Almost perfectCHRISTINE R.I 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.
Very goodLaura R.Very good
Blocks the sun really wellShirley D.Love this product. It blocks the sun and easy and quick to install. Amazing!
Don't think just buy!Courtney R.Easy to install and get the job done.
Poor quality adhesive on black-out blindsEILEEN F.The 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.
Absolutely loveMARTHA O.Bought a few for our kids room and they work wonders. The bottom attachment can be tricky with a short windowsill but still doable.
best last minute sunblockerTHERESA M.these are awesome and they are so easy to put up!
great shadesTHERESA M.these do completely black out the hot sun on the west side of the house!
To weakAura S.Would have like it better if it was made of a stronger material
Perfect Summer SolutionReba S.We bought these for western facing windows. They block the sun and heat so well, we were amazed by how much cooler the rooms were.
Not expensive and truly a quick fix to summer heat problems. We don’t have AC.
This was our second purchase since one room worked out so well we decided to spend a couple of dollars to make our afternoon’s better.
And it worked. Highly recommend.
Not long enoughSVETLANA C.These blinds did not cover the 66-inch long window despite the indicated length of over 76 inches.
Great productCindy C.Love it!
Great blindsMARY T.We have purchased these before to make a DYI window covering for our half round windows & saved lots of money
Love love love themSuzan L.I have four of them, 2 in kitchen and 2 in bedroom. My apartment windows have installed blinds that are inside the frame leaving a gap on the sides. I can see outside, so people that walk by can obviously see in. I didn't want curtains in the kitchen, so I attached these to the top of the blind unit and problem solved. Plus, my kitchen stays nice and cool in the summer. The bedroom is even more comfortable for sleeping and staying cool with my black out curtains. Buy extras!
Stock up peopleSuzan L.I bought the white and gray for my new place. I love them, especially for the money. The white is perfect for light diffusing and still gives privacy. I have floor to almost ceiling french windows and placed the shades across 3/4 up so that I have privacy yet still can see the outside. I do recommend not moving them a lot due to the fact that they are installed with adhesive. I live in Minnesota and the cold didn't affect the adhesive at all.
Functional and affordable blinds.AshleyB.Functional and affordable blinds.
Love!Laura H.These are great, have used them several times. Really hope IKEA isn't discounting them!!
Worth the buyMARLA B.I love these. I use them as a room divider for my office. It works perfectly with Ikea's clothes rack. So versatile. I came back online to purchase more both in white and black. Unfortunately, they are out of stock. Hoping the item will comes back. : (
As promisedHelenaEasy to install and nice looking.
Does the JobConnie J.I have had these before: they look good and help with the heating bill.
I use them for the lower half of the window miniblinds to help keep heat below directly below the window from escaping.
I have also use them to entend the fulllength if needed for for privacy.
The filtered light is good for my furniture, and the overall effect is very pleasant.
I cut the Schottis to width of the window with a strong box cutter to get an even cut. I use the clips for length unless heavy, then I use scissors to remove some of the weight and bulk held by the clips.
I am very satisfied with this product.
I purchased, again, for the move to a new home.
