Subsequently, question is, where should curtain rod brackets be placed?

If you have detailed window frames you don't want to cover, an inside mount (hanging curtains within the frame, as you would with a tension rod) can work.

Take one of your 3M Command hooks, take off the paper backing on the adhesive strips, and line the hook up on the wall using the pencil mark for guidance. Press it on the surface well, holding for at least 30 seconds, then let it be for at least a half hour. Repeat the same for the other side. Don't be in a rush.
