If you are measuring for roman shades then remember to leave a gap of around an inch between the shades. This is to allow for the binds becoming more bulky as they are pulled up. They will start to bump into each other.
A little tip I find useful is to add an extra half inch to the drop (length) measurement. This is because and don't ask me why. The shade once made and hung seems to shrink a little. So adding it on now means it's more likely to fit spot on once made.
The fashion recently has been to fit decorative bay window rods. Especially here in the U.K. My advice is simple DON'T even the really good ones are real pain in the backside. They are far from easy to fit right. Then the curtains struggle to open and close using the special passing rings. So what do I recommend, well glad you asked. My favorite way of dressing a bay is to fit top boards. These are simply 6 inch by 1 inch timber boards. You fit them over your window on brackets just like fitting a shelf.
Then hang curtains from the underside of the boards on a curtain track. Then finally cover the top board with a fabric covered pelmet or as you Americans say Cornice. They can be made in all shapes and sizes and look ultra modern or traditional.
