Can you combine different blinds?

Sometimes the same type of Blind doesn’t suite all windows in a property.

This customer, in Shaldon, wanted Wooden Venetian Blinds, but had 2 large patio door areas leading into the garden.  For these it was more practical to fit Vertical Blinds, as they are easier to operate when going through the doors.

Wooden Venetians of this size would have been very heavy are more difficult to operate on a regular basis.  However, they had the Wooden Venetians throughout the rest of the property and were very happy with the result.

Springtime, English Riviera, Snow!!

Not once, but twice in March this year we had large snowfalls.  Both times the area was brought to a standstill, with schools and work places closed for at least a day on both occasions.

At least it gave me a chance to catch up on paperwork and accounts, plus writing a few of these blogs to keep you all informed.  If you would like a quote or some advice on Blinds, then fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

 

 

 

 

 

New Shading for School Classrooms

I recently replaced some tired old Verticals at St.Margaret’s Academy in Torquay.

This time they went for Roller Blinds, as the window sills are often used for storage and Verticals didn’t suit.  They went for Guardian fabric as it is thick and hardwearing, allows some light in when down, but enables them to see the white boards on a sunny day.

Work With A View

Just before finishing for Christmas, one of my last fittings was 2 very large roller blinds overlooking Torquay Harbour. It was a lovely winter’s day and what a stunning view to end the year.

Here’s a picture for my blog readers…

Feature Roller Blinds

Sometimes a Blind is just for sun protection or privacy, but other times it can become a feature of the room.  This picture blind is one of many similar in my range and finished of this redecorated bedroom perfectly.

Taped Wooden Venetian Blinds

Wooden Venetian Blinds are very popular these days and becoming more popular are the ones with ladder tapes.  These give the Blind a more classical look, as opposed to the ladder strings.  If you would like a quote for Wooden Venetians, or just some advice, then fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

New Conservatory Roof, New Blinds

I recently visited an old customer, who I fitted Roller Blinds for in her conservatory a few years ago.  The old Polycarbonate roof had been replaced with a glass one, but now need the added protection of Blinds.

 

To cut out glare and provide extra insulation I fitted Pleated Roof Blinds with solar reflective backing, which reduce glare and keep in heat.  I was also glad to see the Roller Blinds were standing the test of time and still looking and working well.  If you would like a quote, or just some advice, then fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Sad Loss Brought Back Good Memories

I was sad to here of the recent sudden passing of former Torquay United stalwart Ian Twitchen.  A wonderful servant to the club and one of the mainstays of the team my Dad managed in the mid seventies.  This is a picture of that team with my Dad bottom right and Ian Twitchen 2 to his right.

 

It brought back happy memories of Friday night victories in front of a regular crowd of 3500 to 4000 people.  Oh how they wish they could get crowds like that now.  Here’s hoping they can once again pull off the miracle of avoiding relegation.  Meanwhile if you would like a quote, or some advice on Blinds, filk out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

 

 

Over 40 Blinds in New Build

I recently fitted over 40 Blinds, of varying types, to a new build in Sandygate, Newton Abbot.  From Romans in the kitchen, to Wooden Venetians in the bedrooms, several Blackout Velux Rollers, a Waterproof Roller Blind in the wet room and finally Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds to ground floor windows, standard in the living rooms and blackout in  the bedrooms.  It was about 6 months from first contact to fitting, with the house being a shell without windows when I first visited.  It was great to see a property develop and be able to put the final touches that turned it into a home.

Perfect Fit with a Perfect View

It was a beautiful mid winters morning when I fitted these 13 Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds in Cockwood, near Dawlish.  As you can see stunning views back up the Exe towards Exeter.  Cheered up my customer as they had just returned from Australia, watching England lose the ashes.
