Your blinds or shades are raised and lowered using your fingertips. Cordless is considered the safest choice if you have pets or small children in your home. Dangling cords are a potential choking hazard.
These lift directions let you choose between lifting either the top, the bottom or both the top and bottom of the shade – giving you the best of all worlds. The shades are raised and lowered using your fingertips.
Add a touch of color and coordinate your blinds with your drapes, upholstered furniture or wall color. A thin strip of decorative fabric hides the ladder strings and helps to block light when the slats are closed.
It is important to accurately measure the depth of your window casing when installing your window treatment inside the window casing. The depth can be any flat surface area large enough to hold the mounting brackets. See our Measure tutorial for minimum depth requirements.
Energy Shield is a coating that maximizes window insulation to save on energy bills. Levolor exclusive technology provides additional insulation to help block air flow through the shade and reduces heating and cooling costs year round. It insulates while allowing natural, filtered light. Available on Designer Colors and Designer Textures in select colors.
There are two types of inside mount options: regular and flush. A window treatment installed using regular inside mount means the window treatment sits inside the window casing, but the headrail does not. A window treatment installed using the flush mount method means the entire window treatment, including the headrail, sits inside the window casing. This type of mount usually requires a very deep window casing. See our Measure tutorial to ensure that your window casing meets the minimum depth requirement.
LightMaster enhances privacy and room darkening by eliminating rout holes. A no rout hole design creates maximum light control for increased room darkening and increases privacy by preventing outside see through. Available in Premium Real Wood, NuWood Composite and Visions Faux Wood Blinds. LightMaster not available on 1″ slat size.
Moulding is the decorative wood surrounding your window frame. Moulding should be considered when measuring your windows. Do you want to show off or cover up your window moulding? Choose inside mount if you would like to show off the moulding.

There are two types of inside mount options: regular and flush. A window treatment installed using regular inside mount means the window treatment sits inside the window casing, but the headrail does not.

Flush mount usually requires a very deep window casing. See our Measure tutorial to ensure that your window casing meets the minimum depth requirement.
When you select outside mount, the window treatment will be installed above the window opening and mounted to the wall or moulding.
This retractable cord stays the same length as you raise or lower your shades. Instead of a traditional cord, the retractable cord uses special lift tapes that wind and unwind as the shade is raised and lowered.
Sheer shadings are available both as horizontal and vertical shadings. Sheer pieces of fabric are connected in the middle to create “slats.” When open, sheer shadings diffuse light. When closed, sheer shadings partially block the light.
Select spacer blocks if you plan to install the headrail above the window molding. Spacers are used with outside mounts only. They add an extra 1/2″ of depth to the headrail for additional room between the mounting surface and the blind.
Experience the best of both worlds with a top-down/bottom-up lift control. The top of the shade can be lowered to allow for sunlight, but still maintain your privacy. The bottom of the shade can be raised like a traditional shade.
