Café Panel & Valance is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful curtain...hard to hang! Beautful curtains, very well made and heavy fabric. They look great in my kitchen! My only complaints...they have to have a special rod to hang them, which we didnt realize. It has also taken forever to get them, because they were on back-order. It seems like most of the curtains they offer are on back-order!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Country Perfect I used the cafe panel 24" over my sink in the kitchen just add a splash of color and warmth. These are beautiful, lined with french pleats... way above what I expected to receive. Some might think with french pleats you have to use some special rod but I used a little cafe rod that cost $3.00 and the look is great! I am so pleased with my purchase. You can't go wrong with this item. I used the 13" vallance over my window in my laundry room to tie the two rooms together. Again great curtain for a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So perfect! I had been looking at these valances for months, and I'm so glad I finally purchased them! They gave my kitchen exactly the french country charm I was looking for. The quality is excellent, and the color was spot on. I couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for kitchen and nook I love these in my kitchen! I used the small panel over my sink and the pair in the nook area for a fresh updated look. They are extremely well made and look like custom. The grosgrain ribbon trim give them a nice finished look. I think they are well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! These are wonderful! They have a great weight to them, thick and lined, they don't feel or look cheap. I love them! The only downside is Ballard should include 9 drapery hooks per panel, not 7. There are 7 pleats but you'll need to add a hook at both ends as well, so 9 hooks total are needed. Drapery hooks cost very little so this tiny detail shouldn't stop you from buying them. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made, nice fabric, looks sharp I thought the curtain was very well made, the fabric was nice and thick and with the ribbon trim they look really sharp. I sew, but why make anything when I can get this for such a good price?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! These cafe panels are simply adorable. Great quality and a great price. I purchased the valances for the windows in our stairwell. They look fantastic and are the perfect accent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Material and Great Look This curtain is heavy and is very nice quality. The look is so great as well. The stitching is very detailed with the pleats and otherwise. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! I absolutely love them, and was surprised at the quality, which is excellent. I have had the small black check cushions on my kitchen stools for 10 yrs (they still look as they did the day I bought them), and just moved to a home where the cafe curtains are perfect for the garden window to close at night, though with the width I had to cut them in half which made them the perfect size for a kitchen window. I also have the 96" panels of the check which frame my bay window, (also cut them in half), the drum shade over the table in the middle of the bay window, and the message board! All in all my kitchen looks charming, and completely coordinated with a oriental style runner of the same black and tan colors, and I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you for adding the cafe's at just the right time for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made product I ordered the toffee check panels and separate valance for my kitchen and eating area. It matched my oak kitchen cabinets and is neutral enough that I can add some accent colors. I am pleased by the quality of the product. The pinch pleats and the material are similar to custom made panel. I like the coordinating chair cushions, i might order them as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my pantry classic pattern, looks great in my kitchen pantry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So well made! I bought this for a 1/2 bath. This is just so nicely done. The quality is top notch! Such a luxurious feel. The colors are true to the photos. I have yet to find anything that can compare to this. If you have any doubts, put them aside. You will love them. Very easy to hang. I do wish they were made in a way that the clips were not necessary, but this was certainly not a deal breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cafe Panel--Valance only Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I only purchased valances in the small black check color. The quality fabric is nicely lined giving the valance "substance" and the black grosgrain ribbon creates a classic, finished look. Although they include 7 small hanging pins--this curtain is top heavy and longer pins are required. Additionally, you will need 9 pins per panel if you want the curtain ends supported. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great panels and drapes - custom look I used the full length drapes in my family room and the cafe panels in my adjoining kitchen. I love these drapes! Good lining, good quality sewing - I actually took the pleats out to use on wider windows and they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I have always loved checked/gingham and fell in love with these when I saw them. I ordered the cafe panels for the top portion of my 92" breakfast area windows with wood blinds on the bottom half. Made the room!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpassed my expectations! The small black check cafe panels surpassed my expectations! The fabric is top quality as is the workmanship in these curtains. I used them in my laundry room, both on a window and on a door window, and what a difference they made to the room. It now is a charming place to work. I hung the valance with the drapery pins provided and the lower panels with rings. The lining affords good privacy and sun protection. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase and with Ballard's customer service, and would absolutely recommend the cafe panels and Ballard Designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality! I am very pleased with these cafe panels. They are very high quality in both material and construction. The ribbon detail puts them over the top. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality! The panels are thick and well-made. They are just as advertised - no disappoint. I've tried several other less expensive sets from various vendors and finally found the right kitchen curtains!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These curtains are awesome I purchased the black curtains for my bay window in the kitchen. They are beautiful and well made. I loved that they are lined. I recently painted my kitchen red and these look great. I did not use the pins it came with because I couldn't find a rod that would work. So I bought black loops with a clip to hang them. They look really good. I would highly recommend these curtains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I love this panel. I wish I had another window in the room to use another one. It is lined and came with the hooks. It is a high quality fabric and looks beautiful in my victorian bathroom. Thank you.
