Shoppers are loving Ikea’s £3.50 blinds and say they’re perfect for blocking out nosy neighbours – The Sun

LIVING on a busy street or in a house overlooked by other buildings can make you feel like you don't have an ounce of privacy in your own home.

But savvy shoppers have found a clever way to keep prying eyes out of their home thanks to an IKEA bargain buy – and it only costs £3.50.

The bargain buy in question is Ikea's Schottis blinds, which cost £3.50 for a 90cm x 190 cm set.

Though the price might be low, shoppers claim the quality is high and they are able to enjoy the benefits of natural light while shutting out nosy neighbours.

Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Coupoining and Bargains UK, one shopper proudly showed off the blinds after installing them in her dining room.

She gushed: "Seen a lot of people posting about the £3.50 blinds from IKEA! There amazing this cost me a total of £7! BARGAIN!"

She added: "They were just a cheep quick cover for the windows got some nosy neighbours."

Many other happy shoppers rushed to the thread to commend IKEA for the cut-price blinds.

One woman said: "I've got 1 in my bathroom and in my kitchen and they're still all good after a year."

Another gushed: "I've had mine up for two years and still looking amazing."

However, not all shoppers were satisfied. Some claimed to have used the £3.50 bargain blinds only to have found they 'lost their shape' or 'sagged' over time.

One woman explained: "I got mine from Wilko. Honestly don't know what people are raving about if you don't clip right at the ends they flap at the ends then the middle sags."

The disgruntled shopper wasn't the only one recommending Wilko's blinds – others were quick to commend the cut-price shop for their range of window dressings.

Shoppers also commended Wilko's blinds, which start at just £4 a set.
