Inaccurate measurementsVictoriaThe description says the curtain is 23" wide but it is actually 21"-- the 23" is including the posts at the end. I am going to have to return. I am really disappointed.
Works really well!XudongI actually installed this to my patio door as a curtain and it works so well! Great length and the width fits perfectly.
Beware, this doesn't include mounting screws for the bracket.SagarI was all ready to install these blinds, and after contacting Ikea, got to know that the mounting screws for the bracket are not included.
Eazy PeazyPeterThe easiest blinds I have ever installed.
DissapointingElizabthDoes not install well on clam shell type window casing trim, a flat casing is better. I bought 5 and one will not stay closed, it rides up immediately :(
GoodAna C.Useful, keeps the heat away.
UsefullAna C.Should have more size options.
OkNeilIt was easy to install and the wand mechanism worked easily to raise and lower the shade stopping wherever height you wanted.
Nice shade but hard to cut to sizeJuliePurchased this for mounting inside the frame of a window which required it to be cut to fit. The instructions are misleading on the cutting; you need to SUBTRACT 1-15/16" from the measurement of the window frame (it shows to add that amount). I verified this with a phone call to Ikea. It requires very precise cutting. Once done correctly it works well though.
Friday shadeKurtLittle difficult to operate
Great blinds for the sunroomJeffreyGot four of these blinds for my sunroom. Easy to install and use. Only wish there were more color options.
Don’t bother…ErikaLoved the look of the shades but they are impractical and impossible. First, the width measurement is for the roller, not the shade. The roller was very difficult to cut, and regardless of what was used to cut the shade, the material looks jagged. I tried a blade, scissors, it didn’t matter. Lastly, I bought the 27” shade for a 26” window while the actual shade is 25”, leaving me with a gap for light defeating the blackout feature. I am hopeful the imperfections will be less obvious behind curtains but will likely need to replace the shades. Disappointing that it wasn’t an easy install and subpar quality.
Horrible designJulieThis shade is horribly designed. The rod is awkward, ugly and loud! It makes no sense. Don’t order this, you will be so disappointed.
Feidans Window ShadeMonikaThis product was economical, AND, easy to install.
Wrong measurements. Smaller than the window it is supposed to cover. One even has a hole in the blindBunmiProduct will be the first thing I am ever returning to Ikea store.
Awesome window shade!RussAbsolutely love this shade. It was relatively inexpensive, and easy to install and operate. I will definitely try and use this type of shade whenever I need one in the future.
Inside mount dilemmaSonyaI wish someone would design a roller shade that provides more coverage with inside mount. You have to cut so much off for the shade to roll properly that it almost defeats the purpose of having a blackout shade. Other than that, great shade.
easy to install and operateBeatefull control of how far and it will stay where u want it
Fridan's are greatSandyThey are customizable because nothing standard fits my 1921 house. They have been up for 5 days and it is just beginning to get hot -- no curling or rolling yet -- hope never. Where I spent my $$$ was the contractor for the customization but she was OCD and the results are awesome.
Simple nice looking shadeAntoinetteI bought this shade to block the door to my kitchen when I fry shishito peppers. My very sensitive and loud smoke detector in the hallway would go off whenever I fried the peppers on my stove top. The shade is simple and nice looking and solves the problem. I found the installation directions confusing but there are many YouTube videos that show you just how to do it.
