ARCH TOP

MEASURING – INSIDE MOUNT

First, measure the base width inside the arch opening.

Then measure the height at the middle (tallest) point inside of the arch opening.

Other suggestions:

Keep in mind that if you are ordering an arch, the height of your arch must be half the width. You will have a perfect semi-circle. If your window arch is not perfect, please call us to discuss your options (416-721-1002).

DRAPERY

1. Select Panel Quantity

  • All Trendy Blinds Drapery Pricing is Per-Panel.
- Two (2) Panels will make a complete pair.

2. Select Finished Length

Note: We recommend installing the hardware 8″ above the window opening.

Grommet Panels:
  • Measure from the top of the pole to the floor.
  • Add 1-1/2″ to this measurement for Grommet Placement.
  • Add additional length for Puddling if desired. (See Puddling Guide below)
Flat Panels &
Pleated Panels:
  • Measure from the bottom of the drapery ring to the floor.
  • Add additional length for Puddling if desired. (See Puddling Guide below)

3. Select Finished Width

  • Measure the width of your window from outside edge of window frame to the other side outside edge of window frame (FFW – frame-to-frame Width).
  • Add between 16″ to 24” (A) to this dimension– wider additions for wider windows. (This makes your window appear larger, and allows more glass to be exposed when opened to provide you with a better view outside.)
  • Per-Panel width (PPW) = (FFW+A) / 2.

Puddling Guide – If you prefer for your drapes to Puddle here are some general guidelines:

Minimal Puddle – Small break in the fabric where it meets the floor.
Add 1” – 3” to your length
Moderate Puddle – More dramatic break with some fabric resting on the floor.
Add 3” – 6” to your length
Opulent Puddle – Generous amount of fabric pooling on the floor.
Add 6” – 8” to your length
