CURTAIN MEASURING GUIDE

Select which type of measurements you require then follow the directions to measure the width and length of your curtains:

To measure for the width and length of your curtains please use the diagrams and tips below.

1A - CURTAIN TRACK

WIDTH: Measure from one end of the track to the other.
LENGTH: Measure the length from the top of the track to the point where you want your curtains to finish.

1B - CURTAIN POLE WITH RINGS

WIDTH: Measure the length of the pole visible between the 2 finials (pole ends).
LENGTH: Measure from the bottom of the ring. This will ensure that the pole remains visible once the curtains are hung.


Use this simple guide to help you decide on the finish drop of your curtains.

IF YOU ARE HAVING TAB-TOP CURTAINS:

You will need to measure from the very top of your pole to ensure the correct drop.

IF YOU ARE HAVING EYELET CURTAINS:

You will need to measure from the top of your pole. Please add 3cm to your measurements. Your curtains are made slightly longer as eyelet curtains are intended to sit above the pole.
Eyelets are suitable for poles up to a maximum diameter of 28mm

 


First of all you must choose whether to have your blind fitted either inside or on the outside of the recess.
Please check the width at both the top and bottom of the window, as they might be different.

INSIDE THE RECESS

Order the smallest recess width size to ensure the blind does not catch when fully extended.
Please deduct 1cm from your inside recess measurement to ensure the blind fits comfortably.

OUTSIDE THE RECESS

Please add 10cm to the largest recess width measurement. This ensures the window is covered by the blind and minimises the amount of light that filters into the room.
All blinds are supplied with a light coloured wooden acorn.

 



Measure the length of the valance track and the length of both returns. We need the total of all these measurements.

 



Measure the length of the track and the length of both returns. If the curtain is to sit behind the pelmet board we would recommend that the curtain is hung below the track. The curtain length measurement is taken from the eye drop of the curtain track runner.

  • The pole or track must be fitted to the wall before taking any measurements
  • It is also best to use a metal tape measure as fabric ones sometimes stretch
  • All measurements must be given to the nearest whole centimetre
  • All measurements and selections must be double checked prior to placing the order.
