We ask in the first instance that you provide us with measurements for costing purposes. Do not worry about 100% accuracy, if you wish we will visit to confirm exact sizes before anything is made.
We advise fitting your track or pole before you measure. You can either do this yourself or we can provide a fitter to do it. Centre your track or pole approximately 15cm (6”) above your window, allowing a 15-20cm (6-8") overlap on either side.Measuring Width
Measure the width of your track or pole (exclude finials on poles)
If you measure the window from recess to recess we can also work from this if a pole or track has not yet been fitted.Measuring curtain drop
For eyelet curtains measure from the top of the pole to your chosen end point.
For pencil and pinch pleat curtains, measure from the base of a curtain ring to your chosen end point, for tracks measure from the top of the track.
We recommend the following:
• Sill length curtains finish 1cm above the windowsill
• Below-sill length curtains finish 15cm below the windowsill or 2cm above the radiator.
• Floor length curtains finish 1cm above the floor

Top tip: Windowsills and floors are not always level, so measure at each end.
