When moving to a new home, or when get a new house, or when we want to avoid unwanted lights when sleeping, we need to purchase new curtain panels, but how to measure it, we have some experience to help you easily understand how to do.
Measuring Your Window
Measure the width of the rod from left to right. A common rule for displaying curtains properly says the curtains finished width should be at least 2 times the width of your window (if not more - sheers can be 3 times the window width) to achieve a look of proper fullness.
Example: If your window measures 200cm wide (window width x 2 = 400cm), you need curtains that will give a minimum width of 400cm or 2 panels (each panel 200cm) for that window. In this case 2 panels will give about 250cm to 300cm of width which will look nice and full. Always round up to the next full number.
Common Fullness multipliers (multiply your measured width by):
Standard fullness multiply by 2
Deluxe Fullness multiply 2.5
Ultra fullness multiply by 3
Measure the length of the window or area you want to cover from top to bottom ( Our curtain standard length maximum 280cm, over or less this size please note in message or contact seller to mark it).
