Window Width - pair of curtains Some customers, may be putting their curtains up at the patio door so would rather have a pair of curtains. If you would like to do this, simply divide your window width by 2 , and then when you go to the shopping basket change the quantity to 2. We will then make a curtain for each half of your window so you will have a pair.
Fabric Width - For example, I need 8 mtrs (800cm) fabric width for my curtain. If you would like to do this simply enter the value as window width and then at the gather option below, change the gather to 1. You will then receive the same amount of fabric as the window width.
Measuring Window Height - inside recess - We recommend you measure the complete inside recess from the window sill all the way to the plaster at the top of your window. When you hang your curtains there will be about a 3/4 inch gap at the bottom.
Measuring Window Height -Wire is in fixed position If your wire is in a fixed position and you can not move it we recommend you measure from the window sill to 1cm (0.5 inch) above the top of the wire, enter this as your window height.
Gather - Gather is the difference between the window width and the width of the fabric for the curtains.
All the pictures on the website show double gather this is also our recommended option. So for example if your window width is 100cm your fabric width would be 200cm.

The double gather which is most popular is in the middle. 2.5 Gather is next to this which has slightly more folds in the curtain and triple gather which is the most luxurious is on the right hand side.
