                Measuring for net curtains involves taking two measurements on your window.

    • 1. The drop/ length: If you already have a net curtain wire or net curtain rod in place measure the drop from the wire or rod to where you want the curtain to end. If not, then measure from the top of the frame (not the glass), inside the window reveal.
    • 2. The width: Measure the width of the existing wire or net curtain rod, or the frame if none is currently fitted.

                 For the drop you can go for slightly less or more than your measurement based on what works best for your window.

                 For the width you need to decide how full to have your curtains. The standard fullness is 2 times your width measurement. 

                 For additional privacy go for 2.5 times your width measurement or even 3 times.
