Curtain pole advice needed.

Found 2nd Sep 2010
Does anyone know the standard distance a pole should be above the edge of the window recess and by how much the pole should overhang the recess by?

TIA.

There is no set height. It would depend on the type of curtains you are hanging
John Lewis website says this:

"To be sure of the best possible fit, take time to measure your window carefully. We suggest using a metal tape measure for accuracy. The first step is to decide whether you want your curtains to hang from a track or pole, both of which should be positioned 15cm (6 inches) above the window and extend 15-20cm (6-8 inches) either side."

Thank you both.
