I'd strongly recommend fitting the curtain pole or track before measuring up, so that the finished curtains are the best possible fit.  Use a metal tape to measure, and double check all measurements.  Your track or pole should extend by 15-20cm on each side ( or more for large windows), in order to clear as much window as possible when curtains are open.

 

Width

For a curtain pole, measure between the finials.

For a curtain track, measure the entire length.

For a split curtain track, measure parts A + B (see diagram) to allow for the overlap.

 

Length

Choose what length you want your finished curtains to be.  Take measurements from the top of the track or with a pole it's standard to measure from the bottom of the ring.

Here are the typical curtain lengths- below the sill, just above the floor (around 5-10mm), touching floor, or

for a relaxed look, you can have longer length curtains which 'puddle' on the floor (works really well with luxury fabrics like silk)

Slight adjustments can be made to the hanging height of your finished curtains, with the positioning of the hooks on the heading tape.
