04/10/2017

If you are looking for a stylish way to add some privacy and elegance to your home, then net curtains are a superb option. Our range of made to measure net curtains offer the opportunity to do just that, and this is certainly the case even if you have a non-standard sized window.


Measure the dimensions first


The first step before you choose which net curtains you would like is to take the measurements. The one key point we always advise is to use a metal tape measure as this gives the most accurate measurements.

When measuring the width, it depends if it will be hanging inside or outside the window recess. If it will be inside, simply measure the length from one end of the window frame to the other. If it will go outside of the recess, then the pole or rail needs to extend 15cm either side of the window. Please note that net curtains shouldn't hang flat, so it is advisable to order 2 to 2.5 times the width you measure.

When it comes to measuring the drop required then it is more of a personal preference, based on how you would like it to look. Ideally, net curtains should hang to just above the window sill for the best look.
