How to Put Up a Recess Curtain Pole with Brackets

Our stunning recess curtain poles are handmade in our very own forge and have been designed to fit discreetly into a window recess, by utilising our specially designed recess brackets. As our poles are bespoke and made to measure, we will be able to fit any size of recess.

As fitting recess curtain poles might not be as straightforward as wall surface mounted curtain poles, we have produced a video to guide you through the process

In this video, Richard from Made by the Forge will show you how to install one of our wrought iron recess curtain poles into a recessed window. This quick and easy to follow demonstration will show you how to fit it with just one person.

Before you start to fit your curtain pole, you would make sure that you have the following items:

  • Recess brackets
  • Curtain pole
  • Screws
  • Wall plugs (depending on what you’re fixing to)
  • Drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Spirit level
  • Pencil

Although this step-by-step guide has been designed to show you everything you need to know when putting up your recess curtain pole, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly if you have any difficulties or would like to ask a question. You could also visit our FAQs page as well.

All of these videos can also be found on the Made by the Forge YouTube channel. Follow us on YouTube for updates.
