Now for the less fun part, the numbers.
Measuring can seem like a large task if you do not know the correct methods.
There is a lot to consider.
Whether you want your curtains to reach the floor or the sill.
Then you have to think about the width.
Whether you want them inside the window recess, or above.
Above is usually the answer for those who are wanting curtains.
How To Measure For Curtains
To do this, measure the width of the window.
Then add an extra 30 to 40 centimetres (approx. 12 to 16 inches) to your measurement.
This allows for better light when your curtains are open and doesn’t block any light.
Your track or pole should be around 15 centimetres (approx 6 inches) above your window recess and of course centred.
Hand Crafted For Your Home
You want blinds that are set inside the window recess?
All you need to do is measure the length and the width of the recess.
What if you want your curtains and blinds outside or above the recess?
The same rules apply for the curtains, except you do not need as much added space to the width.
