your house under construction is good to show where the timbers and power cables are.
It is a good idea not to hit the power cables - tends to burn things - like houses.
Anyway if you describe waht sort of fittings you have you may get more useful info.
