  • How long to make pelmet?

    I have not made a pelmet before, but I have been asked by a friend to make one, there is already a small curtain pole in place which is 242cm in length, is it possible to put a pelmet over this and how long should I make it?

      Make sure you measure the current pole carefully when planning the pelmet board. It should be wide and deep enough for the pelmet to stay clear of the existing pole and curtains (assuming the curtains will be opened and closed). If the current pole has large finials you might need swap them for something smaller so that the pelmet does not end up a lot wider than the curtains (you will need some sort of end stop to prevent the curtain rings falling off the end of the pole.

      Also consider where the brackets for the pole are when placing the brackets for the pelmet board.
