It is important that when you look to use curtains at your windows that you measure the space that you have correctly.

The drop of your curtain will need to  be long enough to cover the glass but not so long that your curtains hit any furniture or radiators near your window, or drag on the floor – that is unless you are specifically looking for floor length curtains.
