Levolor is a company that's been around for a long time (over 100 years) and has built up a good reputation selling quality blinds and shades.

Levolor also offers shades in all the usual options you'll have come to expect from other manufacturers:
Levolor Real Wood Blinds
Levolor creates blinds made from premium real wood. They're available in an impressive range of finishes that will help bring an element of natural beauty and warmth to your home. They're also available in their LightMaster option, which allows for extra privacy and light control, as this setup eliminates all visible cord holes.
Levlor Faux Wood
Made from durable material, Levolor’s faux wooden blinds offer excellent value. They provide the attractive style features of wood, but at a lower cost. Because of the material that they're made with, they're a good choice for areas of high humidity, such as the bathroom and kitchen area. Essentially, if you're after the look of wood for your blinds, but have a smaller budget, faux wood blinds are perfect.
If you compare the real wood and faux wood pictures in this image and the revious image you will see that you can hardly ntoice any difference, yet the Faux Wood option is much cheaper.
Levolor Vertical Blinds
An excellent choice for large windows or patio doors. They come in an S-shaped vinyl option that will allow for increased light control and privacy due to their tighter closure. You could opt for a softer style, having blinds that are sheer styled if you prefer.
Levolor Aluminum Mini Blinds
Another option for good light control, these mini blinds can be bought in a wide variety of colours and finishes. They're a practical and economical option that are extremely durable. Another plus point is how easy to clean and maintain they are. Levolor offers these with their LightMaster option as well as SheerView, which filters out light and helps reduce glare.
Levolor Woven Shades
These shade types will offer a warm and comfortable atmosphere to wherever they're installed. Created with premium-textured fabrics and woven organic materials that include jule, bamboo and grass, this shade style will help bring natural outside beauty, inside!
Levolor Cellular Shade
Many people enjoy these shades that are made up of stacked rows of honeycomb-shaped cells. These cells create air pockets inside the inner and outer fabric panels, making for excellent insulators. Ultimately, they keep either heated or cooled air inside your home and prevent either heated or cold air from leaking out of your window panes and into your room.
On top of regular cellular shades, there's also double cellular shades, which have two layers of air pockets back-to-back, meaning increased insulation against drafts. This will, of course, lead to saving money on energy costs because you won’t have to be turning on your heating/fans as much. Plus you can leave your lights off more often too, inviting in natural light instead, as these shades will help with light regulation too. Because of their construction, you can have the shade placed so it blocks out the sun if need be, but still allow some neutral light to find its way in.
If you're concerned about privacy, these also have some relevant benefits. Top-down/bottom-up cellular shades offer a decent amount of privacy without having to cover the whole of the window.
Cellular shades are also effective from a stylistic point of view, offering something that isn’t made up of drastic lines as many other designs are, and they're a modern-looking option less likely to date a home!
Levolor Blackout Shade
Not only will these do a great job keeping the light out, but they will also help with energy efficiency, offering a great way to manage light and temperature, helping you to be a bit more green and save on your energy costs at the same time.
Levolor Roman Shade
An excellent choice if you're after something luxurious and very decorative. Roman shades help to create a tailored and sophisticated look to a room, with modern, flat designs. They come in many different attractive fabrics, textures and colours. Roman shades can showcase a perfect balance of privacy and light control and can be purchased in light-filtering/room-darkening and top-down/bottom-up options.
Levolor Sheer Shade
Here is a way of having the stylish design of a shade with the light-control features of a blind. You can select from 72 fabrics from 8 different collections for a shade that offers great light filtering or room darkening. For added convenience, they're available with a motorised option, and all it takes is a quick click for full light control.
Levolor Banded Shades
Thanks to their alternating bands of sheer and solid fabrics, with this shade you can choose to have them open, closed or in between – a great practical feature that also offers a unique style point. These are also available with a motorised option too.
Levolor Roller Shades
A very versatile design that fits any style of home, available in a wide choice of fabrics in more than 100 different colours and textures. You can also choose from multiple light-control fabrics that include no liner, room lighting or darkening and blackout. Also available in a motorised version.
Levolor Solar Shades
Made with solar fabrics, which means they provide UV protection as well as blocking out heat and glare – these shades won’t obstruct the view. You could select a lighter solar fabric that reflects increased amounts of heat and light, but gives a slightly lessened view during the daytime, or you could go for darker solar fabrics that absorb heat, allowing for greater viewing during the day.
These solar fabrics range from white to black and have an openness rating of 1, 3, 5 or 10%, which relates to the percentage of UV rays that pass through the fabric. You can also control these with a handy motorised version.
Levolor Blinds and Shades Quality
Understandably, if you're looking into Levolor blinds and shades, you'll be wondering if there's an assurance of quality. Reassurance should come in the fact that Levolor is one of the oldest blinds and shades companies; they've built up a great reputation, serving thousands of satisfied customers. It's pretty hard to find another blinds company that holds such a similarly prestigious reputation. What’s more, Levolor offers a limited lifetime warranty on their products, as long as the item was installed correctly.
