Measuring guide for Straight curtain poles
  • Measure the window width (or recess width).
  • Add on enough draw-back allowance each side for the curtains to clear the window as required. As a rule this would probably be 150mm to 200 mm per side. Others advise adding 10% of window width per side. It just depends on how wide and thick the curtains are. 
  • Add on the length of the chosen finials to get the overall length of the curtain pole. The finial lengths can be found here on the Curtain poles page.
  • Choose the finish (Beeswax, Traditional Black or Pewter)
  • If you require longer/shorter bracket projections please make sure we’re aware!


Make sure you have enough room and let us know if there are any obstructions (e.g. pipes, deep window frames, etc.) which might be in the way. We can produce special brackets if required. The standard gap between wall and pole is 45mm for 16mm diameter poles and 50mm gap for 25mm diameter poles.

We can make poles of virtually any length but are restricted by the lengths UPS will carry so poles over 1.8 m will be in two sections with a Joining Centre Bracket. As an example,  3m pole would be supplied in 2 x 1.5 m lengths.
