To find the right width for your curtain, first measure the width of your window frame, A.
Next, decide how far you want your curtains to extend beyond the window on each side, B. We recommend 10 inches.
We recommend a fullness of at least 2x. This means if the total area you’re covering is 50 inches wide, your fabric would be 100 inches wide. What fullness do you prefer?
Note: For pleated styles, we recommend adding 10% to your coverage width. Please also select a minimum 2x fullness for 2-pinch pleat and ripplefold and minimum 2.5x for 3-pinch pleat and European pleat.
How many panels would you like to split your curtains into?
To find the right length for your curtain, first measure the distance from the top of your rod to the floor A,
Since materials can stretch slightly over time, we recommend hanging your curtains so they create a small “puddle” (1-2 inches) on the floor to disguise any variance. Enter B below to indicate how long your puddle should be.
If you want to have your curtains end off the floor instead, leave B as 0 and reduce A by ½ - 1 inches.
Note: The inputs above calculate the distance between your rod and where your curtain ends. To get your actual curtain length; if your hanging style is ring top or pleated, we will deduct 1 inch from the above measurements. For grommet and rod pocket, we will add 1 inch. The length you will see in your order confirmation is your final, end-to-end curtain length.
We love our new curtains! The entire experience was exceptional from selection to fitment to the very nice hand written card by Alper; very nice touch!! This new look has really improved our kitchen space and entrance into our newly remodeled backyard. The fabric is just the right color, thickness, and very high quality!
A special thanks to Alex for working with me and taking the time to get the measurement right! The number of pleats is perfect for the width and the drapes fall about a half inch above the floor.
Thanks again! We will certainly refer our family and friends to you!
We had the daunting task of finding curtains to fit a 130"+ windows that weren't hideous and wouldn't break the bank. We searched far and wide and luckily found Mesken! The Mesken team were phenomenal to work with; their customer service can't be beat! The team helped us with samples, when we had trouble making a decision. They checked in frequently to ensure all of our questions were answered. And when we needed help ordering due to the size of the curtains, they were there to offer support and make the process effortless. When our curtains were delayed due to the special order, they expedited shipping to ensure we had our curtains on time. The curtains themselves are great quality, the fabric is beautiful and exactly matched the sample, and the black out option we selected works perfectly. We've had the curtains a few weeks now, and we couldn't be happier. We've already recommended Mesken to family & friends.
I struggled to find new pinch pleat curtains for my bow window, since I did not want to go with two curtains. Mesken offers great quality custom curtains at a very low price. My only regret is that the fabric is a bit heavy for my rod (since it is 30+ years old), and I wished i would have reduced the number of pleats accordingly.
Had roman shades installed throughout my apartment. The service was great and the installer did a great job. I am so impressed by the quality and price (I quoted several other big name window treatment places and was quoted more than DOUBLE what Mesken charged). Will def be recommending to everyone I know!
Got them in the orange/copper color (12) and they look amazing. Added the blackout liner too and it works well in the room which gets direct southern light. The fabric has a nice feel and hangs well. Mesken did a great job answering all of my questions and helping me figure out what to get to hang the drapes on (I used a ceiling mounted track).
Most of us assume man-made fabrics are inferior to natural materials like cotton or linen. In fact, synthetic materials have advanced tremendously in recent years. In terms of look and feel, the synthetic fabrics we offer at Mesken are largely indistinguishable from natural ones.
Polyester and its variants have the advantage of being strong, durable, and resistant to mold and bacteria. There’s no need for dry cleaning and they’re less prone to wrinkling. Plus, they’re generally less expensive than cotton or linen.
Don’t get us wrong — we love our cotton and linen fabrics just as much. But our synthetic fabrics make great curtains that are not only stylish and practical but also more affordable.X
Ripplefold and pleated curtains are made with the following built in fullness:
Ripplefold and 2-Pinch Pleat : 2x
3-pinch pleat and Euro Pleat: 2.5x
For example if the area you want to cover is 50 inches, we first recommend you add 10% to ensure ample coverage (55”). Then use the appropriate fullness above to calculate the fabric needed. If you’ve chosen 2-pinch pleat, 55"x2= 110”. This means we would use 110” of fabric to make a curtain with a finished width of 55”X
