Existing Rods

Measure from the bottom of the ring to the floor and take off ½” for clearance from floor, to select finished length for all styles of drapes except Grommet Drapes.

For Grommet Drapes you will measure from the top of the rod to the floor and take off ½” for clearance from floor and add 1 ¼” as the grommet drapes hang above the rod.

New Rods

Measure from the top of the casing to the floor and add 4” to that measurement if possible. If you wish them to puddle on the floor you will have to add that measurement as well to select finished length.

For Grommet Drapes add 1¼” to where you want the top of the rod to be mounted.

Measure from casing to casing across your window and add 16” to this measurement for stacking.

Divide this measurement by 2 to determine width of each drape.
