Blinds from the Manufacturer Vs. Blinds from the Store

Blinds from the Manufacturer Vs. Blinds from the Store

Considering getting new blinds for your home or business? Domir blinds is here today to tell you a little bit about why you should order blinds from the manufacturer instead of buying them in-stores. Let’s get started!

Bulk Orders

The first perk to ordering blinds from the manufacturer rather than in-stores is that you can order in bulk. For businesses like hotels or offices, this is much more convenient. Stores only have a limited amount of blinds – usually enough for homeowners and such. If you need a lot of blinds and you want them all at once, ordering from the manufacturer can guarantee you get as much as you need. 

Better Options

Plus, you won’t get this many options in-stores. When stores order their products, they pick and choose which products from the manufacturer fit in with their brand. That means some really great blinds designs fall by the wayside. When you pick a design from us, you get to look through all of our options and make custom orders. Many of our blinds can be ordered with custom colors on one or both sides. Plus, the fascia can also be customized. Don’t settle for a limited selection in-stores; see the whole range of options from the manufacturer. 

All in One Place

When you order from us, you can be sure we have everything you need for your blinds here as well. You can get motorization, custom colors, side channels, skylight blinds, and so much more. When buying blinds from a store, you might have to go elsewhere to find the accessories you need. That’s a lot more work when you could get the entire order done in one go with Domir.

Better Prices

One of the biggest and most important differences between manufacturer and in-store orders is the price. We, as the manufacturer, create all of the blinds in the area. Stores contact us to buy the stock they need for their store. In order to actually turn a profit, these stores will sell them for more than they paid us, the manufacturer. If they sold them at the same, low price we do, they wouldn’t make any money selling them.

So, when it comes time to make your order, make the cost-effective choice of cutting out the middleman. You don’t need to pay extra just for a more limited selection. When you order directly from Domir Blinds, you get the lowest price possible and are even eligible for cost cuts based on how big your order is. For businesses especially, it’s worth noting that orders over $500 can be cut by as much as 50% off. Now that’s what we call a great deal.

Easy Methods for Cleaning Blinds

Easy Methods for Cleaning Blinds

Blinds can quickly get dusty or dirty and leave your home looking all the worse for it. However, cleaning them can be really tricky. If you want cleaning blinds to be made easy, you’ve come to the right place! Domir Blinds being the blind professionals of Toronto, we know a thing or two about cleaning blinds. Here are the easiest methods for getting your blinds looking like new.

Sock Dusting

For many of us, metal or plastic slatted blinds are the way to go. These blinds may have been installed already when we moved in. Or, they may have just been the affordable option when we bought them. No matter the case, these blinds are notoriously dusty. Because they’re made up of so many different slats, they can be hard to dust without bending them. Luckily for you, there’s a simple method that almost anyone can do.

Grab yourself a spare sock that can be slipped over one hand. No need to find a loner as it can just be washed when you’re done. Next, pinch each slat between your sock-covered thumb and index finger and slide your sock across the entire slat. This is a very effective way to pick up dust from these somewhat touchy blinds. Plus, it doesn’t require any sprays, disassembly, or complex instructions.

Lint Rolling

For those of us who have fabric blinds, sock dusting isn’t really an option. Fabric blinds became a huge hit in the first decade of the 2000s. They look cozy, they diffuse light, and, well, they also collect a lot of dust. Because these blinds are usually a solid piece of fabric or two, there aren’t any slats to pinch.

Instead, buy yourself a cheap lint roller and run it over the surface of your blinds. When your blinds are completely extended, they should be relatively flat. Even if they still maintain some of their accordion shape, you can go over each row of fabric easily. The sticky lint roller will grab up most of the offending dust pretty effectively. Even if they’re not as clean as new, most of the remaining dust will be too small for the eye to really see.

Tub Soaking

Not all problems are dust related! Slatted kitchen blinds are often splattered with food or grease after years of doing dishes right in front of them. However, trying to lean over the sink to wipe at each individual spot is difficult for most people. Luckily, there’s a fairly easy solution!

  • Start by taking down your dirty blinds and bring them with you to the bathroom.
  • Fill your tub with about 4 inches of hot water.
  • While the tub is filling, add in some grease-cutting soap, like what you use to wash your dishes. Ensure you’ve added enough that the water gets a little sudsy.
  • Then, put your blinds into the tub to soak. Anywhere from 20-60 minutes may be enough to do the trick.
  • Once your blinds have had time to soak, you can use a cloth (or a sock) to go over each slat. Any food splatters or grease should come off easily. You may need to rinse the cloth throughout the cleaning process if there was a lot of grease on your blinds.
  • Last, drain the tub and use the shower head to rinse any remaining soap from the blinds.
  • Let them sit on a towel to drip dry for an hour or so and then hang them back up!
