Classroom Blinds for University Classrooms

Classroom Blinds for University Classrooms

University classrooms have a very important purpose: providing the optimal space for our country’s students to get further educated. These students will be future doctors, researchers, writers, architects, and so much more. That makes these learning environments and their comfort much more important than many people realize. So, let’s talk about how classroom blinds join the equation and how important they really are to university education

Laptop Friendly

The first thing we have to talk about is how classroom blinds make a space laptop friendly. In this technological age, laptops are a must-have for university. They allow us to take quicker notes, stay better organized, store class projects and papers, and also access digital school material. That is to say, most students can’t get by without one.

However, have you ever gone to a cafe in the morning to do some work on a laptop? If you have, you’ll know that windows aren’t always laptop friendly. Without blinds, sunlight will come right in and make your screen nigh unreadable. This kind of inconvenience can be overcome in a coffee shop by moving to a back corner or taking your coffee to go. However, you can’t always change seats in class and there is no “to go” lecture if you’re not taking online classes.

Bearing all that in mind, being able to make a room dark and laptop friendly is a necessity. The entire room may not need the same level of darkness, but some windows simply get too much sun. Because standard, slatted blinds do a poor job of blocking out all rays of sun, having some roller blackout shades on the side of the class where sun is getting in can be a life saver.

Presentations

Not only are laptops pretty useless with light shining on them, so are projector screens. University classrooms use projectors all the time. They make it easy to share what’s on laptop screens. That makes them ideal for when teachers want to display a slideshow or movie for the whole class. Plus, they’re also used for student presentations.

Because projectors use light to cast their images on a screen, any sunlight can interrupt that. That makes roller blackout shades a huge asset for rooms that use projectors as well. Roller blackout shades can even be optimized by using side channels. These channels are mounted on the sides of a window frame and hold shade edges in place. Due to the overlap between channel and shade, no light can come in around the blinds. Plus, the channels really do add that extra level of sleek.

Buying Blinds in Bulk

A lot of university classrooms equals a lot of classroom blinds. Don’t buy appropriate classroom blinds for one class and leave the others to struggle. Instead, outfit the entire university with blinds that help facilitate the education of our students.

When you buy more then $500 worth of blinds from Domir Blinds, you can get up to 50% off your order. Because we’re the manufacturer, you don’t have to pay those overhead prices that you get at hardware or outlet stores. Give us a call today if you would like assistance making your order.

How to Keep Daylight from Obscuring the TV Screen

How to Keep Daylight from Obscuring the TV Screen

Tired of your TV screen becoming impossible to see due to a nearby window? Are you on the verge of rearranging the entire living room to compensate for the lack of an adequate window covering? Don’t start moving the entertainment center just yet! There might just be an easier solution. Here’s how you can keep daylight from obscuring the TV screen.

Cheap Curtains and Blinds

The first thing you might be wondering is, “How are blinds going to help me? I already have blinds and they don’t block the sunlight.” Or, you may be thinking the same thing, but with curtains. The fact is, most curtains and blinds are just not very good at blocking light. The reason is that most curtains and blinds are cheap and ineffective. Their only merit is providing privacy. The trick is to buy yourself some decent blinds that offer a higher degree of lighting control.

What Makes Decent Blinds

The difference between standard blinds and good ones isn’t something you might notice at first glance. Decent blinds don’t have to be gold plated or electronic to get the job done right. All you need is a set of blinds with a quality design that allows lighting control.

Lighting control is how much you can change the room from complete exposure to complete blackout, using the control mechanism provided – like a cord. Standard blinds don’t allow for very much lighting control. They offer close to complete exposure and then a slightly dimmed exposure. That’s not nearly adequate for most people – especially not those with windows near their TV.

Buy Something Affordable

Something effective and decent sounds really nice for keeping daylight from obscuring the TV screen, but it must be expensive, right? Not necessarily! Blinds come in all shapes, sizes, and complexities. That means, there’s a simple and affordable solution for you.

One of the cheaper solutions for this kind of setting is a roller blackout shade. These shades are the kind you might have seen in a high school classroom. They’re wide, flat, and can be pulled down to cover the entire window. With no slats, there’s no place for light to sneak in but at the sides. And, that’s where side channels come in.

Side channels are tracks that are attached to the inside of the window frame. The edges of the roller shade sit inside the tracks, which means there are no gaps at all between the shade and frame. If you’re looking for the perfect TV room, this is all you need. Plus, when you’re done with the TV, you can open the shade again and let in all the sunlight you want.

Get Something Attractive

If simplicity isn’t the way for you, get something more attractive instead. There are plenty of options that allow even more flexible light control than window shades and provide just as effective blackout. What you need is something like the Magic Lite. The Magic Lite has flat slats that lie flush against each other. They’re wide and cover the entire window. That means you can block sunlight from obscuring the TV screen entirely.

How to Avoid Sun-Bleaching with Quality Blinds

How to Avoid Sun-Bleaching with Quality Blinds

Most people have had the misfortune of dealing with sun-bleaching at one point or another. Perhaps you left some clothes on a surface near a window for a little while. Or, maybe the bed in your guest room gets sun on it in the mornings and you noticed streaks of sun damage after a while of disuse. No matter what unfortunate piece of fabric has been sun-bleached in your home, Domir Blinds is here to help. Here’s how to avoid sun-bleaching in your home with quality blinds!

What is Sun-Bleaching?

You might not have thought about sun-bleaching on a deeper level before – most people haven’t. But, when it comes down to it, what is it that’s really causing sun-bleaching? As it turns out, like most other damage that the sun causes, the source for sun-bleaching is UV rays.

When UV rays hit a piece of fabric, they actually have a small chemical reaction with the dyes of the fabric. Over time, the dyes break down, causing the fabric to lighten in color. This is why, even if the whole room is illuminated, you’ll only get streaks of sun-bleaching where the sunlight was hitting directly.

Block Out the Sun

The most obvious solution to this kind of damage is blocking out the sun. After all, if you don’t have any sunlight in a room, you can’t get sun damage. For the more utilitarian homes, roller blackout shades might be the perfect solution. However, these aren’t the most attractive choice. 

For those of us who prefer our home to have some decorum, a more attractive, blackout blind is a better choice. For this, we highly recommend Magic Lite. The Magic Lite is made to be versatile. It can offer full exposure or complete blackout, depending on your needs. Its overlapping slats can give you whatever kind of exposure you need – even if that’s none at all.

Block Out the UV

If we’re being honest, most of us don’t prefer the room to be completely devoid of sunlight. The question then becomes how to avoid sun-bleaching without blocking out the sun. The answer is simple: block out just the UV.

Blocking out UV while letting in the sunshine is easier than you might expect. You simply need to filter the light. That’s right – you can filter the light. While light may seem like nothing to us, it’s a lot more than nothing if you look closely. Of course, seeing the UV particles isn’t necessary to get rid of them. It’s as easy as installing blinds that filter light.

A great example of quality blinds that filter out UV is The Ninet. This simplistic and gorgeous blinds design is a combination of traditional, slatted blinds and a sheer covering. The slatted blinds, placed between two sheer layers, are there for light control. The sheer layers provide privacy and filter out UV rays. This allows a room to be filled with sunlight without risking damage to fabrics within.

Blinds That Offer the Best Privacy

Blinds That Offer the Best Privacy

The truth is, there can never be enough privacy in your home. That’s especially true with everyone in quarantine. Being stuck at home all day has made a lot of us aware just how little privacy our current blinds are offering us. When it comes time for you to shop for new blinds, Domir Blinds is the best place to go. Here’s what we have to suggest for the best blinds in privacy assurance.

Blackout Shades

The most obvious for the job is blackout shades. However, these shades don’t just block out the gaze of your neighbors, it also blocks out the sun. For some people, that’s a plus. If you’re going to sleep while the sun’s still up, these shades are a great solution. You can feel your privacy is being maintained while also having the added bonus of no more sunlight. Plus, with blackout shades, you won’t have to worry about your neighbors seeing shadows on your blinds.

Roller Screens

Roller screens are the next best choice. These simplistic shade blinds are clean-cut and look great both inside and out. The best part about them? They let in sunlight without letting others see inside. You can enjoy the morning sun or read a book in the afternoon with the clean, beautiful light of day. And, you can do it all from the privacy of your own home.

Sheer Vertical Blinds

The downside to both the blackout shades and the roller screens is that they’re kind of simple in design. This has its upsides but, for those of us with a touch for interior design, they don’t really cut it. This is where sheer vertical blinds come in. Sheer vertical blinds have the elegant flair of curtains. What separates them from curtains is that they let in light without having to be opened entirely. Their double layer design allows light-blocking and light filtering, all depending on your mood.

The Ninet

One of our unique designs called the Ninet is also great for maintaining privacy. This design is more like the classic blinds design. It uses slats for light control but is coated in two layers of sheer fabric. That makes it easy for you to let in as much light as you like without actually uncovering your windows. Plus, they look absolutely gorgeous in any home or office.
