Jones Estate 50mm Handcrafted Wooden Curtain Poles

This 50mm range of Jones handcrafted curtain poles comes in 12 of the most popular interior decor colours trending now.  All of the curtain poles are stained and painted by hand to deliver a truly stunning range.  The colours have been well thought through and work well with a variety of interior design styles and colour schemes.  The dark colour of the Juniper (purple) and Claret (red) poles work particularly well with the plethora of dark, bold fabrics launching from the fabric houses.  The range is extremely versatile as the more subtle, light grey hue of Shingle allows a more understated look so that your curtains can steal the spotlight!  Please view our YouTube video for more information and to see the colours in more detail.

Lead-time: Please note Jones hold some components painted / stained to the available colours in stock, however if any item does need painting / staining, as these are finished by hand in Jones’ workshop in Nottingham there is a 2-3 week lead-time.  Once an order is placed we will be in touch to confirm a delivery date.  If the goods are in stock in the colour / finish you require delivery will be 1-2 days.

Please note these poles measure 48-50mm which are within Jones’ manufacturing tolerances. Please note the 6m poles are only suitable for light to medium weight curtains as the poles may bow with the weight of heavier curtains.  Additional brackets can be used to support the poles but the rings won’t passover the brackets so 4 curtains would be required.

Curtain Pole Contents

This pole set comes complete with 2 Ribbed Ball style finials, pole(s), brackets and rings. You can choose between standard cup style and more decorative acanthus style brackets. Additional brackets and rings can be purchased separately.  10 rings per metre are supplied as standard.  Poles lengths exclude finials and poles 240cm and over are supplied with a centre bracket.  Poles over 300cm are supplied in two pieces with a joining screw.  Recess and metal brackets are also available. If you are interested in these alternative brackets please call us and we can provide a quotation for you. Co-ordinating holdbacks and draw rods are also available.  Please see accessories below.

This pole can be cut to your exact size for a small charge and painted in a bespoke paint colour of your choice.  This can work well if you want to match to a feature wall, painted furniture or kitchen units.  Please click on this link for more information on the Jones Bespoke Painted curtain pole.

Curtain Inspiration and Advice!

Eyelet Curtains

The eyelet size on readymade eyelet curtains is 40mm and as such isn’t compatible with a 50mm pole.  If you are considering eyelet curtains we offer the option of a 66mm eyelet, as part of our made to measure curtain making service, which is an ideal size for a 50mm curtain pole.  Eyelet curtains are however more popular on a metal pole.  Shop our range of wider diameter metal curtain poles.

For bespoke, made to measure curtains view our range of fabrics from leading fabric houses that can be made up into beautiful curtains with a variety of curtain heading and lining options.  Read our blog posts on our hand made curtains and roman blind service and ways to shop curtains with The Home Of Interiors.

Curtain Heading Recommendations

A 50mm curtain pole works exceptionally well with tall ceilings or extra wide windows and with heavy fabrics.  Floor length, interlined curtains complement the wide diameter of this pole to deliver an opulent, yet well proportioned look.

Readymade pencil pleat curtains are suitable, however made to measure curtains that can be interlined are more suited to the look of this pole to deliver a real wow statement at your window.

Double or Triple Pinch Pleat Heading

A double or triple pinch pleat curtain heading is a popular choice with floor length, interlined, curtains that will drape beautifully.  A double pinch pleat offers a more modern look, with a triple pinch pleat delivering a window dressing that is timeless and luxurious.

Eyelet Curtain Heading

Eyelet curtains are a popular choice for contemporary styling and are better suited to metal curtain poles.  You can specify a 66mm eyelet when ordering our made to measure eyelet curtains which are an ideal size for a 50mm curtain pole.

Measuring Guide for a Curtain Pole:

Decide where the pole is to be positioned.  This is usually above the window with the pole extending either side beyond the window.

Step 1: Measure the width of your window.

how to measure for a curtain pole

Step 2: The chart below provides guidance for making an allowance either side of your window for your curtain stack (shown as ‘B’ on the diagram above).  This is particularly important if you want the curtains to clear the glazing when open.  Please note the curtain heading, fabric thickness and lining specification will affect the width of the stack back.  How much you would like the curtains to clear the window is down to personal preference.  The chart below is however a good guide.

Step 3: Add the width of your window onto the B measurement (x2 for a pair of curtains) to give you a finished pole length (A).

Please note this is just a guide so we recommend choosing the pole length available within your preferred curtain pole range that best suits your requirements.  All poles can be cut to size with a junior hacksaw.  We offer a cut to size service on the Jones Handcrafted range.

Please read our measuring guide blog post for further information.

For precision measuring we recommend the GATORTAPE Window Furnishing Precision Tape Measure.
