How to measure for a one corner bay window pole…

Here’s how to measure up for a curtain pole made to fit a one corner bay configuration or similar.

You can find  information about bay window poles in general here: About Bay Curtain poles

Different curtain pole styles and options can be found here: Curtain Pole Styles

Along the Return walls too?

If you’d like the pole to continue around the return walls please also measure:

Measure in millimetres from 1 to A =
Measure in millimetres from 2 to F =


  • Take measurements along the walls at pole fixing height and include the full length of each wall section (even for ceiling fix poles).
  • If necessary state the distance you’d like between the wall and the pole (the default is 45mm)
  • If necessary state where you’d like the finial to end (the default is the mouth of the bay). The poles can have return bends too.
  • Measure in millimetres as errors can accumulate and please don’t assume opposites are equal as they quite often aren’t.
  • Use a  metal tape measure, held taut for straight lengths (fabric or fibre-glass tape flat along curved walls).

You’ll need someone to give you a hand especially for the diagonals but just measure the walls as we’ll calculate the allowances for brackets.

We can make a pole fit with remarkably little space for brackets but please let us know if there are any potential issues.


How much will it cost?

There’s a price calculator which will give you a good idea of the cost too.
