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!


If your blinds are too far gone or you just need an upgrade, we understand completely. Domir Blinds is the #1 blinds manufacturer in Toronto. Come pay us a visit or call us if you have questions about our products or how to order.

Cover Hotel Windows with Sheer Vertical Blinds

Cover Hotel Windows with Sheer Vertical Blinds

Want your hotel to look extravagant without spending money on things it doesn’t need? Here’s an update for your hotel that’s cost effective, functional, and improves its overall appearance. It’s time to add sheer vertical blinds to your hotel windows. Why? Let’s take a look.

Beautiful Additions

The first great thing that sheer vertical blinds have to offer is their huge boost in room appearance. A hotel room with sheer vertical blinds is going to look elegant. These long, flowing blinds have a similar appearance to curtains. However, they’re more effective as blinds and their dual layers provide an additional layer of charm.

Effective as Blinds

Sheer vertical blinds, as you might guess, are functional as blinds. That makes them a great investment for a hotel. They don’t just look good, they work well too.

These blinds, being like curtains, can be used to cover standard windows, floor-to-ceiling windows, or even sliding glass doors. That makes them very versatile and allows them to work in just about any kind of hotel room.

Plus, while sheer vertical blinds look similar to curtains, they actually do more. These blinds have two layers of fabric. The first is sheer, allowing filtered sunlight into the room. This sheer layer also allows guests to look outside without others being able to look in. They’ll appreciate the additional privacy.

The second layer is thicker and made to block out more light as well as block the view. This layer is shut for maximum privacy and light blockage. Plus, our sheer vertical blinds can be made with different materials. If you want your hotel rooms to have complete light blockage when the second layer is closed, order them with blackout fabric. The option is always there.


One of the most compelling reasons why you should invest in these functional and beautiful blinds is that they’re affordable. You can make more money with them as well.

The fact is, a hotel room’s appearance is a large part of what determines the price for staying in it. Plus, hotel windows are the first glimpse of a hotel room from the outside. If your hotel rooms use tacky, metal, slatted blinds, you’re not getting as much per room as you could be. Just by adding sheer vertical blinds, you are improving the entire aesthetic of the room. This improvement, depending on how drastic it is, could allow you to add anywhere from $5-$20 to the room’s nightly rental price. This adds up fast!

Shop Domir

While these are all compelling reasons to buy sheer vertical blinds for your hotel windows, you shouldn’t get them from just anywhere. While other companies may provide similar options, Domir is the manufacturer, which makes us the better choice. Why? Because when you buy from the manufacturer, you don’t have to deal with the higher prices from middlemen.

When a department store orders stock, they order it from us and then raise the price to cover labor for their employees. When you order Domir, you get the same products for a lower price. Plus, if you’re buying for a hotel, you can save big when buying from us. That’s because you can save up to 50% off on orders over $500. Give us a call if you have questions or need help placing your order. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sheer Vertical Blinds are Perfect for Home Interiors

Sheer Vertical Blinds are Perfect for Home Interiors

Looking for the best blinds for your home interior? Sheer vertical blinds are perfect for any home. Want to know why? Domir Blinds is about to let you in on what makes them so great.

They Fit In

The first great feature of sheer vertical blinds is that they fit in anywhere. Our sheer vertical blinds, called Allusion blinds, are offered in multiple colors, white and black, and look great in any setting. Whether your home is more cozy or more sleek, you can bet these blinds will enhance your aesthetic.

They’re Family Friendly

Allusion blinds are great for any home – even those with young children or pets. Because these blinds are made of fabric and aren’t held together by strings or thread, they’re not as likely to get broken by careless hands. Your little ones can shove them aside as quickly and carelessly as they like and they won’t damage anything or bend anything out of place.

Plus, because the Allusion blinds are soft, there’s no risk of children cutting themselves on metal blind slats. 

Privacy Flexibility

No matter who you are, you almost certainly want the ability to have privacy in your own home. Allusion blinds offer privacy easily. You can choose between two settings. Open, the blinds have a sheer layer, allowing in filtered sunlight to give your living space a glow. Closed, they block out sunlight and give you all the privacy you want.

Blackout Features

The closed setting that Allusion blinds offer isn’t just great for privacy. It also keeps out any unwanted sunlight. This is great for a number of reasons. Having the ability to keep out sunlight entirely is something many people need and don’t realize they do.

Working the night shift? Get the best sleep you can by controlling when the sun is allowed to enter your room. Don’t lose sleep quality to the rising sun. Have a baby that still takes naps during the day? Turn out the lights – even the natural ones – and keep your baby’s circadian rhythm strong and healthy. Want to watch a movie during the day without the sun ruining the mood? Blackout curtains are great for that too. Sheer vertical blinds allow you do all of this and more.

Elegant Appearance

In addition to all of these cool, functional features, Allusion blinds simply look great. They’re not overly complicated. They’re not so plain as to be unattractive. They sit in a nice middle ground, looking good no matter where you put them.

If you want something a little more complicated, you can even layer them with other fabrics. Put an additional curtain at each end of your Allusion blinds or wind decorative fabric to drape over the tops. No matter what your style, Allusion is a great start. Stick with simplicity or use Allusion blinds as a base for your creativity.

When you’re ready to commit to new blinds, Domir Blinds has everything you need. Whether that’s Allusion blinds or something else, we’re happy to help you get what’s right for your home.
