Measuring for curtain drop

Curtains are best hung either to the floor, to a sill or below the sill. We recommend that curtains finish either:-

A) 1cm above the floor
B) 15-20cm below the sill (or 2cm above the radiator)
C) 1cm above the sill

Always measure in at least 3 positions across the track or pole as floors and sills are rarely level. To avoid curtains dragging across the floor or sill we recommend you use the shortest of these 3 measurements.

Pencil Pleat heading

When using a curtain track, measure from the top of the track to where the curtain is to finish. When using a curtain pole, measure from the underside of the decorative ring to where you want the curtain to finish.

Tab Top heading

Tab Top headings have 10cm long tabs (included in the curtain drop) and are suitable for poles up to 45mm in diameter. Measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish.

Eyelet heading

The eyelet will fit poles up to 30mm in diameter. The inner edge of the eyelet is set down 3cm from the top of the curtain. Measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish and add 3cm.
