StrongJENNIFERKeeps the curtain track on well. The cats pulled it down where we did not have these on a section. The ones that were there were strong5
IKEA hack: green screenGERIThis system works beautifully! Inexpensive but quality. We hung 2 “rods” on the ceiling to create a green screen in my office behind my chair. Easy to install, works effortlessly, curtain moves smoothly in the system. I used 2 $10 blackout curtains to enclose my “office” and I think it is the perfect solution.5
Breaks easilySHELLYBreaks easily1
Looks Great!Anonymous reviewerA lot smaller then I thought it would be. Used this to install 11'-20' runs of the Vidga triple in our living room and bedrooms with floor to ceiling window. Don't know what those other reviewers problems were, unless you don't follow the instructions can't see how this can mess up. Holds strong.5
Does its job welltmankadI just put up 3 tracks with 4 of these brackets (two joints + two end brackets), and its sturdiness really surprised me! The bracket that screws into a wall/ceiling are metal, the latch is plastic. Using the Vidga planner is the way to go - it collected all the disparate pieces that a curtain system needs, without my having to guess from individual item descriptions what they were for. The instructions are hard to decipher (tiny diagrams) but not impossible. I was able to buy the whole system, with curtains, for less than just the track cost at my local Big Box, and I'm happy with the look and function.5
Slips through the railbrtbrksmtdrsI have the same problem as the other review. The plastic tab is much too small and the rail does not stay on. If you flip the track the plastic tab secures the rail but the other side of the rail does not fit the recommended sliding clips. Garbage.1
Won"t hold railLashondaGI didn't have an option to use a wall mounted bracket for Triple curtain rail. The part is made entirely too small and slides right thru1
Warning! DO NOT BUY FOR TRIPLE TRACK!muddyfootSlips right out of the triple track rail. I have to McGyver something to make it work now.☹️ Waste of 6.00 and now at have to drive 40 minutes to the store to return it.1
This product has issues.ed1776Of 100 or so IKEA products I have purchased and assembled, the instructions for VIDGA ceiling brackets and track are the most difficult to interpret. Also the instructions should show that the track is best installed by 2 people. Also the tops of only certain types of curtain cover the track.3
NecessaryJmcoolsI do hope Ikea begins to sell all the items need for a project as one kit. I purchased paneled blinds and everything that is needed is sold separately! And they do not sell the screws! I was told to go to a big box store for screws!3
DisappointedKyara83Its difficult to install those. They turn when you try to close it and its just frustrating1
Used inside closet trim with sliding panelsAGG123I used these ceiling brackets with a triple rail on the inside of closet trim. Work great. Nice tight mount. I think a lot of reviewers are doing it wrong. The rails come with pieces that work with whatever mounting brackets you buy separately. You must use pieces from the rail kit for this bracket and the other brackets. They have a great VIDGA youtube video to show you how it's done correctly.5
GARBAGEdemocrapA few years back I had my whole house set up with the rail tracks, THEY where awesome... but you had to improve it... and totally messed up, this plastic system is garbage! The prior model was made from aluminum!!!1
Vidga worked for menadomomI've used this system to install curtains from the ceiling in multiple houses and curtains with great success. They glide beautifully. I've used this system with heavier curtains from other stores with success. Love them. Have recommended them to friends.5
Sub par mounting system with insufficient partscrk2The rail doesn't come with enough brackets to mount it to the ceiling (146956/146957) and you can't buy these separately so this product can get quite expensive (and wasteful) just so you can get the tiny pieces of plastic you need2
Simple Low Profile Design!canceo1999I love my new Vidga system. The ceiling brackets work great and my curtains glide so smoothly!5
I think the 1 star reviewers are doing it wrongbuckeye21These brackets work fine. You’re not supposed to use this with just the bare rail, you have to also use the longer plastic piece that comes in the rail’s hardware box too, the same one that you would use to attach to wall brackets or to add a curved or straight extension. You slide that piece down the rail channel, then you attach it to this ceiling bracket. Without it there would be too much room and the rail would fall pretty easily, which seems to be what these other reviewers are having issues with. There is a good youtube video of a guy installing these, just search for VIDGA ceiling bracket installation.4
Terrible. Does not work!DIYJenThe rail just seems to hang on this and does not connect to it tightly. As a result, if the rail is moved ever so slightly (tilted), it can just fall off the brackets. A horrible design! I have never seen something this dumb come from IKEA. We ended up just drilling holds through the triple rail and screwing it directly to our ceiling. We only plan to use two of the 3 rails, so this is working okay for us. I will return these brackets.1
Very poorly designed, which is unusual for IKEA.PolidoriI have assembled my fair share of IKEA stuff and have always been impressed with the amount of engineering that goes into their products. I expected the ceiling bracket to be another example of great engineering, but it's absolutely horrible. The track will easily come off the bracket and come crashing down if pushed to the front or back just a few degrees because the little plastic thingie on the bracket that sits in the track is just too small. I threw away the bracket, drilled holes through the track, and attached the track directly to the ceiling. Not sure what IKEA was thinking on this one, but don't waste your money on the VIDGA ceiling bracket.1

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.”
