Adding ceiling curtain rails

Hi
I'm looking to add a privacy curtain for the front bed if my apex nano 208bhs. I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or recommendations when mounting the brackets (likely 12) into the ceiling to hold the curtain rails. Just want to make sure it's ok to drill. I plan to use 1 1/2" screws. Thanks in advance.

A couple of other mods I already did are:

I also added a custom cutting board to fit over the sink as this model never came with one. I bought two magic chef bamboo cutting boards.

I added a bunk ladder of which I had to trim about 3inches or so. And then finally made a bed rail made if simple pine shelving so my tod doesnt fall off the bed.

Do you have metal framing or wood? I would not go over 1 inch on those screws. there should be a "RAFTER" right above that wall. Probably wider than the wall itself. Try a screw out of the way, along the wall to see if its good. Also theres wires in the ceiling so be aware, but they should be at least the with of the rafter off the ceiling material which is probably less than a 1/4 " thick.

It's a 208bhs so I believe its aluminum frame. Will have to try one out! I think the 1inch screws are a good idea...I will likely have to put about two dozens in to hold the curtain rails.

How about a tension curtain rod that's adjustable?

We've used them at home with double sided mounting tape to add strength and stability to the rods. No screws needed.

Use the tension rod. A lot easier and safer.
