Sheer Blinds for Glass Office Dividers

If you run an office with a lot of glass dividers, you may have run into some problems. These kinds of glass dividers are commonly put between individual offices to allow the space to feel larger. However, what was meant to be innovative and allow light to flow can actually come with a low of downsides. Not sure what I mean? Let’s look deeper.

Office Space Distraction

The first issue with glass dividers and walls is their proclivity to invite distraction. Being able to see outside of your office can allow for some great views, can make it seem less intimidating to others, and can allow in more light. However, it also exposes you to everyone walking by, people dropping things, people chatting nearby, and more. It’s an easy way to lead to distractibility. Even if you’re not the most distractible person in the office, every glance up – a natural reaction from anyone when there’s a sudden movement nearby – is a break from concentration. Tired of feeling like you’re being interrupted by people just going about their day? It can be solved with blinds for glass office dividers.

The Importance of Privacy

The other reason blinds for glass office dividers can be life saving is because of how important privacy is. Glass office dividers and walls don’t allow for any privacy within the office. Whether you’re sensitive to criticism, have anxiety, or just plain like to be alone, having privacy matters. An office with glass walls may allow lightflow, but it also turns your office into something of an exhibit. 

How Blinds Help

By putting up blinds, you can cut out distractions and discomfort from your daily work life. Blinds for glass office dividers allow you to take back your personal space and take control of your concentration again. Plus, if you’re in charge and have many employees with offices like this, adding blinds to their offices will improve production and give them more autonomy over how much privacy they have. Any office worker would be grateful for that.

Blinds for Glass Office Dividers

What blinds are good for this kind of use? Old-fashioned, metal blinds with slats look unattractive, dated, and are prone to bending, which only makes them look worse. The solution is ordering something more up-to-date, like sheer vertical blinds. While Domir has a lot of blinds to offer, many of which would work just fine, we feel sheer vertical blinds are the best choice for glass office walls.

Sheer vertical blinds are similar in appearance to curtains – looking classy and comfortable – but have more functionality than curtains. They’re long, which means they can be used floor to ceiling. Furthermore, they come in two layers. The first layer completely blocks out the view and light, which is great for someone who wants to feel alone and avoid distraction. Pull back that layer and there’s a second one. The second layer is sheer, allowing light in while creating a one-way viewing effect. This will allow privacy and light flow while giving employees the ability to see out. This is great if you’re looking to make the office space feel a little bigger.

If you want to buy blinds for a large space, such as a commercial office, remember: order from Domir. Because we’re the manufacturer, you save money from ordering straight from us. Ordering directly cuts out middleman profits and gives you the opportunity to save up to 50% on orders over $500. Give us a call if you have questions about our products or how to order.

Nursery Blinds That Help with Daytime Naps

Nursery Blinds That Help with Daytime Naps

Having a baby at home can be a real challenge, especially if you have inefficient, standard blinds. Standard blinds pose all kinds of hazards to toddlers, but how about their effect during infancy? Let’s take a moment to talk about how nursery blinds can affect a baby’s ability to nap during the day and how Domir can help.

Circadian Rhythm

Have you ever heard of circadian rhythm? That’s the name of your notorious ‘internal clock.’ Your circadian rhythm is what makes you sleepy when the sun goes down and what wakes you up when it rises. Not everyone has a circadian rhythm that does that, as the circadian rhythm is actually pretty easy to mess up.

One thing that can mess up the circadian rhythm is sleeping with the lights on or doing wakeful activities in the dark. Your brain begins associating these light levels with the activity taking place and then doesn’t go into the proper wake or sleep mode when the lighting changes.

Because of this, it’s important that, growing up, children are given a consistent difference between nighttime and daytime lighting. This helps them develop a strong circadian rhythm, allowing them better sleep and a more easily-adhered-to schedule. 

Standard Blinds

Because standard blinds are not made with good lighting control in mind, they let in a lot of light during the day. Therefore, if you put your infant down for a nap in the middle of the day, the room is going to be fairly illuminated. This can disrupt the newly-developing rhythm your baby is acquiring and lead to trouble sleeping at night, fear of the dark, and sleep pattern issues in the years to come.

By choosing nursery blinds that allow precision light control, you can completely darken the nursery before putting your infant down for a nap. Of course, some dull lights on a mobile or crib attachment won’t cause any issues and will allow them the ability to see their surroundings a bit more. However, the bright light of day, signaling awake-time, will be kept at bay. Domir has many options for blinds that can achieve this. Let’s see what some of those options are.

Precision Light Control

There are many styles of blinds that are able to black out a room during the day. Here are the ones you can find at Domir Blinds.

Shades

Roller shades are simple. They’re the kind of blinds you see in classrooms – solid sheets of material that roll up at the top. These are just as great as nursery blinds. When pulled down, they cover the window seamlessly, except for at their sides. If you’re aiming for complete darkness, side channels, which attach to the window frame, will get rid of any gaps where light could sneak through.

Magic Lite

Magic Lite is a chic and attractive design. This design is made with wide, completely overlapping slats. These slats, when controlled, can open completely to allow complete exposure. Or, if desired, can overlap completely to block all light from entering the room.

Shop Domir

When you shop Domir Blinds, you’re buying directly from the manufacturer. That means you cut out the middleman costs added on by distributors. Instead of paying more to give outlet stores a profit, put in your order to Domir today. We look forward to assisting you in improving the quality and comfort of your home’s lighting.

Blinds from the Manufacturer Vs. Blinds from the Store

Blinds from the Manufacturer Vs. Blinds from the Store

Considering getting new blinds for your home or business? Domir blinds is here today to tell you a little bit about why you should order blinds from the manufacturer instead of buying them in-stores. Let’s get started!

Bulk Orders

The first perk to ordering blinds from the manufacturer rather than in-stores is that you can order in bulk. For businesses like hotels or offices, this is much more convenient. Stores only have a limited amount of blinds – usually enough for homeowners and such. If you need a lot of blinds and you want them all at once, ordering from the manufacturer can guarantee you get as much as you need. 

Better Options

Plus, you won’t get this many options in-stores. When stores order their products, they pick and choose which products from the manufacturer fit in with their brand. That means some really great blinds designs fall by the wayside. When you pick a design from us, you get to look through all of our options and make custom orders. Many of our blinds can be ordered with custom colors on one or both sides. Plus, the fascia can also be customized. Don’t settle for a limited selection in-stores; see the whole range of options from the manufacturer. 

All in One Place

When you order from us, you can be sure we have everything you need for your blinds here as well. You can get motorization, custom colors, side channels, skylight blinds, and so much more. When buying blinds from a store, you might have to go elsewhere to find the accessories you need. That’s a lot more work when you could get the entire order done in one go with Domir.

Better Prices

One of the biggest and most important differences between manufacturer and in-store orders is the price. We, as the manufacturer, create all of the blinds in the area. Stores contact us to buy the stock they need for their store. In order to actually turn a profit, these stores will sell them for more than they paid us, the manufacturer. If they sold them at the same, low price we do, they wouldn’t make any money selling them.

So, when it comes time to make your order, make the cost-effective choice of cutting out the middleman. You don’t need to pay extra just for a more limited selection. When you order directly from Domir Blinds, you get the lowest price possible and are even eligible for cost cuts based on how big your order is. For businesses especially, it’s worth noting that orders over $500 can be cut by as much as 50% off. Now that’s what we call a great deal.

Easy Methods for Cleaning Blinds

Easy Methods for Cleaning Blinds

Blinds can quickly get dusty or dirty and leave your home looking all the worse for it. However, cleaning them can be really tricky. If you want cleaning blinds to be made easy, you’ve come to the right place! Domir Blinds being the blind professionals of Toronto, we know a thing or two about cleaning blinds. Here are the easiest methods for getting your blinds looking like new.

Sock Dusting

For many of us, metal or plastic slatted blinds are the way to go. These blinds may have been installed already when we moved in. Or, they may have just been the affordable option when we bought them. No matter the case, these blinds are notoriously dusty. Because they’re made up of so many different slats, they can be hard to dust without bending them. Luckily for you, there’s a simple method that almost anyone can do.

Grab yourself a spare sock that can be slipped over one hand. No need to find a loner as it can just be washed when you’re done. Next, pinch each slat between your sock-covered thumb and index finger and slide your sock across the entire slat. This is a very effective way to pick up dust from these somewhat touchy blinds. Plus, it doesn’t require any sprays, disassembly, or complex instructions.

Lint Rolling

For those of us who have fabric blinds, sock dusting isn’t really an option. Fabric blinds became a huge hit in the first decade of the 2000s. They look cozy, they diffuse light, and, well, they also collect a lot of dust. Because these blinds are usually a solid piece of fabric or two, there aren’t any slats to pinch.

Instead, buy yourself a cheap lint roller and run it over the surface of your blinds. When your blinds are completely extended, they should be relatively flat. Even if they still maintain some of their accordion shape, you can go over each row of fabric easily. The sticky lint roller will grab up most of the offending dust pretty effectively. Even if they’re not as clean as new, most of the remaining dust will be too small for the eye to really see.

Tub Soaking

Not all problems are dust related! Slatted kitchen blinds are often splattered with food or grease after years of doing dishes right in front of them. However, trying to lean over the sink to wipe at each individual spot is difficult for most people. Luckily, there’s a fairly easy solution!

  • Start by taking down your dirty blinds and bring them with you to the bathroom.
  • Fill your tub with about 4 inches of hot water.
  • While the tub is filling, add in some grease-cutting soap, like what you use to wash your dishes. Ensure you’ve added enough that the water gets a little sudsy.
  • Then, put your blinds into the tub to soak. Anywhere from 20-60 minutes may be enough to do the trick.
  • Once your blinds have had time to soak, you can use a cloth (or a sock) to go over each slat. Any food splatters or grease should come off easily. You may need to rinse the cloth throughout the cleaning process if there was a lot of grease on your blinds.
  • Last, drain the tub and use the shower head to rinse any remaining soap from the blinds.
  • Let them sit on a towel to drip dry for an hour or so and then hang them back up!
