So, you’ve decided that you need some curtains for your home but are wondering what heading to choose. It’s an important decision as the heading will determine the style of the curtains and, along with your chosen fabric, make the most impact. Headings control the fullness of the curtains and can provide a traditional, formal look or something more relaxed and contemporary.
Before deciding on a heading it’s important to assess the amount of stack back in the room, that is the space either side of the windows that the curtains take up when they’re fully open. Some headings stack into a much smaller space which is particularly useful if you have a small window or a room with poor natural light. The fabric and lining you choose will also have a bearing on the space the curtains take up when open with heavier fabrics such as velvets and interlined curtains taking up more room than lighter fabrics and unlined curtains.
