ShadesMariaI love these. Not expensive, looks great and gives you the privacy needed5
Great instant solution for windowsAshleyFit perfectly in my bathroom windows. Issues with the shades sticking were easily fixed with thumb tacks. Would purchase again. Only reason its not a 5 star is the quality of the adhesive 4
Needed blackout blinds for basementLindaNeeded blackout blinds for basement windows. Fit perfectly. Stick great. Look great. Great price.5
Lasted four yearsAprilI recently purchased these for my daughter and grandson. I use them and in my master bedroom and I've had them for 4-yrs and I suspect they're gonna last longer. They totally block out any sun and are super easy to clean in both sides. I've tried other black out shades and honestly as far as quality for the price these are the best. Oh and there is no fading from the sun. My daughter loves them I purchased eight for her home and trust me we can afford others but these are just fine I only wish they. And in white.5
Easy to installVallorieThe shades are pretty nice. They were easy to install but time will tell how long the sticky will last.4
Schottis shadePamVery good. Bought in Black out and white. Easy to use and fit to window size. The clips are ingenious but instructions don't tell you to push the clip till the shade is completely through. 5
Did the job.DianeWe bought this to cover our RV door window and it was cheap and works well.4
Excellent for the priceGabrielI bought this to provide some shade in a foyer and they do their job just fine. My only desire is that they were a little bit sturdier so they will be easier to work with, but for the price they are amazing and look great. 4
Perfect for the price GabrielI got this to darken a room that gets way too much light in the morning during the winter. These are true blackout blinds and I'm impressed at how sturdy they are for their price and how easy it is to cut them in shape and stick them to the window casing. Sure, they could have more options or features, but these are cheap blinds, and for the price there's nothing better out there. 5
Great temporary solutionJjaraGreat temporary solution5
Easy to use for a quick simple solutionAshleyI bought the green ones they had before, now there's the dark gray. So I had to have them. Easy to put up and easy to take down. No real measuring needed. For some of my windows they needed to be cut. Even that was easy.5
Great Temporary BlindOliverThis temporary blind is a great gift for our new home. It looks pretty from outside and blocks the strong sunlight coming from the window. The quality feels sturdy and is very easy to install. It gives my family more time to shop the long term solution on the window blind. But if We want to just leave it as it is, I think no one will complain about it, either.5
Almost perfectChristineI have purchased SO many of these over the last like 8 years. The ones I bought now don't have very strong adhesive - - At least not like the old ones did. I still recommend these to everyone. I live in a hot climate and have multiple windows that get direct sunlight for a large portion of the day. These help not only block the light leaking through the normal blinds behind them, but they help keep the temp down in the room. As such, my AC bill dropped about $20/month using these. They've more than paid for themselves.4
Very goodLauraVery good5
Blocks the sun really wellShirleyLove this product. It blocks the sun and easy and quick to install. Amazing!5
Don't think just buy!CourtneyEasy to install and get the job done.5
Poor quality adhesive on black-out blindsEileenThe SCHOTTIS 2229 black-out blinds have poor quality adhesive that doesn’t hold! I made a 250 mile RT to bring several of these to a person who needed black-out window coverings asap ( yet is not allowed to mount any window coverings or rods requiring mounting holes). Surface was properly prepared. I’ve used the older version of the white blinds ( 2208) successfully previously. The adhesive strip does not seem to be the same quality as found in previous purchases. Ikea customer rep… please send me more adhesive for three sets of these blinds.1
Absolutely loveMarthaBought a few for our kids room and they work wonders. The bottom attachment can be tricky with a short windowsill but still doable.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 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, they 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.
