Vertical blinds are currently the most popular choice of window covering.
There are many reasons for this, but the main two are their versatility and the cost. At the moment verticals are the least expensive way of covering a window. Vertical blinds come in hundreds of colours, both plain and patterned. They are also available in vinyl fabrics, particularly suited for kitchens and bathrooms and blackout fabrics, which are ideal for bedrooms.
There are also solid vinyl slats, which combine blackout with ease of cleaning.
Vertical blind headrails are available in white, brown, silver, black or champagne gold. All cords and chains are secured with the latest child safety features. However, we also have the Louvolite Monocommand system, which avoids the needs for cords and chains and so makes them ideal where young children are around.
The attached photo shows a large vertical blind recently fitted to a block of flats, overlooking the sea front, in Torquay.
As always, if you would like any advise or a price, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form on the website.
Since 31st March 2013 all blinds fitted have to conform with new Child Safety Laws, regarding cords and chains.
All our Blinds conform to EN13120 for Child Safety.
However, blinds fitted, before these new laws, were normally fitted with free hanging looped cords and chains, in the case of venetian blinds, very long cords when the Blinds were pulled up.
At Dave Musgrove Blinds we can now make all your existing blinds child-safe for just a minimal cost.
Also, if you are buying new Blinds, we will make any existing blinds you have child-safe free of charge, as a thank you for ordering your new blinds.

Many of my customers have some awe inspiring views across Torbay, and the surrounding areas of South Devon. A common question I get asked is “will these blinds not spoil my view?”.
This picture showing a great peep of Torquay harbour gives a perfect example and how fitting vertical blinds doesn’t have to spoil your beautiful view. You can turn to any angle to filter or block the sun. Or simply tilt at just the right angle to maintain privacy, but still be able to enjoy the view.
Thinking about saving money by investing in some of the cheap “plastic” venetian blinds on the market?
These blinds can be purchased for anything between £10 & £25. However, proper venetian blinds have steel top & bottom rails, and aluminium slats.
The “plastic” versions are all plastic, including the headrails. I have often been called out to repair a blind and got there to find a “plastic” venetian, where the headrail has snapped under the strain of the blind. Unfortunately there is no repair. These “plastic” blinds also do not like the sun. “Plastic” venetian blinds that gets regular exposure to the sun will warp & buckle within just a few short months. So be warned, “plastic” venetian blinds are a false economy, and now you know why!
Here at Dave Musgrove Blinds I supply & fit blinds for all types of Skylight windows. We have Velux & Fakro blinds as well as our own version of the same thing, which are a little less expensive than the originals.
These blinds are available as Rollers, Venetian & Pleated with various levels of light filtration, all the way to blackout.
