  • How do I measure for curtain rods & tracks?
    How do I measure for curtain rods & tracks?

    Measuring an Existing Rod or Track
    If you have an existing curtain track or curtain rod all you will need to do is measure the total length, excluding the finials (this will give you the total length you require to start shopping.

    Step by Step Measuring for New Tracks & Rods.
    • Step 1 - Start by measuring the recess width of the window, shown as (A) and note this measurement down.
    • Step 2 - Now measure each side of the window recess (B) this measurement is usually 150 mm to 350mm on either side to enable the curtains to be pulled back away from the window to not restrict the daylight, again note these measurements down. A good rule of thumb guide - for a 2000mm window or recess you should have at least 200 mm each side of the window, for a 3000 mm window or recess you should have at least 300 mm each side of the window. In both examples if you are using heavy fabrics allow extra again.
    • Step 3 - Add these three measurements together and this will give you the pole or track length you require. Example; B + A + C = Length required.

    Now you have the length you require you can start shopping.

    NOTE: The Rod lengths do not include the finials. The finials lengths are shown in the specification tab under each individual finial.

    Handy Hints
    • All our custom tracks & rods are manufactured to your exact measurements.
    • When taking measurements its best to get someone to hold the other end of the tape as even metal tape measures will flop over when extended.
    • All the measurements of our tracks and poles are in millimetres (mm).
    • If space is limited either side of the window a smaller finial would be best suited. Finial lengths are given in the finial section under the specification tab. Remember to measure twice cut once.
