Choosing curtain poles that enhance the features of the interior will help ensure you end up with a room in which you love to spend your time. When shopping for curtain poles, it's crucial that you get a set that fits around the window in the way you want them to, so careful measurements are important.
To measure for your curtain poles, first measure the inside recess of the window. Next, decide how far you want the curtain rods to overhang on either side of the window. This will create a space for the curtains to be drawn back and therefore allowing the full amount of light through the window. Generally, this measurement should be at least 15cm for each side of the window, although this may vary depending on your personal preference and the layout of the room. Then finally, add the measurements together to get the recommended length for your curtain poles.
