The Best Choices for Library Blinds

Choosing blinds for any location can be a tricky feat. However, somewhere specialized is even harder. That’s because specialized locations have their very own needs and requirements. The perfect environment for one thing may be detrimental to another. So, if you’re trying to determine the best choice for library blinds, Domir has your back. What exactly is it that a library needs in blinds? Let’s take a look.

Keep Out Direct Sunlight

The first thing one must consider when choosing blinds for a library is that libraries are home to countless books. Books can begin to degrade under less than ideal circumstances. This is even more important to keep in mind if the library you’re buying for has old or historic documents or tomes.

One thing that can quickly break down paper and old parchment is direct sunlight. The same ultraviolet light that causes fading and sunburns can also destroy paper over time. That’s why it’s best to keep direct sunlight out of libraries altogether.

Enough Light for Reading

The thing is, libraries are filled with reading and searching for books. To do both of those things, you need to be able to see. Therefore, you’ll need enough light to see by. Overhead lights can leave much to be desired. Their dull, yellow glow can be quite depressing and hard to see under. So, what’s the next best thing from direct sunlight? Easy – indirect sunlight.

Perfect Library Blinds

Just because you want to protect your books from ultraviolet light doesn’t mean you need to shut off windows entirely. There are plenty of blinds that will block out UV rays while still letting in tons of light. Those are the ideal library blinds. So, what kind of blinds do we recommend, keeping that in mind?

Roller screens are a fantastic choice for library blinds. They have UV protection but let in plenty of light, allowing you to read comfortably. Roller screens come with another bonus. They’re one-way and allow for privacy within the library. That makes them great for library offices in addition to the main windows. You can enjoy your reading without worrying about passersby looking in on you while still enjoying the view from inside the library.

Library Skylights

Larger libraries may also have skylights that let in lots of sunlight. If you have a skylight in your library that risks damaging books with direct sunlight, we recommend installing skylight blinds. Skylight blinds are usually comprised of a screen of some kind, much like roller screens. They’re held in place using side channels and can be opened or closed via a motor. If you have a smart device, you can download the app used for controlling motorized blinds. This makes motorized blinds easy to get started with, allowing you to have maximum control of the light in your library.

If you have any questions or would like to make an order, give us a call at Domir Blinds. Don’t forget: we’re the manufacturer which means you can order cheaper from us than any other distributor in Toronto. Plus, you can get up to 50% off on large orders. That’s a fantastic deal for an order of library blinds. We look forward to hearing from you!

Roller Screens for High Rise Office Buildings

admin

Roller Screens for High Rise Office BuildingsIf you base your company out of a high rise office building, you know there’s a lot that goes into making the perfect work environment. Even if you have the whole floor to yourself, you have to outfit that space yourself. That includes window coverings. Trying to figure out what kind of blinds to buy for your office space can be tricky. Let’s check out why roller screens may be the best choice for you and your high rise office.

Light Filtering

Roller screens are a great solution for office buildings for a lot of different reasons. For one thing, they filter light. That means your office space will remain lit up throughout the day without direct sunlight causing problems. They keep your office space from overheating and help out employees by ensuring they don’t have direct sunlight in their eyes. On the other hand, they don’t block out all of the light, leaving your office space dark and depressing. Light-filtering, roller screens are the perfect office solution.

Computer Friendly

Because roller screens filter sunlight, you don’t have to worry about direct sunlight glaring on computer screens. If you work in an office, you know sunlight on your computer screen can put a wrench in your work efficiency. It’s hard to concentrate when you can’t see what you’re doing.

Improve Roller Screens

Regular blinds allow streaks of direct sunlight to enter a room, making it hard to see your computer screen. Because roller screens are one solid piece, you don’t have to worry about sunlight coming in through slats. However, there is the possibility of sunlight coming in around the sides of your roller screen. That’s why we suggest buying side channels to go with your roller screens. Side channels attach to the sides of the window frame. The sides of your roller screens are then placed into the channels, removing any gaps in window coverage. That means you’re guaranteed to have no light leakage.

Professional Appearance

Roller screens are the best in professional appearance. They’re a no-frills solution for your office window coverage. When you have roller screens installed, you get the best window coverage for the best price and without making your office look too casual.

You can get an even more professional appearance if you order print on blinds. Print on blinds will allow you to order a roller screen with your company logo on it. If your logo isn’t what you want on your print on blinds, you can even opt for designs used for company projects or sectors. Putting up company-related designs may help improve the morale of employees as it gives them something inspiring to look at. After all, plain roller screens look professional, but they don’t exactly spark creativity.

If you’re interested in buying blinds for your high rise office windows, give us a call and we’ll help you with your order. Let us know if you have any questions and our professionals at Domir Blinds will be sure to help. You can even get up to 50% off your order over $500.

How Proper Blinds Improve Your Sleep Quality

How Proper Blinds Improve Your Sleep QualityPeople in the modern world tend to be more frequently afflicted with sleep trouble. This can happen for a number of reason. The important thing to know is that, while there are a lot of causes, the kind of blinds you have can make a big impact. Lets take a look at how proper blinds can improve your sleep quality!

Block Out City Lights

One thing that’s undoubtedly made sleep harder for many is the imposing lights of the surrounding city. It doesn’t matter if you grew up in the city or you just moved there from the country. Our bodies are made to sleep in darkness. Even if you’ve grown used to the lights coming in through your window, you’ll sleep better with a dark room. It may take some getting used to, but it will pay off.

Blackout shades or other very efficient, light-blocking blinds, like Magic Lite, will keep the city lights at bay. Sleep well without street lights and neon signs brightening up your room.

Better Sleep Quality on Night Shift

If you work night shift, you may have a hard time getting really restful sleep. Trying to sleep when the sun is up can drastically lower the quality of your rest. Not only that, it can be hard getting to sleep in the first place.

Blocking out daylight completely, however, is difficult. Regular blinds just aren’t up for the job. This amount of light needs something made specifically for it. Replacing your bedroom blinds with blackout shades instead, or Magic Lite, may just do the trick. Blackout shades are the best option, really. If you pair these incredibly efficient shades with side channels, no light will make it in.

Implement Side Channels

Side channels are little tracks for your window shade. They’re attached to the sides of your window frame and the window shade will remain seated in the channels. This ensures no light comes in around the sides of your shades.

Side channels were created specifically for working environments where there are a lot of computers. They’re also used in presentation rooms where projectors need complete darkness. Using these in the home will keep your room dark and easy to sleep in, even during midday.

Darken the Nursery

While some babies sleep okay with sunlight drifting in, some don’t. Just like adults, every baby is different. Some sleep better when it’s dark. Even for those who can sleep during the daytime, putting them down for a nap in the dark is a great way to condition them to associate darkness with sleep. This will make it easier for them, as they grow older, to handle a dark room and fall asleep when laid down in one.

How to Babyproof Your Home Starting with the Blinds

How to Babyproof Your Home Starting with the BlindsBringing a new baby into your home is a huge undertaking. It can really change things about how your day to day life goes. Not only are you caring for a new child, you also have to deal with babyproofing. Babyproofing every part of your home within reach of a baby can make once-simple tasks a bit trickier. From opening cabinets to plugging things in, there’s always a barrier you have to get past. But, it doesn’t have to be that way with your blinds! Domir offers a great selection of babyproof blinds. You only have to choose which ones are right for you.

Going Cordless

There are a lot of methods to keeping babies safe from blinds. The cords pose a serious hazard as small children can get wrapped up in them and end up hurt. Some people choose to drape the cord to the blinds over a curtain rod, out of reach. However, this doesn’t look the best and the cord can always come loose, falling within reach again. It’s best, instead, to get cordless blinds!

Cordless blinds remove the need for a pull-cord altogether. You can raise and lower the blinds by pulling on them, or, if it suits you, by using your phone. Motorized blinds don’t require cords and they’re even more convenient. For someone who’s busy feeding or rocking a new baby, it’s much more convenient to pull out your phone. Cover or uncover as many windows as you like with the simple tap of your screen.

Ditch the Metal

Many common blinds are made up of metal slats. These are one of the cheap options and are often what’s already installed in a house when you move in. The unfortunate thing about metal slats is that a child pulling on them can easily bend them out of shape. This can really affect the put-together appearance you strive for in your home.

Opting for cloth or hardy, wooden blinds can solve this problem easily. Reaching hands won’t have any slats to grab onto with the sheer outer layer of the Ninet. Window shades and screens are also very effective with children around. Being one large piece, there are no parts that can bend or scratch your little one. Pairing shades and screens with side channels will ensure they stay put, even if provoked by the smallest member of the family. Now those are some babyproof blinds!

Easy to Clean

The next important consideration is how easy your blinds are to clean. All it takes is some baby food flung toward the kitchen window and your blinds can become a mess. This is where shades and screens really shine. They’re easy to wipe down in the case of a mess. Fabric blinds are less convenient in this scenario. However, we know that not everyone is keen on having more bland screens and shades.

If you want something that looks cozy, will stand up to prying fingers, and is easy to clean, the best choice is Magic Lite. Magic Lite is hardy, modern, and great at controlling the amount of light in your home. This is the ultimate window covering for families with young children.
