Readymade Curtain Width
All our readymade curtains are sold as pairs, and the curtain width sizes stated refer to the size of each curtain
For example, in a pair of curtains 46" wide x 54" length, there will be two curtains, each measuring 46" wide.
To calculate the curtain width sizes required, the total width of the curtains should be no less than one and a half the width of your window. To achieve a full and luxurious look, we recommend increasing the fullness to double the width of your window.
Ready Made Curtain Length
Please Note : Before deciding on length of your curtains, we recommend you fit your poles and tracks. If you need advice on measuring for curtain poles or track please click here
Before measuring for the length, you must decide whether your curtains should fit to the sill, below the sill or to the floor. When measuring for the length of your curtain we recommend the following should be taken into account:
> SILL LENGTH curtains should finish approximately a half inch (1.5cm) above the sill.
> BELOW SILL LENGTH curtains should finish approximately 4-6" below the sill for the best effect.
> FLOOR LENGTH curtains should finish approximately a half inch (1.5cm) above the floor.
The allowances will ensure you get the best from your curtains.
