Measuring the full width of the pole between, but not including, the finials at each end of the pole and add 2.5 - 3cm to the measurment for ease and overlap.
Measure the full width of the track from end to end. If the track is in two pieces which overlap in the centre, measure both tracks separately and add the two measurements together.
Track Width with overlap
Width = A to B + C to D
How to measure for the drop of your curtains will depend on the type of curtain heading you want to have (pencil pleat or eyelet), and what the curtains will hang on (track or pole).
For curtains that are falling onto a window sill, or are down to the floor, if you want a small amount of clearance to stop the curtains catching, then we recommend deducting 1cm from the measured length to give a small clearance.

Choosing the correct heading for curtains is important as it will determine how you room will look. Here are some simple tips that will help you make the right choice:
This is a very modern type of heading and will work very well in modern settings. Eyelet headings can only be used with curtain poles, and there is a choice of eyelet colours available to help you match the curtains to your room.
The benefit of eyelets is that when you draw them back, the curtains take up very little room each side of the window, and this allows the maximum amount of light through your window. You also need slightly less fullness in eyelet curtains so they work very well for smaller windows where you don’t have much room to the sides.
However, because eyelets fold in a certain way, its best to avoid vertical striped patterns as they can look a little strange when opened.
Still a very popular heading, pencil pleat curtains will work in any room. Pencil pleat curtains can be fitted to tracks or poles, and so curtains with this heading are the most versatile. This heading will work in any room style, and particularly well in traditional settings with a more traditional fabric design.
The main reason curtains are lined is that it prevents the curtains from fading, and also adds some “body” to the curtains. The benefits of a polycotton lining is that because of the polyester content, the lining fabric has a good resistance to sunlight, and will last much longer that 100% cotton linings when exposed to the sun.
This is our favourite lining, as it offers basic thermal properties. It stops the sun heating up your room if you have large windows, and on sunny days you can draw the curtains to help with a little temperature control.
It also stops light passing through the fabric of the curtains, and so in the summer months, you get the full look of the fabric, rather than a “bleached out” look due to sunlight.
Thermal linings do exactly what they say. They have many of the properties of a normal lining in terms of touch and feel, and are not as stiff as blackout linings, and help with thermal characteristics. Thermal linings are particularly helpful with drafty front doors and older windows where in the winter you get a cold area near the window, as they will help keep the warmth of the room in.
