How To Measure Windows For Curtains?
How to Measure Windows For Curtains Curtains provide insulation, privacy and above all, character, to any room. To avoid costly mistakes, correct window measurements are essential for perfect window treatments. To insure a proper window measurement always use a metal measuring tape, as flexible fabric tapes are not accurate. Work with either inches or centimeter dimensions throughout the entire measurement process. Determine the placement of the rod and bracket assembly. Be sure to position the assembly at least 4 inches or 10 centimeters from the top of window glass so that rods, pleats and gathers are not visible from outside the home. Brackets are attached to window casings or to the adjacent wall. Determine the window width by measuring across the window and casing, if any. Write down this measurement. Next, measure from the wall to the front face of the curtain rod and bracket assembly. Multiply this measurement by 2 and write it down. Add both measurements together. This is the total width of the window. Determine the window length by measuring down the window and casing from where the top of the curtain rod will be positioned. Take three vertical measurements from the rod top. A measurement to the flat window sill, one to the window casing apron and one measurement to the floor will insure precision regardless of the style of curtains chosen for that window. Consider heating ducts and radiators when selecting curtain length. Finally, always indicate whether the measurement is for width or length, and be sure to measure each window individually for the perfect fit.
