Easy to installjjhuth archUsed these along with the clips from the ring set of assembly. Worked out great. Didn't need the little white things though, wish I could have bought the glider with the clips.5
Worked well with Rosallil CurtainsYushWe bought lightweight Rosallil curtains to separate our studio apartment to create a bedroom. We used a wire for railing and these gliders were perfect as they were light and provided for smooth movement of the curtains.5

jackie2389The glider does not fit perfectly within the rail, so they can be pushed sideways and get stuck. Super annoying. In the previous kvartal version the rail tapered so the glider wouldn't get stuck.1
Answer to my needsPestieWhile making new curtains for my RV, we realized we needed a special type of mounting system because RV's in general have no wall supports to screwing to the wall was not an option. The rails and these gliders with hooks were the answer. The glider pieces have made the curtains hang beautifully and they slide back and forth with ease. These are a definite thing to keep in mind when conventional curtain mechanisms won't work. Thanks IKEA.5
SimplekrisindyWorks fin and easy to do. But going to buy more to get a cleaner pleated look at top when curtains open.5
Why from grate product downsize to the worstEmbiI have old version for over 10 years and is grate. This new version is just unusable. Connections are very bad. You can use it only if you don't need to connect with other peace (strait or corner). I was lucky enough because I kept extra connection parts from old version 10 years ago, otherwise I would have to return.I don't understand why IKEA discontinued something what was great and replaced it with something what can't work. If just connection parts would be replaced with different it could be good.1
Not A FannotquitemonroeBought these hooks for my first attempt at a track mounted system to cover my master bathroom entry way. Once you get the hang of how they snap together they aren't so bad. I personally don't think they're strong enough to support a lined curtain without using a full pack, plus this kind of mounting looks sloppy at the top. I'm planning to exchange for lighter weight curtains (which will pleat better) and will buy the metal drape pins to create a classier look.3

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.  Read More
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.

Designer thoughts

”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.”
