Q. How do I measure the size of my motorised curtains?

A. We recommend the motorised curtains to cover the whole wall, if you choose to do so, then the width of the motorised curtain track would be the width of the wall deduct 3~4 cm; if you choose just to cover the window,then the width of the motorised curtain track would be the width of the window plus 60~80 cm for normal length (3m~4m) of motorised curtain track, it depends on the width of your window. If your window or door is very wide, there are more runners used, in this case, you need to consider to add some more extra length of track, so the motorised curtain track can fully open. A good rule of thumb guide - for a 2000mm window or recess you should have at least 200 mm each side of the window, for a 3000 mm window or recess you should have at least 300 mm each side of the window. In both examples if you are using heavy fabrics allow extra again.
Because the motorised curtain is better to use the traditional pleated curtains , so the curtain fabric width is better to be 1.5~2 times of the motorised curtain track width depending on the thickness and the weight of the curtain fabric.
