Aside from obviously protecting your privacy, curtains can actually serve as a stylish focal point in any room, while requiring minimal care and maintenance. But even the most expensive curtains can look wrinkled or sloppy, which is why TikTok users everywhere are thanking the drapery gods for this one user’s incredible hack for <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="making%20budget%20curtains%20look%20more%20expensive%E2%80%94and%20it%20involves%20items%20you%20probably%20have%20around%20the%20house%20already.</p>%0A%0A%0A%0A<p><strong>Related:%20<a%20href=" https: target="_blank">The Ridiculously Easy Curtain Hack That Can Save You Hundreds of Dollars

TikTok user @hammsmom (Shayla) recently shared a “free and simple hack to make your curtains look more expensive,” and it’s so easy, you have to see it to believe it. By using recycled toilet paper or paper towel cardboard rolls—or wrapping paper cardboard rolls cut up into three-inch rolls—you rethread your curtain on its rod, inserting a cardboard roll behind every other notch. You then put the curtains back up, smoothing out any wrinkles, and voilà! Now, your curtains look elegant and free of wrinkles—no matter the length, style, fabric, or design.

As Shayla points out in the clip, the hack costs zero dollars (especially since you probably have recycled cardboard rolls lying around the house already) and makes your curtains look full and gorgeous in a matter of minutes.

Of course, commenters flooded Shayla’s post to marvel over how easy and convenient her curtain hack is. Gone are the days of curtains that look squished together, unevenly spaced, or wrinkled in spots—while we can’t say the same for your nosy neighbors, at least you can have peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to sacrifice style for a little bit of privacy.
