How to measure curtains for home?

Measure the Width:

Start by measuring the width. Use measuring tape to measure the rod from left to right. If you don’t have a rod or haven’t installed one yet, measure the outside of the window frame from the left side to right.

Measure the Length:

The length of your curtains depends on how much you want your curtains to hang. They could go to the sill or all the way down to the floor. Once that is known, use your measuring tape to measure from the curtain ring down to where you want the curtains to stop. If you don’t have or haven’t installed your curtain rod yet, measure from the base of the window to where you want the curtains to hang. Then add two inches to compensate for the curtain rod. Moving the rod up and down or changing the size of the curtain rings can determine how low the curtains will hang.
