Curtain Pole Guide | Why Choose Curtain Poles Over Curtain Tracks?

Poles and tracks both essentially provide the same function of opening and closing your curtains, however they are also very different. For example, tracks are generally located behind the curtain heading and out of sight which is a good if you're just looking for a functional solution.

Curtain poles on the other hand are much more visible and can be a charming decorative feature in their own right, you can choose from a huge range of different materials, colours, and sizes, which is great, especially if you’ve already picked out your curtain fabric and need a pole and finial that complements it perfectly.
