How to Measure a Window

Measure windows with a steel measuring tape. Measure all windows in the room, even if they appear to be the same size.

Determine rod placement (options):

  • Distance out past window -- 4” each side is a good rule of thumb
  • Distance out past window -- abut against outside edges of window frame
  • Top of window frame -- corner to corner
  • Wall to wall
     

Determine drapery hardware to be used:

  • Determine how far above window to place hardware -- 4” above frame is a good rule of thumb
  • Determine return size needed (the distance that the rod projects from the wall/window frame


Measure for drapery length:

  • Apron length
  • Floor length
  • Ceiling to floor
  • Allow for floor clearance -- floor length draperies should end 1/2” above floor or just short of the carpet
  • Hint: Place a thin piece of cardboard on top of the carpet to help measure evenly.
