How to Measure for Drapery or Curtain Rods
Determine Your Hardware WidthMeasuring for drapery rods is simple. Follows these simple steps:
if your window is 50” wide, you would normally order
a 60” length curtain rod and the overall finished width would
be 64” to 84” depending upon the finial style.
Keep in mind when measuring that the overall width will not interfere with any objects in the room which you are mounting the drapery hardware.
Always use a steel tape measure. All dimensions
should be taken to the nearest 1/4 inch.
Double check to make sure that you haven’t
transposed width and height measurements.
Measure every window. Windows that look identical
often are not.
