Good ShadesLeif O.I was skeptical of the stick, but it works well and doesn't show as much as I thought it would. If you don't have white walls it might stand out more. I like how it easily raises the shade and fully. The material is okay, a little better than an average roller shade. It was fairly easy to install, I needed to search out a video though. Definitely have a level and make sure the plastic holders are level in every way. The first one I put up wasn't and now it's rolling a bit crooked. Definitely check the details on the sizing, as the actual roller material is narrower than the size of the full shade with mechanism. I bought three more, for the price I felt it was a good value. This was also the first time I've been able to make an online purchase and have it work. I gave up a few years ago, I gave it one more try and it was very easy and they shipped the shades very quickly. Impressed with that!5
Incorrect sizing listed on packaging!Amy T.I read the packaging and looked at the illustrations carefully ... these blinds are NOT 48 inches across as stated, but 46”. A huge gap was left and obviously these will not work. Sad, they would look great if they were the correct size. The labeling needs to be changed to show total length, as well as length of the actual blinds being used to block the sun. Also, the few-word instructions are really terrible. And as another poster said, no screws are included. I now have drill holes in my wall because stupidly I trusted the packaging on the width of these shades... :angry:1
easy to install and effectiveGeoffreyeasy to install and effective for bedroom. innovative mechanism.5
Great blackouts. Affordable price.Maria P.It’s a win-win. You pay a reasonable price and you get a product that actually works. And you don’t have to wait for a custom made product. That was our only situation: we needed a 35 inches measurement for our window in order to achieve that hidden effect and avoid to put them outside the frame of our window.5

I like it so much!butVeronikaI like it so much!but it is not really black out!!!5
Love the look and easy useTakiyahWe placed them over the windows on our metal door. Even though the installation was easy, those instructions with no words could have made it easier! We didn't have any screws like we've had with other blinds we've purchased.5

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.1

Easy to install and operatePAULI like how the wand activates the blind. Much better than traditional pull down blinds.5
Excellent qualityJIHII love how easy it is to adjust the blind up and down. It is much better than original roller with plastic handle. I am planning to change all of my old one from IKEA with this new design :)5
JBJASONEasy to put up, works great! Wish the size was easier to customize as they are have a tiny gap on either side that allows light to enter the room. But I could have bought the larger ones and hacksaw to cut to the right size.4
Had to return as itPAULAHad to return as it didn’t work in our space1
A bit hard to hang, but worth it!JackieLOVE the look of this shade -- but I had to re-hang it to center the shade over the window... and that was not fun. Centering it was probably was a bit more challenging because I hung it close to the ceiling, rather than right above the window. (Hanging it that way actually does make a small room look larger!) Now that it's up, it looks fantastic, is easy to lower and raise, and darkens the room nicely. A bit more of an installation challenge than I'm accustomed to, but well worth the effort! One last tip -- when you purchase this shade, make sure you measure the width of the shade itself -- the measurement on the package is the width of the shade, plus the hanging hardware at the top.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.

In 2014, we got an invitation, along with other manufacturers of blinds, to meet with the Consumer Product Safety Commission – a governmental agency in the United States. They wanted to discuss how to prevent accidents with blinds that have accessible cords, and what possibilities there were to create something better. One of our Product Engineers, Bo Zhang, remembers it well. “We decided to immediately stop selling blinds with cords and only sell cordless ones.”

New solution but the same function

The decision meant some frustrated customers who wondered where the traditional blinds had gone. But it also meant that change was on the way. Bo and the team tried several different solutions until they came up with one that provided the same functionality as blinds with visible cords. “We realized we could keep the cord, but hide it,” he explains. The cord is inside a plastic rod that’s expandable and reinforced with strong glass fiber. When you pull it, you adjust the blind. “It’s safe, exact, and still at a low price,” says Bo proudly. The rod has not only been tested by our own lab, but also independent test labs. In addition, customers have checked the functionality. “By involving different people and organisations, we’ve made sure FRIDANS and the rod can meet the toughest demands – in every market,” says Bo. “The rod allows parents to create a safer environment for the youngest family members. When you live with children, that’s one important part of a better life at home,” he finishes.

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.
