Measure The Curtain Width
Measure your window width. Ideally your track will be ceiling fitted or 15cm/20cm above your window, and the curtain track should be 15cm/20cm wider than the window width each side.
For curtain poles, measure the pole length excluding the finials.
Get The Right Amount Of Curtain Fabric Fullness
Depending on how ‘full’ or luxurious you want your curtains will depend on the amount of fabric used. We like to use a 2.3 – 2.5 x ratio for pinch pleat and a 2 – 2.3 x ratio for pencil pleat or eyelet curtains. To get this amount, simply multiply your curtain track or pole width and x by the desired ratio.
Decide On The Curtain Length
At Made Curtains we like the curtain fabric to sit slightly on the floor, but the finished drop is entirely up to your preference.
