Measure the width of your existing track or pole. Do not include finials in you measurement just the track or pole.
Glider or standard tracks:
For overlapping tracks please measure both pieces of track and add the 2 lengths together.
For curtain poles please measure the pole width but not including finials.
Measuring the drop:
Drop (Pencil and Pinch Pleat with curtain track or curtain pole)
Measure the distance from the bottom of the ring the track gliders or runners or rings ( this will be the ring to into which the curtain hooks will be placed.) to 1cm above the floor(2/3cms if you have not yet had your carpet fitted but intend to). Or measure to the desired length e.g just below the sill or just above the radiator.
Drop Eyelet Curtains.
Measure to distance from the top surface of your curtain pole to 1cm above the floor(2/3cms if you have not yet had your carpet fitted but intend to). Or measure to the desired length e.g just below the sill or just above the radiator.
Now you have a measurement for the width and drop of your new curtains simply choose which fabric you want and enter the measurements into the relevant boxes. Our site will generate a price, should you wish to continue simply add to cart. Don’t forget to add any extras you want e.g eyelets or blackout lining.
Always use a steel tape measure, fabrics tapes can stretch. It may seem obvious but if you are replacing existing curtains that are the desired size just measure them and input these sizes into the site.
If you require 2 pairs of curtains of different drops for the same room and it is important that they are pattern matched please let us know if you would like them to match from the top or Bottom.
