IKEA motorized blinds vs Omnia Blinds

IKEA motorized blinds vs Omnia Blinds

The difference between Omnia Blinds and IKEA motorized blinds

Let us compare our motorized blinds vs IKEAs motorized blinds so that you can get further insights regarding what kind of manufacturer that best fits your needs. 

 

1. Pre-made vs made to measure motorized blinds

IKEA manufactures their motorized blinds in volume at pre-set sizes, which means that they are able to keep the manufacturing cost down. It also means that you are able to just pick them off the shelf in IKEAs stores. 

Getting pre-made motorized blinds means that you are probably not going to get the perfect fit within your window frame, called inside mount. If you mount the blinds outside the window frame, called outside mount, it will probably work better but it is not as sleek as the inside mount. 

If your window is larger than 140 cm you will unfortunately not be able to go with IKEAs motorized blinds.

 

IKEA motorized blinds sizes

  1. Width 60 cm x Height 195 cm
  2. Width 80 cm x Height 195 cm
  3. Width 100 cm x Height 195 cm
  4. Width 120 cm x Height 195 cm
  5. Width 140 cm x Height 195 cm

  2. Width 60 - 240 cm x 225 cm height, can be ordered by millimeter precision 
  3. Width 60 - 240 cm x 285 cm height, can be ordered by millimeter precision 

 

Made to measure, for a perfect fit

We manufacture our blinds made to measure, meaning that the customer is able to fit the motorized blind perfectly within the window frame. Made to measure blinds are more expensive as each and every one is hand made by professionals. It also means that there is a manufacturing process that takes a few weeks compared to the pre-made blinds. 

 

Getting the exact measurements, made to measure motorized blinds, is of course what you absolutely prefer as it will not only look beautiful in the window but it will also allow the blind to do what a blind does best - keep the light out without any glitch. But as previously mentioned it does come with the downside of waiting for the blinds to arrive, they are more expensive and you will not be able to return the product as it is custom made according to your preferences.
