How to Measure for Curtains and Window Treatments

Last updated 6 years ago

Before measuring your windows for your window treatments, decide if you want to hang them on the inside or the outside of the window frame. Hang your blinds, shades, and shutters on the inside of the window if you have an attractive molding. Hang them on the outside if your windows are not square, have unattractive molding, or you want them to look bigger.

Watch this video to see the best way to measure for each kind of window treatment. If you are hanging them on the inside, measure the width of the window in three places and use the narrowest width. Measure the height in three places and use the longest. For window treatments on the outside, measure the width of the window three times and use the widest.
