    Measuring curtain drop

    Before you start, decide where you want your curtains to finish. For floor-length curtains, we suggest curtains 1.5cm longer than floor-length. If your floors are uneven, make sure you measure each side of the window and choose the longest measurement.

    For sill-length curtains, we suggest either 15cm below the sill or 1-2cm above it.
