MEASURING FOR WINDOWS



 

 

 

Tips for measuring

Plan the proportion of window treatment layers so the length of the top treatment is about 1/5 the length of the overall treatment. The top treatment may be installed higher than the window, to add visual height: it may start at the ceiling, provided the top of the window frame is not visible at its lower edge.

 

Plan for the shortest point of a top treatment to fall at least 4” to 6” (10 to 15 cm) below the top of the window glass.

 

Make a top treatment 4” (10 cm) wider and 2” to 3” (5 to 7.5 cm) deeper than an under treatment.

 

Allow œ (1.3 cm) clearance between the lower edge of the curtain and the floor when measuring for floor-length curtains.

 

Add 2” (5 cm) to the measurement for floor-length curtains for a window treatment that breaks on the floor

 

Add 20” (51 cm) to the measurement for floor length curtains for a window treatment that puddles on the floor

 

Measure for all curtains in the room to the same height from the floor, for a uniform look. Use the highest window in the room as the standard for measuring the other windows
