Guide to Measuring for Curtains

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin, gather the following supplies:

  • Measuring tape
  • Pen or pencil
  • Paper
  • Calculator

Step 2: Determine Curtain Track or Window Frame Width

If you have your own curtain track, measure the width of it. (A)

If you don’t have your own curtain track, measure the width of your window frame. (B)

If you’re unsure about the type of track, bring in a glider, end stop, or draw the profile of the end of the track. Take note if the track is screwed to the top of a pelmet or screwed on the frame or wall.


Step 3: Consider Curtain Stack Back

Measure from the edge of your window frame along the wall to see how much stacking space you have on each side of your window frame.

Step 4: Calculate the Required Curtain Width

Based on the measurements from steps 2 and 3, calculate the required width for your curtains. Ensure to account for any overlap or desired fullness.


Step 5: Measure Curtain Length

Determine the desired length of your curtains. Measure from the top of the curtain track or from where you plan to hang the curtain rod to the desired length, whether it’s just below the window sill, to the floor, or even pooling on the floor for a dramatic effect.

Step 6: Order Your Curtains

Once you have all measurements, it’s time to order your curtains. Consider the style, fabric, and any additional features you desire, such as blackout lining or tie-backs.


Step 7: Double-Check Your Measurements

Before finalising your order, double-check all measurements to ensure accuracy. It’s crucial to avoid ordering curtains that are too short or too long for your space.

By following these steps, you can confidently measure for curtains and achieve a perfect fit for your windows. If you have any questions or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to our helpful team. Happy decorating!
