22 Blinds in Kingsbridge designer home

It’s really nice,sometimes, to be involved in a house from the start. I was recently asked to come up with some ideas and quote for a new build in Kingsbridge.

 

It is a beautiful family home with lots of windows, but most needed some type of covering/shading. After a couple of visits with the owners we finally fitted the following:- Blackout Vertical Blinds to all bedrooms, special effects 25mm Venetian Blinds to bathrooms, ensuites & cloakrooms, 25mm Venetians to the kitchen area and Vertical Blinds to the Dining room & Lounge, along with the side windows in the entrance hall and 1st floor landing area. The only windows not covered were the feature triangular topped windows at the front of the property, which as they were in the entrance & landing didn’t need covering, plus it was felt any covering would take away from there feature effect.

Sloping Vertical Blinds

Having a sloping window doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fully operational Blind on it. On a recent job in Ilsham Valley, Torquay, I had to fit 4 Sloping Vertical Blinds in one room. They all fully retract and tilt both ways. Due to the weight of the largest one, it required a heavy duty spring tensioner for the cord, to keep the Blind back when retracted. Fortunately, I had come across this before and so knew where to source the type of tensioner required.

Repairs, new blinds and a view to die for

One of my recent jobs was part of a large renovation of a big property, overlooking the River Dart, at Stoke Gabriel. At the start of the renovations I removed 14 Venetian Blinds, all to be cleaned, re strung and re fitted, when the house was finished. Added to this were a number of new Venetian Blinds and some Vertical Blinds. The renovations took a while, but now that they are finished, it is a stunning property, with panoramic views of the River Dart and surrounding countryside and of course some beautiful Blinds.

Golf… It’s only a game, right?

When not working my favourite activity is golf. I would say spending time with my partner, but she’d tell you I was lying. Then again I come behind the dog with her, so fair enough!
I first played golf on a family holiday in Newquay in 1971. I played with my Dad on day one, then borrowed his clubs to play several more times on that holiday on my own. That was it, I was hooked.

Now in my fifties, I’ve managed to maintain a 5 handicap for over 25 years, not too bad. I’ve always loved sport, playing football & cricket for many years, but golf will take me through to old age. The most precious times now on the golf course are the days spent playing with my two sons Matt & Nick. Matt plays for fun and gives me a good game with a shot a hole, but with Nick the competition is quite fierce. Before travelling around the world Nick was also playing with a handicap of 5 and our matches with each other are always do or die!

It’s a great game and definitely character building.

Football legend is my inspiration

What inspires me to be the way I am, ie; honest, trustworthy, friendly & professional at all times?

The answer is my Father, Malcolm Musgrove.

Taken from us in 2007, but still an inspiration to me,on a daily basis. He spent all his working life in the world of professional football, as a player, coach, manager & finally a physiotherapist. He was a speedy winger in the original West Ham “academy” of the 50’s, playing with the likes of Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters, John Bond & Ken Brown, to name just a few. He finished his career with 99 league & cup goals, still in the top ten West Ham all time scorers. He went on to coach & manage at Orient, Charlton, Aston Villa, Leicester, Man United, Torquay, Exeter, Plymouth & Shrewsbury as well as spells in the USA & Qatar. However, unlike a lot of today’s so called “superstars”, Dad was always polite, courteous & generous with supporters, always finding time to sign an autograph or have a chat, a true gent. In fact true gent is a term so many use when remembering him.

I like to think that I have inherited his ways and that is why I always have time for my customers. Obviously, my work is sales led, but I am always willing to discuss a customer’s requirements, whether or not it leads to a sale. Firstly it makes my day more enjoyable, but also you may want something in the future or recommend me to someone else. Whatever the reason, that’s just the way I am and I hope as customers it is appreciated.

Housed in a Cassette, which can be plain white or contain a matching or contrasting fabric. To operate you simply pull the Blind down to the desired level, then to go up just a slight pull & release and the Blind slowly rises on it’s own.

Are Your Blinds Child Safe?

Did you know, that since April 2014, all Blinds fitted have to comply with British Safety Standard EN13120 for Child Safety. This means all looped cords & chains have to be secured at a safe height and all single cords tied off to a cleat, again at a safe height.
At 7AM yesterday morning I went into Croft Hall Medical Practice and made all their existing Blinds, in public areas, child safe. This caused them little inconvenience, as I was gone before surgery opened and was relatively inexpensive for them.
Are all your existing Blinds Child Safe? If not, give me a call, or fill out the form on this page and I can give you a free, no obligation, quote to bring all your Blinds up to the required standard and give you added peace of mind, regarding your children’s safety.
