For curtains to the sill, measure to 1cm above the sill. This will ensure the curtain does not drag. For curtains below the the sill measure 4″ to 8″ (10cm to 20cm) below the sill. However if you are choosing this length to avoid a radiator please adjust this measurement to allow the curtains to stop a couple of centimetres above the radiator. For curtains to the floor, measure to 1cm above the floor. This will ensure the curtain doesn’t drag.
