Roller Shades for Office Windows

Roller Shades for Office Windows

Keeping an office functional requires many considerations. In the modern era, one such consideration is lighting control. Maybe 80 years ago, more light was a better thing. It would have made it easier to see that paper you’re hunched over. However, these days, we’ve all got computer screens – and those are no friend to sunlight. Here are some reasons why roller shades are the right choice for office windows.

Clean, Sleek Look

Roller shades have a lot of benefits, visually. First and foremost, they have a very clean, sleek appearance to them. Their simplistic design fits well in an office space. If your office aesthetic is utilitarian, they fit right in. If it’s not, well, they don’t distract from whatever fabulous decor you have displayed. They’re a great, no-nonsense look for any office.

Plus, a simply design like roller shades for office windows is great at preventing distraction as well as light leaking. They completely block out what’s going on outside when closed. 

If you incorporate side channels, not even the very edges can give way to the afternoon sun. That can make all the difference in employee focus. After all, slatted blinds have holes in them for their ladder strings. Even one of those tiny holes can put a bright sunspot right in the middle of someone’s computer screen. Roller shades remove that risk completely.

Blackout and Screen

Blackout roller shades are the perfect choice if you want to banish sunlight for good – at least when the blinds are down. Pairing them with side channels and lowering them completely is like removing the window. However, if you’re not aiming to remove all of the sunlight, we’ve got another option.

Roller screens come with all of the simplicity of design that blackout shades do, but without the sun-banishing effect. Roller screens, instead, filter light. This prevents direct sunlight from getting inside and, instead, offers an ambient glow. If you work in an office that thrives on a bright, airy space, this is a great solution.

Corporate or Home Office

Roller shades are great for office windows in corporate buildings or in home offices. All of the benefits are present in both spaces. However, something extra to consider for home offices is that these shades are easy to clean and offer privacy as well. Roller screens are possible to see outside through, but prevent others from looking back in. These one-way screens are perfect for enjoying the view without screen glare or nosy neighbors looking back at you.

Doctor’s Office and Clinic Blinds in Toronto

Doctor's Office and Clinic Blinds in Toronto

If you have a clinic or doctor’s office in Toronto, you’re in the right place to get the best deal on blinds. Replace clinic blinds with affordable upgrades from Domir. Here’s what we have to offer that we think would be perfect for your office setting.

Warm Appearance

If you’re outfitting a doctor’s office or clinic with new blinds, one of the important things to keep in mind is appearance. Blinds aren’t all made the same. Appearance matters – especially in a doctor’s office. If you’re hoping to put patients at ease, you’ll want something warm in appearance. Who knew blinds could be warm in appearance? Well, the pros at Domir did!

Warm blinds for a doctor’s office or clinic can come in many forms. However, our favorites are The Ninet and honeycomb blinds. These fabric blinds are great for adding a soft touch to the room’s decor. Plus, if you opt for The Ninet, you get great lighting control. Therefore, you can also keep the light levels in your office comfortable for those waiting.

The Ninet is made up of slatted blinds, covered in a layer of fabric on each side. This gives you a stylish, warm appearance on the outside, with fantastic lighting control on the inside. The fabric sides keep light ambient at all times. However, with a flick of the wrist, using the adjustment rod, you can lower light levels or even prevent sun from entering at all.

Sleek, with High Level Control

Some doctor’s offices and clinic blinds should aim away from cozy and more toward sleek. Expensive offices meant to impress more exclusive clientele may need less comfort and more style. In those cases, something like Magic Lite is a better choice.

Magic Lite doesn’t just look stylish and sleek, it also comes with high level lighting control. Using the cords, you can adjust the wide, flat slats to go from complete exposure to complete blackout. This is an excellent feature for blinds in any office space where direct sunlight may cause discomfort. Keep waiting patients and staff likewise comfortable by blocking out direct sunlight in style.

Motorized and Automated

As with every kind of office space, we always recommend considering motorization and automation. Blinds automation is convenient for any location, but especially a place of work. Instead of staff having to walk around the waiting room each morning and afternoon to adjust the blinds, let automation do it for you.

Almost any of Domir Blinds’ blinds selection can be motorized. Motorizing blinds is as simple as making some motorized connections behind the fascia. Then, you can connect to the blinds with an app on your smart device – something present in most offices. From there, you can adjust the blinds from a distance or set up timed adjustments.

We’re a manufacturer, which means you don’t pay any additional overhead prices like in department or hardware stores. Plus, we don’t run out of stock.

3 Ways Blinds Affect Your Interior Design

3 Ways Blinds Affect Your Interior Design

Your interior design is more than just the rug pattern you choose and the color of flowers you prefer. Every little element of your interior design makes an impact on that overall impression. Yes, even blinds affect your interior design outcome! In fact, we’ve put together 3 ways they make an impact. Let’s take a quick look at what those are.

1. Light Exposure

It seems obvious that the purpose of blinds is to affect light exposure. However, many people don’t consider that this means their blinds affect their interior design. Sure, you may not have any trouble sleeping through the morning sun, but will your room be dark all day? The sun may not reflect off your laptop screen but is there enough to light your walking path?

When choosing blinds for your interior, be sure to consider how the light exposure capabilities will impact the appearance of your home. If opting for something that will keep the place completely dark, be sure to consider if your home will get bright enough with some blinds adjustment. Otherwise, you may want to check out other blackout styles with better exposure when adjusted. Unless, of course, you do want your home to be dark all day. For some people, that’s the interior design they’re after.

2. Color

Naturally, the color of your blinds will affect your interior design. But, did you know you can choose the color you buy? A lot of people see white blinds in stores and on website homepages and assume this is just how blinds are. It’s not so! Blinds can oftentimes be bought in a variety of colors. For example, Domir Blinds offers a wide variety of blinds colors. You simply have to request the color you want when ordering. If you want to know the colors available from any manufacturer, you should always ask. You may find there are a lot more options than you realized.

Colored blinds are a great way to make a statement in your home design. Instead of settling for plain white, imagine a pop of bright blue or red, accenting the rest of your interior. Use your gut and your eye for design and colorful blinds may just change your life.

3. Style

Next up is style. I’m sure you’ve got a preference for certain styles of blinds over others, but does the style match your interior? How can you make it match more? One great example of a blinds style that affects interior design is honeycomb blinds. These blinds, made of fabric, create a softness in a room. This is the exact opposite of standard, slatted blinds, which give a hard, low-quality feel to a room.

Mix and match stylistic choices to bring your interior design up to a new level. Consider white Magic Lite blinds paired with bright, colorful curtains on either side. The bold, hard lines of the Magic Lite will be softened by the colorful curtain patterns. The colorful patterns will be made more “adult” with the serious shape of the Magic Lite blinds.

Home Office Blinds for Students and Professionals

Home Office Blinds for Students and Professionals

Having a home office can be such a relief for working professionals and college students. However, that relief can quickly fade if your home office has the wrong blinds. Blinds make a huge difference in the effectiveness of a home office for a number of reasons. Let’s check out some of those reasons and which blinds are best for you.

Screen Glare

A big part of using a home office in the 21st century is using a computer. However, using a computer is easier said than done if you’ve got some big windows and lots of sunlight. Sunlight hitting a screen directly makes it impossible to see. Or, perhaps even worse, it makes it almost impossible to see and leaves you squinting and acquiring a tension headache.

Prevent all of that trouble by preventing screen glare. The blinds you use in your home office can put a stop to the glare and make using a computer comfortable and easy. Plus, they can do that without plunging your entire office into pitch darkness.

Using a blinds design like the Ninet will allow a lovely glow into your office from the sun outside. However, direct rays will be blocked entirely, along with harmful UV.

Light and Awakeness

It may be tempting to simply opt for blackout shades in your home office. However, as far as home office blinds go, it’s better to get some that don’t make the room dark. How dark a room can have a lot to do with how awake and focused you are. If you’re generally awake during the day and asleep at night, your brain associates darkness with sleep. The darker a room is, the more your brain is going to want to shut off for sleep. If you’re trying to get work done, that’s not really the goal, is it?

Another great home office blinds option that will prevent screen glare while allowing plenty of light in is roller screens. Roller screens filter sunlight, blocking UV and the harshness of direct sunlight while allowing the light in. They’re sleek and easy to keep clean. Plus, if you like your office to be completely in control, you’ll love side channels.

Side channels are mounted to the inside of the window frame. The edges of roller screens and shades rest in the slots of the side channels, preventing them from swinging back and forth. Plus, with the sides blocked off, no errant rays of sunlight can slip past the sides of your roller blinds.

The Best Home Office Blinds

As you can see, the Ninet and roller screens are great options for home office blinds. However, we don’t want to leave out another favorite: Magic Lite. Magic Lite blinds have the added bonus of looking amazing. They’re sleek, rather than cozy. If you prefer your home office to feel contemporary, these are the choice for you. Their design offers complete exposure control, and slats can be angled upward so direct light isn’t obscuring your computer screen.

No matter what blinds design you fall in love with, you can get it from Domir Blinds in Toronto. Call us today if you have questions. We’re happy to help!
