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.

Cleaning Blinds is Easy with These Blinds Choices

A lot of people don’t put much consideration into cleaning blinds but, for some, it’s essential. Working in a cafe where food and dust on the blinds can become a big problem? Or are you trying to clean up after messy children? No matter why you need them, Domir Blinds has plenty of easy-to-clean options that will suit your home or business.

Magic Lite

If you want to have an easy time with cleaning blinds, most of the time, the best solution is to pick blinds that are simple in design. Magic Lite is the exception. These fantastic shutter blinds allow you the best light control you can ask for while still being easy to wipe down.

What sets them apart from regular blinds is that they’re not made of the flimsy aluminum that cheap blinds are so often produced with. The sturdy shutters allow easy wipe-down with a damp cloth or paper towels. If your problem is dust, a quality duster would also be effective.

Roller Shades

If you’re not as concerned with appearances as you are with functionality, roller shades might be right for you. These are best for spaces outside the home, appearance-wise, but can really be used anywhere. Roller shades do a great job of blocking out sunlight with little fuss to be had. Let in a little light by pulling them halfway down or block it all out by closing them entirely.

We also offer blackout shades. Blackout shades have the same type of design and appearance as regular roller shades. However, they do a much better job at blocking out daylight. These are the perfect solution for your windows if you work the night shift and need to sleep with the morning sun trying to get inside. Blackout shades are also incredibly effective for home theaters, nurseries, and home offices – all places that sometimes need to be dark during the day.

Both blackout shades and roller shades can be cleaned with ease. Because they’re one solid piece, you can easily wipe down spills, splatters, or anything else from its surface. A damp washcloth will do, or paper towels and cleaning spray. No matter your prefered method of cleaning, shades will pose no problem.

Print On Blinds

If you’re looking for blinds for your office space or commercial business, you’ll be pleased to find that print on blinds are also easy to clean. Print on blinds allow you to custom order window screens with whatever design you want on them. This allows fantastic logo placement, advertising, and other forms of brand management, right from the windows of your building. Let patrons or passersby see exactly what they’re walking past. The best part about print on blinds is that you can use them for many years to come. Even after a long time of use the dirty surfaces of your print on blinds can be easily scrubbed down and put back up.

Why Domir is the Best for Commercial Blinds

The difference between buying things for home purposes and commercial purposes can sometimes be astounding. For that reason, Domir Blinds wants you to know what makes our company the best choice for ordering commercial blinds in Toronto specifically.

Professional Choices

Ordering blinds for a professional or commercial setting is a bit different than ordering them for a home. While some of the choices cross over nicely, some choices are better left in the home. That makes finding the right blinds for a business a little trickier. After all, most blind manufacturers tend to aim their products at homeowners.

Domir Blinds has all the best choices for commercial blinds. Maybe you need roller screens or are in need of motorized blinds. We have it all. Make covering and controlling light flow through high windows a breeze. Keep your environment looking professional and straightforward. Plus, with some of our more sleek options, like blackout shades, you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged as easily as something like honeycomb blinds. Plus, you can order shades with your brand on them. Check out our print on blinds for a personalized experience.

Skylight Blinds

While some homes have skylights, there’s even more need for light control when there are skylights in commercial settings. While the glow of sunlight during the morning or afternoon can be great for lighting up an otherwise dim store, errant rays of direct sunlight can cause problems. Being able to easily shut out the midday sun so that it doesn’t get in customer or employee eyes is pretty essential.

We’re the Manufacturer

One of the most important reasons why Domir Blinds is a great place to buy commercial blinds is that we’re the manufacturer. If you want to buy commercial blinds in Toronto, a lot of the stores that present themselves as options are actually just middlemen between us and you. That means you get the same products that we sold to a dealer, but at a higher price. After all, they have to pay for their labor and turn a profit too.

Unfortunately for you, that means paying more. Why not cut out the middlemen and buy straight from the manufacturer?

Get a Great Deal on Commercial Blinds

Buying straight from us as a commercial buyer isn’t just cheaper, you can also get a great deal. Because commercial orders tend to be large, they can get pretty expensive. Never fear! When you make an order over $500 from Domir Blinds, you can get up to 50% off. You’re not going to find a deal that good from a third party dealer.

No matter what kind of blinds you’re looking for, you get the best quality for the most affordable price when you order straight from the source. When you’re ready to get your order started, contact us at Domir Blinds and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about our products. We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
