Ballard Essential Drapery Panel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twill curtains are great looking and great price! I bought 20 of the 108" white panels for the master and my daughters bedroom. Gorgeous! Good quality with a liner ( not blackout). Shipping was quick, returns are easy and great customer service- if needed. I recommend these!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality This is my second time ordering window treatments and I knew I wanted these particular ones. The quality of the fabric is great and they are lined on the back, blocking out light coming in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color and quality better than expected These are everything I wanted and more, quality is excellent and the colors were just right. I hung them high on a double rod as a shower curtain. Combined with a liner, they were a great foundation to the bathroom makeover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric & well-made. As always. I have been a BD customer since 1995. While the photography and descriptions are terrific, my expectations are always exceeded when I receive the product. These drapes are no exception. The white quilted fabric diffuses very strong light in a Master Suite and comfortably illuminates the room. I could not be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from burlap is so in I love burlap and what a great way to use it as a lined curtain panel! Its in my husbands office and I have gotten more compliments from visitors. Its just so different but does the job! Texture is great, ballard did a nice job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great panels Good quality, exactly the color I was looking for (butter twill, slightly yellow without being bright). They don't look cheap and the length is true to what they say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burlap not for the faint-of-nose I purchased the burlap panels for my master bedroom. They are dark enough to block the sun from blinding us awake in the morning, which was the main reason I bought them. The panels are extremely thick and heavy - which says a lot for their quality, though I'm not able to push them over to the sides during the day as much as I'd planned. Thanks to other reviewers that said their panels were various lengths and had to be hemmed, I laid them out before hanging to double check they matched so I wouldn't have to make alterations and/or exchanges. The burlap adds some much-needed texture to my neutral palette, however, the smell is quite strong, as mentioned in other reviews. I've had them hanging for three days and can still smell them from the next room. The look they achieve outweighs my bedroom smelling like the farmer's market, though I do plan on trying some of the suggestions other reviewers mentioned to rid them of the odor. Overall these panels are fabulous, and exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So rustic elegant I love them! They are lined but not heavy looking. Can be used all year around. Looks great pooled on the floor or tied back for the summer. They do smell like burlap.. But that is what makes them so rustic feeling. Also you need to steam them to get all the folds out from packaging. I hung them then steamed them wile they were up. Georgous!!!!!!!!!! They look like a million dollars. And the price.... Silly good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search is over!! After 3 other purchases, I finally found the right panels for my living room. I bought these in the Twill Bark and they match perfectly with the embroidered sheers I already had. They are well made, not heavy and would work in a formal or casual decor. The length is perfect on all 6 panels. I gather them loosely with simple tie backs and they look like custom made curtains. I'd like to note that the Bark color is really much nicer than it appears in the color choices on this page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisified with the service and product. I requested and received a swatch of the fabric before I made the purchase. This was extremely helpful in making my final decision to purchase. The drapes matched the swatch perfectly. The salesperson was very helpful and I appreciated the email updates which provided a status of my order. My windows are beautiful with the new drapes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So well made! We love them! I hung them as stationary panels, mounted each on a 2 3/4" flat (17 inch long) rod. They look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality+++ These drapes are beautiful! I hung them with clips over an iron rod. They were somewhat wrinkled, but the wrinkles fell out within a few days. They have a nice, substantial weight and hang nicely. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. Just what we expected. We got the plain burlap. Nicely filters out the annoying street light outside our apartment window. The burlap smell goes away after a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful drapes I was very pleased to see that the drapes I got were the exact color pictured in the catalog. They are thick lined cotton and only needed to be ironed once before hanging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from trilby basketweave panel debated between the linen and the trilby...still wasn't sure after they arrived, but the weight and the structure of the trilby is great! Love the weave pattern. Dresses the curtains up a little, but still a lovely casual feel. light and airy. I'm using drapery rings to hang them. They look perfect in my dining room. I may get these for my bedroom, also. I do wish the lining was attached to the hem for easier hanging. Not a big deal. I will say it was difficult to really see the texture difference on the pictures, when trying to decide on which material to go with.
