Levolor blinds (Often misspelled as Levelor Blinds) and shades have been a preferred window treatment option since the early 1900’s. Levolor has truly set the standard in design innovation, window fashion quality, and customer service over the years. Today Levolor is a division of well-known manufacturer Newell Rubbermaid.
Newell Rubbermaid Inc. is an S&P 500 company, marketing products globally in the consumer and commercial product arena with sales of approximately $5.9 billion as of 2011. Newell Rubbermaid Inc. has a strong portfolio of leading brands, including: Rubbermaid®, Sharpie®, Graco®, Calphalon®, Irwin®, Lenox®, Levolor®, Paper Mate®, Dymo®, Waterman®, Parker®, Goody®, Rubbermaid Commercial Products® and Aprica®. Levolor blinds head office is located in the sunny southern city of Atlanta, GA.
Levolor was founded in 1914, they remained strong through the great depression and through World War 2 becoming synonymous with the 1″ Mini Blind. The “Mini Blind” is one of the most recognized styles of blind in window fashions even today. Levolor has since widely expanded its product offerings to include a wide variety of Levolor aluminum mini blinds, Levolor vertical blinds and Levolor wood blinds; Levolor cellular shades, woven wood shades, and sheer vertical window treatments.
Levolor offers many interesting features with their blinds and shades including:
Light Filtering / Room Darkening
Blackout blinds and blackout shades, also referred to as room darkening shades and blinds, block about 99% of all incoming natural light. Light Filtering blinds and light filtering shades offer more privacy and insulating properties that make natural light softer but do not block it out completely. Levolor shades and blinds come in a huge array of materials and colors so you can find your perfect window fashion match.
Child Safe Cordless
While you should understand that there are no true “child proof blinds”, making safer choices in the operating style of your blinds can make your home safer and much less risky for small children. Cords and kids just don’t mix, and using retro-fit kits is like putting a Band-Aid on a giant gash. Your best option is cordless window treatments like Levolor cellular shades.
Top Down / Bottom Up
Levolor’s top down / bottom up window treatment option is ideal for a space where you need privacy but also want natural light. Levolor shades with this option give you more control over your window treatments by allowing you to operate them from the top down or the bottom up. Top-Down / Bottom-Up Shades are usually available on cellular shades, roman shades, pleated shades, and woven wood shades.
