Originally I though this would be an easy process, however where I used to live all the houses are pure concrete, therefore something like this used to be relatively simple. My question is how can I attach a rod to a drywall?. I realize this questions might sound really ignorant, but please bear with me, I've never done anything with a drywall, I am currently living in the U.S., and my house like pretty much every other house here has drywalls.
It seems to me that if I just do it in the Drywall it will surely fall down, as it is not strong enough, my intuition tells me that behind the drywall there has to be some wood frame where presumably people attach the rods?. I do not have blue prints for my house, what would be a good way to know where I should install this rod?.
As a note the previous owner had curtain rods installed, but he removed them. So it is clear to me that this is possible, I just have no idea how.
This is a 2000 house that I just bought if that is relevant. Wood frame, brick veneer on the outside and drywall on the inside.
Any help, or perhaps good tutorials on how to do this, or what I need to buy would be really appreciated.
