How to choose curtain headings

Tags: Made to Measure Curtains

Heading is the way the top of the curtain attaches to the poles or track. There are different headings you can choose for your curtains and all depend on your preference or the type of pole or track you are using. 


The type of heading you choose can sometimes affect the curtain’s look (to achieve a contemporary or a traditional style) and cost (some headings require more fabric and complicate processes than others).
