Measuring Guide For Curtains

  1. All measurements should be provided in cm (unless the website gives you the option to provide the measurement in mm or inches).
  2. All our curtain are made with a 3mm manufacturing tolerance (width & drop).
  3. Always use a metal rule when taking the measurements.

Measuring The Width

When measuring the width of curtains we always recommend you measure the curtain pole or track width not the existing curtains.

When measuring a pole, measure the length of the pole between the finials (decorative ends). When measuring a track and the track has an overlap in the centre, measure the length of the track and add the length of the overlap to this measurement to give you an overall length.

Measuring The Drop

The length of your curtains will depend on your preference. Typical length measurements are as follows.

  1. Full length which is approximately 1.5cm to 3cm above floor level.
  2. Above radiator which is typically 1cm to 3cm above the radiator.
  3. Below the window sill which is typically around 15cm below the sill.

Measure from the top of the track or bottom of the curtain rings for a curtain pole to the desired length of your curtains.

When ordering tab top or eyelet curtains, the measurement for the drop should be from the very top of the pole.
