What Are the Best Blinds for Sliding Glass Doors?

Do you have some sliding glass doors that need covering? Domir Blinds is here to help. If you’ve never had to buy blinds for sliding glass doors before, you might be unsure of where to start. Therefore, we want to make that learning process easier for you. Here are some of the best blinds for sliding glass doors.

Individual Needs

The first thing to note about blinds for sliding glass doors is that the best choice really depends on someone’s individual needs. So, the first step in choosing is determining the most important things for your home: precision lighting control or comfort.

Precision lighting is the ability to control exactly how much sunlight exposure your room gets. Blinds that are more comfortable will be more in tune with sliding glass door movement and ease of use. If you like being able to choose complete darkness, complete exposure, or anywhere in-between, precision lighting is the best choice for you. If you’re more interested in quiet, privacy, and a soft appearance, comfort is more your style. Here are two types of blinds for sliding glass doors that fit neatly into these categories.

Magic Lite Blinds

Magic Lite blinds are the ideal choice for those looking for precision lighting control. They’re built with flat, overlapping slats. These slats are much wider and thicker than those in standard, metal blinds. When overlapping, they can bring your room to complete darkness. Or, if you want things to be a bit brighter, you can open the slats for complete exposure. 

This flexibility in lighting control isn’t the only thing that makes Magic Lite a great choice. Magic Lite blinds also offer a sense of minimalist design. The straight, flat slats, most popularly bought in white, look great with most interiors. They clean lines in the design look especially good in contemporary, minimalist, or sleek-styled homes. However, just because these styles are what Magic Lite matches best with, doesn’t mean it lacks the flexibility to go with other styles. Paired with more country or primitive styles, the Magic Lite can give off a shutter-like impression.

Sheer Vertical Blinds

If comfort is more your priority, sheer vertical blinds are the superior choice. These blinds have a similar design to curtains, but come with more control and privacy.

While curtains are typically made to block out most light when closed, or none when open, sheer vertical blinds are different. Sheer vertical blinds come in two layers of fabric. With both layers closed, the sun is completely blocked out. This effect is akin to that of blackout curtains. However, if you only want direct sunlight blocked out, simply pull open the thicker layer.

With the light-blocking layer of fabric pulled open, the sheer layer is left to filter direct sun while letting in plenty of light. This protects your home from UV rays, which prevents sun bleaching and damage to skin and plants.

The sheer layer also provides privacy. You can see outdoors, but those passing by outside will not be able to see in. This layer, even by itself, is superior to traditional curtains.

Nursery Blinds That Help with Daytime Naps

Nursery Blinds That Help with Daytime Naps

Having a baby at home can be a real challenge, especially if you have inefficient, standard blinds. Standard blinds pose all kinds of hazards to toddlers, but how about their effect during infancy? Let’s take a moment to talk about how nursery blinds can affect a baby’s ability to nap during the day and how Domir can help.

Circadian Rhythm

Have you ever heard of circadian rhythm? That’s the name of your notorious ‘internal clock.’ Your circadian rhythm is what makes you sleepy when the sun goes down and what wakes you up when it rises. Not everyone has a circadian rhythm that does that, as the circadian rhythm is actually pretty easy to mess up.

One thing that can mess up the circadian rhythm is sleeping with the lights on or doing wakeful activities in the dark. Your brain begins associating these light levels with the activity taking place and then doesn’t go into the proper wake or sleep mode when the lighting changes.

Because of this, it’s important that, growing up, children are given a consistent difference between nighttime and daytime lighting. This helps them develop a strong circadian rhythm, allowing them better sleep and a more easily-adhered-to schedule. 

Standard Blinds

Because standard blinds are not made with good lighting control in mind, they let in a lot of light during the day. Therefore, if you put your infant down for a nap in the middle of the day, the room is going to be fairly illuminated. This can disrupt the newly-developing rhythm your baby is acquiring and lead to trouble sleeping at night, fear of the dark, and sleep pattern issues in the years to come.

By choosing nursery blinds that allow precision light control, you can completely darken the nursery before putting your infant down for a nap. Of course, some dull lights on a mobile or crib attachment won’t cause any issues and will allow them the ability to see their surroundings a bit more. However, the bright light of day, signaling awake-time, will be kept at bay. Domir has many options for blinds that can achieve this. Let’s see what some of those options are.

Precision Light Control

There are many styles of blinds that are able to black out a room during the day. Here are the ones you can find at Domir Blinds.

Shades

Roller shades are simple. They’re the kind of blinds you see in classrooms – solid sheets of material that roll up at the top. These are just as great as nursery blinds. When pulled down, they cover the window seamlessly, except for at their sides. If you’re aiming for complete darkness, side channels, which attach to the window frame, will get rid of any gaps where light could sneak through.

Magic Lite

Magic Lite is a chic and attractive design. This design is made with wide, completely overlapping slats. These slats, when controlled, can open completely to allow complete exposure. Or, if desired, can overlap completely to block all light from entering the room.

Shop Domir

When you shop Domir Blinds, you’re buying directly from the manufacturer. That means you cut out the middleman costs added on by distributors. Instead of paying more to give outlet stores a profit, put in your order to Domir today. We look forward to assisting you in improving the quality and comfort of your home’s lighting.

What Makes the Best Quality in Precision Blinds?

What Makes the Best Quality in Precision Blinds?

If you’ve been living your whole life with the same, simple blinds, you might not realize what you’re missing out on. Blinds can be so much more than thin, metal slats or a honeycomb shade. They can provide precision light control. This might not seem like an important feature, but you would be surprised how it can improve your life. Here’s how precision blinds can help you and what makes them great.

Blinds at Home

If you spend a lot of time at home, like most people, you’ve probably come across something bothersome with your blinds on more than one occasion. Let us jog your memory. 

  • Ever want to watch TV and have to fight with a ray of sunlight? Closing the blinds may block out most direct sunlight, but it can’t keep sun from coming through those holes where the slats are strung up. 
  • If you’ve ever had to drape a blanket over your window, your blinds need to be replaced. You should never have to rely on alternative coverings – that’s what your blinds are for!
  • Ever have a hard time seeing your computer screen because the blinds didn’t block out enough light? Direct rays and brightness alone can make seeing your screen difficult.
  • Have you had blankets or clothes fade or get sun bleached because of the direct sunlight in your bedroom? This should be a non-issue if your blinds are doing their job.

We’ve built precision blinds to overcome all of these problems.

Blinds at Work

Blinds at work rarely bring up unique problems from those found in the home. However, screen visibility is even more vital in the workplace. If you’re the owner of an office, you owe your employees an environment that they can work in without interruption or hassle. 

If you have yourself a private office, you may not even know your employees are struggling with light interference. They may feel it’s too petty to bring up. Check in with your employees and ask them if they need more light control in their work environment. These blinds at work will not only improve your employees’ quality of life, it will help them be their most productive with ease.

Precision Blinds

We’ve designed precision blinds to allow complete light control. When you have precision blinds installed, you can easily go from complete exposure to complete darkness – even at midday!

The question is, what makes blinds “precision”? Is there some kind of fancy requirement that separates precision blinds from average ones? No! The answer is, the ability to completely control your light exposure is what makes them precision. The more you can control your lighting, the more quality your precision blinds.

If you want your blinds to do their job and control the lighting in your home or office, we have two recommendations for you.

  1. The Ninet is great for people with casual lighting needs who are more interested in regulation and light flow than in exposure extremes. Like standard blinds, we make The Ninet with metal slats. However, there is a sheer layer of fabric on either side, filtering out UV rays and allowing a more consistent flow of light. Plus, you maintain the control you have with regular, slatted blinds to block out most of it or let most of it in.
  2. Magic Lite, on the other hand, focuses on complete control of direct exposure. These blinds are made with wide, flat slates that will take you from a room filled with direct sunlight to complete darkness in the flick of a wrist.

When you’re ready to buy yourself precision blinds, give us a call at Domir Blinds and we’ll point you in the right direction.

How Do Motorized Blinds Work?

How Do Motorized Blinds Work?

If you don’t tend to keep up on the newest technology, you might not know about motorized blinds. It’s pretty clear from the name that motorized blinds work more automatically than the typical, manual blinds. However, there’s a bit more to them than just knowing they’re run by a motor. How do motorized blinds work? Let’s take a look.

Remote Control

Motorized blinds aren’t just automatic, they’re remote. By using an app on your cell phone or other smart device, you can adjust your blinds from anywhere. You don’t have to be within range of them. You can check whether your blinds got put down from halfway across the globe!

Safety and Security

This might sound unnecessary and excessive, but motorized blinds actually have a lot of great safety and security applications. For example, they keep would-be burglars from seeing the contents of your home or business.

Did you know that most robberies take place in homes where the windows are uncovered most of the time? Burglars stake out houses based on the perceived value of the contents. Therefore, hiding the contents of your home, makes a huge difference. During the daytime, seeing in through your home’s windows is difficult. However, once the sun sets and your interior lights are brighter than the outdoors, burglars can see everything.

If you prefer your flatscreen and console game collection to remain untouched, putting your blinds down when the sun sets each night is vital. What easier way to do that than with motorized blinds?

Convenience

Because motorized blinds are controlled via app, you can put your blinds up or down from anywhere. Put them down from across the room or from bed at night. If you’re worried you forgot to put them down before leaving on vacation, simply check the app from the car or hotel room.

Accessibility

Convenience isn’t the only important part of being able to control motorized blinds from a distance. This is also massively important to accessibility. Accessibility is what makes it possible for something to be used by or benefit marginalized people, such as those with disabilities.

The disabled community includes people with both physical and mental illnesses. Plus, what benefits the disabled community also benefits the elderly. If you use a mobility aid, sometimes getting support from the mobility aid limits your ability to mess with the cords of your blinds. Being able to put them up or down from a seated position is an incredibly important matter of accessibility. 

If you have a mental illness or disability, it may frequently impact your short term memory. Forget to put the blinds down until twenty minutes after you’ve gotten comfortable in bed? When you suddenly remember, instead of getting back up and walking across the house, simply pull out your phone and put them down at a distance.
