How To Measure For Drapery Hardware

To measure for a drapery rod, follow the simple steps below.

MEASURING TIPS
• Precise measurements are key.
• Use a steel tape measure.
• Measure each window and doorway individually (windows and doors that appear to be the same size are often not).

Easy Steps to follow

1. DETERMINE SPACE NEEDED FOR DRAPERY ROD. 

MEASURE:

• Outside window frame to outside frame.
• Add 2"-8" for panels to rest on either side of window frame when open.
• Add the extra inches needed for decorative finials.
• The total from the 3 measurements above is the amount of horizontal space needed for your drapery rod.

2. DETERMINE ROD PLACEMENT
• If not using drapery rings: Measure from bottom of rod to floor.
• If using drapery rings: With drapery attached to the rings, measure from bottom of rod to top of drapery fabric; add this measurement to your drapery length to determine rod placement.
