Bright colours can make a room

Here is a picture of a lime green Cassette Roller Blind, recently fitted in Whidbourne Avenue, Torquay.  It may look quite bright, but with the rest of the kitchen very plain it really set off the window and made a feature of it.

Good choice from the customer and she was very pleased with the result.  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.

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.

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.

First trip to new Wembley

My first visit to the new Wembley stadium was a nice Christmas present from my eldest son Matt and his wife Emma.

 

To make it better, my team West Ham, managed to hold Matts’ team Spurs, to a 1-1 draw.  Having been to a few matches at the old stadium I think the old had the better atmosphere, but the new one is very impressive.  If you would like a quote, or some advice, on Blinds, fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Utility Room Transformed

A customer recently asked me if I could do anything to make there utility room more homely.  2 long Verticals along the outside and then the doors and window at each end were covered with Perfect Fit 25mm Venetians.

 

The result was to turn a cold looking annexe into a warm cosy extension.  If you would like some advice or a quote, fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Perfect Fit & Romans transform new build

I’ve now fitted Blinds to several of the new builds on Torquay’s Primrose Hill.  Similar houses, but different types of Blinds depending on the customers desires.

 

The one pictured went for Roman Blinds in the lounge/dining/kitchen area with Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds to the 2 corner doored area. One in the lounge and one in the master bedroom.  The Romans add a classy touch to the windows while the Pleated Blinds are more practical on the doors.  If you would like a quote, or just some advice fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

 

Old Hotel to Family Home

An old Victorian hotel in Teignmouth was recently bought as a private residence.

As part of the make over Wooden Venetian Blinds were fitted to the many large windows.  As can be seen from the picture of one of the bays, they look really good and the customer was very happy with them.
