The Fashionable Addition of Honeycomb Blinds

admin

honeycomb blindsAre you looking for the right blinds and just haven’t found them yet? It can be tricky finding blinds that look right for your home and fit in functionally as well. Domir Blinds is here today to tell you about honeycomb blinds. They’re a fashionable fixture in any home, but they’re more than they seem. Let’s see what makes honeycomb blinds so special.

Soft Appearance

Honeycomb blinds, because they’re not made with slats, have a soft appearance. They diffuse light coming in from outside and cast a lovely glow on any room. This kind of glowing filter for sunlight allows whatever room you’ve furnished with honeycomb blinds to be illuminated gently. No need to shield your eyes from harsh rays of sunlight where these are installed. But, you also don’t need to worry about your room being hidden from the wonderful morning sunlight.

This soft appearance lends itself to almost any interior design type. They best fit attractive homes with a comfortable-feeling interior. However, they can also add a touch of warmth to more contemporary or even minimalist interiors.

Blackout

If you would rather have the same solid, simplistic design without the sunlight, you can even opt for honeycomb blackout blinds. These blinds are ideal for bedrooms where you prefer your alarm to be what wakes you.

Insulation

One of the things that makes honeycomb blinds so attractive to homeowners is their insulating property. Because honeycomb blinds are made with connected chambers, they keep out cold or hot air.

In the winter, honeycomb blinds will keep cold air from getting into your home as quickly. That means your heater won’t have to work so hard. In the summer, it will do the same by keeping out hot air. Then your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard. In either case, you’re saving money on electricity by keeping your home at a more stable temperature.

Choose Your Color

Honeycomb sheer blinds can even be customized to fit your interior. While the outside of the blinds remains a crisp white, you can choose any color you want for the inside of your blinds. This allows you to compliment whatever colors you already have in your home. Match your decor and make your blinds part of the whole interior design.

This flexibility in color makes these blinds a favorite commercial buildings as well. If you run an office that thrives on creativity, having colored blinds will add to the interior. Don’t let your team suffer from staring at bland, white blinds all day. Give them a touch of color and watch them become more efficient and happy employees. Even if your office has a simple interior, choosing a color for your blinds that matches the company logo will help with your impression on people.

Hidden Cord

Another cool thing about honeycomb sheers is that they have a hidden cord. Because the cord to these blinds stays out of sight and out of the way, they’re family friendly. Households with small children can rest at ease knowing their children won’t be able to get ahold of the cord to the blinds.

How Proper Blinds Improve Your Sleep Quality

How Proper Blinds Improve Your Sleep QualityPeople in the modern world tend to be more frequently afflicted with sleep trouble. This can happen for a number of reason. The important thing to know is that, while there are a lot of causes, the kind of blinds you have can make a big impact. Lets take a look at how proper blinds can improve your sleep quality!

Block Out City Lights

One thing that’s undoubtedly made sleep harder for many is the imposing lights of the surrounding city. It doesn’t matter if you grew up in the city or you just moved there from the country. Our bodies are made to sleep in darkness. Even if you’ve grown used to the lights coming in through your window, you’ll sleep better with a dark room. It may take some getting used to, but it will pay off.

Blackout shades or other very efficient, light-blocking blinds, like Magic Lite, will keep the city lights at bay. Sleep well without street lights and neon signs brightening up your room.

Better Sleep Quality on Night Shift

If you work night shift, you may have a hard time getting really restful sleep. Trying to sleep when the sun is up can drastically lower the quality of your rest. Not only that, it can be hard getting to sleep in the first place.

Blocking out daylight completely, however, is difficult. Regular blinds just aren’t up for the job. This amount of light needs something made specifically for it. Replacing your bedroom blinds with blackout shades instead, or Magic Lite, may just do the trick. Blackout shades are the best option, really. If you pair these incredibly efficient shades with side channels, no light will make it in.

Implement Side Channels

Side channels are little tracks for your window shade. They’re attached to the sides of your window frame and the window shade will remain seated in the channels. This ensures no light comes in around the sides of your shades.

Side channels were created specifically for working environments where there are a lot of computers. They’re also used in presentation rooms where projectors need complete darkness. Using these in the home will keep your room dark and easy to sleep in, even during midday.

Darken the Nursery

While some babies sleep okay with sunlight drifting in, some don’t. Just like adults, every baby is different. Some sleep better when it’s dark. Even for those who can sleep during the daytime, putting them down for a nap in the dark is a great way to condition them to associate darkness with sleep. This will make it easier for them, as they grow older, to handle a dark room and fall asleep when laid down in one.

How to Babyproof Your Home Starting with the Blinds

How to Babyproof Your Home Starting with the BlindsBringing a new baby into your home is a huge undertaking. It can really change things about how your day to day life goes. Not only are you caring for a new child, you also have to deal with babyproofing. Babyproofing every part of your home within reach of a baby can make once-simple tasks a bit trickier. From opening cabinets to plugging things in, there’s always a barrier you have to get past. But, it doesn’t have to be that way with your blinds! Domir offers a great selection of babyproof blinds. You only have to choose which ones are right for you.

Going Cordless

There are a lot of methods to keeping babies safe from blinds. The cords pose a serious hazard as small children can get wrapped up in them and end up hurt. Some people choose to drape the cord to the blinds over a curtain rod, out of reach. However, this doesn’t look the best and the cord can always come loose, falling within reach again. It’s best, instead, to get cordless blinds!

Cordless blinds remove the need for a pull-cord altogether. You can raise and lower the blinds by pulling on them, or, if it suits you, by using your phone. Motorized blinds don’t require cords and they’re even more convenient. For someone who’s busy feeding or rocking a new baby, it’s much more convenient to pull out your phone. Cover or uncover as many windows as you like with the simple tap of your screen.

Ditch the Metal

Many common blinds are made up of metal slats. These are one of the cheap options and are often what’s already installed in a house when you move in. The unfortunate thing about metal slats is that a child pulling on them can easily bend them out of shape. This can really affect the put-together appearance you strive for in your home.

Opting for cloth or hardy, wooden blinds can solve this problem easily. Reaching hands won’t have any slats to grab onto with the sheer outer layer of the Ninet. Window shades and screens are also very effective with children around. Being one large piece, there are no parts that can bend or scratch your little one. Pairing shades and screens with side channels will ensure they stay put, even if provoked by the smallest member of the family. Now those are some babyproof blinds!

Easy to Clean

The next important consideration is how easy your blinds are to clean. All it takes is some baby food flung toward the kitchen window and your blinds can become a mess. This is where shades and screens really shine. They’re easy to wipe down in the case of a mess. Fabric blinds are less convenient in this scenario. However, we know that not everyone is keen on having more bland screens and shades.

If you want something that looks cozy, will stand up to prying fingers, and is easy to clean, the best choice is Magic Lite. Magic Lite is hardy, modern, and great at controlling the amount of light in your home. This is the ultimate window covering for families with young children.

Outfitting Your Classrooms with Proper Blinds

Outfitting Your Classrooms with Proper BlindsWe can all agree that making classrooms as conducive to learning as possible is a great idea, right? Well, one part of doing that is putting up proper blinds. What exactly is it that a classroom needs from its blinds though? Let’s take a look!

Tech Friendly

One part of running a class in the 21st century is making your classroom tech friendly. What does this mean? In this case, it means ensuring computers, tablets, and phones are easy to look at without sunlight getting in the way. This doesn’t mean you have to keep your classroom dark, just that you want to limit direct sunlight.

This accessibility is important. That’s because so much of our lives are stored behind screens, from assignment lists to dorm group chats. Your students need a classroom that caters to their learning needs. For this, we suggest window screens with side channels. For rooms where presentations happen frequently or that are dedicated computer labs, blackout shades may be better.

Temperature Assisting

Another thing to look out for in blinds is the ability to insulate. Blinds that can insulate will keep your classrooms from overheating during the hot months. They’ll also keep the warm air in during the cold months. This mean the air conditioner and heater don’t have to work as hard and your students will be more comfortable. When students are in a temperate room, they’ll have an easier time getting their work done. After all, they won’t be distracted by how warm or cold they are.

Screens and Shades

Window screens are especially good for classrooms. They have a number of features that are useful in this specific setting, including:

  • Insulating rooms, as explained above.
  • They can be paired with side channels. This aids in additional insulation while also lending them a sleeker look. Screens with side channels look well-kept and organized without any additional help.
  • Blocking out UV rays. This prevents damage to classroom fixtures, as UV is what causes sun damage.
  • Letting in light but keeping screens visible. Window screens diffuse sunlight, making it tech friendly.

Shades are a worthy consideration for rooms that need to remain dark, such as computer labs or presentation rooms. Here’s what they have to offer:

  • Complete sun blockage. This means you can use your projector without sunlight getting in the way of the projection.
  • Insulation as mentioned above.
  • They can be paired with side channels which makes them look neat and organized as well as providing additional insulation.
  • Window shades block out the view, which can be great for concentration as well as privacy during exams.
