    Hi,

    As subject says, does anyone know where to buy blackout blinds for PJ screen use that is 2m+ apart from IKEA? I have just phoned IKEA and they don't have any TUPPLARS in stock for at least another 2 weeks! :eek:

    I can't wait that long ...:(

    Thanks

    just buy some blackout cloth and a blind kit from somewhere like dunelm mills, will cost you around 20 quid and will keep you going for quite a bit.

    Do they? I've just looked on their website and it doesn't give me any 2m blinds, largest is 1.6m... Does their website have a complete inventory or is it worth going there and having a look?

    Just checked B&Q and the widest they do is 6ft (183cm).

    Also just went to a fabric shop and asked for blackout material and he didn't understand and said "Do you you mean cloth?" and pointed at some black cloth!!

    I got my 1.8m from Homebase, I am sure they also had a 2.4m.

    I've been looking into this as well, and the biggest problem seems to be that once you get past 1.8m size, companies want to start charging daft money.

    Quality Blinds are about the best priced I've seen to date. They've quoted me £99 for a blackout roller blind at 2.5m x 1.5m
