DETERMINE YOUR HARDWARE WIDTH:
Rod width does not include the width of the finials on each end. Finials add 2” to 11” in width on each end, depending on the finial style. We recommend a 5” overlap on each side of the window. For example if your window is 50” wide, you would normally order a 60” length rod and the overall finished width would be 64” to 84” depending upon the finial style.
INSIDE MOUNT MEASURING:
Have customer measure just the opening. Factory will deduct for brackets.
BAY WINDOWS MEASURING:
To order a bay window rod set correctly, you need to provide the separate measurement of each section of the bay area wall (shown here as A, B and C) and the degree of each wall angle (shown here as Angle #1 and Angle #2). If you would like us to determine the angles, you will need to additionally provide the opening width of the bay.
We will calculate your rod size based on these measurements and rod style you select. Our standard calculations allow for the finials to be just short of the outside of the opening. If you wish them to project out past the opening please advise when ordering.
- Always use a steel tape measure. All dimensions should be taken to the nearest 1/4 inch.
- Double check to make sure that you haven’t transposed width and height measurements.
- Measure every window. Windows that look identical often are not.
- If you have any questions, please contact Customer Service for more information.
