Correct measurement of curtains, how do you do it?


Why is it important to measure curtains?

Curtains can transform the look of any room, but it is essential that they are the right size. Curtains that are too short or too long can disrupt the entire aesthetic effect of your room. Accurately measuring curtains ensures that you get the perfect window decoration that is tailor-made for your specific space.

Step 1: Gather the necessary materials for measuring curtains.

Before you start measuring, make sure you have all the supplies you need at hand. These include a tape measure for accurate measurements, a pencil for taking notes, paper to write down your measurements, and possibly a ladder if you have tall windows.

Step 2: Measure the width of the window or door for which you want curtains.

Start by measuring the full width of the window or door. This will give you the basic measurement for the width of your curtains. Depending on your style preferences and the type of curtain, you may want to add extra width for pleats or overlapping.

Step 3: Determine the correct height for your curtains.

Then measure the height of your window or door, from the top of the window frame to the desired length of the curtains. Some people prefer curtains that hang just above the floor, while others want them to touch the floor or even trail over it for a more luxurious effect.

Step 4: Consider extra room for pleats or overlap when measuring curtains.

If you want curtains with pleats or some overlap, you will need to take this into account in your measurements. For pleats, add extra inches to the width. For overlap, you can add a few extra inches to each side of the width so that the curtains overlap in the middle.

Step 5: Check and double-check your measurements before ordering or making curtains.

It's always a good idea to double-check your measurements before continuing. A small mistake could mean your curtains don't fit properly, so take the time to make sure everything is right.

My name is Monia and I am a lover of aesthetics and interior beauty. I specialize in writing texts that capture the essence of modern decoration.

For me, interior decorations are not just objects: they are stories that come to life in every room. Wall murals, window decorations such as stylish curtains or practical roller blinds, as well as unique wall decorations (acrylic prints, canvas prints, aluminum prints) – each of these elements has a story waiting to be told.

What makes my work so special? The collaboration with a great designer Daria with whom I form a complementary duo. Her visions and decoration ideas, combined with my ability to capture their beauty in words, create a unique effect. Together we inspire existing and new customers, giving them a fresh look at decorations.

I am proud to be part of and to contribute to creating unforgettable spaces for our customers. I invite you to keep up to date with our latest creations and be inspired by what we create together!

Kind regards,
