Curtain easySergioVery complet5
Very hard to cutSTEPHANVery hard to cut3
Perfect.HOLLIEI had been looking for something that would blend in with my walls and not stand out. I mounted this as close to the ceiling as I could with the brackets and even put two side by side as my patio doors are quite large. It's smooth and looks seemless. I love it!5
A little more info to attach to hooksMar229I can see the curtain rod above the drapes when drapes are closed is there any way to adjust?4
Missing connector and they are not sold separatelyMissing connectorsThe rail come with 2 connects and 2 brackets, we ordered 2 rails and 1 corner piece. You will need 2 connectors to hold a rail and the corner piece can share the connector at the end of the rail but If you cut the rail into 2 and connect and connect part of it before the corner piece and the rest after the corner then you will need a total of 5 connectors and 5 brackets. We resided one of the rail with a saw but then we ended up missing 1 connector piece and 1 bracket. The product should come with 1 extra connector in case if people cut the rail into 2. We searched online and we can buy the bracket separately for 4$ but still we cannot find the connector anywhere else and we are kind of stuck missing 1 connector. The only way to fix this is to buy another rail, so that we will have 2 other brackets and connectors but it doesn't make sense.2
Works perfectlyBabbobearEasy install, surprisingly sturdy!!!5
Beware of plastic partsHotpotatoI love the look of this system, but am concerned about the durability of the plastic parts. The rod and hanging brackets are both metal, but the clip that attaches the rod to the bracket broke as I was hanging the curtains. Please IKEA, make this part more durable. I am using IKEA Vilborg curtains and worry the system might be too light duty to carry their weight, especially when pulling them open and closed.2
The easiest to install trach railYknipI have watched the video many times and i would say that it is true to its purpose. Once we get the hang of took us only 10 minutes or less to install the single track rail.5
Perfect system for curtains!!Downsizing2Easy to install (watch YouTube video), smooth transition when you’re installing several rails. PERFECT!!5
Vidga single track railSweet PeasBought this along with other Vidga pieces to hang our netting curtains to keep bugs away around our spa area. All who have seen it at our home have found it super.5
VIDGA Single track railcorner drapeThe straight track system was simple to put up after the video was viewed. The drapes slide well. If using it for a corner - you will need extra connectors - that you will have to order. Truly happy with the end result.4
simple and elegantoffice chaireasy to install and customize to different lengh.4
Smooth tracksMrsYoungWorks as promised. Looked easy enough to put up. Husband did it. The tracks runs smoothly.5
VIDGA Single track railRadhaThe rail is very good, but the hardware that comes with the rails are not enough. Because more clips are needed when we have several rails connected, to keep them straight. I think if we had a few boxes of the hardware available separately, it would be very helpful. I can't recommend the product if more than one rail is to be installed.2
Neat appearanceCasurrinaI have a a very big window in a modern house. It fits perfectly well not showing any hooks4

Let’s get lost in layers

With layer upon layer of different types of curtains, you can turn your window into a cozy and constantly changing scene. It’s beauty that also serves practical functions - the curtains can be drawn to and from as necessary to adjust the light, sound, temperature and privacy. Let these solutions guide you towards getting the weekday escapes you want.

Product development engineer Martin Bo Zhang has worked with curtain rails for more than a decade. He uses lots of gestures and body movements when he talks. Martin lifts both arms over his head like a ballerina. He's showing how hard it can be to keep a curtain rail in place while assembling it at the same time."There are 30-50 small screws," Martin says. He brings his thumb and forefinger together, leaving space for a grain of rice. "This small." He keeps one arm up and reaches toward the floor with his other arm. "If a screw falls on the floor, you can't find it," he explains, "and good luck if you have a high pile rug." So how did Martin, designer David Wahl and a team of many at IKEA figure out how to improve curtain rails? First, they researched what customers and co-workers said about curtain rails that had been returned. They had workshops with lots of IKEA colleagues, too. Then they started looking at anything and everything but curtains.

A concept that clicked

Buckles, belts and sports equipment—that's where David and the team got some unexpected ideas for VIDGA curtain rails. "By looking at solutions from different fields of products, you can get inspired to find new ways of solving problems," he explains. That's how the team came up with the concept for VIDGA to click together using as few tools as possible. And there aren't any rice-sized screws to lose. "You still put it together yourself," Martin says, lifting an arm into the air like he's holding a curtain rail against a wall. "But you don't need to spend an hour and a half with your arm like this." So now you know how customers and clicks helped improve curtain rails. That just leaves the robots.

Bring in the robots

Where are the robots, exactly? About an hour north of the IKEA home base in a town called Åseda with a population of roughly 2,500. A supplier there won the worldwide bid to produce VIDGA curtain rails, built a new factory and hired more than two dozen new employees. "Going from talking about the small things to being in the factory, looking at the conveyors going around the robots continuously working, is a mind-blowing experience," Martin says.

The team was able to automate production with the robots because they designed every piece of VIDGA from scratch. In fact, since nothing like VIDGA exists on the market, we're applying for a global patent for the whole system—a rare step for IKEA. Will you need to call in a high-tech robot to assemble VIDGA curtain rails for you? Nope. You'll just need a simple allen key. Sometimes a better everyday life starts with a click.

Three layers of temperature

Did you know you could adjust the temperature with curtains and blinds? A honeycomb structure of the HOPPVALS blind creates a layer of insulation, keeping your room warmer during the colder season and cooler in the warmer months.

Gently down the corner

A layered curtain solution allows you to fine-tune light, sound, temperature and style in a personal way. And, the amount of privacy or openness you want, is always just around the corner.

Just relax in layers

We all need a place to revitalize at the end of a long day, before the next morning. With three layers of light filtering and mood setting curtains and blinds, you can adjust your bedroom window to whatever you need.

Night shift

Need to catch up on some sleep? Change your bedroom from daylight to complete darkness with an inner layer of block-out blinds. A thick curtain on top brings soothing coziness and dampens sounds around you.

Because, it’s just safer

We believe children are the most important people in the world. Therefore, we adapted our range of blinds and curtains to make your windows as safe as possible. We spent four years coming up with alternatives, and where we couldn’t, we simply removed the product from our range. So now all IKEA blinds are completely safe for your kids. Goodbye cords, hello peace of mind.

How to measure your windows for curtains

Part of the secret to creating really beautiful, easy layered solutions is making sure your window is properly measured. 1. The width of your window (a) This determines the width of your curtain rod or track rail. Add at least 5¾" on each side to allow the curtains to cover the window properly and open completely. 2. The length of your curtains (b) This determines the length of your curtains or panel curtains. Measure from the top of the window frame and stop where you want your curtains or panel curtains to end. As a rule of thumb, add 5¾" to the measurement. Mount the curtain rod or rack rail 5¾" above the window frame.

”When mounting curtain rails myself, I’ve often thought about how it could be made simpler so when I got the chance to create VIDGA curtain rail system, I knew what I wanted to do. The new system needed to look good, and be as easy to understand as to mount with just a few tools. And I am very pleased with the outcome! I’m sure you’ll like the end result, when all your curtains or panel curtains are in place.”
