Measuring Heading Height
(ONLY Pencil Pleat, Double Pleat, Triple Pleat & Gathered Heading curtains)

Measuring the heading height and the curtain drop - Ada & Ina 

Heading height plus the drop equals the overall length of the curtains. For example Pencil Pleat curtains, with Heading height of 3 cm + Drop of 220 cm would mean the overall height of the curtains would be 223 cm.
The heading height is the distance from the eye to where you would like to top of your curtain to finish.

We recommend the heading height for a track should be to the top of the track to hide it. For a pole, we recommend a height of 2 cm above the curtain ring eye. Curtains do hang better with smaller headings.
