Great BracketFranciscoYou'll need these if you intend to install two rails. We installed a 3 channel rail on the back and a single at the end. It worked great. Very strong bracket.5

I love the Vidga System!JenniferI just happened to find the Vidga track system and fell in love! I installed it in my living room and have gotten many complements (I have both Ikea curtains and panel curtains). The only downside is that some pieces have been out of stock, so it’s taking a while to get all of my windows changed to the Vidga system.5
Beautiful and FunctionalGloriaThe blinds look fantastic. They roll easily in their track. Do wish they had a handle for moving them so they won't get finger stained. Having an installer was so necessary.5

Nice systemtraceeI had bought these in the past for my curtains and love the concept of how easy it is to add more rods. Nice way to make sure everything is even.5
Bracket.TheresaVery easy to install. Working perfectly5
Easy to installPRMariI used these to install the tracks for the sliding panels. It was easy to install, but did not include the required screws. I don't feell like you should have to buy the screws and expansions kit when all you might need is 4 screws and 4 expansions to hang a courtain.4
Handy and easy to install.Croatian GirlNeeded this for my panel curtain, and works just great together!5
Works greatPhysics TeacherI have used these panels in two classroom installations on very wide windows (up to 153” long). I use 3 brackets per 55” rail, and it holds the rails very firmly. I have the brackets attached to the wall with 2.5” wood screws that go straight into the header board. Good installation of these requires you to know where the studs and header boards are as well as the thickness of your plaster or drywall. You can easily collect this information by hammering a thin nail into the wall; if you feel strong resistance, then you hit wood. As long as these brackets are screwed into solid wood, they will be a very strong support for your Vidga rails. For wide windows, be sure to get a good level and a chalk line so that all of your brackets will line up properly. These brackets can normally hold 7 rails, but if you cut off the vertical part at the end, it can hold up to 9.5
Make sure you buy the right screwsohmygodbeckayThese do not come with hardware to attach to the wall, so you have to figure out the right screws to buy. Based on another review, I purchased #10 1-1/2 flat head screws. The flat head is important in order to slide the screw covers on. While the #10 screws fit, I found that they were exactly the same size as the bracket indentation for the screw head. I struggled getting my screws into the wall because I was going into studs, and so it was difficult to get the screw heads to lay flat and straight on the bracket. Therefore, I would recommend a slightly smaller screw, like a #8 to give yourself a little leeway if they don't go into the wall perfectly. My other complaint is that the top screw hole is very close to the top bar of the bracket, which made it even more difficult to use a power screwdriver - there just isn't enough room. It would have been much easier if the bracket was designed to fit over a plate that was screwed into the wall.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.

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.

Material

What is aluminium?

After iron, aluminum is the world's most used metal and has a very wide range of uses. It’s easy to shape and lightweight, but is still strong and durable. In our range we use it for things such as kitchen utensils, curtain rods and tealight cups. A big advantage with aluminum is that it can be recycled again and again without losing its quality. Recycling consumes only a fraction of the energy required to produce aluminum from new raw materials.

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.”
