How to Put Up a Curtain Pole with Brackets

In this short video, Richard from Made by The Forge takes you through how to install your new iron curtain pole, complete with brackets, rings and finials.

Before you begin, you will need the following items:

  • Full curtain pole set & accessories
    • Curtain pole
    • Curtain rings
    • Curtain pole brackets
    • Finials
    • Screws
    • Allen key
  • Drill
  • Tape measure
  • Spirit level
  • Screwdriver
  • Pencil

We advise that the curtain pole rests 15cm above the top of the window to minimise any excess light that could potentially sneak past your curtain edges. If there is not enough space, mount your curtain pole halfway between the top of the window frame and the ceiling.

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