Four bend bay corded track – Five day turnaround in Balham SW12

Today we fit a bespoke made Silent Gliss system 3000 track for a bay window in Balham. Our customer rang in after being told by John Lewis that she’d have to have a total of 14 weeks to get a four bend bespoke track just like the one in the photos below. Wow 14weeks!!!

Having understood her reasons for a speedy turnaround we assured our client that our promise is a total turnaround of 5working days. We pride in ourselves in not only delivering quality but also being very efficient in speedy turnarounds. The world is moving too fast nowadays and time is everything.

This four bend bay windows isn’t easy to measure for so we made sure our cross measurements were precise to the mm. A Silent Gliss system 3000 corded on both sides is a perfect fit for this window and able to handle the curtains with ease. We finish off by hanging existing curtains which complete the room with warmth.

A very happy customer. A very productive day for us.

Its no big deal. But it matters.

Bay windows in Double Duty corded curtain tracks supplied and fitted in Pimlico SW1P

Today we fit some double duty curtain rails from Integra for a property in London SW1P. Our client was concerned about the condition of original curtain rails that had inherited from the previous owners. To be fair the original rails were old, rotten and broken.

We suggested that its time to invest in some professional range curtain rails made to order. We agreed on a heavy duty metal corded rail for all three windows and two of which were two bend bays. Integra products are fantastic for long range value. A double duty is fit for heavy curtains and build to last for years and years.

As a result we have another happy client and another happy ending 🙂

We are proud to have made a small difference for the better in Pimlico…

Antique bronze 28mm metal pole fitted in Isleworth

Antique bronze 28mm metal detectors poles fitted in Isleworth. With gorgeous titan style finials.

Our client in Isleworth reached out to us because she was in need of some window solutions for her guest bedroom. When we first arrived to carry out an inspection of the job we noticed the windows currently had a very old vertical blind that was no longer functional.

Mrs A wanted to change the feel of this guest room by adding some curtains to soften and warm the feel of the room. Indeed we agreed and suggested a metal pole in a bronze finish to compliment her existing curtains colours. We presented a catalogue of options and in the end she decided on a Universal 28mm antique bronze but with titan finish finials. Brilliant choice. Classy and elegant.

The job took no more than an hour and half and we have ourselves another happy customer.

Have you ever stopped and wondered about what drives you to do what you do? Do you know what is the difference between leverage and drive?

No matter what it is that you do in life, whether you are an athlete, a writer or a businessman, there is an emotional side behind everything we do. But most of us look to ignore this component since we are so busy getting the job done! Admittedly we have been guilty of this in the past, so we are not pointing any fingers…:)

However, if we were to just pause and pay attention for a moment, we will discover that this is secret that not only fulfils us, but fuels us as people. There comes a point when if you do something again and again without any meaning attached to it, you lose interest. You lose your drive! Unfortunately, this a common story for far too many people who seem to lose their drive and purpose in their work.

Great wisdom traditions teach that the purpose of life is always to be found in service. If you can find a way to better the lives of other people and look to offer yourself for something which serves the greater good, you will be living your purpose.

At CFL we believe that although our work may not seem like much from the outside in we see it different. We see it as much more than just a means to an end. Our work goes beyond just measuring and fitting curtains, blind tracks or poles. We don’t see ourselves as just handymen who fit curtains and blinds…instead we notice the little things and see our efforts as a contribution in some way, be it small or big…it doesn’t matter. But how you ask?

Well first we understand that every time a customer picks up the phone to ring us they have a reason for doing so. They are looking to resolve or improve a situation in their lives. Some have just moved into a lovely new home and want to create their dream living room or bedroom! Others have entered a new chapter in their lives and wish to re-create their environment to reflect their new bliss. Yet some may be in dis-comfort with their current situation and require a better solution be it a repair to existing systems or recycling old ones! Not to mention our service to the trade including award winning interior designers & architects. No matter what the specific reason for reaching out to us, we see it as our duty to serve. We understand that our customers have a need to better their lives in some way.

This is what fuels us, this is the driving force behind everything that we do as a team. Our mission is to ease and improve the lives of our customers, even if it is in a small basic way. You see everything in life contributes even the littlest things, just making someone smile is a contribution. We are passionate about our work simply because we have found meaning in it. It’s no wonder why we love doing what we do!

We hope this will inspire everyone out there who currently seem to have lost their drive, wondering where it has gone! Look for meaning in what you do. If you can’t find a meaning, then create one. If you can find a way to serve others and contribute their wellbeing, you will be living your purpose.

Reputation is everything!

We believe that reputation follows you no matter how hard you try to dodge it. It is paramount to us that every single day when we put on our work gear, we must deliver better than the day before. As the saying goes ‘you’re only as good as your last job’. Henry Ford said “You can’t build a reputation on what you are doing to do”. We understand this means that one cannot speak of great effort that is yet to take place in order to compensate for lacking standards in the present. Our team is dedicated to building a reputation that speaks for itself because our mission is to make a difference through excellent service. Great wisdom traditions teach that the purpose of life is always to be found in service. This is how we live.

Is your window area limiting your options of having a pole fitted? No space to face fix a pole & don’t fancy a track option?

If you want to hang curtains, but don’t want an unsightly track,these ceiling fix poles are a new innovation from Walcot House. Using a flush fix solution the pole fixes right up to the ceiling, leaving no gap, with all the brackets hidden in a groove which runs along the top of the pole. Brilliant isn’t it!

This idea is perfect for installations above bi-fold or sliding doors, the ceiling fix pole has been designed specifically for those instances where there is no space to fix to the wall, yet a track just won’t do. Considering that nowadays most new build properties have very limited options for those of us who still prefer to hang curtains on a lovely decorative pole, finally there is hope. We’re loving this,and will be recommending to our clients.
