Notes on Measuring your Curtains
The first step is to decide whether you want your curtains to hang from a track or pole, both of which should ideally be positioned 15cm above the window and extend at least 15-20cm either side and up to 30cm to enable the curtains to be drawn well back. This applies to plastic and metal tracks, as well as poles. We strongly advise that you fit the track or pole before taking measurements otherwise we wont be able to quote.
CURTAIN WIDTH: Measure the curtain track or pole width and not the window.
- For a pole: measure between the finials
- For a single track: measure the full width
- For an overlapping corded track: measure each side of the tracks and add together
CURTAIN DROP: The drop is the length from the top to the bottom of the curtain. The drop will depend on where the base of the curtain is to finish and the chosen heading style.
Measure the correct point to:
- 1cm above the sill for sill length
- The desired length for below sill length (usually 15cm below) or just above any radiator
- 1cm above the floor for full length. If the floor is uneven add 1-2cm to disquise this
Measuring the curtain drop
Measure the drop from the small metal ring (eye) at the bottom of each curtain ring (see diagram). This will prevent the pole or rings from being obscured by the curtain.
Measure the drop from the top of the track so that the curtain hides the track
Measure the drop from the very top of the pole. Advise the pole diameter so the correct eyelets are used. Please note that we will add 3-4cm allowance above the eyelets.
Please measure very carefully in Centimetres as accurately as possible and double check your results as we are unable to accept responsibility or refund for curtains that are incorrect due to inaccurate measurements received.
