Take the measurement
Before you start taking the measurement, here are a few things to consider.
- How many panels would you like to cover the window?
- Do you like the curtains to be wall mounted or ceiling mounted?
- Do you like the curtains puddle or kiss the floor?
- Do you want to extend the rod so the curtains won’t be covering the window when fully open?
Our detailed measuring guide will direct you through the different styles and options to make sure that you measure for that perfect, custom fit!
If your mind is set to our ripplefold style curtains, this all about ripplefold blog will show you how to measure and the installation process.
Pick your fabric
Think about colors, materials and how much light you’d like to let through, etc.
- Do you need the curtains to provide privacy or blackout?
- Would you like the curtains to be the focal point or understated?
We offer ‘Free Swatches’ so you can see our fabrics in your own home and decide which materials and colors will work the best for your space! For a quick overview on our fabric information, simply scroll down to the More Fabric Information table.
For 100% blackout curtains, you can either choose our 100% blackout fabric collection - Solid or Stark, or you can add 100% blackout lining to any of our fabric in the ordering page.
The final step! Putting in your order.
You will get instant pricing by simply putting in your measurements, the chosen fabric, color, heading, lining and number of panels. Keep in mind that Grommet and Rod Pocket - Tape/Flat Ring Top are the only styles that don’t have fullness built in, so for these two heading styles, you will need to multiply your coverage/rod width1.5-2.5 to create the fullness you desire.
