    Bay Windows PVC Frames & Venetian Blinds Faff!

    I'm guessing from the suggestions I've had so far, nobody thinks the Venetian route is the one really?

    Bay Windows PVC Frames & Venetian Blinds Faff!

    Thanks Gazman16. I've incorrectly said that we had integral blinds when we actually have perfectFit blinds in our patio door windows (they are also actually French doors, buts that's besides the point). So again, it's definitely a thought but we did want the larger Venetian look to cover the...

    Bay Windows PVC Frames & Venetian Blinds Faff!

    Thanks for the suggestion. We have some of those at the back in our patio window and although they would actually be a solution, we're really after the Venetian look in this front room. I'll mention that to the missus though.

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Just to let you all know, I finally got round to installing the TV into the wall. To be honest, I still haven't fitted it fully so it's flush with the hole I created for it to go in but I'll do this eventually. The final result looks like this...

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Well it's all been installed now (apart from the tv). The infra red sensor was put up so the sensors is in the underside of the wall where the upper part of the wall has a slight lip to accommodate the frame of the top of the wall. Going to get the tv put in and tested as soon as I get a free...

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Now, for me, that's an option but with my missus being accident prone... It just isn't the one! A permanent solution with no moving parts is the way I have to do things in my house.

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    I actually have one installed in the cabinet I bought for my ensuite. I think it's a great idea.

    Ok, so I just bought the Infra Red Switch and I'll let you all know how it goes but any pointers before I install will be great.

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    I'm hoping to go with the infra red proximity switch but is there anything else I need to consider with that? I've run a couple of 2.5 T&E cables behind the frame (behind the board in the photo) and these were going to be spurred (hope that's the right terminology) off the socket upstairs in...

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Thanks - these are definitely more like what I was after. I never thought of the simple timer plug adaptor... it's simple, cheap and would work.

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Yup! But it's a small trade-off for being able to live without being forced to watch Coronation Street or Eastenders in another room that I'm in. The agreement (in my mind) is that she can watch that chaff in there and take her time!

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Thanks for that. I reckon the FCU would only get slightly steamed up but definitely isn't within a zone. I really do want to make it even a little more protected than just a switch though. Also, my Mrs didn't like the idea of basically a light switch (the size of it being the problem) on that...

    A switch to power a Bathroom TV off - help needed

    Firstly, I'll start by saying that I have no electrical skills apart from basic changing a socket skills... I have a small bathroom that I've decided to put a waterproof TV in. The TV is going to go in the centre of a stud frame attached to a brick wall. The wall has been boarded and will...
