How To Measure For Curtains

Top Tip: Always use a metal tape for accuracy

Measuring the Curtain Width for all Heading Types

Always measure your track or pole, not your windows.

If you do not have a track or pole already installed then we recommend fitting one that extends by 15cm (minimum) each end of your window and 15cm above your window recess.

Tracks - Measure total width from end to end

Tracks with overlap - Measure each side separately and add both measurements to give your correct width

Pole - Measure width of pole between the finials

Measuring the Curtain Drop:

Firstly decide where you want your curtains to finish, we recommend:

  1. Floor level – allow 1cm clearance above carpet or floor surface
  2. Window sill – 1cm above sill
  3. Below window sill – allow up to 20cm below the window sill or 1cm above

Tracks - For ALL heading types: Measure from the top of the track to the required drop

Poles - For PENCIL PLEAT or PINCH PLEAT headings: Measure from the eye of the ring to the required drop

For EYELET heading: Measure from the top of the pole to the required drop

We will automatically add 2.5cm to the drop of the eyelet curtain which will sit above the pole

How To Measure For Roman Blinds

Top Tip: Always use a metal tape for accuracy

Decide whether you want your roman blind to hang inside or outside of your window, then simply follow these simple steps:

Inside Recess:
  1. Measure the width and height in 3 places, in case the recess is irregular in shape
  2. State the lesser of the dimensions exactly with no deductions, we will make the adjustments to ensure your blind fits perfectly
Outside Recess:

Decide how much you wish to overlap the recess at each side, top, and bottom. State these dimensions

To minimise light leakage we recommend the blind overlaps by:

  1. At least 5cm each side
  2. 8cm from the top of recess
  3. 3cm from the bottom of recess
