While our curtains are sold in pairs, the sizes refer to each individual curtain. So if you purchase 46" X 54" curtains you will receive two curtains 117cm x 137cm (46" X 54") in size, this allows for a full and luxurious fitting.
Firstly, measure the width of your curtain track or pole. If you have yet to fit your pole or track please bear in mind that the track or pole should ideally be positioned 15cm (6") above the window and extend 15cm (6") either side of the window (excluding finials).
We would recommend you use the following as a guideline which will result in a "full" look to your curtains:
|To fit track/pole
||up to 122cm
|122 - 168cm
(48"' - 66")
|168 - 228cm
(66" - 90")
|228 cm - 345 cm
(90" - 136")
As a minimum the total width of both curtains should be one and a half times as wide as the track or pole (excluding finials).
Measuring curtain length for poles
Drop / Length
| ||Pencil pleat curtains: measure from the eye - the small metal ring at the bottom of each curtain ring. This will prevent the pole or rings from being obscured by the curtain.|
| ||Tab top curtains: measure from the very top of the pole.|
| ||Measuring curtain length for tracks: measure from the top of the track.|
Before measuring the length, decide whether you want your curtains to fit to the sill, below the sill or to the floor.
