We are here to answer any question you may have about our curtain poles. Please use our comprehensive questions and answers section below to help you. Should you need more help or advice then please don't hesitate to contact us.


Replacing an existing curtain pole

If replacing an existing curtain rail, simply measure your existing curtain pole not including any finials.

Measuring for a new curtain pole

Decide where you would like to position your curtain pole before measuring. This is usually 15cm (6") above the window.

Please use our diagram below as a guide.

Curtain Pole Measuring Guide

  • Start by measuring the width of your window (A).
  • To this measurement add B twice. Usually, B is 15cm (6")  and provides space needed for the curtains to be drawn back either side of the window.
  • So to get the total length of your pole use A + B + B.

An important note...the curtain pole measurements on our website are for the pole only. If you are limited for space either side of your window, please take the size of finials which fit either side of the pole into consideration.

Don't worry! Most of our poles can easily be trimmed down to length using a fine toothed hacksaw. Just order the lenth of pole that is slightly longer than what you need.
