Ikea has started the irresistible winter sales by putting on offer an article with which it intends to compete with Leroy Merlin. These are opaque curtains which, in addition to not letting in any light, keep the heat in the room and keep out the cold from the outside. This irresistible product can be found at the Swedish multinational in any of its stores in Spain.
We say that makes competition, because the French company specializing in DIY, decoration and gardening, Leroy Merlin, just a few days ago, put on sale some opaque blinds, which protect from the cold and do not let light through, perfect if you do not have blinds at home. The products are very similar, but we will break down the differences below.
The opaque blind from Leroy Merlin
The opaque blinds of Leroy Merlin mentioned above, are the Moon model, and are made of an opaque fabric thatdoes not let light into the rooms you want to protect. For this function, a great producer to place in bedrooms.
In turn, with its precise smooth finish is an article that also serves as a decorative element for the different rooms of the home, which will not go unnoticed and improve the aesthetics of each of them, giving a simple yet elegant touch. This model has several other advantages due to its opacity, since it allows you to preserve the privacy of your home, and at the same time contributes to energy saving, both in summer and winter months, as it does not let cold or heat pass through.
The price of this roller blind from Leroy Merlin is from 61.99 euros in the smaller sizes, increasing its price depending on its size. But Ikea now makes competition to the French store, putting on sale a very similar item, but as curtains and for a much lower price, something that becomes irresistible to the consumer.
Ikea blackout curtains
Ikea, which is a leader in the world of furniture sales does not want to lose this position in the sector, so it has put at a heart-stopping price the Leroy Merlin trend article with which it wants to compete.
Instead of a store, the Swedish company has brought out blackout curtains, from the BENGTA line, which, like those of the competition, completely prevent the entry of light, and will allow the consumer to rest without the inconvenience of being woken up by the brightness.
These curtains are made from recycled materials, using 40recycled 0.5LPET bottles. In this way, they have managed to transform the waste into beautiful curtains for the home, which not only prevent the entry of light, but also contribute to the environment. This is shown as a point in favor of Ikea’s curtains, since the consumer, nowadays, demands more and more products that help to take care of the planet.
As for the measurements, the Ikea curtain is has a width of 210 cm and a length of 300 cm, so it has large dimensions. However, it can be adjusted to any window by simply cutting it, without the need to sew a hem or finish it off, as its laminated fabric does not fray.
Regarding its design, it is smooth and of a nice light blue color, which combines perfectly in many rooms such as the living room, bedroom or office. In addition, it can be attached either with crochets or by placing the curtain directly on a rod, thanks to hidden loops at the top. Something that makes a great comfort to the curtains.
As for the price, it is undoubtedly its great advantage over the blinds of Leroy Merlin as Ikea has put on offer these blackout curtains BENGTA and we can find them for only 15 euros, a very economical and irresistible price for the consumer. That’s right, with these Ikea curtains we would be saving almost 47 euros, taking into account the price of the Leroy Merlin article.
