Some people stay in one house for a lifetime, others are always on the move.  One such customer of mine, who I have fitted Blinds for all through about 6 or 7 house now, has said this is her final move?  We shall see.  Anyway was once again pleased to…
I recently fitted Roman Blinds, in 2 bay windows, for a customer in Paignton.  She decided she wanted the middle Blinds to be one colour, with the side ones contrasting, why not?  I think it worked really well and the customer was very pleased.  If you would like a quote,…
What stunning views from Beverley Holiday Park, in Paignton.  I recently supplied them with a large number of 25mm Venetians and Roller Blinds, to keep in stock to replace the existing cheaper ones when they expire. I also did some child safety work in a number of the log cabins…
Having fitted Blinds all through their home, Steve, at Pads And Paws, brought me in to put the finishing touch to his office refurbishment above his store in Preston, Paignton. The Vertical Blinds work really well giving both privacy and  adjustable sun shading.  If you would like some advice, or…
Devon in Springtime??
It’s not often we wake up to snow down here in Devon… This winter we had none, but come spring and we had 2 massive hits in a 2 week period.  First time snow has ever stopped me working on the English Riviera.  Thankfully, all gone now  and with summer…

Here is a picture of a lime green Cassette Roller Blind, recently fitted in Whidbourne Avenue, Torquay.  It may look quite bright, but with the rest of the kitchen very plain it really set off the window and made a feature of it. Good choice from the customer and she…
Sometimes the same type of Blind doesn’t suite all windows in a property. This customer, in Shaldon, wanted Wooden Venetian Blinds, but had 2 large patio door areas leading into the garden.  For these it was more practical to fit Vertical Blinds, as they are easier to operate when going…
Not once, but twice in March this year we had large snowfalls.  Both times the area was brought to a standstill, with schools and work places closed for at least a day on both occasions. At least it gave me a chance to catch up on paperwork and accounts, plus…
I recently replaced some tired old Verticals at St.Margaret’s Academy in Torquay. This time they went for Roller Blinds, as the window sills are often used for storage and Verticals didn’t suit.  They went for Guardian fabric as it is thick and hardwearing, allows some light in when down, but…
