On 8th February 2018 Shutters 'n' Blinds featured on the all new Peter Andre's 60 Minute Makeover television show. This episode was filmed locally in Hounslow and also featured Interior Designer Linda Barker.
In this particular episode we assisted making over a house for Debbie Holloway, a fantastic lady who has spent her whole life working and caring for her disabled son, who has Downs Syndrome. She also coached the local disabled football club, but this all changed 4 years ago when she suffered a major stroke leaving her totally paralyzed on her left side. Debbie is now housebound and totally reliant on her husband Larry. She can’t get up the stairs to the bedroom, so Larry has turned the downstairs dining room into a bedroom for her. This room is attached to the kitchen so Debbie has no privacy at all. The local Council will not install a stair lift or provide ramps to the front and back of the house. This family was in so much in need of a home makeover and we were delighted to be able to donate our products and time for this very worthy family.
We were asked to help out by supplying and installing remote operated Motorised Blinds which would double up as a partition wall (something that had not been done before) in between her bedroom and the kitchen.
We also assisted with most other trades and regulars on the show that were shown on this episode of the 60 Minute Makeover, including:
- cutting down and programming a motorised Venetian blind
- fitting of front bay curtain pole with curtains and
