# How to measure a six corner bay

## ( 7 sided bay window )

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

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 =*

*Measure in millimetres from C to D =*

*Measure in millimetres from D to E =*

*Measure in millimetres from E to F =*

*Measure in millimetres from F to G =*

*Measure in millimetres from G to H =*

**Diagonals**

*Measure in millimetres from A to E =*

*Measure in millimetres from A to F =*

*Measure in millimetres from A to G =*

*Measure in millimetres from H to B =*

*Measure in millimetres from H to C =*

*Measure in millimetres from H to D =*

**Across the front**

*Measure in millimetres from A to H =*

**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.

*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.
