Measuring for Curtains - Best Practice

Always measure the curtain track or pole width, never the window. If fitting a new track or pole, this should extend at least 5" (13cm) to 12" (30cm) either side of the window (to allow the curtains to be pulled back away from the glass) and 5" (13cm) aprox above the window recess.

Curtain Track - Measure from end to end

Overlaped Curtain Track

If you have a rail with a centre overlap, measure the rail as above then measure the overlap and add the two measurements together.

Curtain Drop

Curtains are best hung either to the floor, below the sill or to the sill. We recommend that curtains finish either - (see picture)

• A. 0.5" (1.5cm) above the floor • B. below the sill to desierd drop • C. 0.5" (1.5cm) above the sill

measure curtain drop

Always measure in at least 3 positions across the track or pole as floors and sills are rarely level. To avoid curtains dragging across the floor or sill we recommend you use the shortest of these 3 measurements

Pencil pleat and Pinch pleat Headings Drop

When using a curtain track, measure from the top of the track to where the curtain is to finish. When using a curtain pole, measure from the underside of the decorative ring to where you want the curtain to finish.

Eyelet Curtains Drop

The eyelet will fit poles up to 30mm in diameter. The inner edge of the eyelet is set down 1.5" (4.5cm) from the top of the curtain. Measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish and add 1.5" (4.5cm).
