How to Measure for Draperies | Drapery Connection

Begin at the top; position your curtain rod. To measure for curtain length, decide where you want your curtain to start-at window height, above or below and where it will fall-valance length, window sill, window apron,floor, longer than floor....and then measure from the top of the rod down. Scarves should be longer than the width of the window plus twice the length you want the scarf to swag. Add length if you are going to wrap the scarf around the rod or pole. If you are using clips rings, measure from the bottom of the hooks. For drapery panel width, measure the length of the curtain rod and multiply it by 1 -1/2 to 2 times.
