We’re very lucky down here in the South West.  We have some of the best scenery in the British Isles, as seen in these two pictures from our recent short break in Cornwall. The main shot is of Honeywell Bay, which some may recognise from the TV series Poldark.  We…
Perfect Fit Blinds come in both Venetian and Pleated styles. Perfect Fit Blinds fit neatly against the glass of your UPVC windows and doors, taking up no sill room and giving a neat finish to the window or door. When the blinds are raised the Perfect Fit frame almost appears…

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…
