Curtain Measurement Guide

Measuring Width

1. Measure inside width of the window frame, .

2. Decide how much coverage you want to add on each side, . We recommend 5-10 inches.

3. Decide what fullness you'd like. Fullness is the ratio of fabric to the space you're covering. For example, if you have a 50" wide window and you want 2x fullness, we'd use 100" of fabric.

Example

  • Let’s say your window is 50" wide and you want to add another 5" on each side. Your total width is 50+5+5=60"
  • Let’s say you want 2x fullness. Total curtain width would be 60x2=120". This could be one 120" curtain or 2 curtains each 60" wide, etc.

  • Pro tip: When you're ordering your curtain and you get to the width section, you can use the "measurement guide" option and we'll do all these calculations for you!

Measuring Length

1. Measure the distance from the top of the rod or track to the floor, . If you're hanging your curtains on the ceiling, measure from the ceiling.

2. Decide the length of puddle you'd like, . If you'd rather have your curtains not touching the floor, record as a negative number.

3. Your final curtain length depends on the style: For ring top or pinch pleat, the curtains will hang below the rod so we subtract 1" to find the curtain length. For grommet and rod pocket, we add 1".

Example

  • Let’s say your rod to floor measurement is 100" and you want to have a 2" puddle. 100+2=102"
  • If you're getting ring top or pleated curtains, your actual curtain length will be 102-1=101" For grommet and rod pocket, it would be 103".

  • Pro tip: When you're ordering your curtain and you get to the length section, you can use the "measurement guide" option and we'll do the necessary adjustment based on your style selection!
