“Perfect Fit” with a perfect view!

What a stunning view! Unfortunately, being South East facing, this conservatory, in Maidencombe, near Torquay, gets a lot of sun for large parts of the day.

So, to shade the sun, but not obscure any of the view when the sun wasn’t out, “Perfect Fit” Pleated Blinds were ideal. One of the windows was too large for a standard tensioned Pleated Blind, but I overcame the problem by fitting a freehanging Pleated Blind, within a Perfect Fit frame.


Apart from one hanging cord, the difference is hardly noticeable and the Blind works perfectly.

30 year old steps bite the dust

I’ve had trusty old set of aluminium steps since I started nearly 30 years ago. Due to wear & tear and a few sharp edges, they were consigned to the scrap heap today after ripping two pairs of jeans & cutting my knee!


The enclosed picture shows the smart new, BS approved, steps that joined my team today. Looking forward to using them tomorrow when I’ve got a roller blind, several wooden Venetians & lots of pleated roof blinds to fit.

Working with The National Trust – Printed Blinds

I have just completed a contract with Brightsea Print Group, to supply and fit 6 Roller Blinds for The National Trust, at Lydford Gorge on Dartmoor.

As can be seen from the pictures, the blinds were all digitally printed with The National Trust logo, in various sizes, as requested by The National Trust themselves..

Many thanks to John Smith, at Brightsea, for considering me for this project and hopefully I can look forward to working again with both Brightsea and The National Trust.


Printed blinds are not something I undertake every day but certainly an option where if required, for any more info on these, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Wooden Venetian Blinds

Wooden venetian blinds come in a variety of colours and wood grains.  Also, as seen in the accompanying photos, they can be fitted with ladder “tapes” as opposed to ladder braid, to give that more classic look.

These were part of an order fitted recently in Watcombe, Torquay. They also come in  4 different slat widths, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm and contoured 64mm.  So whatever your wooden venetian blind requirements, give me a ring, or fill out the form on this web site for a call back, or just some advice.20141218_150338614_iOS


Vertical Blinds in Bay Windows

Bay windows can often be seen as awkward to fit anything to, but here, at Dave Musgrove Blinds, we have many solutions. The most common is to fit vertical blinds, which can be fitted in a number of ways:-

1. Individual blinds to each window section.
2. Covering smaller angles with fewer blinds, as in the 3 fitted near Cockington, Torquay, in the accompanying photo.
3. A single vertical blind fitted to a curved headrail, following the curve of the bay.

So, if you have a bay and are not sure how to shade or cover the windows, give me a call, or fill in the form on this web site and I will come back to you to arrange a quote or just some advice.



Perfect Fit Blinds

Although covered in a previous blog, I thought I’d bring to your attention a different way Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds can be utilised.

The 6 blinds fitted recently on the Shaldon Road, just outside Newton Abbot, were actually fitted upside down. No, not my mistake, but at the request of the customer, as they had a need to just cover the lower half of their windows at certain times.

So, whether with perfect fit, or any blinds, if you have a particular request, let me know and I will try to find a solution. If you have a problem window, or windows, give me a call for some advice or fill out the form on this web site for a call back.
