How Changing Curtains install a bay pole

Bay window poles can be fitted to window surrounds, walls or ceilings. If your wall is not good for fixing to (eg lath and plaster) a batten may be required.

The pictures below show Changing Curtains fitting a bay window curtain pole which is available in 4 colours with numerous finial options. We do not recommend this item for DIY fitting because it can be tricky, it is not a job for the hopeful, it requires competence in tool handling skills - that said we have supplied this product to competent fitters who have not had a problem - contact us by email for details.

We must have counted right but
curtains have been in a bag

and centres back

Arrange pleats from top down

Not too bad
