Worked for a whileVerified ReviewerWhilst they worked fine for some months, it didn’t take too long before they started to fail and get stuck at a certain length over and over again. I had to manually unpair/pair them each time going through the painful pairing process whilst up on a ladder; after the 3rd or 4th time within a week I asked for a refund and IKEA didn’t even question it.1
Great Smart BlindVerified ReviewerFantastic product that looks great and easy to install.5
Fantastic smart blindsVerified ReviewerThese are awesome blinds. We now have for sets in the house, with possible plans for more. They fit really easily, hook up quickly and integrate easily with our existing smart home system, Home Assistant, so we can voice control them too. What more could you want?5
Great quality but offers no privacyVerified ReviewerThe blinds are well made and simple to install. I added mine to my Smart Home set up easily. My only gripe is that they are see through and, therefore, not suitable for most rooms. If they were opaque they would be perfect.3
Electric roller blindVerified ReviewerEasy to install and use. However it would be nice if there was an app to control the aperture and opening times of the blind(s)4
Almost goodVerified ReviewerThis electric blind does work as expected and the quality is good. Aesthecially could be more finished product however as there is no cover cap at the top to hide the rolling mechanism. I would also prefer the frame to be in white metal or chrome as looks more domestic. My biggest dissapointment about the blind is the lenght. It's just way too short. As design suggests, it is made for modern home, but the length of 195cm is not suitable for many modern windows - it should be at least 240-250cm. I bought only one blind to try for now, but will wait for an updated lenght before buying more. Thank You!3
Electric rollersVerified ReviewerEasy to fit works well pity there are no 90cm wide5
Shades of brillianceVerified ReviewerThe electric blinds are brilliant easy to put up and pair Shame you don’t do 90cm width5
Excellent Smart Blinds - With NigglesVerified ReviewerI have now installed the IKEA Smart Blind range in two rooms in my home. The blinds themselves are good quality & they are very easy to hang. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a motorised or smart blind solution. However, the bit that lets the product down is the new blind onboarding process in the app or using the open/close remote or signal repeater. This is just not very initiative, and can take a number of tries. If you do struggle, please be assured that the product isn't faulty, you just need to reset and retry and once all connected everything will work perfectly. As no Echo or HomeKit integration yet, you also cannot have the blinds go up and down at sunset, but the timer feature within the Home Smart app (while uninitiative) does work reliably once understood. Will be buying more!4
Kadrilj Smart BlindsVerified ReviewerGreat product, great build quality and aesthetic. Straight forward to install and to connect to hub. Only issue is that it won't connect to Alexa although that is expected soon5
Great affordable smart blindsVerified Reviewer+ Very affordable smart blinds compared to many others + Works as expected, can set a max size to prevent the blinds from overextending. + Google assistant compatible + Very simple to install the blind itself + Nice modern look - No sunrise/sunset timer, only a simple timer, logically makes the most sense especially when in the UK the sunset can vary from 4-10pm. - Limited range of blind sizes - You can have any colour, so long as it's grey - Bit complex to pair all the smart tech together4
Great product, appalingly bad instructionsVerified ReviewerGreat product, appalingly bad instructions: the product works excellently with teh app, once you 've worked it all out. the included paper instructions were absolsutly garbage, out of date, and skipped some very important set up points. When you download the ikea home APP, it works you through set up seamlessly. Throw away (OK recycle) the Grabage instructions, and then all is well.4
Electric BlindsVerified ReviewerIf possible a way to fix max opening, my windows are 175cm drop would be a great feature. Also more colour options, I will be installing these in all bedrooms. Quiet operation and look good too, blackout works too.4
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.
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 organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
