Choosing Blinds for Different Rooms


Choosing Blinds for Different RoomsEach room of the house has its own unique needs. This is true even when it comes to blinds. As a matter of fact, you might not realize just how much specific blinds in each room might improve your life. At Domir Blinds, we’ve put a lot of thought into exactly which blinds go best in which rooms. We’re here today to tell you our conclusions!

Living Room and Office

The living room, being the main leisure area in the house, can be demanding in two ways. When you’re socializing with family or visitors, you’ll probably want some sunlight to see better. However, if you keep a TV in your living room, like many do, you’ll need a way to block the light entirely.

Your home office will need much the same things. Spending time reading or sorting through paperwork will need some lighting, but your computer screen won’t take kindly to the sun.

Due to its ability to give you complete exposure and then complete darkness at the pull of a string, we recommend Magic Lite for both. It will give you all the light you need to read or talk, while blacking out the sun during movies or computer time.


The bedroom is much less demanding than the living room or office. Because it has a small amount of purposes, the bedroom doesn’t need such extreme light control.

The Ninet is a product which features two sheer screens with fabric vanes in between them. This allows some control over how much light is coming into your home while also protecting your interior from UV, excess heat, and prying eyes.

Due to its casual light control and its one-way privacy protection, we think the Ninet is perfect for bedrooms. You can rest assured that no one will catch a glimpse of you sleeping or getting dressed due to the protective screens. However, you’ll be able to enjoy the view and light from outside as much as you like.


The kitchen isn’t a room that demands much lighting control. Not only that, but it’s important to have blinds in your kitchen that can be cleaned easily. After all, food splattering onto the metal vanes of cheaper blinds is incredible hard to clean off with ease.

Because most kitchen blinds aren’t often fussed with, we recommend roller screens. Roller screens diffuse light, keeping out excess heat and UV. They let in all of the sunlight you could want, making breakfast time a cheerful event. Roller screens also protect your privacy, giving you a one-way view of the outdoors while passersby can’t see inside. For blinds that you don’t mess with much at all, these are the best option.


The bathroom, being an area in need of privacy and adequate lighting, has few demands. There’s not usually a reason to adjust the lighting in a bathroom. The windows in a bathroom are usually exclusively there for providing lighting and ventilation. Roller screens are also the best choice for this room as well. You can leave them down, preserve privacy, and still get the lighting benefits. Not to mention, if your window is low enough, you can enjoy the view during your bath without worrying about anyone seeing you back.

Pairing Blinds and Stylized Decor


Pairing Blinds and Stylized DecorThe different blind styles offered by Domir are all made to serve a purpose. They can be mixed and matched to create a very functional house. However, some people aren’t very particular about specific functions. If you’re happy with the basics, but find yourself more interested in how your blinds match your home, this is the article for you!


The Ninet blinds we offer are a wonderful hybrid between 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!

Blackout Shades

Blackout shades are not the prettiest blinds we have to offer. They’re made to be functional, primarily. These are best suited to office spaces where functionality wins out over interior design. 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.

Magic Lite Blinds

Magic Lite blinds are a take on the traditional, vaned blinds that most homes have. However, with higher quality and better control design, 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 would fit in best with a colder 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 colors pillows would look great in front of a window covered in Magic Lite.

Roller Screens

Roller screens are made to let in all of the natural sunlight you can enjoy while 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.

There’s no reason these screens can’t be left down at all times, as 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.

The Professional Touch of Window Shades


The Professional Touch of Window ShadesDecorating an office space or business to be appealing to customers while still remaining professional and functional can be tricky. There are a number of things to consider about a professional interior from flooring to paint. Domir Blinds is here to make the decision about window coverings a little easier!

Roller Shades

Roller shades are one of the most popular choices for a professional environment – and for good reason. Roller shades do a great job of blocking out the light that would otherwise make computer screens hard to see. They also don’t collect dust the same way regular blinds do. Regular blinds are hard to keep from getting dusty. In a place of work, who does it fall to to keep the blinds clean? If you’re having a hard time figuring that out, that might be why so many businesses have dusty blinds! Roller shades will make this a moot concern.

Blackout Shades

Roller blackout shades are the more effective cousin of roller shades! They function in exactly the same way but block out even more light, like you never had a window to begin with. These are ideal for presentation rooms and meeting rooms where projectors will be put to use. They’re also great for computer lab-type rooms where sunlight is almost always an inconvenience.

Side Channels

Both of these shade types, and especially the blackout ones, benefit greatly from side channels. Side channels are little tracks installed on either side of a shade. These are invaluable for when you want complete darkness. A shade isn’t always the perfect size for a window and there will be a sliver of light on either side of it. Light leaking through can be enough to make a computer unusable.

If the sun is rising or setting on the same side of the building as your window, that little ray of light could land right on your screen. And we all know how bright and eye-searing morning and sunset light can be. Avoid this scenario entirely with side channels. They’ll completely cover any cracks between the wall and roller shades you’ve installed. No more errant rays of light will ruin your presentation or work efficiency!

Side channels have another perk as well! If your windows are able to open or if you frequently have fans running, they hold shades in place. Wind from outside or from a fan won’t leave your shades moving around and causing distractions. Not to mention, side channels give shades a clean and finished look that you just can’t beat.

Print On Blinds

Regular shades are great for efficiency, but what about the front office where there are less computers and more customer service? Domir Blinds offers a fantastic solution for these areas! Print on blinds are a screen-type window covering where you can print on designs or logos. Create a desired atmosphere by adding a design to your blinds or advertise to passersby with your logo in the window.

All of these options are great for a professional look. Contact us to order. Remember, we’re the manufacturer. Save up to 50% when ordering straight from Domir!

What Is Your Circadian Rhythm and How Do Blinds Affect It?


What Is Your Circadian Rhythm and How Do Blinds Affect It_
If you’ve never heard of your circadian rhythm, you might think it has to do with musical talent. It, however, has nothing to do with how well you can keep a beat. Your circadian rhythm is what most people call your ‘internal clock’.

A human’s circadian rhythm typically aligns fairly well with the natural day/night cycle. Before electricity, people would sleep when it was dark and wake when it was light. Now that we have electric lights, the day tends to revolve around work and school schedules. It’s perfectly possible to sustain a comfortable and healthy schedule outside the rise and fall of the sun. However, it’s important to keep in mind how light affects our sleeping patterns. And yes, even electric light will have an effect. Let’s see how.

Light Entrainment

Our bodies naturally adapted over time to wake and sleep with the light of the sun and darkness of night. Because of this, our circadian rhythm is attuned to the lights around us, even now. When a person surrounds themselves with bright, electric light, they are telling their body it’s time to be awake. The opposite goes for darkness. If all of the lights are out, our body’s instinct is to go to sleep.

Unfortunately, our bodies can get confused if we tend to mix up the light levels of our environments quite a bit. If you tend to stay up doing things late into the night with the lights out, when it’s time to go to sleep, your body will think it’s time to be awake. After all, you usually spend the dark ours working or playing video games.

This is called entrainment. You’ve trained your body to react to certain light levels by staying awake or going to sleep. Fortunately, with this in mind, you’re now equipped to take control of the entrainment going on with your body.

What Do Blinds Have to Do with It?

If you wake up early in the morning for work or school, it might still be dark outside. Maybe your work hours are early or you have a long commute ahead of you. Either way, you’re telling your body that it’s okay to be awake when it’s dark. If you’re moving around your house, what is your first inclination? To turn a light on, of course! By doing this, you’re ensuring your body knows it’s daytime and time to be awake.

Where most of the trouble comes in is during the evening. If you get up early, you probably go to bed a little early too. Trying to get to sleep with the sun shining in your windows can be really tricky. Even regular, slatted blinds don’t block out all the light. This is where blinds become really important. Having blackout shades with side channels is really great for your circadian rhythm. It will lead to less bodily confusion about what time it is and what it should be doing. Then you can finally get that solid night of rest that’s been evading you.

And if you don’t go to bed early but, rather, stay up into the dark on your computer, you’re likely to have trouble sleeping. Do yourself a favor and turn on a light when it gets dark outside. Not only is it better for your eyes, it will signal time for you to sleep when you finally flip the switch.
