How to measure for Curtains & Blinds



We recommend that you put up your pole before taking your measurements.

Width: Measure the pole not the window itself. Measure the width between the decorative finials.

Length:
Sill Length - Measure from the bottom loop of the curtain to 1cm above the sill. 
Below Sill Length - Measure from the bottom loop of the curtain ring to the desired length.
Full Length - Measure from the bottom loop of the curtain ring to 1cm above the floor.

In all cases we will add 3cm above the loop to your measurement to allow for the curtain heading.

Outside a Window Recess


Length: When using a pole, measure from the bottom loop of the curtain ring to the required length. When using a batten, measure from the top edge of the batten to the required length.

Width: When using a pole please measure from the outside edge of each bracket once they have been fixed in place. When using a batten add approximately 14cm to the width of your window to allow sufficient overlap.

Inside a Window Recess


We recommend that a batten is used for blinds hung inside a window recess. The blind will be supplied with a self-adhesive Velcro heading and screw eyes (and the batten).

Length: Measure the length from the top to the bottom of the recess.

Width: Measure the width at the top of the window recess, in the middle and at the bottom. Record the smallest measurement of the three to ensure the blind does not snag when being lowered.
