How to measure up for curtains

We've teamed up with the Natural Curtain Company, to give you the definitive guide to measuring up for curtains

Curtains are a big investment, and so it’s important to make sure you get your measurements right before you order. Follow our step-by-step guide to measuring up for curtains, with advice from the experts at the Natural Curtain Company.

To avoid mistakes, your curtain pole or track should be in place already. If you make calculations without a pole or track, you are more likely to get incorrect measurements. We advise you to use a metal tape measure for accuracy. Measurements should be in cm to the nearest 1/2 cm.

Make sure you double-check your measurements!
