Understanding Curtain Fullness and Curtain Width (Ungathered)

The type of heading you choose can sometimes effect the curtain’s look and cost. There are different fullness ratios for each heading type. You don’t have to worry. We will use the most suitable amount of fabric to create a fuller and luxury look.
















Example: The width of the curtain pole/track is 100cm (40"). 

Measure from the end of the tracks or the usable section of the pole between the 'finials'.
