Curtain pleats and measuring information


Measuring Curtains

Use a retractable metal tape measure to ensure accuracy. 

Don’t measure the existing drape or window covering. This won’t provide an accurate measure.

Decide on coverage. Curtains usually extend about 15 cms above the window frame, 15 cms on each side.

Consider how much light you want to block and how much privacy you want the curtains to provide.

Fullness: Use a metal tape measure to measure from side to side. Multiply the side-to-side measurement by 2 or 2.5 to allow for generously full curtains.
