Curtain Pole Finishes

In this video, Richard from Made by the Forge explains the different types of finishes that can be applied to our handmade curtain poles. The finishes are all lovely but the do affect the overall look and texture of the poles so it all depends on the look and feel you are trying to achieve in your decor.

Our beeswax finish is a classic wax finish applied shortly after the pole is removed from heat and allowed to cool slightly. The natural beeswax finish is applied manually and results in  a gun metal grey finish with lots of texture and character. The beeswax finish is only available for our 20mm curtain poles.

Our matt black finish is a spray painted finish that is uniformly applied to the entire curtain pole, resulting in a smooth feel and consistent colour throughout the entire curtain pole. The matt black finish can be applied to both our 20mm and 25mm curtain poles.
