Motorized Blinds for Offices in Toronto

Motorized Blinds for Offices in Toronto

Blinds are a great necessity in any office. Whether you need them to prevent glare on computer screens, to darken a room for a presentation, or to block out the setting sun that’s threatening to blind your board of directors, they’re always there. The question is, are they easy to use? Domir Blinds is here to enlighten you about motorized blinds. Here’s why these are the best choice of blinds for offices.

Control Blinds on High Windows

The first, and possibly the most exciting, use for motorized blinds is covering high windows. Have you ever entered an office space or other building, saw blinds on a window 15 feet up, and wondered how on Earth they’re even used? They might just have been motorized!

Because motorized blinds are controlled from an app on your smart device, blinds completely out of reach can be opened and closed right from your seat.

This is especially useful for high windows that shouldn’t be covered at all times. In many instances, a high window may be the primary light source for a large foyer or other entry room. Covering it permanently would deprive the room of the glory it is to behold when filled with morning sun. However, if that same window acts as a magnifying glass when the sun begins to set, blinding all of its occupants, blinds become a necessity. This is where a timer comes in handy.

Blinds on a Timer

When you install motorized blinds, you can put them on a timer. If you need your blinds to open or close at the same time every day, your motorized blinds timer will manage them for you. No more making the rounds in a huge building to open and close the blinds twice a day. It’s already done!

Easier Control of Many Blinds

In fact, controlling many blinds at once is another of the benefits of motorized blinds. While opening and closing the blinds on one window twice a day is trouble enough, a huge office with a wall of windows is another story entirely. It’s no small task managing ten different blinds for offices. This is especially true if the task is time sensitive enough that someone’s going to be unable to see their computer if you’re late to adjusting the blinds. You can leave employees to adjust the blinds themselves, but then you risk letting the poor blinds choice interrupt their workflow.

Choosing the Right Blinds

That brings us to our next point: make sure you choose the right blinds. There’s more to effective blinds than just opening and closing them at the right times; You also need a style that fits the environment. If direct sunlight is constantly causing problems for computer-users in your office, you might need to switch to something that filters light, like a window screen or honeycomb blinds. These will allow indirect sunlight in without causing glare.

Motorize Any Blinds

Not sure you can motorize the type of blinds you want? You’re probably wrong! Give us a call and ask us if you’re not sure. However, virtually any type of blind or screen can be motorized with a mechanism added behind the fascia. Contact us today if you have questions or would like to start your order.

Honeycomb Blinds for Businesses in Toronto

Honeycomb Blinds for Businesses in Toronto

People generally underestimate how important blinds are, both aesthetically and functionally. An interior is completely altered with the addition of blinds – for better or for worse. So, in a professional setting, like an office or a store, poor quality blinds just won’t stand. Here’s why honeycomb blinds from Domir Blinds are great for businesses.

Professional Appearance

To start, a professional place of business should look professional. When no thought or investment is put into the environment a business operates in, it makes the business appear to be poorer quality. Therefore, it’s worth considering how your blinds might affect your business appearance. Poor quality blinds, like the standard, aluminum-slatted ones, will give a negative impression of your business.

Honeycomb blinds are the perfect solution for a professional interior that doesn’t cost a small fortune to design. These blinds are much more elegant than their aluminum-slatted counterparts. Plus, even if the material they’re made of isn’t high-end, it still looks higher quality than aluminum. These blinds also act as a great accent for your interior design.

Simple Design

The design of honeycomb blinds is simple and attractive. These blinds know what they’re about. They offer straightforward light control for rooms without blackout needs. Additionally, they’re easy to control and can be easily opened or closed by employees or guests in a waiting room.

The best part about the simple design of honeycomb blinds is that they don’t distract from the rest of the interior. Instead, they offer a simple, solid backdrop to other, more important features. Whether that’s a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a potted plant, or simply a row of comfortable chairs makes no difference.

Light Filtering

Furthermore, honeycomb blinds offer light filtering, which is great for businesses. Slatted type blinds make you choose between no light exposure, or direct light exposure to varying degrees. However, direct light exposure is harsh and means potential damage from UV. UV can negatively impact people, plants, animals, and even bleach the color from fabrics. The light filtering provided by a set of closed, honeycomb blinds means gentle lighting for the duration of business hours without having to fuss with cords and adjusting rods.

Affordable Honeycomb Blinds for Businesses

What’s more important than appearances and functionality? Well, if you’re a small business or buying in bulk, the cost factors in pretty heavily. Fortunately, Domir offers blinds for businesses at a great price. Because we’re the manufacturer, you get a better price. That’s because you don’t have to pay the overhead costs of a middleman if you cut them out altogether! There’s no better deal than that.

Commercial Blinds for All Business Types

Commercial Blinds for All Business Types

Each business has its own needs in terms of design. Just the category a business falls into can greatly impact what type of design will be beneficial. When it comes to interior design, blinds can actually play a major role – especially for businesses. Domir Blinds offers blinds designs for all types of businesses. Let’s take a look at which commercial blinds designs are right for what purpose.

Print On Blinds Boost Marketing

Let’s start with one of our most business-focused blinds designs. Print on blinds are the ideal commercial blinds for any small business with an overt focus on sales. Corner stores, gas stations, and small grocery stores can benefit hugely from print on blinds.

Print on blinds are a standard shade type blind. They’re one solid piece of fabric that rolls up at the top and can be pulled down with a chain. Said chain can be mounted or left to hang loose. In fact, you’ve probably seen these types of shades in your high school classrooms.

What makes print on blinds different is that we can print any design you need onto these shades. For some businesses, these are used to display their logo or business name. A logo placement is perfect for coffee shops, book stores, or other more refined businesses. However, for those looking to make sales, print on blinds are the perfect place to display affiliated brand advertisements, regular deals and sales, or popular product prices. Print on blinds are one of the best marketing tactics you can use as a small corner store. High customer traffic means grabbing attention is vital. What better way to grab someone’s attention than to let them know you hold a beloved product, and at a great price?

Office Blinds That Project a Warm Image

For offices that are looking to project a warm image, you’ll need something different. Small doctor’s offices, apartment leasing offices, and other such spaces can benefit from appearing welcoming. Therefore, the Ninet is the best choice, as it’s one of our most welcoming and professional designs.

The Ninet is a combination of fabric blinds and standard, aluminum slats. Aluminum blinds are boring, cheap, and do a poor job of controlling light. With a layer of fabric on both sides, however, they can be just what an office needs. The Ninet allows sunlight to come in ambiently, even when slats are open. However, when slats are shut, the fabric supports the closed slats, ensuring no light is coming in through the cracks.

This simple and clean cut design is softened with that fabric lining, making your office appear smart, but welcoming.

Clean and Professional Commercial Blinds

Finally, if you have an office or commercial business that needs clean and professional blinds, we recommend Magic Lite. Magic Lite is made of wooden slats. These slats are wide and flat, allowing very effective overlap, fewer gaps for potential light leaks, and a very tidy appearance.

These blinds are easy to clean, resistant to damage in everyday use, and offer very effective light control. Therefore, you won’t be disappointed.

How to Clean Fabric Blinds

How to Clean Fabric Blinds

Cleaning blinds is something that confounds most people. The confusion only grows with more complex or delicate blinds designs. So, how does one go about cleaning fabric blinds? Domir Blinds, the blinds manufacturing professionals, are here to offer our best methods for how to clean fabric blinds in your home or business.

Remove Loose Dust

The first step to clean fabric blinds is to remove loose dust. This should be done first, especially if you intend to wash them. Getting your blinds wet, if they’re covered in loose dust, will make them harder to clean. All of the loose dust will clump together and stick to the blinds fabric.

To remove loose dust, you have a few options.

  • Use a duster. You can easily remove loose dust with a static duster. It won’t get everything, but it will remove enough to make the rest of the cleaning process easier.
  • Use a vacuum hose. A vacuum will also easily pull off loose dust. Even better, it will suck it straight into a vacuum bag instead of loosening it and allowing it to float free into your breathing space.
  • Use a lint roller. If you have a lint roller lying around, giving your fabric blinds a good once or twice over with it is a great way to remove loose dust. This will also pull out any pet hairs that have gotten threaded into the fabric. A vacuum or duster isn’t as likely to get these out.

Remove Remaining Dust

Loose dust is easy to remove. However, there’s always going to be more dust that’s settled into the fabric and harder to remove. For remaining dust, you have a couple of options for removal.

  • Use a bristle brush. If you have a clean, dry brush, like the type you would scrub your nails with, you can use this to free stuck-in dust. Gently brushing the fabric will loosen this dust, which you can suck up with a vacuum.
  • Wash the dust out. If you intend to wash your fabric blinds, you can go straight to washing them after removing the loose dust. The water will wash out whatever remains.

Stain Removal

If your fabric blinds have been stained, you probably started this cleaning process entirely to remove said stain. How does one go about stain removal in fabric blinds? The first step is testing whatever cleaner you intend to use on it.

Take a small amount of the cleaner you’re planning to use and put it onto a hidden part of the fabric blinds. Are your blinds longer than your window and a portion of them remains collapsed at the bottom? Test a part that’s hidden within the folds down there. That way, when you get to cleaning the part that’s visible, you can be sure your cleaner won’t bleach or further stain your blinds.

Wash Your Blinds

After ensuring your cleaner works as intended, remove your blinds from the window. Submerge them in half a bathtub of warm water and swish them back and forth gently. This will remove remaining dust. Then, apply your stain removal cleaner as needed. Rinse thoroughly, then collapse the blinds as intended and squeeze them to remove excess water. Finally, lay them out on some clean, hard flooring, or hang them back up to dry.
