Decorating our homes is a lot of fun – the colors, the fabrics – so many beautiful options! But, the job does not end once you select the perfect fabric for those one of a kind window treatments. Unless you are working with a professional, you will need to be taking measurements. The wrong measurements can ruin a job. Whether you’re installing drapes or blinds, valances or shutters – there is a basic set of of measurements to be taken.
I thought I’d share the worksheet that I use on client projects. As a general rule, I use one sheet per window and I always take every measurement, even those I know I won’t need. Better to be in the practice of taking more than you need than finding out you are missing one while standing in the store placing your order.
