How to measure curtains

Follow common measurement rules, but also pay attention to additional tips. Using our provided instructions below, you can easily calculate the exact length of the needed curtains.

Measuring rules

  • Hang the rail.
  • Measure the length of future curtains – measure from the bottom of the rail to the floor and subtract 2 cm, so that the fabric does not touch the ground.
  • The width of the curtains should correspond to the width of the rail


  • Measure only after hanging the rail.
  • Fasten the rail in a way so that it extends over 10 cm from both sides of the window.
  • In order for curtains to hang freely, pay attention to window and door handles and radiators.
  • Measure the height from left, center, and right – as floor, rail or ceiling are often not smooth. If the measurements are not the same, take the smallest measure of length.
  • If you are buying a new home, keep in mind that depending on the floor, the required height of the curtains may change.
