Determine Curtain Size

How to choose the right size of your drapes or sheer curtains?

1. curtain width

The total width of the curtains for each window or coverage area should be twice the width of the curtain rod.
Use the following formula to estimate:
If need 2 panels,Each Panel Width = Window Rod Width
If single panel,Panel Width=Window Rod Width x 2
Because different widths of your curtain panels have different fullness and different people have different fullness preferences.
Curtain widths should typically be about 1 1/2 to 3 times the final width measurement of your window. However, the fullness you choose will ultimately define the style you want to achieve. Fuller curtains lend a richer feel to your windows.

2. curtain lengths

If selection is Grommet /Rod Pocket/Tab Top/Back Tab,measure from the curtain rod to your chosen spot to find your needed curtain length.
If selection is Pinch Pleat/Plain Top,measure from the ring of track to your desired drop.

This method measures the curtain's effective length for utmost accuracy.
