This page will give you all the information needed on how to Measure for Eyelet curtains, if you still have questions feel free to get in contact and we will answer any questions you have.
Our Ready made Eyelet Curtains are 1350mm x 2200mm
The width refers to when the curtain is flat and has no fullness/gather. If using the Eyelet Curtains to cover the whole window area, a general guide is to multiply the window area by 1.5 and this will give you the overall flat width measurement you require your curtains to add up to.
For example, if your window width is 1500mm multiplied by 1.5 = 22250mm. Ideally, two 1350mm wide curtains (total flat width 2700mm) will suit this window.
Based on achieving a medium amount of fullness/gather the 1350mm wide curtain comfortably covers a 900mm wide area
The fullness/gather is a personal choice and the above information is only a guide. The Eyelet Curtain is often used as a side drape over blinds, in which case the size will generally not matter.
Measuring the Width
- If you have an existing curtain rod/pole to hang your Eyelet Curtains on, measure the width of the usable part of the rod only and do not include the end caps/finials.
- If you are ordering a rod/pole with your curtains, it is suggested that you measure for the curtain rod/pole to extend approximately 100-150mm past each side of the window.
Measuring the Drop
- All of our ready made eyelet curtains come with a simple do it yourself iron on hemming tape that enables you to reduce the drop to suit your window.
- The curtain rod/pole is generally installed approximately 70mm above the window/architrave.
- The eyelet curtain will extend approximately 30mm above the rod/pole.
