First we will start with the curtains. Even if you are using plain curtain poles, curtains can be hung in different ways with a little creative sewing. 

These curtains made from beautiful  geometric print fabrics are sewn with back tabs so the pole is hidden when the curtains are closed. The fabric really becomes the focal point.

Another type of curtain is the roman blind, which also looks clean and stylish. A roman blind stacks up evenly into folded sections when being opened. 

Roman blinds can be found in a variety of styles. Both  Looped Roman Blinds  and  Classic Roman Blinds are designed to create depth and dimension.

If you already have a curtain pole, adding stylish  curtain pole finials to the end of the curtain poles can have a dramatic effect on the look of the window treatment. 

For example, Antique fence rails can be incorporated into curtain pole details for a romantic farmhouse touch.

Copper pipes make great curtain poles. They are especially useful when you need angled curtain poles for situations such as bay windows. 

Galvanised pipes offer an industrial and rustic style loved by so many people. Use pipes from ¾” to 1” diameter and matching flange to make great curtain poles and to connect angled sections.

Another great, and free material for curtain poles are simply branches with all the side twigs trimmed away and cut to the right length. Leave them natural or  paint them with your favourite colours.



There are many great-looking  curtain rings to choose from to match and enhance the look of whichever curtain pole you choose.
