The key to properly mounting curtains is understanding how to measure your windows beforehand and then buying new curtains and curtain rods. Follow the steps below to accurately measure your windows and buy suitable curtains every time.

Before purchasing curtains, we need to measure the size of the window first, then purchase curtain rods or tracks, and finally, purchase appropriate curtains based on the size of the rods or tracks. The following is the measurement of the curtain size according to different hanging styles after the rod has been installed.
