Ladder Tapes Or Strings

Wooden Venetian Blinds have become very popular over recent years. However, there are decisions to be made when making your choice. Firstly, do you want it to look like wood, with many wood grains available or maybe to look a bit like a shutter, where white is the popular choice.

Then there is the choice between ladder tapes and ladder strings.

This is the the support system that the slats sit on and are tilted by. Strings are discreet and subtle, while some prefer the tapes as they give the blind more of the look of a shutter. Either way the choice is yours. If you would like a quote on Wooden Venetian Blinds give us a call or fill out the form on this page and we will call you back.

 

Mid-week trip to North Devon

Nick and I usually play golf on a Wednesday morning.  It helps break the week up and keep us fresh for work.  Recently we moved it to late afternoon for a trip to Royal North Devon Golf Club, at Westward Ho!

One for the beautiful scenery and secondly because we both had up coming big competitions there.

Both county events, Nicks for normal men and mine for the more senior golfers.  Then it was back down the Link Road and ready for work the next day.

Shaped Windows / Gable Ends

Architects seem to have a thing these days for putting shaped windows into their designs.

All very well and often stunning looking. However,  you’re probably thinking “can I put blinds at that  window?”.  Well, the answer is yes.  Blinds of most types can be made in various shapes and sizes, to suit all situations.

So if you have a strange shaped window and want some advice on how you could shade it, give us a call or fill out the form on this page and we will call you back.

Quote On A Boat

Well there’s something I’ve not done before…

Recently got a call for a quote in Torquay.  When I asked for the address I was told a boat in the inner harbour.  Oh well, why not?

Anyway I came away with a quote for some tensioned Venetian and pleated blinds.

I’ll need to fit on a calm day, I’m not the best on water!

New Floating Pleated Blinds

Not sure if you want your pleated blinds coming down from the top, or up from the bottom?  Worry no more.

With the new floating blind you can have both options within the same blind.

Shading sun from the top, a bit of privacy from the bottom or totally block out the window?  The choice is yours.

Child Safety Update

 

With the child safety regulations having been in force for a few years now,  there are some problems that crop up from time to time.

One is that some customers do not like us drilling in their UPVC windows to fit the child safety cleats.  This has now been overcome with the new stick on cleats.

These are fully tested to take the strain of all our blinds and can now be fitted where drilling is not desired.

Good enough For A Glossy Magazine

We take pictures of most of our jobs when finished.

Sometimes the photos come out ok and sometimes not.
We’re blinds fitters, not photographers.

This one however looks like a staged shot for a glossy magazine.

However, it was just a quick snap at the end of a long job;
10 Verticals, 6 Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds, a Roller Blind and 3 Romans in Paignton, South Devon.

Yearly Trip To Twickenhan

As Exeter Chief Fans my partner and I seem to be going to Twickenham every June for the Rugby Premiership Play Off Final.

That’s 4 years running Exeter have been in the final, unfortunately only winning once, but a great achievement nonetheless.  From a Championship side 10 years ago to regular table toppers, plus being the only club in the premiership not in debt, some going!

Meanwhile back to work and if you would like a quote or just some advice, give us a call or fill out the form on this page and we will call you back within 24 hours.
