How to measure Ready-Made Curtains
Measure the Width
For Rods/Poles – Use a tape measure to measure between the decorative finials at the end of the poles.
For Tracks – Use a tape measure and measure the entire track
Measure the Length
For Tab Top curtains – Measure from the top of the pole/rod to where you want your curtain to fall.
For Tracks – Measure from the top of the track. Make sure the track will be hidden by the curtain fabric.
Remember to write down the measurements!
Choose the right size for ready-made curtains.
Curtain length depends on the style and look that you want to create. Choose the best drop to suit your measurement. For curtains to the floor, measure 1cm above the floor so that the curtain will not drag. To achieve the best effect at your window, you need the total width of curtains to be approximately one and a half to twice the width of your curtain track or pole. Generally speaking, more fabric is better as your curtains will appear fuller and more luxurious.
For tracks or pole between 50” to 84”choose 108” to 150”width curtain
For tracks or pole between 90”to 120”choose 160” to 200”width curtain
