Curtain Measuring Guide

For images and descriptions of Pencil, Pinch, Box and Eyelet heading styles (click here). 

 

N.B. Ready Made Pencil Pleat Curtains are sold by the Track width the Pair in the pack will cover.

Ready Made Pinch and Box Pleat Curtains are sold by the headed width of both curtains in the pack.

Ready Made Eyelet Curtains are sold by the Flat curtain width when they are a single curtain per pack OR the Rod width they will cover when there is a Pair of curtains in the pack.  

All Custom Made Curtains are sold by entering the actual finished curtain sizes you want (width and height) in centimetres. Fullness will be added at our end. 

Regardless of your chosen heading style you should be sure to add *extra for crossovers and returns (if required). Creepage is an essential add on for Pinch and Box headings to get your total width. (*see below) 

 

How to measure the perfect width and height for your new Curtains

How to measure your curtains

If you have selected your heading style and track/rod you are ready to take measurements.

Pencil, Pinch or Box headed curtains can be hung on either a Curtain Track or a Rod with Rings. Eyelet curtains can only be hung on a Rod. 

Measuring for a Curtain Track; 

Width is from end to end of the track + *extras if required.

*Make sure you allow extra width if you have overlap arms in the middle or if you want to wrap the curtains around the ends of the tracks onto the brackets. These are called returns.

*For Pinch or Box pleats you must also add 5% to your width to allow for creepage when hung. 

Height is from the top of the track to your desired length. Please add 1 cm or more if your track is Face mounted and you want your curtain to sit higher than the track.

 

Measuring for Rod & Ring sets and Rod only (for Eyelets); 

Width is from end to end of the rod (not any decorative ends) + *extras if required.

*For Pinch or Box headings you must add 5% to the width to allow for creepage when hung.

Height is measured from under the large ring to the desired finished length just off the floor. 

For Eyelets on rods (only) the width is as above but there will be no extras.

Height will be measured from top of rod to desired finished length. +**Add 3cms as the top of the curtain will sit higher than the rod.

Some further information on how to measure Curtains

If using the guides below don't forget to add a further 5% for Creepage on all Pinch and Box Pleat Curtains.
