Choosing the right Curtain Pole

When choosing a pole for your curtains, you need to firstly bear in mind the weight and style of your curtains as well as the shape of your windows. Light weight curtains can fit onto any diameter curtain pole but are generally better suited to thin poles with a diameter of 19mm or below. 28mm diameter poles are ideal for supporting most medium to heavy weight curtains, 35mm diameters for heavier fabrics and for very large full length curtains with heavy fabric and interlining we supply poles with diameters of up to 50mm for metal poles and 63mm for wood.

Our complete range includes curtain pole sets made from metal, wood or one of the many stylish wood effects. These popular poles are available in a large selection of colours and finishes, ensuring that there is something to suit all types of homes and interior design schemes.

Bay Window Poles Sets

Our best selling bay window curtain poles are usually supplied as a complete kit, with the special corner joints, passing rings and brackets included. These specialised fittings have been designed to allow the curtains to operate normally in the bay window. Conventional poles cannot be used for bay windows as they will not be able to fit around the corners of the bay. To view our complete range of curtain poles for bay windows please click here

Eyelet Poles

Poles for eyelet and tab top curtains are available in an assortment of colour finishes which include stylish finials to enhance the window treatment.
