John Lewis Satin Steel Curtain Pole Kits, Dia.19mm
Having already purchased 2 of these poles for the bedrooms in my house, we wanted to get 2 more for the bay window and french window in the lounge. We bought the largest size and my husband cut them down to size, which he found relatively easy after measuring up. These poles look superb and are excellent value for money. We're both very pleased with our poles!

Very reasonably priced for the high quality product and it has very easily accessible extras that you may need.

Wish I'd read the reviews before buying
Very flimsy especially in the longer length. It is not until you open the wrapping that you see the instructions. The screws provided cannot be used with longer lengths unless they are fixed to a wooden batten. If you want to screw in to the wall you need to go and purchase longer screws. Not helpful.

These don't compare well with the pole kits we bought from JL a few years ago. They'll do, but the poles are a little flimsy and the brackets are so ugly. The outer brackets are hidden by the curtains, but the centre one, oh dear, the screws are exposed. I wish we could cover them somehow..

Surprisingly poor quality
I purchased a couple of these poles after reading the positive reviews. However I found them to be very poor quality. The poles scratch very easily and even minimal handling resulted in them being covered in scratches. The finials hung loosely from the ends, making the product look very cheap. I had to pull the ends off, secure the screw with sellotape and fit them back on before they looked at all decent. It was also not an easy task to cut the poles; pulling the end plug off and re-fitting the screws properly involved a lot of trial and error. Two hours later we managed to get these poles up! Would never buy again.

These curtain poles are excellent for light to medium weight curtains. I now have them in three of our bedrooms. They are sleek and stylish and complement any decor.

beautiful looking product
We wanted curtain poles which were stylish, contemporary and easy to fit and use. We are delighted with our choice; took a bit of time to cut the metal to fit , because we don't have proper tools for the job - but well worth the time.

Good looking and practical!
I bought two 3 meter rails - for wide windows in a one bed flat - one for the living room and one for the bedroom.
They were easy to fix and look modernly minimalist - a good heading for the long light voile curtains. However they appear to be plenty strong enough to take heavier curtains if needed.
