Measuring for a curtain track or pole
If you don't already have a track or pole in place, we recommend fitting one before you measure for curtains.
Measure the width of the window and add 30-40cm, this will ensure your curtains will comfortably cover your window. Fit your track or pole approximately 15cm above your window recess and centred ensuring you have 15-20cm either side of the window.

Measure at Multiple points
Windowsills and floors are not always level, so measure at 2 or 3 points and use the smallest measurement to ensure the best fit.
