You know online when the different sizes are listed like
168cm x 137cm how do you know whether the first number is width or drop?? Thanku !

Width x drop.

It's width first, then drop. If you look down the list of possible sizes there will be some where the drop is 220cm, which is far too much to be a standard width. That's how I remember it anyway smile

Thankyou both! Xx

There is one that's 229cm x 183cm that's pretty big?!

well yes it is big but it's what I had to buy for a floor to ceiling window.

buy something smaller if that doesn't suit!

My brain still does curtains in inches! I have big windows so 229cm x 229cm is usually the biggest sold in shops. If I want longer Ikea sells it's curtains very long and you hem them yourself.

It would be 229 wide but 183 drop. So wider with a shorter drop.

Do you actually know your window measurements?

Yeah 180x130 so looking like will have to get the widest and then have to take them up? Xx

I would get the widest 229cm. You could get 137cm drop. Depends where you want them to sit. 137cm would just probably skim the windowsill, depending on position of the pole. If you prefer them longer get the next size.

Those measurements arnt an option or I would of gone for that they are all really long to go with the 229 width x
