Curtain Rods FAQs

How do I choose the correct size curtain pole?

The first step to determining the correct curtain pole size is to measure your window. Our handy guide to How to Measure Your Windows is a great starting point.

Once you know the width of your window, you can select the correct curtain rod length. At Spotlight, many of our curtain rod sets are expandable in size, meaning no cutting is required! Just ensure the width of your window falls between the minimum and maximum length of the pole.

The second consideration when it comes to curtain pole size is the diameter. Broadly speaking, the wider or heavier the curtain you're hanging, the wider the rod diameter is required to provide adequate support. Diameters of 22/25 mm or 25/28 mm are suited to heavier drapes like blockout curtains, whereas conduit rods of 16 mm are sufficient for shorter or narrower sheer curtains.

What are curtain rod finials?

Curtain finials are the ends of curtain rods. They provide the function of preventing curtains from sliding off the pole, but they are mostly a decorative feature that will add to the look of your home decor. Our rod sets come with included finials, and you can choose from a range of materials, colours and profiles including round and square.

How do I install a curtain rod?

Curtain poles or rods can be installed on the architrave (frame) of your window or placed a little above and to the side of the frame. Installing your curtain pole above your window frame can make your window appear taller, as well as allowing more light into your room when the curtains are open.

Spotlight's curtain rod sets come with all the included instructions, brackets and hardware like screws and plugs needed for installation. To correctly install your new curtain rod, you will need some basic tools such as a drill, measuring tape, pencil and a ladder. An extra pair of helping hands can also be of great assistance!
