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.

Reduce Heat This Summer with Insulating Blinds

Reduce Heat This Summer with Insulating Blinds

Tired of the summer heat always driving your electric bill through the roof? Or, if you don’t have an air conditioner, you’re probably pretty overheated in your home. You might be surprised, but Domir Blinds can help with that. That’s because insulating blinds help reduce heat in the home. Let’s see how some new blinds might be able to help you save money and live more comfortably in the summertime.

How Does Insulation Work?

You might not have known that blinds can insulate. A lot of people don’t. The fact is, blinds can be very effective insulators. What is it that makes them insulate though?

It really comes down to what insulation is and how temperature changes. Heat is caused when atoms are moving very quickly. Cold is caused when atoms are moving very slowly. When hot and cold come into contact with each other, the hot and cold atoms collide. This collision leads to fast atoms bumping into slow atoms. The fast ones push the slow ones into a higher speed and the slow ones force the fast ones to slow down a bit. 

As time passes, the speed of the atoms’ vibration will find a middle ground. That is, unless the source of the heat is the entire outdoors. In that case, your home is likely to get very hot and make no noticeable difference to the rest of the world.

Insulation is any kind of middle ground between two contrasting temperatures. This will keep fast and slow atoms from interacting with each other and changing the temperature. 

Insulating Blinds

So, now that we’ve got the basics of insulation down, you might wonder how blinds do this. The truth is, it gets kind of complicated. Certain surfaces, like glass, transfer temperature very easily. That makes windows a huge temperature leaking point in our homes.

Covering a window with something solid that won’t transfer temperature as easily can mitigate the temperature leakage of the window. That makes fabric blinds and blinds with multiple layers of fabric great insulators. Fast atoms are forced to slow down if they want to move through something like fabric. The more times they have to move through a layer, the less intense their speed.

Choosing Your Blinds

So, which blinds are made up of insulating layers like this?

  • The Ninet is one of Domir’s original designs. These blinds are made up of two fabric layers with standard, slatted blinds between them. This allows you to control how much light enters your home while maintaining 100% privacy in all cases.
  • Honeycomb blinds allow less light control, but do a great job at insulating. These are made to be opened up or put down. When down, they provide two layers of insulating fabric.
  • Blackout roller shades are another great option. Because these are made with such a thick layer for blocking out sunlight, they can actually do a pretty good job insulating. Though, they are the inferior insulating choice when compared with the previous two options. These roller shades can be combines with side channels to prevent as much temperature leakage as possible while also blocking out sunlight.

Shop Domir

Regardless of which blinds are right for you, you can get them right here in Toronto from Domir. Because we’re the manufacturer, you can even cut out middleman price gauges. Get the best price you can from us. Give us a call if you have questions or would like help with your order.

How to Avoid Sun-Bleaching with Quality Blinds

How to Avoid Sun-Bleaching with Quality Blinds

Most people have had the misfortune of dealing with sun-bleaching at one point or another. Perhaps you left some clothes on a surface near a window for a little while. Or, maybe the bed in your guest room gets sun on it in the mornings and you noticed streaks of sun damage after a while of disuse. No matter what unfortunate piece of fabric has been sun-bleached in your home, Domir Blinds is here to help. Here’s how to avoid sun-bleaching in your home with quality blinds!

What is Sun-Bleaching?

You might not have thought about sun-bleaching on a deeper level before – most people haven’t. But, when it comes down to it, what is it that’s really causing sun-bleaching? As it turns out, like most other damage that the sun causes, the source for sun-bleaching is UV rays.

When UV rays hit a piece of fabric, they actually have a small chemical reaction with the dyes of the fabric. Over time, the dyes break down, causing the fabric to lighten in color. This is why, even if the whole room is illuminated, you’ll only get streaks of sun-bleaching where the sunlight was hitting directly.

Block Out the Sun

The most obvious solution to this kind of damage is blocking out the sun. After all, if you don’t have any sunlight in a room, you can’t get sun damage. For the more utilitarian homes, roller blackout shades might be the perfect solution. However, these aren’t the most attractive choice. 

For those of us who prefer our home to have some decorum, a more attractive, blackout blind is a better choice. For this, we highly recommend Magic Lite. The Magic Lite is made to be versatile. It can offer full exposure or complete blackout, depending on your needs. Its overlapping slats can give you whatever kind of exposure you need – even if that’s none at all.

Block Out the UV

If we’re being honest, most of us don’t prefer the room to be completely devoid of sunlight. The question then becomes how to avoid sun-bleaching without blocking out the sun. The answer is simple: block out just the UV.

Blocking out UV while letting in the sunshine is easier than you might expect. You simply need to filter the light. That’s right – you can filter the light. While light may seem like nothing to us, it’s a lot more than nothing if you look closely. Of course, seeing the UV particles isn’t necessary to get rid of them. It’s as easy as installing blinds that filter light.

A great example of quality blinds that filter out UV is The Ninet. This simplistic and gorgeous blinds design is a combination of traditional, slatted blinds and a sheer covering. The slatted blinds, placed between two sheer layers, are there for light control. The sheer layers provide privacy and filter out UV rays. This allows a room to be filled with sunlight without risking damage to fabrics within.
