- Size Calculations: (Refer to the Diagrams tab for complete instructions on How to Measure a Window.) For continental or lock seam rods, add a total of 7” to the width to allow for the sides of the curtain rod (3-1/2” each side). For a decorative pole with finials, measure the width of the rod between the brackets, and do not include 7” for the sides. For all curtain rod types, add up to an additional 10” to allow for poufing.
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.
