    Measuring heading height

    The heading height is the distance from the eye to where you want the top of your curtain to be.

    For tracks, we suggest a heading height just above the top of your track so that it is not visible above the top of the curtain.

    For poles, we suggest a heading height from 2cm above the eye to just above your curtain pole according to your own taste. Curtains will hang best with a smaller heading height.
