Our Austrian curtain lady came to measure up today and was highly enthusiastic about your craftsmanship."Almost a shame to hang the curtains on them, the rods look so good as they are!" was her comment – praise indeed!”

Tips and Requirements

Things to consider before starting the measurements

Measuring up for a bay window curtain pole

You will need paper, a pencil, a metal measuring tape, a stepladder (optional depending on the size of the bay window) and a friend. We strongly advise you to measure with a friend as accuracy is hugely important. With the right friend, this may even be fun.

Never assume that what look like symmetrical areas will be symmetrical and therefore share identical measurements. They never, ever do.

Measure in millimetres for the highest accuracy and never take a reading from a bent tape measure. If a spot is hard to get at, start the measurement at the hard to get at area. Bending results in inaccurate measurements.

To make sure each measurement is accurate, draw on the wall a pencil line which you can easily clean off later.

Measure to where you want the finials to end.

OK, ready? Now click on the bay diagram that most resembles your bay to submit your measurements.

Please note the following:

  • Passing brackets cannot be used with eyelet curtains
  • Most bays will need five brackets in total, two standard (end), two passing, and one centre bracket. If in doubt please phone and ask. 
  • We guarantee the fit on all of our ironwork including bay poles but only if accurate measurements have been provided. Please ensure you measure accurately.

If there is a reason none of the diagrams resembles your bay window and you are unable to generate a quote please do send us an email with pictures for us to work out the price for you or Contact us on 01473 487118

Remember, not every window is suitable for a curtain pole mounted on the room facing surface of the wall. For tighter spaces, please visit our recess curtain pole section and find your perfect fit.
