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

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.

Wooden Shutters

Wooden shutters have many benefits..

They can add character and charm to a cottage, as in the ones recently fitted in Salcombe, in the photo on this blog. They are excellent for retaining heat within the home as well as adding to the security of your home.

Wooden shutters can be shut with the slats adjusted to filter light, as required, or they can be fully opened back to let all the light in that the window was meant for. For more details, or a quote, fill in the form on this web site or give me a call.

Not exactly our main product line but something we do have a vast selection of are our curtain tracks and poles.

Conservatory Roof Blinds

Conservatory Roof Blinds

Conservatory too hot?

Although Blinds around the sides of your conservatory look nice and provide excellent shading and privacy, most of the heat comes through the roof.

The simple answer is to fit pleated roof-blinds. These simple, yet effective blinds come in various degrees of shading with various options regarding heat reflective coatings. They can also be made to virtually any shape or size of conservatory.

Simply operated by a pole, they slide up and down smoothly. So, from a simple square roof, as in the photo of some pleated blinds fitted in Babbacombe.

Spring Cleaning

Spring is just around the corner and it’s the time we start looking at things around the house to clean, repair or even replace. .

When it comes to blinds, all options are available with Dave Musgrove Blinds. I’m always happy to supply & fit new blinds, but  equally I’m happy and available for repairing & cleaning your old blinds.

I can repair all types of blinds, from a simple broken cord to replacement of components.

The cleaning service applies to metal venetian blinds only. You’d be amazed how an old venetian blinds, with dirty, fraying cords, can be brought back to life by a clean and cord replacement and all at the fraction of the cost of a new one. What’s more, most repairs can be carried out on site, with venetian cleaning requiring removal with normal return the same day.

So, if you want your blinds sprucing up for spring, or just want to replace them, give me a call or fill out the form ion this web site and I will get back to you.
