Rated 5 out of 5 by Katydid817 Absolutely stunning.
I bought these in sage check for the sliding door in my kitchen and also the valances for over my sink - they match beautifully and really make my kitchen a showplace! I also have the sage check chair cushions, so the look is coordinated and lovely. I hung these with the enclosed pins (which I had never used before) and attached them to rings so the panels slide open and closed easily. The attached valance really gives the curtain a gorgeous finished look when both closed and open. And the quality of the panels is excellent - you rarely see quality like this in a pre-made curtain. My kitchen looks custom designed (well, really it is)! And I am so pleased with all my Ballard purchases.

I love them more than I could have imagined. I could not be more pleased, the panels complete my living room in my cottage home built in 1900.
Thanks Ballard Designs

Lovely -- have one panel in guest bedroom, and will be adding more the the guest bathroom and sitting room. I also have three pair (in the old red check) in my living room. I hope Ballard will always carry them.

I was hesitant to order these, since I could not see or touch them, but I read the reviews and decided to take a leap of faith. What beautiful panels these are. They go perfectly with my,hopefully, French cottage look. And they look great with my Talia chandlier and linen shades. I took a photo. Highly recommend, these are a good quality, and a great weight. The fabric is beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kweenbee An elegant country look
I am thrilled with these high quality panels. I searched the web for a long time to find just the right look and color and these are perfect. The toffee color is unusual, the check is large enough to be visible but not too bold and the top pleats have a custom look. I hung them with black iron rings in my french country dining room, then used the valances in the adjoining living room for a co-ordinated look.

I purchased the toffee Checked Panel with Valance drapes for my living room and could not wait till I got them in the mail. They arrived quickly and were easy to install. I was VERY impressed with the quality of sewing and fabric. The drapes are made with a heavy fabric and are lined with cotton. The grosgrain trim adds the perfect touch. They look gorgeous with my leather furniture by making the whole room look sophisticated and comfortable. I To complete the look, I purchased two matching cafe panel valances to install over my sliding glass door in my dining room which is next to the living room. Gorgeous drapes.

Very well made with lining that gives them a quality weight;
they hang very well, and after being on rods for a day, the wrinkles came out with no pressing required. They look wonderful in my dining room!

by Marlis Excellent quality! great look
I purchased the check drapes after much debate with myself. I wish I had purchased earlier. Not only do they have designer details such as the pinch pleats and the grosgrain ribbon trim, they are a great weight so that they hang perfectly. I have them on two large windows in our bedroom and couldn't be more pleased. Shipping was prompt and without delay. I'm a super happy customer! Thanks Ballard!!

The taylored look, trim, and sturdy fabric weight speak great investment at a modest price. Little to no pressing needed right out of the package.

by MemphisMomma Wanted To See More Pics
When I was shopping for these none of the reviews showed any pictures so I am willing to share mine. The eat in kitchen is where I bought the 108" Toffee panels. This was the initial staple to the rooms decor and soon I will replace the chandelier, remove the blinds and get roman shades underneath. The blinds do require pinch pleat hooks/rods which is more costly than rod panels. They come with the metal inserts however one of my six were missing and I had to run out and get some. I am a little concerned that I may have to replace all my hardware with bigger curtain rods because as you can see they still come out at the top over the trim. I hope my picture helps :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by GranJan Look like custom window treatments!
The curtains arrived promptly. Five 84" panels seemed a bit daunting for this grandmother to handle alone, so I hired my local custom drapery guy to provide and install the rods and rings and hang the curtains. He agrees they are a terrific buy and very good quality--look as good as the custom window treatments I have everywhere else!

I am a seamstress myself, and know quality drapes when I see them. These are definitely high quality, with a nice weight to the crisp fabric, lined very nicely to avoid sun damage, and the trim is beautiful. I love these curtains!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frenchcountry1 Check Panel Chocolate
This drape is well made and hangs beautifully. I bought four panels and one is about 1 1/2 inches shorter than the others. It started out about 5 inches shorter, so I'm hoping as time goes by, it'll "stretch" out to floor length. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryStLouis Over two years later...
I've had these drapes in my master bedroom for over two years and they look brand new. Every day I pull open a pair I have over a sliding glass door and every night I pull them closed and you just can't tell...there is no sign of wear or staining and the material feels crisp and heavy. I bought the black banded drapes and still get compliments when people see them for the first time.
I highly recommend these, they are a steal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by onthebeach Quality is amazing!
These panels are of great quality. I have the black & white ones in a bedroom and loved them......so I purchased the toffee and check as side panels to large glass doors. They dress the room up without making it look too formal. I used large rods and rings with hooks to add a couple more inches to the length.....very satisfied with the look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by almostgrandma Very high quality at a great price point.
Love, love love my curtains! Bought them for my dinning room, which is small but has a high ceiling. They have finished the space off nicely with out overpowering the room. Also, because they are lined, they are heavy and have a nice drape. Overall, an expensive look at a price that didn't break the bank!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NBlaze Looks Custom Made
I waited a long time to order these panels because I just wasn't sure how the check pattern would look in my formal living room. Would it be too casual or too busy? Well, I am happy to say that I love them. First, the panels are well made and of great quality fabric. They hang well and didn't even need to be ironed. The valance and grosgrain ribbon trim give them a more finished and custom-made look. The small size check makes the pattern appear more subdued and not too "country-looking". The overall effect is several steps above your average, run-of-the-mill drapery panel.
