Bulk Apartment Blinds Replacement for Landlords

Keeping an entire apartment complex under control is a huge task. There’s repairing tenant damages, replacing broken-down appliances, and updating the interior. The tasks are endless. Make your job that much easier by updating them all at once. If the blinds in your apartments are old, tacky, and not doing you any favors on attracting tenants, replace them. You can do bulk apartment blinds replacement with help from Domir Blinds. Here’s how.

High Quality Blinds

Domir Blinds offers high quality blinds that are affordable in price. Because we’re the manufacturer, you can cut out the overhead costs added by middlemen and get the best deal possible. Being both high quality and affordable, our blinds are the perfect solution for landlords needing bulk apartment blinds replacement.

Installing quality blinds can make a massive difference in capturing the hearts of prospective tenants. Going into a simple apartment with aluminum slatted blinds can give a cheap impression. Going into the same apartment with honeycomb blinds can look classy and cozy. You wouldn’t believe the difference some nicer blinds can make throughout an entire apartment.

Variety of Styles

Every apartment interior is different. To get the right kind of improvement, you’ll want to buy blinds that compliment and enhance the existing interior. Fortunately, Domir Blinds offers a variety of colors and styles. Many of the blinds we offer are displayed in a standard white, but can be special ordered in color. If you’re looking for darker colors to contrast lighter walls, or to accent mid-tone painted walls, consider buying some of our blinds in rich browns, reds, or greens. 

If you want something that’s more neutral, you can also order our blinds in grey tones. This is a great way to add some variety to the interior design of an apartment without infringing on a tenant’s potential color preferences.

Improve Property Value

Every little update done to an apartment interior can create an overall boost in property value. A cheap looking apartment can only be rented out for cheap. However, if you can increase the apparent value of the apartment with the simple addition of quality blinds, you can increase rent to something more moderate.

Improving the property value of your apartments by doing bulk apartment blinds replacement is also useful if planning to sell. It is the nature of any business to change hands once in a while. Apartment complexes are no different. If you’re looking to sell to a different management company, giving your complex a property value boost will ensure you get the most out of the sale.

Sliding Glass Door Blinds in Toronto

Sliding Glass Door Blinds in Toronto

Getting the right blinds for a set of sliding glass doors isn’t as easy as it sounds. Doors are not the primary concern for most blinds designs. Even those that might work for floor to ceiling windows may be problematic on something meant to move. If you need sliding glass door blinds, you need to come to Domir Blinds. Here are some of our options that may appeal to you.

Blinds That Won’t Move

If you want blinds for a glass door that slides or swings open, blinds that move around can be a massive pain. In either case, each time you open the door, the blinds will end up knocking around and making a lot of racket. So, step #1 for sliding glass door blinds is finding blinds that don’t move around.

Accomplish this in one of two ways: get blinds that secure to your door, or get blinds that aren’t attached to the door at all.

Attaching blinds to a glass door with a wooden frame around it, like one that swings open and has a large glass panel in the center, is easy. You can buy little anchors and screw them into the bottom panel of the door. Then, blinds can snap into the anchors. Many types of blinds have a small hole in the bar at the bottom for doing just this. Those that don’t may have a small hole drilled into them to allow them to be anchored. Then, blinds can be popped out of the anchors when you want to raise them.

However, for doors that are glass all the way down, or with a metal frame, you can buy and attach suction cups to the bottom bar of your blinds. You can suction these to the glass to prevent your blinds from swinging around.

Additionally, you can also avoid clunky, moving blinds by installing something like sheer vertical blinds. You attach these to the wall above your sliding glass doors. Get a sheer protective layer that filters UV, or even a blackout layer, with the use of sheer vertical blinds. 

Motorized, Automated Blinds

If your sliding glass doors provide a lot of the light in the room they’re in, you may want to regularly open and close them with the sun. Automating your sliding glass door blinds with motorized blinds technology is the perfect solution. Bathe your living room in morning sun and keep your privacy when the sun sets without lifting a finger.

Motorized blinds are possible with any style that lifts and lowers. We fit the motor behind the fascia attached to the wall. Motorized blinds are perfect for people who are busy, have accessibility needs, or who own large houses with many windows.

High Quality Sliding Glass Door Blinds

If you’re looking for sliding glass door blinds that are high quality and improve your interior, Domir Blinds is the solution. Check out our selection of blinds through the menu above, or give us a call. We love hearing from you and would love to help you make the perfect selection.

Replace Blinds Throughout Your Home in Toronto

Replace Blinds Throughout Your Home in Toronto

Blinds are such an important everyday fixture in any home. If you’ve ever lived without blinds you probably did what everyone else without blinds does: found a substitute. We so crave control over the light levels in our environments that, without blinds, we quickly resort to sheets, blankets, curtains, and more. So, if your blinds aren’t doing their job, Domir Blinds wants to make it easy for you to replace them. Replace blinds throughout your home with Domir’s great selection in Toronto.

Privacy Blinds

The biggest reason people want blinds is to cover their windows and maintain privacy inside their homes. However, there’s a better solution for maintaining privacy than covering your window with a blanket. In fact, there’s a better solution than the cookie-cutter, aluminum blinds most modern houses are equipped with. Domir Blinds offers privacy blinds that look great while providing you sunlight and keeping out prying eyes.

Our best options for privacy blinds are roller screens and sheer vertical blinds. Both of these designs offer a sheer screen that allows filtered light in and views of outside. However, neither can be seen through the other direction. Therefore, your neighbors won’t be able to see inside your home.

UV Filtering Blinds

These same two blinds designs filter UV to protect you, you children, your pets, your plants, and even your fabrics. UV can cause sunburns and skin cancer, it can damage plants and stifle growth, and it can bleach out colored fabrics. Replace your blinds in your Toronto home and get your sunlight without all the problems incurred by UV rays. It’s easy when you rely on UV filtering blinds.

Blackout Blinds

Want your bedroom completely dark when you take your afternoon nap? Do you work the night shift and need to get sleep when the day is at its brightest? Blackout blinds are your new best friend. We offer blackout blinds in a number of forms. Most popular are our roller blackout shades and Magic Lite. 

Our roller blackout shades are simple, straightforward, and effective. Their thick, laminated layers prevent any light from coming through. Plus, roller blackout shades can be paired with side channels to prevent sunlight from sneaking in around the sides of your shade.

Magic Lite, on the other hand, is less simple. Instead of having one primary purpose (blocking out light), this design is adjustable. The broad, wooden slats can be adjusted to completely block out sunlight or to offer a room complete light exposure. The control is in your hands when using this sleek blinds design.

Motorized Blinds

If you have a lot of windows, save time on opening and closing the blinds each morning and evening by investing in motorized blinds. Any of our designs can be motorized upon order. We simply install the motor directly at the top, hidden by the fascia.

Motorized blinds can be controlled from an app on your smart device. Therefore, you can control your blinds from anywhere. Going on vacation and not sure if you put the front blinds down? Simply check the app and put them down from on the road.

Save Money by Ordering Domir

When you order from Domir Blinds, you save money! Because we’re the manufacturer, you can cut out the costs of overhead from department and hardware stores. Plus, you can save even more money by installing them yourself. Check out our handy DIY blinds installation guide to get started!

DIY Blinds Installation for Homeowners

Just got yourself some nice new blinds? Now comes the hard part: DIY blinds installation. If you’re not sure where to begin, Domir Blinds is happy to help. Installing blinds actually isn’t that complicated. There are only a few steps. Once you have them down, you’ll be unstoppable. So, let’s get started!

Cut the Blinds to Fit

The first step is ensuring your blinds fit. Not every set of blinds will come in the correct length. This is especially true if ordering in bulk for a large space with many different window sizes. If you’re doing all of the work yourself, you’re going to want a table saw for cutting your blinds.

When cutting your blinds, be sure to remove length from both ends. Otherwise, you’ll end up with wonky blinds where each side is a different distance from the ladder cords. Measure the width of your window, subtract the width from the width of your blinds, then divide the remainder in 2. Remove that amount from each end.

When using a table saw on blinds, ensure the blinds are tightly closed and clamped shut. This will make them more like one solid object and ensure the cut is the same on each slat. You’ll also need to wear protective eye wear, as cutting plastic or aluminum blinds can lead to small pieces kicking up from the slats. Don’t rely on regular glasses to protect your eyes, as the gaps around the lenses are large enough for debris to pass through. Additionally, regular glasses can be damaged and scratched if hit with debris.

Note: not all blinds should be cut after manufacture. If you need custom sizes for blinds made of wood or fabric, order them to size.

Mark Attachment Points

Next up is marking out where your attachment points will go. Since most blinds are hung from brackets, get out your brackets and a measuring tape. If you’re mounting your blinds on the inside of the window frame, measure the correct distance from each edge, at the corner of the frame. Your blinds mounting kit should have additional instructions, specific to the brackets you’re using.

Attach Blinds

The next step of DIY blinds installation is attaching the blinds. When you’ve marked where the brackets should go, it’s time to attach them. Hold the brackets up to their desired position and mark where the hole sits. Then, remove the bracket from the wall and drill a pilot hole. This is where you’ll be screwing your bracket in.

After screwing your brackets in, lift your blinds up to them and hook the headrail into the brackets. With some rotation, you should hear them click into place. 

Test Them Out

Now that your blinds have been attached to the brackets, all that’s left is testing them out. Give them a whirl. If there seems to be a hitch in their function, you may need to check their instructions to ensure you haven’t missed any steps that are specific to the design.

If your blinds seem to be crooked, something has gone amiss with your bracket mounting. Remove the blinds and use your measuring tape and level to ensure the brackets are positioned correctly. If all else fails, give us a call and we can answer any product related questions you have.
