How To Derive Curtain Size?
First, you think, “How long do you want the size of the curtain fall?” Like many people who keep their curtains between 1 to 12 inches above the floor because they can’t be dropped directly, many people drop their curtains 2 or 3 inches on the floor. If that falls down 1 foot, it looks bad; if it falls down 1 and 12 inches below, then it’s ok. Generally, in cold countries like Europe, etc., where the climate is cold, this curtain falls down, and 1 and 12-inch this fashion is trending.
In India, because of the hot climate, we don’t use that much heavy curtains, or we regularly mop and clean the floor. That’s why the curtains are getting dirty. That’s why it’s recommended that above the skirting, you keep the minimum size of the curtain, and you keep that up to the window height, sometimes up to 2, or 2 & 1/2, or 3 feet. But you can take down your curtain. If you want to hide the curtain rod and track so you can take the curtain a little bit above that rod or track, according to this technique, you can derive your curtain size.
Generally, it would be nice to take a curtain 6 to 8 inches in overall size bigger than the window. If you have limited wall space next to your window, like 1 or 2 feet of space, 2 feet it’s an ideal, so end to end, take that whole curtain, or if your window height is 7 or 7 and 1/2 feet above, then you can take the full curtain from ceiling to bottom; it gives a rich vibe. An elevated feel vibes of the whole house, or the window looks big in size, and an illusion comes.
How to Take Specific Measurements of Curtains?
You can get the exact size of the window easily, so we take an example like 6 feet and 7 feet of height for a window, so 42 sq. ft. is the total size of a whole window, assuming 6 inches of extra height on both sides of the window that is increased by 1 foot. Now this is going to be 7 by 7 in size. Again, your skirting height and where are you dropping the curtain from? If you are dropping the curtain from the ceiling, 2 feet of ceiling rests above the curtain, then you add 2 feet where the middle paneling and drop it from there, so you take it from 6 to 8 inches in size, then you measure the length of your curtain from the ceiling to above the rod. Its 2-foot end wall and end-to-end curtain look good.
You are taking a curtain that is small in size, but you have to take 6 to 8 feet in size, and then you make it yourself from the local vendor. Where is your window placed, like a living room, study room, or bedroom? window placement is depend on how to take a curtain from your window.
The second thing is the furniture side. What functional activity is going on the room, according to this, and what is the height of your curtain? If your window width is big (6 or 8 feet), then you take above 1 foot of your flooring level; this looks good. But your window width is 4 or 3 feet, or your window seal is also 3 feet, which means flooring level height from the window, so you buy small-sized curtains. You tell the shopkeeper size of your curtain (63 sq. m., height by width format), take it away with you according to your measurement rack or curtain rod, and fold the curtain into that.
This measurement is from your local vendor. 10 by 7 feet is your approximate size; that size vendor converts, square feet into meters. In the market, curtain rolls are available whose width is fixed, which is called panna. This comes in 54 inches and 1.38 meters. Suppose your window width is 6, then you have to take double the amount of curtain widthwise.
