Today I would like to talk a bit about how to measure for curtains. Sometimes it can be unclear as to the best way to measure for your new curtains as you would like to be certain that they are going to be the correct size, both in length and width. If you follow these tips, then you should get the perfect curtains for your window.
A common mistake when measuring for curtains is that some people tend to measure the window opening. So here is how to avoid mistakes when ordering your new curtains.
Measuring The Width For Your Curtains
When measuring the width of your curtains and you already have the pole in place, measure from end to end of the pole, left to right. As you need to account for the overlap at the edges of the window.
Measuring The Length For Your Curtains
When measuring the length of your curtains and you already have the pole in place, measure from the top of the pole to the floor. Or if you are going for shorter curtains, measure from the top of the pole to where you would like your curtains to finish.
Depending on the curtain heading, some people choose to have their curtains hanging from the bottom of the curtain rings. If this is the case, measure from there downwards.
