HOW TO MEASURE FOR DRAPERIES


IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED DRAPERY RODS





All measurements in inches

TO DETERMINE PANEL LENGTH

Measure from bottom tip of the rod to the floor. See A. Deduct 1" if you want your drapery to break on the floor. Deduct 1½" for floor clearance or add 1-2" for light puddle.

TO DETERMINE PANEL WIDTH

Measure the length of the drapery rod from one side of the rod to the other (excluding the finals/cap). See B.

ADD FULLNESS

To avoid draperies looking like a stretched sheet when drawn in add 2 times fullness (recommended). Multiply the width (B) by 2 for 2 times fullness or 1.5 for lesser fullness. Example: If your B is 80" wide, then 80"x2 =160". So each panel should be 80" wide. Email us at designer@barnandwillow.com





IF YOU HAVE NOT YET INSTALLED DRAPERY RODS



All measurements in inches

TO DETERMINE PANEL LENGTH

Measure from window top trim to the floor. See C. Your drapery rod should be placed 6"-8" above the top trim, so add 6"-8" to C. Deduct 1" if you want your drapery to break on the floor. Deduct 1½" for floor clearance or add 1-2" for light puddle.

TO DETERMINE PANEL WIDTH

For the best look, drapery rods should extend at least 8'' beyond the frame on each side. Measure the horizontal width of the window from trim to trim. See D. Add 8" on each side.

ADD FULLNESS

To avoid draperies looking like a stretched sheet when drawn in add 2 times fullness (recommended). Multiply the width (B) by 2 for 2 times fullness or 1.5 for lesser fullness. Example: If your B is 80" wide, then 80"x2 =160". So each panel should be 80" wide. Email us at designer@barnandwillow.com





HOW TO MEASURE FOR ROMAN SHADES





All measurements in inches

TO DETERMINE INSIDE MOUNT

• Mounted within the window frame and has a clean look

• 1” minimum depth of window required to mount the roman shade

• If window frame (inside) isn’t deep enough, please select outside mount

STEP 1: MEASURE WIDTH

Measure the horizontal width of inside of the window frame (for inside mount) in 3 locations­ top, middle and bottom. This is the width of the roman shade

STEP 2: MEASURE LENGTH

• Measure the vertical height of inside of the window frame (for inside mount) in 3 locations ­left, middle and right. This is the length/height of the roman shade

Note: Sometimes windows are uneven at different places. So, for width of roman shade note down the shortest/smallest of the 3 (top, middle and bottom) measurements. For length, note down the longest of the 3 (left, middle and right)measurements.









All measurements in inches

TO DETERMINE OUTSIDE MOUNT

• This is a great option when window isn’t deep enough for inside mount

• Hardware is mounted to the wall, closer to ceiling or on the moulding surface surrounding the window frame

• Gives a visual height to the window

STEP 1: MEASURE WIDTH

• Measure the horizontal width of the area you wish to cover. We recommend letting your roman shade extend at least 1”-­1.5” on each side of window to avoid light seepage. So whatever is the width of your window from frame to frame, add total of 2”-­3” to that.

STEP 2: MEASURE LENGTH

Measure the vertical height of the area you wish to cover. In outside mount style, when the roman shade is kept completely pulled up, it will cover about 10­-12” of your window. So we recommend installing the roman shade at least 10”-­12” above the window frame so it does not block the view when kept pulled up.
