Bay Window Options
After much consideration of the alternatives, this Paignton customer decided to got for 3 25mm Venetian Blinds to cover her 5 bay bedroom window. The reason for the 2 side Blinds each covering 2 windows was at the customers request.  The reason being it gave less spaces between Blinds, as…
I have finally reached the end of the building of my own extension. The final piece was the selection of Blinds. We decided on a bright colour as the rest of the large room was fairly neutral.  With a roller blind at the large kitchen window, we complimented it with…
My Golfing Genes
I’ve been a keen golfer since taking up the game at the age of about 13… Having maintained a handicap of 5 for the last 30 years or so, I recently found photographic evidence of my golfing heritage.  Clearing out my late mothers house I came across pictures of her…
After 4 months of living in a building site, our extension was finally completed, in time for Christmas. What a transformation! We’ve gone from a though lounge/diner and small kitchen to a decent sized lounge and a massive kitchen/dining/living space.  It’s been well worth all the upheaval and many thanks…

These days I don’t cover the Dartmouth area, due to volume of work in my main catchment of Torbay, Totnes, Newton Abbot & Teignbridge.  However, an old customer from Dartmouth had a problem with a Roller Blind I fitted. Basically the side control had malfunctioned after a couple of years. …
Wondering what to fit at the windows of your bay window. Verticals & Venetians are equally practical, but for a classy look why not go for Wooden Venetians as seen in this job in Babbacombe.  Both the lounge and bedroom fitted with White Wood Venetians with 50mm slats, stunning! If…
