Curtain Lengths, Curtains Size, and Curtains Width
In the list down below you can see curtains width and curtain length of the window curtain products in inches. Width is specified either for one (single) panel or for two panels, because certain window curtains are sold as a pair.
Some of the measurements, like 96" wide x 84" long, relate to either one or two panels; Pinch Pleated Thermal Curtains have two panels, while Patio Door Drape of the same size has only one panel. If you have extra wide windows, like a window wall, you may consider using two of those door panels, thus making a pair of extra wide curtains 192 inches wide.
If you have difficulty finding the curtains size you need be aware that there is a way to extend the width of curtain product by adding filler valances between the panels. If your window/door is narrower then the curtains width, you may extend your curtain rod a few inches father on both or one side beyond the opening you are covering. If you window is not as tall as curt6ains, you may raise your rod a little bit.
Finding The Width You Need:
The width you see listed in each of our curtain product name and description is the "overall" width measurement of the item laying flat.
When an empty curtain rod is installed in your window, measure the width of the rod from one end to the other.
Finding the Length you need:
Length of the tab top curtains is measured overall. The length on the tabs is 3.6 inches is included in the overall length. You need to keep in mind that if you do not want the window to show/shine above the tab top curtains through the tabs you need to mount your decorative rod at least 3.6" (or better 4 or more inches) above the window space and add these extra inches to your calculated length.
Guidelines On How To Measure
When an empty curtain rod is installed on your window, measure length from the top of the curtain rod down to the top edge of the window stool or where you want the bottom of the curtain to hang.
Pinch Pleated Pair of Drapes Width Measurements
Pleated window treatments do not have rod pockets, so they do not get gathered on a curtain rod.
If you use decorative round rod with rings, the width of your window drapery rod is about the width of the curtains you would need. You may want to add a few extra inches for the drapes to reach beyond the window width for better insulation and look.
If you want to use a traverse rod, then you will want the drapes to overlap in the middle and cover the ends (wrap around the rod's corners). This will require extra width depending on the distance your rod is positioned away from the wall.
Let's say the rod is 4 inches away from the wall; then you will need to add extra 8 inches to your measurements (4 inches on each side of the rod) plus the desired size of the overlap (2-6 inches). In this case the extra width you need to add to your drapes width is 10-14 inches. If your window if 106 inches wide, the width of the drapes you need is 114"-120" wide.
If your traverse rod is positioned 6 inches away from the wall, you will need to add extra 12 inches (6 inches on each side of the rod) plus the preferred size of the overlap in the middle (2-6 inches), which will make total extra required width 14-18 inches. So, if your window if 106" wide, the width of the drapes you need is 120-124 inches wide.
Patio Door Drapes Width Measurements
If you are shopping for patio door drapes (for sliding glass doors), standard width of the door is 96” wide, and standard patio door drapery panel width is 96” wide too. But it is also advisable to have some extra width, wider than the actual width of your door frame. With traverse rods, which open and close with draw string, you might want the drapery panel to pull completely off to the side of the door in order to allow using that door without the drape interfering with its function. All the patio drapes we have are 96" wide.
If you use decorative round rod with rings and clips, the width of your patio door/or drapery rod is about the width of the patio drape you would need. You may add several extra inches for the drape to reach beyond your door width for better insulation and look. If you want the drape to be completely out of the way when it is open you want extra 6-12 inches to do the job. So, if your patio door is 74" wide, the minimal width of the drape you want is 80-86 inches wide.
If you want to use a traverse rod, then you will want the drape to cover the end of the rod (wrap around its corner). This will require at least 3-6 inches of extra width depending on the distance your rod is positioned away from the wall. If the rod is 3 inches away from the wall, then you will need to add extra 3 inches to your measurement. If your traverse rod is positioned 6 inches away from the wall, then you will need to add extra 6 inches on each side of the rod to wrap around rod's corner, which will make total extra width 6 inches. So, if your patio door is 86" wide, the minimal width of the drape you need is 89-94 inches wide.
If a traverse rod has been already installed on your windows or patio door, measure its length from one inch above the rod. It will give you the approximate length you need.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.
