How to Measure for Window Scarves

By Jamal Robinson

Window scarves are decorative pieces of fabric used to provide an attractive layer to windows. They introduce a new element of style, adding dimension and character to the room while enhancing the window treatments already in place.

Obtain the width by measuring the curtain rod from one end to the other.

Measure the length of the window, from the curtain rod to the floor or other desired resting place for the scarf. Generally, window scarves drape all the way to the floor, but can be shorter.

Combine the width and length measurements. They will be used to obtain your scarves’ measurement.

Tip

A standard window scarf is 50 inches wide by 216 inches long.

Take into account the length to which you would like your scarves to hang over your curtains or windows.
