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.

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.

The Right Choice for Kitchen Blinds

The Right Choice for Kitchen Blinds

When choosing the right blinds for your kitchen, you have to take a lot of things into consideration. It isn’t just appearance, it’s also functionality. There’s lighting, ease of cleaning, opening and closing, and so much more. That’s why Domir Blinds has put together a guide on the best kitchen blinds for you and your home.

Lighting

The first thing to take into account when choosing kitchen blinds is the kind of lighting you’re looking for. Are you looking for just a little sunlight, or do you want as much light as possible? For some people, having no sunlight may actually be preferable. This is especially true if you get a lot of blinding, direct sunlight right around the time you’re doing dishes. Because everyone has different lighting needs, there are different optimal choices. 

For complete darkness, blackout shades are the best choice. They keep out light completely, making direct sunlight no problem at all. You can even improve their light-blocking capabilities by implementing side channels.

If you want a little sunlight, you may want something like the Ninet. The Ninet offers the ability to control how much light comes in through its slats while also having a sheer layer on it for screening.

Functionality

After lighting comes functionality. Do you want to be able to leave your blinds closed all the time or would you rather have something you can open and close as needed?

To keep out light at all times, leaving up a blackout shade is the perfect solution. Allowing a little sunlight throughout the day is best done with the Ninet. Leaving it with the slats slightly open will let in just a little sunlight as long as you like.

However, if you want something that’s got maximum light control and that thrives when being changed often, Magic Lite might be the blinds for you. This type of blinds allows you to adjust how much light you want from complete exposure to complete blackout. These are great for those of us who need sunlight to prepare breakfast by but want to block out the harsh rays of the setting sun.

Cleanliness

The last thing you should consider is cleanliness. If you’re the kind of person who wants their blinds looking good as new, you’ll want something easy to clean. Plus, some of us do a lot more home cooking than others and may end up with bits of food splattered on the blinds from washing up or prepping dinner.

In the end, the best blinds for easy cleaning are the shades and the Magic Lite. Blackout shades and roller screens are a flat surface, making them easy to wipe down with a cloth. Magic Lite is made of sturdy slats, making it both adjustable and easy to wipe down.

If you don’t need to clean your blinds very often, the Ninet is still a good choice for you. However, if you do, steer clear of the sheer fabric lining these blinds. The Ninet is beautiful, but not the easiest to clean.

No mater what your choice, get it from straight from the manufacturer and cut out third party costs when buying Domir. Give us a call if you have any questions about our products or how to make an order and we’ll be happy to help.
