Curtain Measuring Guide

Measuring Advice

  • Always take your time and measure twice just to make sure
  • The most accurate tool to use is a metal tape measure
  • We would recommend that your track or pole is fixed in place prior to measuring
  • Generally your pole or track should sit 15cm above the window and normally extend 15cm over each side

Taking your width measurements

  • Always measure the track or pole and NOT the window wherever possible.
  • If you are measuring a window that has not previously had curtains then please detail the length the
    track or pole would need to be based on the 15cm overhang detailed above.
  • Track measurement - please take the full track length.
  • Pole measurement - please take the pole length in between the finials (decorative ends)

Calculating the drop of your curtains

  • Track measurement - measure from the top of the track to the position you would like the curtain to finish.
  • Pole measurement using the rings — measure from the bottom of the rings to the position you would like the curtain to finish.
  • Pole measurement for eyelet curtains - measure from the top of the pole to the position you would like the curtain to finish.
