Ratings and reviews

Good ValueJulie-AnneThese hang well and look good, though I am still waiting for the creases to fall out. Not very thick but still effective as a black-out. Deducted a star as they do not draw back easily on the pole, they catch, and I'm afraid someone may pull the whole rail down trying.4
Waste of money!AshleyIt's like a plastic shower curtain! Don't waste your money, time, or gas going to purchase these if it's not for your bathroom lol 1
Real blackout VivianaIt worked perfectly. Good material.5
Not that colourDavinaPurchased the curtains based on colour and black out feature. They are much darker than they appear to be. I am used to black out curtains being fairly thick and heavy. These are light a the back side is black. They make noise when you move them. They are long and wide for the money, so that is a plus.3
CurtainsDianeLovely colour and a good weight to them5
Bengta curtainsSharonThey are as stated, blackout. Wish it was white and not black colour on street side. Quite light in weight but they do the job.5
Bad qualityAdnanBad quality1
Just what we neededNicoleVery light weight so you wouldn't think they block out light as well as they do. They hang well, great length for our patio door. Really pleased with our purchase.5
It is too long forEnidIt is too long for my basement and the material make it hard to cut it but we had figure it out with imagination. What we needed was a blackout and that's completely covered.5
Looks great in my room…ColeenLooks great in my room… blocks out light well5
Feels more like shower curtains with garbage bag in the backKennethThin, light, has a lot of crease from packaging. Not stylish but very functional. They look and feel more like shower curtains than room curtains. Blackout is real but the backside is black so it looks very odd from the outside. We are used to Majgull line so this was a disappointment.2
You get what you pay forBrianMinimum quality at a low price. These blackout curtains are less than half the cost of other ikea curtains and it shows. But that’s OK because I know you get what you pay for. But there are flaws in the product that are unexpected. Tiny holes in the material that lets in pin hole lights. And the advertised dimensions are incorrect. It isnot as wide as stated in the description. That was a pain.2

Almost great!MonikaI took these out of the package and my first thought was…shower curtains. They feel like shower curtains. However, this is about all that’s wrong with them. They indeed block out the light brilliantly and while they are giving me serious polyester vibes, if they help me not wake up at or before 6am, I care not.4
Massive and they really block the lightJessicaWe're using these as room dividers. Blocks the light better than I expected. Light is on, but none is showing through the curtain. And it is Huge. Over 2M squared. Highly recommend.5
Light but plentyLiranI needed a quick solution to block sunlight from a window and a small balcony door. I cut this one curtain into two, and hanging them was easy because the material is so light. After two months now they have hardly collected any dust.5
Great product!BotagozExactly what I expected.5
Great productGeorgeteI am very satisfied and definitely recommend it.5
Well designed. Light weight, recycledAndreaWell designed. Light weight, recycled material which blocks heat and light extremely well and looks good.5

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organizations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is recycled polyester?

We want to have a positive impact on the planet. One way is to make products from recycled polyester. When we do, PET bottles and other sources of polyester get a new life in textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. When using them, you get to enjoy exactly the same quality and function as with virgin polyester products. And naturally, they’re just as clean and safe in every way. And perhaps the very best part – you contribute to saving on new raw materials too.

Function solution

The black-out fabric effectively blocks out all light. Perfect for people who are sensitive to light during sleep, anytime of the day. It prevents glare on TV’s and digital screens. It offers complete privacy at all hours since people outside cannot see in, even when the room is lit.
