Step 2

Measure Stack Width

Stack is the additional width added to your drapery & hardware beyond your window width, keeping your drapery panels from covering your window as well as making your window appear larger.
We recommend selecting 8" stack width for each side if you have the space to do so.

Measure Mounting Height

Everhem Hardware requires a minimum height of 3 ½” above your window trim to be properly mounted; however, we recommend selecting 7” above the top of the window frame or moulding if you have the room to do so. Questions? Reach out to us or schedule a virtual consultation.

Designer Dropdown Recommendation
After you’ve determined your mounting height, deduct the outer diameter of the rings you will use to hang your drapery. This will ensure your drapery panel length will just kiss the floor.
Our designers recommend...
We recommended a {panel_type} configuration based on your measurements.
Our designers recommend...
We recommend a Four-Panel configuration since your window is over 12 feet wide.
