These guides show you how to measure curtain tracks and poles. All you have to do is decide whether you want your curtains to fit just below the window sill or to the floor. Based on the measurments you give me I can work out how much fabric is required and the cost involved.

Pole Measuring Guide

Inside a recess
Measure the drop from the top to the bottom of the recess. Measure the width of the recess at top of window and near the bottom of the window recess.
Outside a recess
Decide how far you would like the blind to overlap the recess. This is generally a minimum of 5cm (2″) on all sides of the recess.
Measure the drop, top to bottom of the window. Measure the width plus the overlap.
