Restaurants come with a variety of unique needs in design. From surfaces that are easy to clean to decor that matches the interior, there’s a lot to consider. But what about blinds? How do you decide what blinds are right for your restaurant? Let’s look at what you should factor into your choice.
Easy to Clean
The first thing you should keep in mind when choosing blinds for a restaurant is how easy they’ll be to clean. Too often, restaurants buy cheap, slatted blinds that collect dust and never get cleaned. Caked on dust looks gross and can cause respiratory difficulties in patrons.
Do yourself and your business a favor and invest in something easier to clean. Window screens are great for letting in sunlight while blocking UV and lending privacy. Shades will block out sunlight as well and are great for restaurants looking to provide the lighting from inside. Products like the Ninet or Magic Lite will be able to give you a range of sun exposure depending on what you need. All of these have a common trait: they’re easy to clean. Flat, outer layers are easy to wipe down and keep slats from collecting dust.
An important part of bringing back customers is by creating a good atmosphere. Any piece of interior decor or functionality can make or break your atmosphere. This makes it important to choose blinds that fit in attractively with the rest of the restaurant aesthetic. Domir has a number of blinds to choose from. At least one of them is bound to suit your aesthetic needs. To get started, check out our sleek window shades and our warm Ninet.
Functional in a Restaurant
Of course, we can’t forget the importance of functionality. Being able to adjust the blinds as needed is also important. This is especially true for restaurants that use the sun as a light source but want to keep the rising or setting sun from blinding customers. The Ninet and Magic Lite are fantastic for this. While window screens and shades either let in all the light or none of it, Magic lite can do both and everything in between. The Ninet has a warmer appearance, but can also accomplish a range of coverage levels.
An important part of buying any new thing for your restaurants is making sure it will last. After all, it’s no one’s dream to replace the blinds every year from wear and tear. Cheap, metal blinds are prone to getting beat up from patrons bumping them and bending them. Shades, screens, and high-quality, slatted alternatives like Magic Lite will last longer and look better. It’s an investment to buy quality blinds from Domir, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be overspending. Our prices are fair and affordable. And, because we’re the manufacturer, if you order directly from us on big orders, you can save up to half the cost!
