STRAIGHT POLES

CUSTOM POLE MEASUREMENT

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR CUSTOM POLE LENGTHsee diagram

Measure your window recess (A) cm

Paul Christian recommends that your curtains don’t sit across the window when they are drawn back, so you can gain the maximum amount of light when the curtains are open.

Your made-to-measure pole needs to run past the Window Recess (A)
to create a Stack Back (B).

The chart above below gives the optimum Stack Back for pairs of curtains.

Window Recess  Stack Back 
A B
120 cm 20cm
150 cm 30cm
175 cm 40cm

You may not have this space on the sides of your windows,
and there might be more space one side than the other.
Measure the maximum amount possible and make it the same
for both sides if you require an even pair of curtains.

EXAMPLE ORDER:

Window Recess measures 150cm = A

Recommended Stack Back for recess of 150cm is 30cm = B

Custom Pole length = A + 2B = 150 + (2 x 30cm) = 210cm

(not including length of finials)

Your made-to-measure pole will be professionally cut to your custom length.  

For a custom pole length of 210cm you need to order a pole 'up to 300cm' 
and enter 210cm in the custom pole length box

You can always send in your drawings to paul@paulchristian.online and we can advise you.

 

WHICH DIAMETER TO ORDER?diameters

There is a choice of 2 diameters for the pole you order. Choose...
19mm for light weight lined curtains 
25mm for medium weight lined curtains

FINIAL LENGTHS
The length of the finials is not included in your custom pole length.
The finials will add length to your pole so you 
need to bear this in mind if close to a wall.

BAY WINDOW POLES

Use the bay checker app available for iphone and ipad (also available for android devices). The app will tell you if you’ve measured correctly. Press SAVE and email the sizes to paul@paulchristian.online 

BAY CHECKER APP

When measuring a bay window, measure past the window recess (A) as much as possible on the sides to create a stack back (B) for the curtain. This gets the fabric back off the glazed area as much as possible, framing the window and making the window look bigger. Remember to measure the wall size.

NOTE: the option on the app for a continuous curve bay pole does NOT apply for this product - select pic matching above.
