MEASURING FOR CURTAINS

Home Measuring Service

Janet Riley Fabrics offers a personal measuring and fitting service to our customers, ensuring your curtains fit perfectly.

For a small charge, which will be deducted off your order, we will come to your home and take all the measurements required to ensure a perfect fit. We will also come back and hang them for you, if required.

Alternatively, you can provide us with your own measurements. Take a look at our How to Measure Guide below, to see exactly what we require.

HOW TO MEASURE

 
Step 1  - Fit Curtain Poles or Tracks 

Fit the poles or track first, before you measure for curtains.


When fitting a Pole or Track, ideally allow between 15cm and 30cm either side of the window and 10cm to 15cm above the window.

Step 2 - Measuring the Width

Curtain Tracks

On Curtain Tracks measure the whole length of the track: 

If your Track has a central overlap, include the overlap in your end to end measurement:

Curtain Poles

On Curtain Poles measure between the ends and do not include the decorative ends (finials): 

Step 3 - Measuring the Length or Drop


Ideally you should measure the length, from the track or pole to one of the following positions:

  1. the window sill

  2. 15-20cm below the window sill

  3. the floor

Curtain Tracks

Measure from the top of the track to where you want the curtain to finish.

Curtain Poles

Measure from the bottom of the ring on the pole to where you want the curtain to finish

Eyelet Curtains on Poles

For eyelet curtains, measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish, then add 2cm.
