Made to Measure
Curtains Measuring Guide
Simple steps to help you achieve a perfect fit:
We suggest you grab a pen, note pad and metal measuring tape.
To ensure a more accurate measurement, we recommend the track or pole is fit prior to measuring.
As a guide when fitting your track or pole, allow for a 15-20cm gap above the window and extend 15-20cm either side.
When measuring the length of a pole or track do not include the finials.
We advise that you log the width first and then the drop.

Ensure you measure the full width of the track, end to end. We recommend that you add 3cm to the measurement to allow for an overlap when the curtains are closed. To achieve your desired drop, measure from the top of the track, this will ensure the track is covered when curtains are hung.
Ensure you measure the full width of the pole, excluding finials.
To achieve your desired drop, measure from the top of the eye of ring to achieve your desired drop.
