Design Defined: Return



A return is the distance from the face of a curtain rod to the wall casing where the rod bracket is attached.

The standard length of a return is four inches and the reason this information is so useful is because it will help you determine the type of curtains and/or bracket you need to purchase.  If you have very thick, large curtains, you will likely need a larger return.  If you have a more standardized curtain, a four inch return will most likely fit.
