HOW TO MEASURE YOUR CUSTOM POLE LENGTH
Measure your window recess (A) cm using our diagram below
Paul Christian recommends that your curtains don’t sit across the window when they are drawn back, so you can gain the maximum amount of light when the curtains are open.
Your made-to-measure pole needs to run past the Window Recess (A) to create a Stack Back (B).
The chart above below gives the optimum Stack Back for pairs of curtains.
|Window Recess||Stack Back|
You may not have this space on the sides of your windows, and there might be more space one side than the other.
Measure the maximum amount possible and make it the same for both sides if you require an even pair of curtains.
Window Recess measures 140cm = A
Recommended Stack Back for recess of 140cm is 30cm = B
Custom Pole length = A + 2B = 140 + (2 x 30cm) = 200cm
(not including length of finials)
Your made-to-measure pole will be professionally cut to your custom length.
For a custom pole length of 200cm you need to order a pole 'up to 210cm'
and enter 200cm in the custom pole length box
There is a choice of 2 diameters for the pole you order. Choose...
19mm for light weight lined curtains
25mm for medium weight lined curtains
FINIAL LENGTHS AND STYLES
The length of the finials is NOT included in your custom pole length.
The finials will add length to your pole so you need to bear this in mind if close to a wall.
