Child Friendly Blinds for Your Home

Child Friendly Blinds for Your Home

Tired of your kids pulling on the blinds and bending them? More worried about their safety around long, reachable cords? It’s time to get your home some child friendly blinds. Domir Blinds is the best source for child friendly blinds in Toronto and the GTA. Here’s what we have to offer for families like yours.

Covered Slats

To start, let’s look at the solutions to little hands that want to grab. It’s not uncommon for people’s metal, slatted blinds to get destroyed once they have a toddler in the house. After all, blinds look like something solid to hold onto, to the undiscerning eye. Plus, how is one to see outside without yanking the poor, abused slats out of the way? Children don’t realize the amount of damage they cause as they learn to understand the world around them. That’s why we have to surround them with furnishings that can withstand their torment.

One of the best ways to solve the slat-grabbing problem is to have blinds with no exposed slats. We have a few different types like this – most prominently, The Ninet. The Ninet is made of slats but also has two layers of sheer fabric, one on either side of the slats. This fabric covering not only offers privacy, it also deters little hands from getting a grip on the slats within.

Secured Cords

Next up, we need to talk about safety. Many blinds designs are not safe for small children. With long cords that reach to the floor, they pose a hazard of children getting wrapped up in them. While you can always hang excess cord length over the fascia, it’s easier and less prone to incident to buy child friendly blinds.

Once again, The Ninet is a great choice. These blinds come with a pulley cord that remains secured to the wall. This is much less likely to pose a risk to your child’s safety. Roller shades and screens also come with pulley cords. Not only are their cords safer, the shades and screens are also easy to clean and hard to damage. Therefore, if your child tries to see outside or play with the blinds, they’re not likely to do permanent harm.

Something More Sturdy

Want something more stylish and comfortable than roller screens or shades while still remaining sturdier than slatted blinds? Sheer vertical blinds are definitely worth considering. These blinds are comparable to curtains, though they run from floor to ceiling. These long, beautiful blinds come with two layers. One is a sheer screen, made to give you privacy in your home while still letting in light. The second layer blocks out light as well as the view. Sheer vertical blinds can be washed to keep them clean from dirty hands. They are also flexible, meaning no bent slats. There are no cords as they don’t need to be pulled up. It’s an all around win.

Stylish Blinds for An Unbeatable Price

Stylish Blinds for An Unbeatable Price

Tired of your blinds being cookie-cutter and lifeless? The standard, white, plastic or metal, slatted blinds are old news. Give yourself and your home some more stylish blinds by shopping Domir. It doesn’t matter what taste you have in interior design; we’ve got something for everyone. Check out some of our most stylish blinds below, and what makes them unforgettable.

Sheer Vertical Blinds

To start, let’s talk about blinds that have no slats at all. Domir Blinds’ sheer vertical blinds – or, Allusion blinds – are more like curtains than the standard blinds you’re so used to. These curtain-like blinds stand tall, from floor to ceiling, to cover windows of any size. Their luxurious appearance adds to the aesthetic of almost any kind of room. Plus, you can buy them in more than just white, which means a more personal touch.

We created Allusion blinds with many situations in mind; that’s why they’re made up of two different layers. Each layer has its own function. The first is sheer and screens sunlight. This layer allows you to see outside and let sunlight in without compromising your everyday privacy. Thick, quality fabric makes up the second layer. This layer blocks the view from both directions as well as keeping out sunlight. With both layers shut, you can darken the room. With just the sheet layer shut, you can let in light while keeping prying eyes out of your home. And, with all layers open, you can get clear, direct sunlight and allow an easy view from both directions.

The Ninet

Now, let’s talk slatted blinds. Slatted blinds are not all made the same. Ours are leaps and bounds better than the plain, standard, slatted blinds. For one, we have The Ninet. The Ninet is made up of slatted blinds, layered between two fabric panels. This gives them a similar appearance, overall, to honeycomb blinds. However, instead of having an uncontrolled stream of filtered light, you can also control the slatted interior to change how much light you’re getting. This makes them a fantastic choice for those who like having precision lighting.

They appear soft and clean-cut. That makes them great for casual homes that are meant to feel comfortable, but not luxurious.

Magic Lite

On the more sleek end of the slatted spectrum, we have Magic Lite. We make Magic Lite out of sturdy, wooden slats. These slats are flat and can overlap completely. This makes the Magic Lite great for precision lighting. You can go from complete exposure to complete blackout with a small adjustment.

These blinds are ideal for minimalist or country interiors. They pair well with other sleek features as well as soft features that need a stark, white contrast.

Blinds from the Manufacturer Vs. Blinds from the Store

Blinds from the Manufacturer Vs. Blinds from the Store

Considering getting new blinds for your home or business? Domir blinds is here today to tell you a little bit about why you should order blinds from the manufacturer instead of buying them in-stores. Let’s get started!

Bulk Orders

The first perk to ordering blinds from the manufacturer rather than in-stores is that you can order in bulk. For businesses like hotels or offices, this is much more convenient. Stores only have a limited amount of blinds – usually enough for homeowners and such. If you need a lot of blinds and you want them all at once, ordering from the manufacturer can guarantee you get as much as you need. 

Better Options

Plus, you won’t get this many options in-stores. When stores order their products, they pick and choose which products from the manufacturer fit in with their brand. That means some really great blinds designs fall by the wayside. When you pick a design from us, you get to look through all of our options and make custom orders. Many of our blinds can be ordered with custom colors on one or both sides. Plus, the fascia can also be customized. Don’t settle for a limited selection in-stores; see the whole range of options from the manufacturer. 

All in One Place

When you order from us, you can be sure we have everything you need for your blinds here as well. You can get motorization, custom colors, side channels, skylight blinds, and so much more. When buying blinds from a store, you might have to go elsewhere to find the accessories you need. That’s a lot more work when you could get the entire order done in one go with Domir.

Better Prices

One of the biggest and most important differences between manufacturer and in-store orders is the price. We, as the manufacturer, create all of the blinds in the area. Stores contact us to buy the stock they need for their store. In order to actually turn a profit, these stores will sell them for more than they paid us, the manufacturer. If they sold them at the same, low price we do, they wouldn’t make any money selling them.

So, when it comes time to make your order, make the cost-effective choice of cutting out the middleman. You don’t need to pay extra just for a more limited selection. When you order directly from Domir Blinds, you get the lowest price possible and are even eligible for cost cuts based on how big your order is. For businesses especially, it’s worth noting that orders over $500 can be cut by as much as 50% off. Now that’s what we call a great deal.

Easy Methods for Cleaning Blinds

Easy Methods for Cleaning Blinds

Blinds can quickly get dusty or dirty and leave your home looking all the worse for it. However, cleaning them can be really tricky. If you want cleaning blinds to be made easy, you’ve come to the right place! Domir Blinds being the blind professionals of Toronto, we know a thing or two about cleaning blinds. Here are the easiest methods for getting your blinds looking like new.

Sock Dusting

For many of us, metal or plastic slatted blinds are the way to go. These blinds may have been installed already when we moved in. Or, they may have just been the affordable option when we bought them. No matter the case, these blinds are notoriously dusty. Because they’re made up of so many different slats, they can be hard to dust without bending them. Luckily for you, there’s a simple method that almost anyone can do.

Grab yourself a spare sock that can be slipped over one hand. No need to find a loner as it can just be washed when you’re done. Next, pinch each slat between your sock-covered thumb and index finger and slide your sock across the entire slat. This is a very effective way to pick up dust from these somewhat touchy blinds. Plus, it doesn’t require any sprays, disassembly, or complex instructions.

Lint Rolling

For those of us who have fabric blinds, sock dusting isn’t really an option. Fabric blinds became a huge hit in the first decade of the 2000s. They look cozy, they diffuse light, and, well, they also collect a lot of dust. Because these blinds are usually a solid piece of fabric or two, there aren’t any slats to pinch.

Instead, buy yourself a cheap lint roller and run it over the surface of your blinds. When your blinds are completely extended, they should be relatively flat. Even if they still maintain some of their accordion shape, you can go over each row of fabric easily. The sticky lint roller will grab up most of the offending dust pretty effectively. Even if they’re not as clean as new, most of the remaining dust will be too small for the eye to really see.

Tub Soaking

Not all problems are dust related! Slatted kitchen blinds are often splattered with food or grease after years of doing dishes right in front of them. However, trying to lean over the sink to wipe at each individual spot is difficult for most people. Luckily, there’s a fairly easy solution!

  • Start by taking down your dirty blinds and bring them with you to the bathroom.
  • Fill your tub with about 4 inches of hot water.
  • While the tub is filling, add in some grease-cutting soap, like what you use to wash your dishes. Ensure you’ve added enough that the water gets a little sudsy.
  • Then, put your blinds into the tub to soak. Anywhere from 20-60 minutes may be enough to do the trick.
  • Once your blinds have had time to soak, you can use a cloth (or a sock) to go over each slat. Any food splatters or grease should come off easily. You may need to rinse the cloth throughout the cleaning process if there was a lot of grease on your blinds.
  • Last, drain the tub and use the shower head to rinse any remaining soap from the blinds.
  • Let them sit on a towel to drip dry for an hour or so and then hang them back up!
