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.


We have a complete guide on how to measure your window for your new curtain poles. Simply go through the steps in the guide and you'll have your measurements calculated with ease!

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.

The simple answer is no. We are an online business and to make sure you get the best prices possible, we are unable to help you with installation.

All of our products come with installation instructions and include all fixtures and fittings.

Geat question! The measurements on the website are for the lenght of the pole only. The finial length is not included in the length. Each finial has a different length, which you can find within the main description of each product.

Always choose the longer pole length if you are unsure as to which pole length you need, as all our poles can be easily cut down to length.

For example, if the curtain pole you are looking at is specified as 200cm, that means that the full length of the pole is 200cm. You then need to add the length of the finial on each side to get the complete length. The finial may be 10cm in length, which would give you a complete length of 220cm in this example.

This depends on the length of pole that you are ordering. Most longer poles come in two pieces, with a connector and 3rd bracket for the joint, which should be placed at the centre of your window.

Each product on our website has a 'Specification' table within the full description. This table will tell you which lengths come as a single piece and which lengths come in two pieces. 

When cutting down poles that are in two pieces, remember to cut the same amount of each length to ensure that the joint stays at the centre of your window.
