Nursery Blinds That Help with Daytime Naps

Nursery Blinds That Help with Daytime Naps

Having a baby at home can be a real challenge, especially if you have inefficient, standard blinds. Standard blinds pose all kinds of hazards to toddlers, but how about their effect during infancy? Let’s take a moment to talk about how nursery blinds can affect a baby’s ability to nap during the day and how Domir can help.

Circadian Rhythm

Have you ever heard of circadian rhythm? That’s the name of your notorious ‘internal clock.’ Your circadian rhythm is what makes you sleepy when the sun goes down and what wakes you up when it rises. Not everyone has a circadian rhythm that does that, as the circadian rhythm is actually pretty easy to mess up.

One thing that can mess up the circadian rhythm is sleeping with the lights on or doing wakeful activities in the dark. Your brain begins associating these light levels with the activity taking place and then doesn’t go into the proper wake or sleep mode when the lighting changes.

Because of this, it’s important that, growing up, children are given a consistent difference between nighttime and daytime lighting. This helps them develop a strong circadian rhythm, allowing them better sleep and a more easily-adhered-to schedule. 

Standard Blinds

Because standard blinds are not made with good lighting control in mind, they let in a lot of light during the day. Therefore, if you put your infant down for a nap in the middle of the day, the room is going to be fairly illuminated. This can disrupt the newly-developing rhythm your baby is acquiring and lead to trouble sleeping at night, fear of the dark, and sleep pattern issues in the years to come.

By choosing nursery blinds that allow precision light control, you can completely darken the nursery before putting your infant down for a nap. Of course, some dull lights on a mobile or crib attachment won’t cause any issues and will allow them the ability to see their surroundings a bit more. However, the bright light of day, signaling awake-time, will be kept at bay. Domir has many options for blinds that can achieve this. Let’s see what some of those options are.

Precision Light Control

There are many styles of blinds that are able to black out a room during the day. Here are the ones you can find at Domir Blinds.


Roller shades are simple. They’re the kind of blinds you see in classrooms – solid sheets of material that roll up at the top. These are just as great as nursery blinds. When pulled down, they cover the window seamlessly, except for at their sides. If you’re aiming for complete darkness, side channels, which attach to the window frame, will get rid of any gaps where light could sneak through.

Magic Lite

Magic Lite is a chic and attractive design. This design is made with wide, completely overlapping slats. These slats, when controlled, can open completely to allow complete exposure. Or, if desired, can overlap completely to block all light from entering the room.

What Makes the Best Quality in Precision Blinds?

What Makes the Best Quality in Precision Blinds?

If you’ve been living your whole life with the same, simple blinds, you might not realize what you’re missing out on. Blinds can be so much more than thin, metal slats or a honeycomb shade. They can provide precision light control. This might not seem like an important feature, but you would be surprised how it can improve your life. Here’s how precision blinds can help you and what makes them great.

Blinds at Home

If you spend a lot of time at home, like most people, you’ve probably come across something bothersome with your blinds on more than one occasion. Let us jog your memory. 

  • Ever want to watch TV and have to fight with a ray of sunlight? Closing the blinds may block out most direct sunlight, but it can’t keep sun from coming through those holes where the slats are strung up. 
  • If you’ve ever had to drape a blanket over your window, your blinds need to be replaced. You should never have to rely on alternative coverings – that’s what your blinds are for!
  • Ever have a hard time seeing your computer screen because the blinds didn’t block out enough light? Direct rays and brightness alone can make seeing your screen difficult.
  • Have you had blankets or clothes fade or get sun bleached because of the direct sunlight in your bedroom? This should be a non-issue if your blinds are doing their job.

We’ve built precision blinds to overcome all of these problems.

Blinds at Work

Blinds at work rarely bring up unique problems from those found in the home. However, screen visibility is even more vital in the workplace. If you’re the owner of an office, you owe your employees an environment that they can work in without interruption or hassle. 

If you have yourself a private office, you may not even know your employees are struggling with light interference. They may feel it’s too petty to bring up. Check in with your employees and ask them if they need more light control in their work environment. These blinds at work will not only improve your employees’ quality of life, it will help them be their most productive with ease.

Precision Blinds

We’ve designed precision blinds to allow complete light control. When you have precision blinds installed, you can easily go from complete exposure to complete darkness – even at midday!

The question is, what makes blinds “precision”? Is there some kind of fancy requirement that separates precision blinds from average ones? No! The answer is, the ability to completely control your light exposure is what makes them precision. The more you can control your lighting, the more quality your precision blinds.

If you want your blinds to do their job and control the lighting in your home or office, we have two recommendations for you.

  1. The Ninet is great for people with casual lighting needs who are more interested in regulation and light flow than in exposure extremes. Like standard blinds, we make The Ninet with metal slats. However, there is a sheer layer of fabric on either side, filtering out UV rays and allowing a more consistent flow of light. Plus, you maintain the control you have with regular, slatted blinds to block out most of it or let most of it in.
  2. Magic Lite, on the other hand, focuses on complete control of direct exposure. These blinds are made with wide, flat slates that will take you from a room filled with direct sunlight to complete darkness in the flick of a wrist.

When you’re ready to buy yourself precision blinds, give us a call at Domir Blinds and we’ll point you in the right direction.

Child Friendly Blinds for Your Home

Child Friendly Blinds for Your Home

Tired of your kids pulling on the blinds and bending them? More worried about their safety around long, reachable cords? It’s time to get your home some child friendly blinds. Domir Blinds is the best source for child friendly blinds in Toronto and the GTA. Here’s what we have to offer for families like yours.

Covered Slats

To start, let’s look at the solutions to little hands that want to grab. It’s not uncommon for people’s metal, slatted blinds to get destroyed once they have a toddler in the house. After all, blinds look like something solid to hold onto, to the undiscerning eye. Plus, how is one to see outside without yanking the poor, abused slats out of the way? Children don’t realize the amount of damage they cause as they learn to understand the world around them. That’s why we have to surround them with furnishings that can withstand their torment.

One of the best ways to solve the slat-grabbing problem is to have blinds with no exposed slats. We have a few different types like this – most prominently, The Ninet. The Ninet is made of slats but also has two layers of sheer fabric, one on either side of the slats. This fabric covering not only offers privacy, it also deters little hands from getting a grip on the slats within.

Secured Cords

Next up, we need to talk about safety. Many blinds designs are not safe for small children. With long cords that reach to the floor, they pose a hazard of children getting wrapped up in them. While you can always hang excess cord length over the fascia, it’s easier and less prone to incident to buy child friendly blinds.

Once again, The Ninet is a great choice. These blinds come with a pulley cord that remains secured to the wall. This is much less likely to pose a risk to your child’s safety. Roller shades and screens also come with pulley cords. Not only are their cords safer, the shades and screens are also easy to clean and hard to damage. Therefore, if your child tries to see outside or play with the blinds, they’re not likely to do permanent harm.

Something More Sturdy

Want something more stylish and comfortable than roller screens or shades while still remaining sturdier than slatted blinds? Sheer vertical blinds are definitely worth considering. These blinds are comparable to curtains, though they run from floor to ceiling. These long, beautiful blinds come with two layers. One is a sheer screen, made to give you privacy in your home while still letting in light. The second layer blocks out light as well as the view. Sheer vertical blinds can be washed to keep them clean from dirty hands. They are also flexible, meaning no bent slats. There are no cords as they don’t need to be pulled up. It’s an all around win.

Stylish Blinds for An Unbeatable Price

Stylish Blinds for An Unbeatable Price

Tired of your blinds being cookie-cutter and lifeless? The standard, white, plastic or metal, slatted blinds are old news. Give yourself and your home some more stylish blinds by shopping Domir. It doesn’t matter what taste you have in interior design; we’ve got something for everyone. Check out some of our most stylish blinds below, and what makes them unforgettable.

Sheer Vertical Blinds

To start, let’s talk about blinds that have no slats at all. Domir Blinds’ sheer vertical blinds – or, Allusion blinds – are more like curtains than the standard blinds you’re so used to. These curtain-like blinds stand tall, from floor to ceiling, to cover windows of any size. Their luxurious appearance adds to the aesthetic of almost any kind of room. Plus, you can buy them in more than just white, which means a more personal touch.

We created Allusion blinds with many situations in mind; that’s why they’re made up of two different layers. Each layer has its own function. The first is sheer and screens sunlight. This layer allows you to see outside and let sunlight in without compromising your everyday privacy. Thick, quality fabric makes up the second layer. This layer blocks the view from both directions as well as keeping out sunlight. With both layers shut, you can darken the room. With just the sheet layer shut, you can let in light while keeping prying eyes out of your home. And, with all layers open, you can get clear, direct sunlight and allow an easy view from both directions.

The Ninet

Now, let’s talk slatted blinds. Slatted blinds are not all made the same. Ours are leaps and bounds better than the plain, standard, slatted blinds. For one, we have The Ninet. The Ninet is made up of slatted blinds, layered between two fabric panels. This gives them a similar appearance, overall, to honeycomb blinds. However, instead of having an uncontrolled stream of filtered light, you can also control the slatted interior to change how much light you’re getting. This makes them a fantastic choice for those who like having precision lighting.

They appear soft and clean-cut. That makes them great for casual homes that are meant to feel comfortable, but not luxurious.

Magic Lite

On the more sleek end of the slatted spectrum, we have Magic Lite. We make Magic Lite out of sturdy, wooden slats. These slats are flat and can overlap completely. This makes the Magic Lite great for precision lighting. You can go from complete exposure to complete blackout with a small adjustment.

These blinds are ideal for minimalist or country interiors. They pair well with other sleek features as well as soft features that need a stark, white contrast.
