Both decorative and minimal, curtain poles come in all shapes and sizes. They are available in a variety of diameters and with a large selection of curtain finials at the end of the pole. Normally made of either metal or wood, the material and colour of the curtain pole should blend with the decor of the room as well as the finial being appropriate to the period or style of the room.

Wood is extremely versatile as it can be stained, painted, gilded or antiqued, making it the choice of material used for curtain poles for generations. This is still very much the case today, but the connotations of tradition still resides with a wooden pole, making it still the perfect choice for traditional or country decors. Wooden poles come in a variety of diameters and with the simplest of ball finials to the most decadent of hand carved finials. A simple pine curtain pole will bring a country cottage feel to the decor, whereas a pole that matches the wooden flooring and furniture will give a harmonious finish to the room. Our range of wooden curtain poles includes various natural wood finishes (eg Oak, Beech, Chestnut and Pine) and special effect finishes like white, silver, gold and much more
Your choice of curtain pole should also complement your style of decor. An elegant brass curtain pole with an extravagant decorative finial will be better suited to a more formal or traditional setting, whereas a bright chrome pole with a minimal eclectic finial will be better suited to a contemporary interior. Nearly all our curtain poles are available with matching holdbacks, ideal for controlling your curtains in a windy window or for a busy patio door. Curtain holdbacks will also offer you the option of arranging your curtains in formal pleats or a decorative swag, maximising light by keeping the curtains away from the window opening during the day. This range of metal curtain poles is one of our most popular due to it's huge choice of styles and metals. We have curtain poles in the following metallic finishes; Chrome, Steel and Silver, Brass and Gold, Black Metal, Bronze and Copper and Painted or Special effect.
Huge advances in the manufacturing of curtain poles means that many curtain poles are now available with the option of “smart” corner joints, brackets and passing rings which not only removes the nightmare of trying to find an attractive pole for your bay window, but also allows the same pole to be fitted to standard windows in the room. Bay windows are a beautiful feature in a room and as such, should be dressed to maximise the amount of light and space they have created in the room. Curtains fitted across the front of the bay will restrict the floor area of the room at night unless they are used as dressed curtains in conjunction with some type of blind that is fitted into the bay. Many of these bay window kits can be wall or ceiling fixed depending on the requirements of the window. Our two most popular products in this range are the 3 sided bay poles and 5 sided bay poles.
Gone are the days of net curtains at busy or overlooked windows. The modern solution is to fit sheer roller blinds or a double curtain pole. The outer pole supports the main curtains and the inner pole supports sheer or voile curtains, making for a stunning layered window treatment. Curtains fitted to this type of curtain pole often look particularly attractive with the outer curtains held away from the window opening with a pair of matching holdbacks during the day, leaving the secondary layer of curtaining to soften or camouflage the view, particularly useful for an overlooked bedroom or living room window.
Your windows are often the main focal point of the room, not only due to their size, but also instinctively our eyes are drawn to the light. You will need to decide on the type of atmosphere you want to create in the room; short curtains will blend with an informal setting, whereas full length curtains will add sophistication to your decor. Our curtains are supplied with a standard or a blackout lining and with three curtain heading options. Read more
As the name suggests, this type of curtain heading is when the gathering of the curtains forms uniform vertical pleats. With this type of heading, you can also create Wave Heading curtains by not pull the gathering strings. This is a very informal style of curtain heading, but care must be taken to evenly space the curtain hooks to ensure that the folds of the curtains are uniform. Our range of curtains with pencil pleat headings is growing all the time and we can make them to your precise size and requirments
This is a very modern curtain option, the curtains being gathered in a form of waves as the curtain pole threaded through the eyelets cause the curtains to concertina backwards and forwards across the curtain pole. For a perfect finish, ensure that the metallic finish of the eyelet rings match the colour of the curtain pole. We have a huge range of highest quality fabrics ready to be custom made in to eyelet heading curtains just for you
This type of curtain heading produces an elegant fan of pleats with a flat space between them. Pinch pleat headings tend to be for the more traditional home, so are particularly well suited to a wooden curtain pole with a decorative finial and matching holdbacks. When the curtains are open, the flat fold should be to the back of the curtain heading, leaving the pinch pleats to be clearly visible along the top of the curtains.
As one of the UK's longest established and leading retailers of blinds you would expect us to have one of the largest selections of blinds in the widest range of styles and designs. We have Made to Measure Blinds available in all the styles listed below from to Roller to Roman and Venetian to Vertical. Read more
If you wish to choose a blind that is more akin to curtains, then a Roman Blind makes the perfect choice. When the blind is open, it forms attractive folds at the top of the window and when it is closed, it becomes a flat panel of fabric which enables you to fully appreciate the design of the fabric of the blind. All our roman blinds are fully lined and are offered with both a standard and a blackout lining. This type of lining is especially useful for bedroom and office windows where daylight levels often need to be controlled. Some of our blinds also have the option of a beaded or braided edge along the bottom. Many of our roman blinds are also available as curtains, ideal if you wish to have a dual window treatment. This type of blind is also ideally suited to a bay window, with the blind being fitted to the flat sections of the bay. All our Roman Blinds are available made to measure, just for you.
Our made to measure roller blinds are not only very practical, being ideal for kitchens and bathrooms, especially with the moisture resistant option, but will also look very attractive in living rooms or bedrooms. They can be used on their own or combined with curtains to create an eye-catching layered window treatment. Many of our roller blind fabric options are also available as vertical blinds, giving the option of perhaps a vertical blind for a patio door matching the roller blind for the window. Our roller blinds can be finished with attractive shaped bottoms, or decorated with beads, eyelets or braids. Some of these blinds also have a variety of special properties such as blackout, dim out or are fire retardant
Available in both wood and metal, Venetian blinds can be chic and minimal, especially using the popular 25mm slat size with modern paint and metallic finishes. Alternatively they will capture the timeless appeal of a period or Asian style decor using the 50mm slat size and traditional wood or wood effect finishes. Depending on the angle of the tilt of the blades of the blind, a venetian blind offers you control, not only of your privacy, but also on the level of daylight in the room. As with all our made to measure blinds, these metal venetian blinds are available in a stunning colour palette and in a range of gloss, matt, metallic and wood grain finishes. The wooden venetian blinds are available in all the popular wood colours to ensure a perfect match for your wooden flooring, kitchen units or furniture as well as being offered in various shades of white and of course, ever popular, black
Being both practical and stylish, a vertical blind not offers the benefit of controlling the amount of light and heat in a room, but also makes a very attractive design statement. These popular made to measure blinds can be fitted from floor to ceiling for conservatories or patio doors and are equally suitable for small windows, both as an exact or recess blind. Vertical blinds are a modern day answer to old fashioned net curtains, ideal for windows that are overlooked or that perhaps have an unwelcome view. Also they are the only type of blind that can be fitted to a curved bay window. They are available in an extensive colour palette and with various textured finishes. If you select a colourful finish, it will cast an attractive colour hue in the room, or alternatively if a more neutral colour choice is made, it will create a soft and gentle ambience. Many of our vertical blinds are also available as roller blinds, offering you the choice of multiple window types being finished in the same fabric
