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

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.

Accessible Blinds for High Windows

Accessible Blinds for High Windows

It’s incredibly common for office buildings, clinics, and much more to have high windows in them. These let in lots of natural light and create a more attractive building. However, they pose a bit of a problem for anyone who wants the ability to block out unwanted sunlight. Installing blinds over them is one thing, but controlling those blinds is another. Domir Blinds has the perfect solution for those needing accessible blinds for high windows. Let’s check out what it is!

Motorized Blinds

If you’ve heard of motorized blinds before, this is probably a pretty obvious solution. However, tons of people struggle with high, inaccessible windows every day, and have no idea they could be motorized. Motorized blinds are just like any other blinds, but with one huge difference. At the top of the blinds, there’s a motorized mechanism, allowing you to control them from out of reach. 

Motorized blinds are the ideal solution for any high windows. If you find your office or other kind of interior flooded with direct sunlight as the sun rises or sets, these are a must-have.

Automated Blinds

Not only are motorized blinds able to be controlled indirectly, they can also be automated. If you have a specific time of day that you want your blinds to open or close, simply set them up to do so at those times. They’ll continue to open and close at those times unless told to do otherwise. This is convenient for stores that want privacy when closed, offices where the rising or setting sun can cause visibility issues, and anywhere with high windows.

Accessible from Anywhere

How exactly do you control motorized blinds? Is there a control panel that’s mounted on the wall? Or, perhaps there’s a remote that comes with them? Wrong on both accounts. Motorized blinds have evolved with the times and can be controlled from any smart device just by downloading an app.

This convenient ability to control your blinds from anywhere makes it possible to check if they’re opened or closed, even from far away. This kind of unrestricted access is especially useful for those with plants that need controlled daylight while you’re away. Or, if you’re the sole controller for a set of office blinds, you can adjust them at the request of others working at the office, even while you’re off the clock.

Convenience in Any Style

You may be wondering, what do motorized blinds look like? Surely they’re simplistic and utilitarian. Fortunately, this is not the case. Any of the blinds offered by Domir can be made motorized. Motorized blinds are made accessible by attaching the motor to any blind design. That means accessible blinds and stylish ones too.

If you’re interested in creating better accessibility for blinds on high windows, Domir is the place to call. Let us know if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to help you get started or make an order.
