All measurements should be provided in cm (unless the website gives you the option to provide the measurement in mm or inches).
Always use a metal rule when taking the measurements.
If you are replacing a curtain pole or track, we advise that you measure the width of the existing fitting rather than the window. If measuring a pole, do not include the finials (decorative ends) in you measurement.
Measuring for a window for a new pole or track
Choosing the right pole diameter
When choosing a curtain pole, the required diameter will depend on the weight of the curtains. The table below offers a guide to selecting a suitably sized pole depending on the curtain weight.
Remember to take into account any extra weight such as linings. Also please note that pencil pleat curtains for example will have a greater fullness than a curtain with eyelets therefore the weight can be greater.
|Up to 19mm||Light weight (up to 4kgs in total)|
|25mm or 28mm||Medium weight (up to 8kgs in total)|
|35mm or over||Heavy weight (up to 12kgs in total)|
|Eyelet Size||Suitable Pole Diameter|
