Nice shadesMaritzaI ended up exchanging them for an easier to install shades. But they are very nice and do not come with the needed screws for your specific type of walk. You’ll have to get them.5

Clean and simpleMELISSAFits perfectly in our Florida door window to block out the sun. Looks nice and easy to use so far. We’ve had it up for 2 months now.5
This product it isn’t good,HelenThis product it isn’t good, easy to install and the quality is ok. I just wish there aren’t more colour to choose from.4
Shade itself could be widerCourtney L.The material blocks out the light great, and the look of it is decent. However, the shade itself is quite a bit narrower than the roller, leaving large gaps at the sides for light to get through, so it doesn’t truly function as a “blackout” shade.3
Super easy to install andjohnSuper easy to install and looks great. I have already bought 5 and need a few more. Definitely recommended.5
upgrade from hoppvalsANDYReplaced Hoppvals for more opaque sun shade with Tretur. Happy with the results but the mounting and sizes were different so it did take remounting time and effort. Not a big deal but not just a swap out.4
Really niceJOHNI wanted to update a bedroom with roller shades and was looking online but hesitating as they cost between $800 and $1200. I was shopping in IKEA for lighting and saw these and bought what I needed for $200. They look beautiful and darken the room nicely. They have a nice texture5
Amazing and so easyJackie W.Absolutely love these blinds. I’ve tried many different options for my huge living room windows and these are the best. I pair them with an almost sheet curtain so I can decide between full black out or light filtering depending on what I’m going for in the moment. These allow us to use our movie projector during the day. Easiest install I’ve ever had with all the different types of window treatments I have used throughout our house. Considering buying more for the bedrooms next.5
Truly BlackoutSandraThese work great, block out the daylight and from what I can tell easy to install, we bought 35
It is ok, except fortatianaIt is ok, except for the plastic cover .4
Product looks good but theManuelProduct looks good but the wall bracket or latch does not hold as intended and usually comes undone when closing the blinds.3
Just what I needed!BrendaI purchased several of these shades for most of the common areas of my home. I wanted black out at my convenience and these are perfect. I simply raise them when a want light.5
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.
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.
