How Do You Measure Curtain Rod?


How Do You Measure Curtain Rod?

  1. Grab a measuring tape or ruler.
  2. Measure the width of your window, then subtract 1/8th inch from that measurement.
  3. Now measure the height of your window and divide 1/2 of it by two, then add two inches to this measurement.
  4. Look at the size from (2) and measure up 1.5 inches from the bottom and mark it with a pencil. Make another mark on the same line at 0.75 inches above the first mark you made.
  5. Measure your window curtain’s length, then add 4 inches to the measurement (This is the amount you will need to drape over the rod.)
  6. Measure from (4) up to your curtain length, then make a mark with a pencil that’s about 1/4 inch above this measurement.
  7. Connect these marks you made in Steps 6 and 10, and draw a line connecting them; this will be your cut line for cutting your rod to size.
  8. If you have a pole that is 5 ft. long then your cut measurements will be 3/4 from the top, 7/8 from the bottom, and 1 inch from each side.
  9. Measure from the top of the rod to the bottom of the curtain you are installing, then measure the width of that piece of fabric and add one inch to it. This is how much you will need for draping over your rod or pole.
  10. Measure the length of your window and add one inch to it. This is your desired length for draping your curtains.
