BlindVerified ReviewerGreat. I'm happy with the product5
AmazingVerified ReviewerI wish I bought it sooner. Great for privacy, for summer sunshine and specially for people working nights. Really easy to put, it takes 2 minutes (I recommend cutting with a very sharp kitchen knife as I saw on you tube). I just wish I could buy the plastic supports, as I made 2 blinds from 1 for two small windows5
Perfect blindVerified ReviewerThis is just the perfect blind to cover kitchen back door glass, thanks IKEA5
Nice look, easy to install,Verified ReviewerNice look, easy to install, only thing I would comment on, would be that connections to hold up, they are flimsy and not much use tbh. But I don't require them, so perfect buy for me.5

window became dangerously hotVerified ReviewerI bought the dark grey blind to block the sun coming in through a southfacing window. The window cracked and had to be replaced, and when I moved the blind on a sunny day, I realised that the window glass behind the blind had become literally too hot to touch. Window glass is not designed to get that hot. I assume it was because of the very dark surface with no air movement between it and the glass or around the blind. I threw the blind away and got a screen with better ventilation that allows air to move normally around the window. I do not recommend this product.1
Blinds are easy to cutVerified ReviewerBlinds are easy to cut to size and fit and keep sunlight and heat out well. From the inside they look nice, from the outside they do look quite cheap as it is a gloss backing. Opening and closing them does lead to the material getting quite thin and tearing after about 6 months where the Velcro is applied. The clips supplied do not hold up the full width of the blind well and often fall down. However they are an affordable, using to remove without damage option that does the job. Even with the faults we have bought more for bedrooms etc to quickly and affordably darken the rooms.4
Easy to use but fittingVerified ReviewerEasy to use but fitting instructions are not clear5
Great value for money reallyVerified ReviewerGreat value for money really easy to cut to size and install.5
Great value for moneyVerified ReviewerGreat value for money5
DisappointingVerified ReviewerEasy to install and has a good lighting blockage indeed, but unfortunately didn't last more than 2 days in place, the tape doesn't stick properly and keeps falling down.3
Very handy quick fix blindsVerified ReviewerThese easy to hang blinds are such good value and they are attractive. You need ‘bull clips’ to get them to hang well…lve learnt this tip and you must be very gentle when moving them up and down as they can tear easily if you are rough. The plastic clips in the pack are almost useless…sorry ikea5

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 organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.


What is recycled polyester?

When we create products from recycled polyester, PET bottles and other sources of polyester get a new life in products like 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 using less new raw materials too.
