Measuring up for curtains:
For the best possible fit, take time to measure your window carefully. We suggest using a metal tape measure for accuracy. The first step is to decide if you want your curtains to hang from a track or a pole, both of which should be positioned 15cm (6 inches) above the window and extend 15-20cm (6-8 inches) either side. We advise fitting the track or pole before taking measurements.
Measure the total width of the track or pole (excluding the finials) – do not measure the window unless it is wall-to-wall. Also allow for overlap - this is an additional measurement, normally 2.5cm (1 inch), which ensures the hanging curtains to overlap in the middle when they are closed.
Measuring curtain drop:
Before measuring the drop, decide whether you want your curtains to fall to the sill, below the sill or to the floor.

Once we've accepted your order and checked the fabric is in stock you should receive your custom-made item/s within 7 days.
Measuring up for Roman blinds:
Use a metal tape measure and make a note of your measurements to the nearest millimetre.
Measuring a blind inside a window recess:
Make sure the recess your blind is going into is not obstructed in any way, so the blind can hang freely when fully extended.
The depth of the recess should be at least 75mm (3 inches) to accommodate the operating mechanism.
Measure the total width from A to B and the length from C to D (see image 7). To allow for slight variation, measure this width at several points and make a note of the narrowest measurement.
Measuring a blind outside a window recess:
Decide how far you want the fabric to overlap on all sides – we recommend at least 45mm (1 ¾ inches). For roller blinds, add a further 38mm (1 ½ inches) for the winding mechanism
Measure the width from E to F (see image 7), and the length from G to H
For information, see the image thumbnail 7 above.
Size restrictions: Minimum and maximum widths and drops apply to custom-made items. We'll advise you on these when taking your order.
