How to measure your windows

PLEASE GIVE EXACT MEASUREMENT - THE MAKERS ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ERRORS IN ORDERING
Just read the easy to follow instructions below. Then all you'll need is a steel tape measure, not cloth tape - they stretch. But take care, accurate sizes are essential.
We'll take it from there. In no time at all you'll receive your tailor-made blinds to fit your window perfectly.

Measuring GuideWidth (all headings)

Measure the entire width of your pole or track. If you don’t have one in place yet, measure the width of your window recess and add 30cm

Drop (pencil & pinch pleat)
Measure the distance from the top of the track or if you have a pole, the bottom of the ornamental ring to 1cm above the floor (2/3cm if you have not yet had carpet fitted but intend to) or 4cm below the window sill.

Drop (eyelet heading)
Measure the distance from the top of the pole to 1cm above the floor (2/3cm if you have not yet had carpet fitted but intend to) or 4cm below the window sill.




Note..

We manufacture all Made-to-Measure-Curtains to a minimum of 100% fullness (Double Width*) except in the case of eyelet heading** in which case we manufacture to a minimum of 75% fullness. All Made-to-Measure curtains are manufactured to the nearest Half Width (1 Width = 130cm*).  Please see an example below:

Track/Pole Width: 195cm. (Pencil pleat headings only)

Each curtain panel would have a fabric width of 195cm* generating a total fabric amount of 390cm*.  This is to allow for a generous gather.

In essence, the amount of fabric you receive will be approximately double the Track/Pole width specified for pencil pleat.

* Fabric Widths can vary slightly (10cm either way)

 ** Eyelet size: 4cm opening
