Measuring for Net Curtains

Net curtain width

measurement-guideMeasure the recess (inside frame) width of your window. This is shown by the horizontal arrow in the diagram to the right. We recommend you measure the width in several places and then take the shortest measurement. If there is already curtain wire or a tension rod in place, measure the width of either of these. For appropriate fullness/gather in your net curtain, we recommend multiplying your calculated width by 2.5x. The greater the fullness, the greater the privacy.

Net curtain height/drop

Measure the recess height (top of the frame) to where you want the curtains to hang to. Again, we recommend you measure the height in several places and then take the shortest measurement.
