Curtain Rods, Tracks and Poles
Spring Crest Curtains and Blinds offer a great selection of Curtain Rods, Curtain Tracks and Poles. We can assist you with a fully customised design to suit your window size, curtain style, decor or individual need and the range extends from a simple plain metal or timber track right through to fancy metal and custom painted wooden poles with finials and accessories.
The tracks you use in your home often depend on your personal style and taste and Spring Crest is here to help you with those choices. Some clients prefer a decorative track to be the feature of the window, with decorative finials, tiebacks etc. while others like the simple hidden track to have the curtain itself dominate the window. A designer blend and contrast of a black track on a white wall can look stunning if done correctly.
Ideally the curtain track, rod or pole should be decided in conjunction with the fabric used for the curtain. If you’re thinking of having different pleating styles and curtain poles throughout the house it’s wise to keep a continuous style within each individual room. There are many visual tricks we use to then “link” your rooms that use different fabrics, tracks or poles throughout the house. If you are having a pelmet or bulkhead the track will be hidden so a plain track is the most economical option.
S Fold or Ripple Fold Curtain Tracks – Sleek and subtle to the eye, the S Fold pleated curtain has a very sleek contemporary appearance with gently and continuously folded drapery from the beginning to the end.
You can have your curtain track “face fitted” – that is attached to the wall above the window architrave. Never fit your curtain hardware to the actual architrave. It can split the timber architrave; and it looks aesthetically better when fitted above. We usually fit the hardware about 60 – 100 mm above the architrave as this is where we can get good firm fixing by picking up the timber framing behind the plaster wall. You can also have your curtain hardware “top fixed” – this is attached to the ceiling. This can look fantastic and creates a hotel luxury aesthetic.
Always check that the brackets to be used for fixing the hardware are the colour you want. We often use black poles and rods but swap the brackets for white as it blends better with a light coloured wall. A black bracket would look hideous on a white wall and would draw the eye immediately away from the beautiful curtains and poles to the line of black brackets instead. Not a good look.
