The pole is available in both 28mm to 35mm diameter. Standard eyelets are usually 44mm an will work very well with the 28mm eyelet bay pole. If you choose the 35mm pole then 50mm + eyelets are slightly better to allow them to move along easily.

Layout of the Bay Curtain Pole
For L shaped windows you will receive 3 end brackets in total. 2 to be positioned at the end of the longest pole and 1 to be positioned at the end of the shortest pole. The centre bracket is designed to blend into the pole and have a low impact discrete effect, whilst being very sturdy.
Unique Corner Piece & How to Bend the Corner
The corner piece has been produced to be able to be bent to the angle required for the bay window all the way up to 90 degrees. The best method is to hold the metal corner piece upto the window and slowly bend it to fit between the 2 straight lengths of pole. Then take down the 2 straight lengths and twist them together with the corner.
Remember whilst bending over your knee it is advisable to use a towel to stop the grooves within the unique corner not to dig into your skin and pinch. Ensure to bend the corner joint in the direction it is meant to be. Thus creating an internal bend.
The corner has had grooves cut out of it to enable it to be bent. IT is manufacutured to only be bent once with some adjutment. Please do not bend it back and forth as this will coporimise the strength of the corner. The advice is to mark the angle and then bend the corner close to what is required then adjust accordingly.
Position The Brackets for Eyelets and Curtain Rings.
If you are fitting the pole with a pair of end brackets then the right location is to have one curtain ring in between the finial and the bracket.
Eyelet Pole Brackets and Curtain Rings

As this will allow you to get a
rigid full length measurement.
The first step is to decide whether you want your curtains to hang from, whether you go for a curtain track or a curtain pole, both of which should be positioned 15cm (6 inches) above the window and extend 15-20cm (6-8 inches) either side.
You want to measure the total width of the track or pole, excluding the finials as these will not be covered. Then add a small amount on to allow for an overlap of your curtains.
When you are ready to measure, you have to make a decision about where you want the curtains to finish. The choices are whether to go to the sill, below the sill or to the floor. We suggest that:
- Sill length curtains finish 1.25cm (1/2 inch) above the sill.
- Curtains that fall below the sill should finish 15cm (6 inches) below or just above the radiator to stop heat loss.
- Floor length curtains finish 1 - 1.5cm (1/2 inch) from the floor (although you can create a shappy sheak look by having them puddled on the floor, but that is personal preference).
It is essential that you double and triple check your measurements as if you have measured incorrectly your curtains will not fit properly and if they are made to measure / custom drapes they cannot be changed.
Measure the exact width of the recess in three places; at the top of the recess, in the centre of the recess and near the bottom - then take the smallest size.
Measure the exact drop of the recess in three places on the left hand side of the recess, in the centre of the recess and on the right hand side of the recess - then take thesmallest size.
We will take one cm (half an inch) off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily. The amount of fabric required will be more than this finished size, This is to allow for fabric hemming.
Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm (3" - 6") whatever you think looks appropriate.
Measure the exact drop of the recess. The blind would be fitted above the recess, so check the space above and add an amount on to the drop – usually from 15-20cm (6" - 8")
These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind. The amount of fabric required will be more than this finished size this is to allow for hemming.
