Measurement guide

The secret behind a stylish curtains is to use generously with fabric.
Whether you  use our made to measure service or make the curtains yourself  
you can follow our guide to measurement below.


Placement of curtain rod



Curtain width: To create an impression of a larger and wider window,
let the curtain rod slide 7-15 cm apart from the window.
Curtain drop/length
If you want the ceiling to appear higher, you can place the curtain rod 10 -15 cm above the window.
Preferably, the curtain rod (or curtain rail) should be in place before starting 
the measurement. Use a steel metric or folder rule for best results,
take your time and always check all measurements twice. The two measures you
need are the height and the width.



PICTURE



You measure from the bottom edge of the curtain rod and 
and down to you where you want curtain to end.

If you have curtain rings, measure it from the bottom of the ring.


The height measures you from the bottom edge of the curtain rod down to the floor.
Measure several times, the floor may be uneven, note the shortest measure.
If you want a luxurious feel, you can choose a little longer curtains spreading 
down on the floor. The expression for this is "sweeping" curtains.



Above is an example of "sweeping" that is about 10 cm "too long" curtain.

Touching: add 1-2 cm Breaking: add  3-5 cm  Sweeping: add 10 cm  Puddling: add 15-30 cm.


Width
As principal rule one can say that the width of one curtain should be
at least the same as the width of the curtain pole. (Our fabrics have widths between 120-150 cm.)


How to calculate the fabric usage
For a curtain length, 30 cm extra fabric is required for
the upper and lower hems.
