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, Deep and Pinch Pleat Headings
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.
The 40mm eyelet will fit poles up to 35mm 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.
