How to measure for Curtains:
S Wave/ Wave Pleat

Before you can choose the perfect curtains for your space, it’s vital to get the correct window measurements. Follow the steps below to determine the exact size of your curtains, so you can spend more time choosing the fun stuff!

A curtain is made to fit a track, which is what we’re measuring for. It’s pretty straightforward – you just need a width measurement and a height/drop measurement.

What You’ll Need:

A curtain is made to fit a track, and depending on the size of the window it should be wider than the window recess to ensure that the curtain stack does not cover the window when they’re fully open.

If you are ordering a custom track, the curtains will be underslung and the track will be visible. If you order an expandable track the curtain will sit above the track.

With this in mind, measure the exact width of your track in millimetres.

Ideally, the track should be 150mm to 300mm longer than each side of the window.

Next, measure where you want the top of the fabric to start, down to wherever you would like the bottom of the curtain to finish.

There are 2 factors to consider before measuring:
1. Mounting Position – where do you want your curtains to hang from?
There are two standard options. A Face Fix mounts the curtains onto the wall, while a Top Fix mounts them to the ceiling. The best height at which to hang your curtains depends on the size of the window, the height of the ceiling and the style you want.
 
2. Configuration – how do you want your curtains to open?
The curtains can stack on the left, on the right, or on either side with an opening in the centre. You can even go for an offset pair, with an uneven amount of opening on either side.

Using this information, go ahead and measure the exact width and height of your curtain treatment in millimetres.

Face Fix

For a Face Fix, the curtain brackets are mounted onto the wall. This makes for a neat and tailored look, and is a great clutter-free option.

Measuring Width:

Measure the exact width you’d like the curtain to cover. There are no right or wrong answers here, it’s up to you. Having said that, for best light reduction we recommend that the curtain extend at least 12.5% either side of the window or door opening, so 25% all up.

 
 
 
Measuring Height/Drop:
Measure the exact height/drop you’d like the curtain to cover. Again, it’s up to you. Think about whether you want the curtain to pool at the floor or hang just above it.
 
 
 
Top Fix

A Top Fixed Curtain has the brackets mounted onto the ceiling. This means the curtains will spread wall to wall, adding height and a feeling of luxury.

Measuring Width:

Measure the width from the left wall to the right. Our factory will deduct about 10-15mm from your measurement to ensure that the track will fit.

 
 

Measuring Height/Drop: 
Measure the drop in 3 places and use the smallest measurement. Again, our factory will deduct about 10-15mm on the drop so that the curtain finishes above the floor.
