Width Measurement Tips: To make your window look larger and more dramatic, and to allow in as much natural light as possible when your curtains are open, we recommend extending out from the edges of your windows or doors as much as 6"-12" on each side. If ordering stationary panels (curtains that do not need to close), you may be able to ordering a drapery with less coverage. Contact our design assistants for advice. These calculations are for 54 inches wide fabrics and for 48´ wide fabrics the coverage will be 6 inches less. Please take these values into account when ordering.

2: Select Finished Length

How to measure for rod-pocket panels:

Measure from the top of the pole

to the floor Add 1" to this length for poles up to 1" diameter to accommodate for rod take-up* Add 2" to this length for poles from 1' to 2" in diameter to accommodate for rod take-up* Add additional length for curtain puddling if desired. Refer to puddling guide below for details *Rod take-up refers to the amount of fabric that is required to gather the fabric on the rod. Globusliving¶s standard rod-pocket is designed to fit up to a 1-1/2" pole. For larger poles please contact a Globusliving design assistant. Your selected length will include the 3.5" pocket . How to measure for grommet panels: Measure from the top of the pole to the floor Add 1-1/2" to this measurement for grommet placement Add additional length for puddling if desired. Refer to puddling guide below for details

How to measure for other pleated panels

Measure from the bottom of the drapery ring to the floor Add additional length for puddling if desired. Refer to puddling guide below for details

Tips for Measuring Length: Drapery installed high above a window or door creates a dramatic look that makes your ceilings appear higher. If you desire this look, choose a finished length that is long enough so that the drapery may be installed higher. A small puddle of 1´ to 6´ adds an elegant look to your drapery. If you desire a

puddle, add the desired puddle amount into your finished measurement. See the puddle guide below for guidance. For drapery that will be opened and closed frequently, we recommend ordering a length that will keep the drapery approximately 1/2" off the floor. Globusliving uses the finest materials available to create your custom curtains. Because our fabrics are made of natural fibers there may be slight changes in length due to variables out of our control. This is considered a normal feature of these fabrics; however, if it is of concern, consider ordering a length that includes a small puddle. 3: Select Finished Width Refer to the Width Measurement diagram for assistance. 1.

Blinds measuring guide Page title: Blinds Measuring Guide Blinds Measuring Guide 1: Determine if You Would Like an Inside or Outside Mount

Inside Mount Features: Mounted within the window frame Provides a clean, built-in look Great way to leave attractive woodwork exposed Minimum depth required for secure mount and flush mount. See chart at bottom of page for guidance If window frame isn't deep enough, please select outside mount

Outside Mount Features: Nice option when there is not enough depth for an inside mount Mounted to the wall, ceiling or molding surface surrounding the window Can be used to make the window appear larger or to hide an unattractive window or door No minimum depth requirement Minimum flat surface on wall, ceiling or frame required for secure mount: 1 1/2" (1" blinds), 2 1/2" (2" blinds)

2: Measure Your Window How to Measure Inside Mount: 1: Measure the inside width at three locations: top, middle and bottom. The smallest of the three measurements is your ordering width. We will make the necessary deductions (approx. 1/2"). 2: Measure the height at three locations: left side, middle and right side. The largest of the three measurements is your ordering length. How to Measure Outside Mount: 1: Measure the width of the area you wish to cover. If space allows, we recommend adding 1´ to 1-1/2" on each side to this measurement to help eliminate light seepage. This is your ordering width and will be the overall measurement of the blind (valance will be approximately 3/4" wider than blind). 2: Measure the height of the area you wish to cover. This is your ordering length.
