Windows come in so many sizes, why settle for curtains that don't fit properly? We want you to be able to hang your drapery rod where ever you want so we offer our curtains in any length up to 116 inches (quick ship curtains) and 144 inches (special order curtains).
How to Measure
Our pleated curtains utilize curtain rings for easy opening. For floor length curtains, measure from the bottom of the ring to the floor. If you want your curtains slightly off the floor, deduct 1 inch. If you want your curtains to "break" on the floor (aka Trouser Length) add 2 inches and for a "puddle" add at least 5 inches to your length total. See photos below.
If you have decided that you would like the top of curtains finished with grommets, you will need to measure from the top of your rod (where the grommets will rest) to the floor (or beyond as seen above). We will take into account any additional fabric that will extend above your grommet (usually 3/4" in our measurements).
Hang Them High
If you do not have a rod in place already, remember the higher you mount your rod, the higher your window and ceilings will appear. I prefer to mount drapery rods several inches above the window (you can see the difference in the diagram below and the photo above).
If your ceilings are fairly low (see photo example) you can hang your curtains right at your crown molding (or at the ceiling if no molding is present). In most cases I will take the distance between my window frame and crown molding (or ceiling), divide it in half, and go a few inches above my half mark. Of course, if you have extremely high ceilings, this rule changes. Try taking a long piece of blue painter's tape and making a line above your window on your wall where you think you will hang your rod, how does it look? Move it up a bit and take another look. Below is a great example of hanging your drapery rod just above the half way mark between the window and ceiling.
