The Best Designs for Hospital Blinds

Hospitals come with a unique set of needs when it comes to blinds. Therefore, Domir Blinds has put together a short list of the best designs for hospital blinds. Take a look and see how the different styles impact a stay in the hospital.

Total Blackout

The first style that’s great for hospital blinds is blackout shades. What do blackout shades bring to the table that can be of use in a hospital setting? First off, their blackout quality makes sleeping during the day easier than ever for recovering patients. Sunlight can be a huge interruption when trying to get some peace after an operation. Blackout shades make recovery smoother and more comfortable.

Plus, blackout shades come with some functional bonuses as well. For one thing, they’re pretty resilient. That makes the abundance of patients that move in and out of a room no problem. Visitors can lean up against a blackout shade without bending anything out of shape. Plus, shades are easy to clean. Because they’re one flat piece, they can easily be pulled down, sprayed with cleaner, and wiped down whenever necessary. You can’t say the same for dust-collecting, flimsy, metal-vaned blinds.

Indirect Sunlight

For other areas of a hospital, needing extensive sleep during the day to recover isn’t entirely necessary. Shorter stays or less intensive reasons for staying make blackout shades excessive and unhelpful. For example, someone staying in a postnatal ward may want to nap, but is less likely to sleep away the whole day in darkness.

For wards like this, blinds that offer indirect sunlight are the best option. Honeycomb blinds, the Ninet, and roller screens will all filter light. That means no direct sunlight, but plenty of sunshine glow coming in through the fabrics.

Roller screens are different from the other options in two ways. They’re easy to wipe down, as they’re one piece, like blackout shades. Furthermore, they’re possible to see through. Patients can look outside through the screen, but no one outside will be able to see in. This one-way feature makes roller screens great for first-floor rooms.

However, honeycomb blinds and the Ninet come with a bonus of their own: they look so cozy. These two blind styles are both lined with fabric, making them look soft and comfortable. Comfort is a key factor in most hospital rooms. 

Complete Control

For wards with patients who are more capable of moving around the room, blinds with more control may be worthwhile. The same can be said for waiting rooms, where visitors may want to adjust the blinds.

Magic Lite allows the user to go from complete blackout to complete exposure. The sleek design looks professional and attractive. Plus, the slats are solid, making them easier to wipe down than flimsy, aluminum alternatives. The only real downside is that there’s nothing filtering the light, which means any light coming in will be direct sunlight. For some, this may matter. Though, in the grand scheme of things, it’s not likely to be much of a problem.

How to Match Your Blinds to Your Interior Design

How to Match Your Blinds to Your Interior Design

All of Domir’s blinds come with unique features for optimal functionality. They can be mixed and matched to create a very efficient house. However, for many, aesthetics are more important than function. If you’re happy with basic functionality, all you need to know when shopping for new blinds is how to match your blinds to your interior design.

Magic Lite Blinds

Magic Lite blinds are a take on the traditional, vaned blinds that most homes have. However, with higher quality and functionality, they offer extremely flexible light control. You can take a room from full sunlight exposure to complete blackout with a pull of the cord.

These blinds are white and squared, offering an appearance that fits best with a cool-toned aesthetic. These blinds would fit in well with a sleek, modern interior, providing a fantastic backdrop for bright decor. Thus, a vase of bright flowers or a couch with colored pillows would look great in front of a window covered in Magic Lite.

Blackout Shades

Blackout shades are not the prettiest blinds we have to offer. They’re made to be functional, primarily. Offices where functionality is key would benefit from them greatly. On the other hand, you can use the blank, white, inside surface of these shades to your advantage. If you want the blackout abilities of these shades but aren’t satisfied with their appearance, use the white space as a canvas for your creative side. Put decals on its surface or, at the risk of voiding the warranty, put your painting skills to use. Use your creativity to match your blinds to your decor by force.

Ninet

The Ninet blinds we offer are a combination of regular, vane blinds and roller screens. They offer lighting control and privacy all at the same time. These blinds, with their soft and warm appearance, would go well with a cozy interior. If you decorate with warm colors and have a welcoming aesthetic, these blinds would fit right in with your interior. Not only that, they’re one of our best designs and offer great functionality!

Roller Screens

Roller screens are made to let in all of the natural sunlight you want while still blocking out UV, heat, and prying eyes. These screens aren’t pure white. They offer a warm tone to the windows and would fit well with a warm interior design. These screens would be well suited to a home with lots of big windows. We recommend pairing them with side channels. Side channels are attached to the walls framing your window and hold shades in place. They also keep errant rays of sunlight from slipping in at the sides of your shades or screens.

These screens can be left down at all times, since they let in all the light you need. Because of that, they’re great for homes with a lot of decor. Cover your window sill with as many bouquets, books, and statuettes as you want. You won’t have to worry about knocking them off when adjusting the blinds.

If you have questions about our products or how to order them, just drop us a line. We look forward to helping you choose your new favorite blinds.

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.

Get Better Prices with Domir

While many stores offer blinds of varying types, what makes Domir Blinds different is that we manufacture blinds. As a manufacturer, our prices are lower than store prices. Any product sold in stores is marked up to cover the payment of employees and ensure the store makes a profit. When you shop Domir, you get to cut out third party markups and pay solely for the product and its manufacturing. Call us today if you have any questions about how to order.

Why Presentation Rooms Need Blackout Shades

Why Presentation Rooms Need Blackout Shades

Whether you’re a professional or an academic, you know how important presentations can be. An accessible and well-made presentation can be the difference between a class understanding a vital concept in your course or a group of superiors supporting your new pitch. With that in mind, it’s easy to see why presentation rooms need blackout shades… or is it? Let’s look at the specifics of how blackout shades improve presentation room success rates.

Less Distraction

To start, let’s talk about the most obvious benefit of covering windows during presentations. Windows may offer a great view – a plus in most cases. However, when giving a presentation, a great view, or an expansive one, can quickly become a distraction. If you’re giving a lecture, the last thing you need is students getting distracted by someone messing around outside.

By covering windows during a presentation, you keep viewers centered on what’s being presented. Whether that’s new information in their field or a sales pitch for that new account you’re aiming for, we want you to succeed. That’s the first reason presentation rooms need blackout shades.

No Sun Glare

While it might not be the most immediate thing you think of when considering presentations, blackout blinds are actually vital for preventing sun glare. Presentation screens, whether done with projector or with a corded connection with a computer, require some level of darkness. Too much light will obscure the screen, making it hard or downright impossible to see.

Instead of forcing viewers to strain their eyes or guess at what they’re missing, provide your presentation with the darkness it needs to really shine. Blackout shades will keep daylight from interrupting the quality of your hard-made presentation.

Motorized Convenience

Not keen on circling the room to close and reopen shades every time you need to turn on a projector? Make opening and closing your blackout shades as easy as the tap of a button by motorizing your blinds. Motorized blackout shades can be connected to a handy app on any smart device. Then, when you’re ready to present, simply instruct them to close, right from your phone or tablet. Not only is this convenient, it adds to the professionalism of your presentation.

An Overall Success

With these three things in mind, you can see how blackout shades can completely alter the trajectory of any presentation. On one hand, you have distracted viewers who are struggling to see the screen, and on the other, a fluid transition from daylight to darkness and a room full of focused and engaged viewers.

If you want to improve your presentations, get your presentation room the blackout shades it needs. You can buy blackout shades, roller screens, and many other blinds designs right from Domir Blinds. Call us today if you have any questions about our products, their effects on sunlight diffusion, or how to order. We look forward to assisting you!
