# 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 walls***Measure in millimetres from A to B =**Measure in millimetres from B to C =***Diagonal***Measure in millimetres from A to C =*

**Along the Return walls too?**

**We will assume returns are 90° unless you tell us otherwise. **

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 =*

*For French Bay Window Poles*,

*the bracket plates are the “finials”. Once you’ve measured your bay window,*

*let us know where you’d like the bracket plates located*

*as these should not be on the bay corners*.

**Take measurements along the walls**where the pole is to fix and include the full length of each wall section**(even for ceiling fix poles).***We will work out the pole size to fit from these measurements.*- If necessary state the distance you’d like between the wall and the pole. The defaults are 45mm (16mm pole) and 50mm (25mm pole).
- 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. Please don’t round up measurements to nearest 0 or 5.
- Use a metal tape measure, held taut for straight lengths (fabric or fibre-glass tape flat along curved walls).
**For your sake and ours you must take the time to provide careful and accurate measurements. We won’t make bay poles unless we are confident they will fit!**

*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.
