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

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.

Improve Your RV Blinds by Shopping Domir

There are so many things in life that are often overlooked by manufacturers and stores alike. We strive to consider the use of our products for people of all types. That’s why we want to shine a light on how you can improve your RV blinds, because we know campers and travelers are frequently overlooked outside of specialized products. Here’s how we can help.

RV Manufacturing Standards

The first thing we want to talk about is RV manufacturing standards. While there are tons of high class RVs that are made for clients with deep pockets, there are certain things that run consistent in the industry. One such thing is the low quality of RV blinds.

When RV manufacturing companies put together a new RV, the goal is to provide the best possible appearance to potential buyers. Under the surface, there are often tons of corners that have been cut. While higher priced RVs have less cut corners, they still, often, maintain the same low quality in areas that are overlooked. One such area is the blinds. 

Almost every new RV owner is looking out for things like the size of the bathroom, how much expandable space the RV has, and the quality of things like the carpet or kitchen appliances. Every time, almost without fail, no one notices the blinds. This allows companies to put in cheap, slatted, metal blinds, or low quality honeycomb blinds.

Impact on Travel

Why do the blinds in an RV matter? The answer is simple: RV blinds are the one thing giving you privacy while you’re out and about in the world, traveling. When you park an RV for the night, you’re likely doing so near others in the same boat. That means people who could see in through your windows. When parked for the night, any light inside the RV will turn windows into something like a TV screen. Anyone outside can see anything inside, like a movie – and you’re the star.

Plus, blinds aren’t just for privacy. They’re also for keeping sunlight under control. Cheap blinds are often made without much regard to efficiency. As long as they block out most of the light, people will accept them. 

The thing is, you deserve better. You paid good money on an RV so that you could have a high quality traveling experience. Light that obscures your laptop screen, sun-bleaches the expensive couch upholstery, and potentially allow in unwanted gazes is not what you signed up for.

RV Blinds

The solution is taking the quality of your RV blinds into your own hands. Replacing blinds in an RV means getting to pick out exactly the qualities you want in blinds. Check out the different styles available from our products list and imagine how those would improve your travels. We’ve got blackout screens, light-filtering roller screens, beautiful honeycomb blinds of the highest quality, hybrid blinds, and more. Call us if you have questions on how to order and we’ll be happy to help you out.

How to Prevent Sun Bleaching Without Foregoing Sunlight

How to Prevent Sun Bleaching Without Foregoing Sunlight

Sunlight is one of the most well-loved parts of living on planet Earth. However, it can also cause a litany of problems. One such problem is sun bleaching. You can avoid sun bleaching by keeping your curtains closed, but then your home is left in the dark. How do we find a happy medium? Is it possible to prevent sun bleaching without shutting out the sun completely? Of course you can! Here’s how Domir Blinds can save your belongings from damage without depriving you of the sunlight you love.

What Causes Sun Bleaching?

Sun bleaching is what when a colored item is exposed to direct sunlight often. The UV rays in the sunlight break down the dye molecules. That means a blanket, shirt, or even a plastic figurine can have the dye taken right out of it just by sitting in the sun!

You can see this happening often with blankets on a made bed. One corner of the bed may be in line with the sunlight coming in through the bedroom window. That one corner, exposed to the same sun every day, will slowly become lighter than the rest of the blanket. This phenomenon is also easy to spot with outdoor kids’ toys, such as slides, child-sized picnic tables, and rubber balls. If left outside in the sun, they will lose their vibrant colors over time.

Blocking UV Rays

So, the solution to prevent sun bleaching is simple. You simply need to block UV rays. The easiest way to do this is by shutting out sunlight entirely. Keeping the curtains closed in your guest room will protect the blankets there from getting damaged. However, what about the rest of your home? If you shut all the curtains when the sun is out, you’ll live in perpetual darkness. This isn’t an option for most people. Not only does a complete lack of sunlight cost more in electric to light a home, but can also lead to depression and other health problems from a lack of vitamin D.

Letting in Sunlight

Instead of blocking out sunlight, let it all come flooding in! As long as something is screening out UV rays, the sun will do no harm to you or your belongings. That’s where Domir Blinds comes in. We have a number of blinds available that provide a UV screen.

For example, our roller screens are easy to pull down and block out UV. They let in plenty of sunlight though. Plus, you can still see outside even with roller screens down. However, just because you can see out of a roller screen doesn’t mean your neighbors can see in. Roller screens provide one-way visibility, making them fantastic for blocking UV and unwanted eyes. Furthermore, roller screens also provide insulation, keeping out unwanted heat in the summer and saving you money on cooling.

Order Domir

If you want blinds that will improve all aspects of home life, we’ve got what you need at Domir. If roller screens aren’t your style, check out our sheer vertical blinds and other designs that block UV. Give us a call if you need help ordering or have questions about our products.

Get Ready for the Summer Sun by Upgrading Your Blinds

The summer sun is on its way. Is your home prepared? If your blinds are outdated or simply not doing their job, late spring is the perfect time for upgrading your blinds. Here are some things your blinds are responsible for this summer. Are yours going to be doing their job?

Regulating Temperature

First and foremost, your blinds are a key element in your home’s temperature regulation. Did you know having blinds that insulate can save you a significant amount of money on cooling? Without blinds, sunlight will come straight through your window, heating up your home much faster than if it was stopped short at the blinds. Metal, slatted blinds are poor insulators, even when completely closed. But who wants to sit in the dark all summer? A happy medium is better for everyone.

Blocking UV

Want to protect your skin? A lot of people don’t realize that they’re just as susceptible to sunburns and skin damage from inside as they are outside. If you’re in direct sunlight through a window, it can actually amplify the effects, like a magnifying glass.

There are many kinds of blinds, such as honeycomb blinds, the ninet, and roller screens that block out UV while still letting in the glow of sunlight that you enjoy so much during this time of year.

Preventing Sun-Bleaching

Because our blinds are responsible for blocking out UV, they’re also responsible for preventing sun-bleaching. Damage caused to fabrics by the sun is specifically attributed to the UV in sunlight. Therefore, if you take the UV out of the equation, sunlight is no longer a threat to that lovely blanket you have across your bed.

Keeping Screens Visible

Direct sunlight does more than just threaten us with damage, it also threatens us with extreme inconvenience. Sure, sure, there might be bigger problems in the world than the glare of the sun on your TV screen. However, that doesn’t mean screen glare won’t have the power to drive you up the wall this summer. 

Make your relaxing time actually relaxing by protecting your screen from direct sunlight and upgrading your blinds. That goes for the TV, the computer, a handheld game console, or even your cellphone. If you find yourself squinting at a screen because the sun is getting in your way, your blinds are not doing their job.

Protecting Your Eyes

Screen glare is one inconvenience, but sunlight getting directly in your eyes is another. Not only is direct sunlight in your eyes irritating and inconvenient, it’s also bad for your eyes. Instead of squinting against the evening sun shining directly in your face through the kitchen window, get the best of both worlds with a roller screen or the ninet. Both allow sunlight to filter in through them without allowing direct rays to hit you in the eyes.

Giving You Privacy While Letting in Sun

And, last but not least, we can’t disregard privacy. Your blinds are responsible for giving you privacy from the world around you. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice daylight to get it either. By upgrading your blinds with a roller screen, honeycomb blinds, or sheer vertical blinds, you can maintain  your privacy while still enjoying daylight hours. Light up your home without sacrificing what matters. Give us a call at Domir Blinds if you have any questions about our products or how to order.
