Measuring Guide

Choosing the right pole length couldn’t be easier!

Just use the diagram when measuring your window. Measure using your preferred metric, you can use the conversion table below to convert later. If you are unsure of which length of pole to choose, always choose the next size up as the poles can easily be cut down.

Need help choosing the correct width of tape or fabric?

Decide how far over the window edges you want your curtains to extend. Measure from side to side. As a general rule use 2 times this measurement for your width of fabric.

Choosing the correct length of fabric for the drop

Decide where your pole will go and how far below the window you want the curtains to hang. Measure this distance and add about 13″ (8″ for tabs; 5″ for a hem). This is your length.
