How to Measure Windows for Drapery & Hardware

Hey guys, Haley here. I'd like to talk to you about measuring your windows for drapery and hardware.

All you'll need is:

  • a trusty tape measure
  • something to record the measurements with
  • a step stool

When measuring for drapery, all you need to determine is your area to cover. To do so, first measure your window’s width, from outside edge to outside edge in three places: top, middle, and bottom.
