Saved me tons of time and moneyJake454I had to put curtains up in our Mexico home and cover a span of 7meters (275 inches)! This is a very large span and we tried going with some local options at curtain stores in Mexico... That was a horrible experience. The quality was awful, the track would bend under the weight of the curtains, and the price was 5X the cost of Ikea's VIDGA setup. So while we were in the States we bought everything we needed to complete this job and I have to say it was a dream compared to what we had. The curtains can glide with ease in both directions, the rails have no problem holding the weight of the curtains, and the installation was SO MUCH easier. The video instructions made this job super simple (just make sure to FOLLOW the instructions). We have 6 brackets and 5- 55 rails all connected together and it works perfectly. If you have a very large space to cover, this is the best product I have found for the money to get it done. Highly recommend. Just a tip- Install this with at least a 2nd person assisting you. I don't think I could have done it without my wife handing me tools and lining the rails up while I leveled and marked.5
Works well, but tough to cut to fit in the space.Dressy BessyWe love the sleek lines and the simplicity of the unit.4
Another good Ikea productChrisF225I bought this for my new home to install across a 72 patio door. I do not like vertical blinds and the door gets the sun here in Florida. The whole product system is well designed and engineered. The woolly, child like paper instructions were less good. Ikea you can do better! Whether I have gone OTT on my layout is still being considered. The patio door width was 72 so I used double tracks to give me 110. I then used 1 x triple track to hold 4 panels (2 either end), and 2 single tracks for Sheers and then lastly black out curtains. The larger brackets handle all that lot with ease. I don't know of anywhere else you could get the same system for that solution at that price.4
DreamAngnjcSI have a hard to reach window that I like to open the curtains on but it was always a pain. This track makes it so simple and clean it is like a dream come true.5
Easy install with a couple of tricksrojovialEasy to do alone, and the gliders move smoothly across the join between the two tracks. I found the system fairly straight forward to install, with a couple of key “learning experiences”. Notes on the WALL BRACKET INSTALLATION: When you’re installing the brackets, don’t tighten the screws all the way. When the brackets are fully screwed down, you can get one end of the rail into one bracket but then the other end of the track won’t go in. If you leave the screws a little loose and the brackets still have some wiggle room, you can get both end of the track in and clamped down, and *then* you can tighten the wall brackets down. The other thing I learned the hard way is that if one end of your rail will be within about 2 inches of a wall, put the end stopper on before you install the rail into the brackets!5
Answer to my needsPestieMaking new curtains for my RV we realized conventional curtain rods and mounts would not work because there are no studs in the wall of most RV's. This track rails with the glider hooks and clips were the perfect answer. We mounted the rails using heavy duty double stick tape. The curtains I made aren't real heavy weight but they are from drapery fabric and are lined. The rails have not moved since installation and we've traveled many miles with the trailer and now opening and closing the curtains is not an issue. They slide back and forth with ease. I'd recommend this rail and the glider hooks to anyone in need of a new curtain mounting system.5
Easy to install and usePhysics TeacherI have used these rails in two classroom installations on windows up to 153” wide. They are easy to install, and the curtains move smoothly across them. Even though I am an amateur, the rails are easily aligned so that the curtains do not get stuck as they move from the end of one rail to the beginning of the next one.5
Ceiling mount multiplekrisindyIt works ok - but I used 3 single rails in a row. Tricky getting them to align. I think I might have done it wrong (think it should have been a single shared ceiling mount between the 2 rails to ensure proper alignment. But it's working mostly smooth with 2 mounts per rail.4
Love the LookpaigenolI have been very happy with this product. It looks like I spent more on it, than I did.5
It FunctionsohmygodbeckayI needed 4 tracks, so I purchased two single tracks to go with my triple tracks. I had to buy two and cut them to fit the width of the doorwall. As I said in a review of the triple track, these are easy to cut with a hacksaw, clamp and miter box. The plastic connector pieces are not high quality and broke on my triple rail after I had connected it to wall brackets.3
KVARTAL series was so much betterPeterOMy large bay window already has a ceiling mounted rail with 2 corner pieces using the KVARTAL system. I had to buy the VIDGA system for another window since KVARTAL has been discontinued. The new system is terrible. The pieces don't stay together properly. Only two connectors are provided per length and you can not purchase them separately. So you can only have one fixture at each end of a single 55 rail. I'd prefer to have another in the middle for added strength. The old system was unpainted and I don't notice the joints. They are much more visible with this white finish.1
Great curtain track!!!LairdATLI have an older/discontinued track system from Ikea which works OK. This one, however, is fantastic! I wanted to hang heavy quilts I made to use as curtains and these are perfect. I love that you can make the track as long as you want; attaching to them to the bracket is a little tricky but once you’re done they are very sturdy.5
Ceiling mount curtain rodRed RiderThe package did not contain a necessary part that would allow for additional ceiling supports to be added. The ceiling fixtures are available in the store, but they do no good without the part that slips inside the rod for connection. We were directed to customer service and the woman looked up the part number and had the missing parts shipped to our house from Sweden. In the end, all came out all right, but Ikea should offer the ability to obtain these parts without that hassle.4
Sleek, easy to installPamMplsI bought this for my bay window 3 weeks ago. It is exactly what I wanted, but the corner pieces didn't work for the bay window angle. I modified it. It's not a slick as it would have been in its original state, but it works for my needs. I do love how it glides so smoothly and the price was definitely right.4
Very hard to installbamckinI bought four lengths of VIGDA triple track and ceiling mounts for a 4.6m wide window. I needed a strong track as I wanted to hang 3m high blockout curtains on one side and sheers on the other leaving the centre one free. I am quite experienced with assembling IKEA products and I didn't expect a curtain track to give me any problems but this one had me tearing my hair out. The clipping mechanisms are overly complicated and hard to access. There is not enough room between the track and the ceiling to easily open or close the locking levers. It's also really difficult to align sections using the method they suggest, and if it's uneven the sliders get stuck going over the join. It's definitely a two-person job. In the end, after four hours of balancing on a ladder with curtain track falling constantly on my head, I decided to ditch the clips and I just screwed the track straight into the ceiling thru the centre track with 5 screws per section. I actually don't think their method would hold the weight of big heavy curtains anyway. It's a good looking track but functionality is more important so hopefully the curtains work how they are supposed to and don't fall down.1
GreadtUriaI love ikea and the products5
Vidga ceiling mountBriannaTerrible design. The brackets are too weak to hold the curtain and track up. You touch the curtain and the whole thing falls down. Don’t buy! Waste of money1
looks great, works for my needsWonderWoman258bought this to hide wall shelving in a living room/office combo in a small house - did a 13 foot ceiling mount install bought the add'l parts needed - ceiling brackets as well as the glider with hooks. really wasn't complicated. hardest part was figuring out where to put the holes in the ceiling.5
Flimsy, cheap, cannot join two tracks togetherTypoThe plastic piece that allows you to put the rail on one of the wall brackets does not provide a firm enough grip. The rail will wiggle and slide when pulling curtains. The single rails are so thin, they feel like they would bend over time as well. Furthermore, when I purchased two of these rails, I only got one plastic pin and connector piece in each package, so I could not join two together as shown in the instructions (it would have taken at least three pins and connectors). So it was a waste of time trying to use these. Perhaps they work better mounted to the ceiling, but that is not an option where I live, and most of the curtains IKEA sells are not tall enough anyways.1
Couldn"t figure it outGriffinPCNeeded lots of extra parts to hand it from the ceiling and none of the instructions made any sense. Threw it away. Total rubbish.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.”
