Decided to replace existing window blinds with new ones - real wood. Have been shopping around; like Levelor because of some unique options offered. However pricewise, if I buy online from Levolor it's very expensive, whereas and Lowes are significantly cheaper for the same thing. Is there a difference in the product?

Have heard that some manufacturers make a cheaper product that looks the same for places like Home Depot & Lowes. Anyone know if this is so with Levolor?

I don't want to pay premium price if I don't have to, but don't want an inferior product either.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Dear CityGal,

Congratulations on your decision to replace your blinds with real wood blinds! They will make a huge impact on your decor.

The answer is there is no difference between the Levolor products sold through Levolor, and those sold on The only difference is the price. We are an authorized dealer. Make sure that wherever you buy, you know you’re buying from an authorized dealer like

I also suggest you look at the Deluxe Wood Blind (,8251), which has the same unique features available and same quality as Levolor real wood blinds at an even lower price. Plus, 96.4% of our customers never need to use the 100% Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee, but it's there if you need it.

Compare 2 Standard 36" X 60" windows: Deluxe Wood: $75

Levolor 2" Premium Wood: $114

You can email me directly, I'm happy to answer any questions you might have and send you some samples!

Best regards,

Esther Steinfeld

Hi CityGal,

I'm a general contractor and I ran across your post on the forum and thought I would take a moment to answer the question.

I've installed my fair share of window treatments in my career and I love the fact you are going with a trusted brand name like Levolor! I used to shop at Home Depot but started doing my ordering online in 2005, in order to save my clients money. Living is Washington, I work in the US and Canada so I do business online with Blindsgalore and their Canadian company Blindsgalore Canada. I appreciate their everyday low pricing vs. liquidating old products through "Sales" and their free shipping to my client's door steps.

Anyway, these are a few very popular wood blind options worth checking out: Wood Blinds. I hope this helps!

Kindest Regards,

-Nicole Slettengren

I have just installed a Bali cellular blind from Home Depot and it appears to be fine. I had to buy it because Levelor refused to honor their “LIFETIME” warranty. It seems that they define lifetime as over 10 years. I had Home Depot, where I bought them, call and then I called. They insisted that they had no responsibility to honor a lifetime warranty over 10 years old. I have a house full of these and they are all falling apart. I will never use Levelor again and would strongly recommend against them.
