We recommend that you use a metal tape measure for the most accurate measurements.
Ready made curtains are available in set sizes, normally in a variety of different colours . All blockout curtains and blackout curtains are sold in pairs unless otherwise stated. Measurements shown are per curtain not per pair.
There are 2 types of headings for Ready Made Curtains, which we currently sell, they are Pencil Pleat (3” tape) that is suitable for all tracks and poles, and there are Eyelet Curtains which are suitable for poles only.
How To Measure:
You will need to measure the width of your pole or track (A) and the required drop (B) using the instructions below:
A – The width
Measure the width of the track or pole in cm (excluding the finials). Do not measure the window unless the window is the same size as the wall. For example if your track measure 202cm wide we would recommend the widest width of curtains which is a pair of curtains generally 229cm or 275cm wide. Please refer to the product page for available sizes in each design.
B – The Drop/Length
First you need to decide where you want the curtains to finish; at the window sill, below the window sill (approx 15cm below the sill) or to the floor. Please see drawing below. Measure from the top of the track or pole to where you want the curtains to finish. Ready made curtains come in 3 drops; 137cm (54"), 182cm (72") and 229cm (90") (Some available in 275cm. (108")) You need to order to the nearest next longest drop.
