  • How To Measure For Empire Pole Swags

    1. Measure each window separately as window sizes may vary slightly.
    2. We recommend using a metal tape measure (fabric tape measures may stretch).
    3. (A) If your window has casings, measure from the outside edge of the left window casing across to the outside edge of the right window casing. This is the measurement you will use when ordering your Empire Pole Swags.
    4. (B) If your window does not have casings (a trim molding that encases the window), measure the width of the window, and then add 6 inches. Use this measurement when ordering.

  • How To Hang Your Empire Pole Swag

    1. Empire Pole Swags are designed to be hung using a decorative rod or wood pole measuring 138 " in diameter or less.
    2. Mount the brackets for your decorative rod in line with the right and left outside edges of your window casing. This will insure that the side jabots of the Empire Pole Swag hang on top of and align along the outer edge of the window casings.
    3. Mount the brackets so that the distance from the top of the window casing to the bottom of decorative rod is at least 5 inches. You may want to hang your empire pole swags higher ...this is a matter of personal taste, and whether or not your ceiling height is tall enough to allow it.
