Why Are Sheer Vertical Blinds Better Than Curtains?

Why Are Sheer Vertical Blinds Better Than Curtains?

Have you heard about sheer vertical blinds? If not, you’re in for a treat. Sheer vertical blinds are very similar to curtains in their appearance. The question is: why are sheer vertical blinds better than curtains? They look similar, but do they function the same way? Let’s dive in and see what sets these two window coverings apart.


The first thing we should talk about is appearance. As you know, curtains are typically a large square or rectangular piece of fabric. This fabric may fold over at the top, to allow a rod to be put through. Or, it may be outfitted with metal rings to allow an alternating fold and a rod to pass through. Curtains can come in many different colors and styles. What do sheer vertical blinds have that curtains don’t?

In terms of appearance, sheer vertical blinds look almost exactly the same as curtains. This is actually a plus, since the main benefit of curtains is their attractive appearance. However, sheer vertical blinds take the concept of curtains to the next level.

Light Blocking

What makes sheer vertical blinds better than curtains? The first thing is their ability to block light. When you buy curtains, you don’t typically expect them to block out sunlight unless you buy special, blackout curtains. Those are a lot more expensive than standard curtains, but at least they do their job. 

Sheer vertical blinds, however, are a reasonable price and give you the best of both worlds. If you like sunlight to be blocked out entirely, they’ll serve you well. However, if you like a little bit of sunshine here and there, they’ve got you covered there as well.

Sheer vertical blinds are made up of two layers. The first layer is a sheer fabric that’s made to filter sunlight. That means it blocks out harmful UV rays and prevents direct sunlight from wreaking havoc on your electronic screen visibility. The second layer is a blackout fabric. With both layers closed, the sun won’t be bothering you at all. This is ideal for those who work night shift or young families with children who still take naps.


The next thing that makes sheer vertical blinds better than curtains is the way they improve your privacy. Curtains can only be opened or closed. You can see out or you can’t. When using the first layer in sheer vertical blinds, you’re able to see out through the sheer layer, but those outside can’t see in. This boost in privacy makes summer days a lot more tolerable.


Finally, the last thing that makes sheer vertical blinds superior, is the quality. Standard curtains are not exactly high quality. They’re usually made with cheap fabrics that may be layered multiple times to block out light. However, multiple layers of fabric, sewn together, make curtains more rigid and hard to keep open. Plus, it looks a lot less attractive than a dense fabric that drapes beautifully like you’ll find in sheer vertical blinds.

Print On Blinds and Their Effect on Small Businesses

Print On Blinds and Their Effect on Small Businesses

Small businesses are a cornerstone of our economy. However, even so, they struggle to compete against large chains. When someone needs to buy something, there is almost always a big brand name that pops into their head right away. Because of that, small businesses may struggle to succeed. In order to beat out the big brands they’re competing with, small businesses need to become well known. Fortunately, there’s a great way to get the attention of locals, and it all starts with Domir’s print on blinds.

What Are Print On Blinds?

Like your business, Domir Blinds is local to Toronto. We rely on locals to spread a good word for us so that we can compete with big name hardware stores. What sets us apart from hardware stores is that blinds are our specialty. We’re a manufacturer of blinds, which means we know our stuff, and we charge less than third party stores.

One of our most successful blind designs is our print on blinds. What are print on blinds? They’re the same type of blind as roller shades, but have a custom design printed onto them. This makes it possible to order custom blinds with your logo, brand imaging, store name, or sales deals printed on to them.

Print On Blinds and Their Effect on Small Businesses

While many people have seen print on blinds without really thinking about them, we can’t ignore print on blinds and their effect on small businesses. The effect goes unnoticed to the average passerby, but is huge to the owner of said business.

When you rely on print on blinds, you get a number of positive outcomes. For example, if you choose to print your store name and logo on your print on blinds, both become recognizable to locals. A small business can be easy to pass by and go unnoticed for years without any noticeable branding on the front of it. When people see your logo and store name in color across your front window, they’ll remember it. Your business will suddenly stand out and become memorable. 

Print on blinds aren’t just good for displaying your logo; they’re also great for displaying advertisements. Use some of your customers’ favorite items to draw more people to your store. For example, if you own a convenience store by a gas station, having print on blinds that advertise that your store sells energy drinks will bring more people inside from the pumps. Truckers and early risers on their way to work will be quick to head in and grab an advertised coffee – especially if the price is low and displayed alongside the imagery.

Investing in Your Business

Print on blinds and their effect on small businesses are undeniably a great investment. They’re affordable, effective, and also functional. Give us a call at Domir Blinds if you have questions or would like to make an order. We look forward to helping your business grow to its fullest potential.

How to Keep Sunlight from Glaring on Your Laptop Screen

How to Keep Sunlight from Glaring on Your Laptop Screen

Using a laptop is something most people are familiar with these days. After all, it’s all of the necessity and convenience of a computer with the added bonus of portability. Laptops come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and systems. However, if there’s one thing that binds all laptop users together, it’s the infuriating glare of the sun on our screens. So, how do you keep sunlight from glaring on your laptop screen? Let’s talk about the solution that will make your home a safe haven for laptop use: filtering blinds.

Blinds and Laptops

Your home should always provide the most comfortable environment for you to do everyday tasks. That includes checking your email and talking with friends from your laptop. The problem is, so many people have to battle the sunlight coming in through their windows to get anything done. Even standard blinds won’t keep the light out. Rays of sunlight will come in from beside blinds, between the slats, or even the holes where strings hold standard blinds together. These errant rays of light can end up obscuring your screen from anywhere in the room.

Instead of succumbing to the temptation to pin a blanket over the window, it’s time to buy some blinds that actually do their job. Domir can help with that.

Roller Blinds

If you like sleek, utilitarian fixtures, roller blinds may be right up your alley. Roller blinds come in a number of different forms. While roller blackout shades are a possibility that will solve your sunlight problem, they’re not for everyone. Most people enjoy having some amount of light through the windows during the day. For those people, roller screens might be just what you need.

Roller screens are flat, light-filtering screens that cover the window entirely. Implementing side channels will keep sunlight from being able to sneak in around the sides as well. These screens are possible to see through from the inside, preserving your view of the outdoors. However, from the outside, they block everything, ensuring your privacy remains intact. Light is able to come through roller screens, but not UV or direct sunlight. That means a nice, comfortable glow that won’t glare on your screen.

The Improvement on Curtains

If you want something a bit more elegant, sheer vertical blinds are a great choice. These blinds are more similar to curtains than to standard blinds, but they do more than a simple piece of fabric. Sheer vertical blinds come with two layers. The first layer is a kind of screen. It will allow in indirect light, filter UVs, and give a one-way view of the outdoors. The second layer is thick, working as blackout blinds and keeping all light out. With this duo of layers, you can keep sunlight from glaring on your laptop screen or darken the room for movie night.

Improve Your RV Blinds by Shopping Domir

Improve Your RV Blinds by Shopping Domir

There are so many things in life that are often overlooked by manufacturers and stores alike. We strive to consider the use of our products for people of all types. That’s why we want to shine a light on how you can improve your RV blinds, because we know campers and travelers are frequently overlooked outside of specialized products. Here’s how we can help.

RV Manufacturing Standards

The first thing we want to talk about is RV manufacturing standards. While there are tons of high class RVs that are made for clients with deep pockets, there are certain things that run consistent in the industry. One such thing is the low quality of RV blinds.

When RV manufacturing companies put together a new RV, the goal is to provide the best possible appearance to potential buyers. Under the surface, there are often tons of corners that have been cut. While higher priced RVs have less cut corners, they still, often, maintain the same low quality in areas that are overlooked. One such area is the blinds. 

Almost every new RV owner is looking out for things like the size of the bathroom, how much expandable space the RV has, and the quality of things like the carpet or kitchen appliances. Every time, almost without fail, no one notices the blinds. This allows companies to put in cheap, slatted, metal blinds, or low quality honeycomb blinds.

Impact on Travel

Why do the blinds in an RV matter? The answer is simple: RV blinds are the one thing giving you privacy while you’re out and about in the world, traveling. When you park an RV for the night, you’re likely doing so near others in the same boat. That means people who could see in through your windows. When parked for the night, any light inside the RV will turn windows into something like a TV screen. Anyone outside can see anything inside, like a movie – and you’re the star.

Plus, blinds aren’t just for privacy. They’re also for keeping sunlight under control. Cheap blinds are often made without much regard to efficiency. As long as they block out most of the light, people will accept them. 

The thing is, you deserve better. You paid good money on an RV so that you could have a high quality traveling experience. Light that obscures your laptop screen, sun-bleaches the expensive couch upholstery, and potentially allow in unwanted gazes is not what you signed up for.

RV Blinds

The solution is taking the quality of your RV blinds into your own hands. Replacing blinds in an RV means getting to pick out exactly the qualities you want in blinds. Check out the different styles available from our products list and imagine how those would improve your travels. We’ve got blackout screens, light-filtering roller screens, beautiful honeycomb blinds of the highest quality, hybrid blinds, and more. Call us if you have questions on how to order and we’ll be happy to help you out.
