- Measure your window – For accuracy, use a metal measuring tape to measure the length of your window. To measure length, start at the top of the frame, going straight down. To determine the width, measure from one side of the window to the other.
- Determine rod position – The rod placement depends on the style of drapes you have chosen. Choose from an inside trim mount, below trim mount, or above trim mount.
