A snapshot of customer reviews from the IKEA website shows that the blinds have proved a huge hit with those who’ve already snapped them up:

    ‘I’m planning to have shutter blinds fitted in my recently installed bay window, but found out they have a very long lead time for delivery. Rather than having to live without curtains/blinds I decided to try the Schottis “temporary” blinds. They are superb. They were incredibly easy to cut to size with a Stanley knife & also to install.’

    ‘Bought as blinds for my kitchen door as door blinds can be expensive. Amazing product.’

    ‘Fab price! Easy to install. Look really nice’

    Good Evening. If you can see them-I’ve bought some temporary blinds from @ikeauk which were recommended by a friend. I’ve been looking for blinds to fit this space for a while now, we were also reluctant to drill into the plastic frame. So discovering the Schottis pleated blind is perfect for this window in our utility room. You can cut it to size and it sticks to the window frame. No drilling needed! I’m one very happy home owner x. #utilityroom #utilityroomdecor #temporaryblinds #ikea #schottisblind #tidyhouse #norfolkhome #prettypastels #interiordecor #home #homedecor #homeblogger #houseahome #interior #interiordecor #interior_and_living #interiordecordetails #homedecordetails #homeaccessories #yhlovemyhome #floralprint #cosyhome #cottagestyledecor #countrystyle #newinteriorsontheblock

    These bargain blinds – are unsurprisingly – out of stock in some IKEA branches so you’ll need to check store availability before you take down your ageing net curtains. But the good news is you should see a ‘preliminary restock’ date listed, which will give you an indication of when this product will be back in store.
