Double curtain poles are great if your window’s overlooked or you want to add an extra layer of fabric to help prevent heat loss or draughts. A thicker pole with a 28mm diameter is for hanging your main, mediumweight curtains. While a thinner, 19mm-diameter pole sits behind the main pole and is for hanging lighter curtains in a fabric such as voile. You can then choose to have both sets of curtains open or closed, or just one of them closed. You get the privacy of net curtains but in a stylish, flexible form.
Available in a range of metal finishes, including stainless steel, chrome, brass and black nickel, we have a double curtain pole to suit any kind of interior. And, as there are two poles, there’s opportunity to mix and match fabrics. A simple white voile always looks elegant. But there are so many choices available, you could choose a coloured or patterned sheer fabric to complement or contrast with your main curtains. You could even choose an insulating fabric if adding warmth is your priority rather than privacy.
Just the right length for you
Our double curtain poles start at 120cm long and go right up to 480cm. It’s best, ideally, if your pole is at least 30cm wider than your window. Then you can pull your curtains away from the glass to let in maximum light – which is especially important if you plan to leave sheer curtains closed.
If we don’t stock the exact length you’re looking for, it’s no problem. It’s easy to cut our double curtain poles to size. If you order a longer double curtain pole and the two poles each arrive in two pieces, just remember to cut the same amount from each section. Then the two joints will line up in the middle.
A full kit so you can get started
Our double curtain pole kits curtain rings, brackets and finials (the decorative end pieces) for each pole. So you don’t need to order anything else to get on with putting up your pole and hanging your curtains. If you buy a longer length, each pole will arrive in two pieces with a joining piece and extra bracket.
