How to Measure For Curtains
Guide to Window Hardware
Is your window square?
Before deciding on which mount you will use, measure your window to be sure it is square. Measure diagonally from the two top corners to the two bottom corners. If the two measurements are significantly different, the window is not aligned and you should choose the Wall Mount method.
Time to Measure
Once you have chosen the mounting option that works best for your window, it's time to measure your windows to determine hardware length. Keep in mind that if you have chosen the Wall Mount option, you will need to add 15cm to the length of your rods. Also, depending on what style you choose, finials can add up to 10cm on each end of the rod, so you want to make sure there is enough clearance to allow for your finials.
Guide to Curtains
Choose Your Look:
Curtains should always be long enough to reach the windowsill, but how much farther they extend is a personal decision. There are two options for displaying curtains: to the sill (or just below the sill) and to the floor. For deeply recessed windows, you'll want the curtain to be at sill length, or just below. If the width of your mounting measurement is less than 224cm, we recommend at least two curtains. If your measurement exceeds 224cm, additional curtains will be required for total coverage.
Important Safety Tips
Do not place cots within 46cm of curtains, curtain pulls or curtain cords. Keeping cots away from windows is your best option to ensure safety.
