The ultimate guide to selecting, measuring, and troubleshooting window treatments.
Getting a Perfect Fit
Curtains make a room, but they can also break a room if they aren't measured correctly. Here are some tips to help you get your draperies right and fix those that aren't.
• Be sure to measure all windows, even if they appear to be the same size. Write the dimensions down, and then measure again to double check.
• Use a metal measuring tape. A cloth tape is too flexible to be accurate.
• When measuring, determine the type of rod you are going to use first. If you're using one with rings, you'll measure from the eye of the carrier ring to the floor. The eye is the small metal loop attached to the ring.
