Check Drapery Panel with Valance is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 163.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible!!! I bought four panels, honestly, expecting them to be a little cheaply made! Oh my goodness. They are of such high quality, that, I’m returning two panels because four are too many. One panel per window is more than enough!! If you are considering these curtains, you will NOT be disappointed! I guarantee it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I’ve been considering these for over a year. It was hard to decide on black or gray. I went with gray and they are perfect. The gray and natural in the check pattern make them perfect for my family room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Dear Ballard, I am very pleased with my taupe drapes. They were packaged nicely, did not require pressing before hanging, are attractive, and are of good quality. Sincerely, Pleased customer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking Drapes! I love these drapes. I tried 2 others before these and returned them. I had my eyes on this pair for a while and am so happy I bought them. They look great and hang perfectly! They are keepers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello Beautiful! These drapery panels are gorgeous. We bought these for our master bedroom in our new home. The room is pale gray, and I chose the taupe drapes to go with a taupe and cream duvet set - the room is beautiful. The fabric of the drapes is a great quality (hangs well and offers darkening with the liner), and the ribbon trim adds just the right amount of accent. We are considering purchasing another set for an upstairs room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! Thrilled with the purchase. I had been looking at these in the catalog for a few years. They are well made, very high end. Fabric, lining, and trim have a high quality look and feel. I have an adjacent window that I needed just a valance for. I purchased the matching valance that goes with the cafe curtain. It matches the panels perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!! Wow!! These are great! I purchased the "Spa" color which I think is really a gray-ish "Robins Egg Blue" and off-white/light tan check blend. Though these curtains really don't need one more review, I decided to upload photos because there weren't any for the Spa curtains. Very happy and husband even complimented these twice!
Date published: 2018-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTE PERFECTION I had these in another color in my last house, but the buyer wanted them so I let them go with the house. I bought again because they are the best made, fullest panels I have ever seen. You simply can't buy anything better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome These drapes are awesome. It was a toss up between the grey or the black check. I saw both in person but thought the grey was a bit washed out for my room. The ribbon trim is high quality and the drapes are even and well sewn. Fabric is quite heavy I could hardly pick up the box with 6 panels. These drapes that I purchased are the Black and Tan color. I lean towards contemporary style so was worried about the valance but it works; the small check is quite classy I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality. I've ordered six of these panels in the black. Worth every penny. They are heavy, control light and hang nicely. Only a minor detail, and not on all panels, on some, the lining is an 1/8th to a 1/4 inch longer than the face material.
Date published: 2017-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I love these drapery panels. The fabric is substantial and drapery well made. They look just like they are shown at Ballard's. Beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, well made I love the curtains!! Very happy with the purchase. It is wide and heavy if you actually want to draw them on very cold days. Perfect match with the black check fabric available by the yard and as an option for upholstery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handsome The fabric & lining in these draperies is outstanding. They look handsome framing the patio doors in my kitchen. I ordered the black & camel combination & couldn't be happier with the quality. The valence and trim add to the beauty & overall appearance. I highly recommend everything about this drapery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Taupe! I ordered these panels in taupe, and I couldn't be more pleased! First, the taupe is lovely. It's a fabulous gray taupe (no hint of olive/green), making it a happy match for any room. The sample views provided of these panels make the checks appear very tiny. Actually, each check measures 1 centimeter square. It's a great look and not too busy. I questioned ordering 2 panels, or 4, for my double window. I went with 2, and the width is perfectly ample. These curtains have a lot of weight and body, filling up the space. They also pool nicely. Finally, there were only 9 curtain pins included with these panels. As other reviewers have commented, the panels each have 9 pleats, but require an additional 2 pins for each end. So, have some curtain pins on hand if you hope to hang these quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back the original taupe color I ordered these curtains years ago when they were offering them in sage. Absolutely loved them! I redecorated my dining room and needed the taupe color instead. Much to my dismay they only had them in black and grey. I was so disappointed that I called and pleaded with them to bring the taupe back. They told me they had gotten many calls about them. I checked back recently and saw the taupe back. I was so excited BUT unfortunately it is not the same as the original. This color is so muted and is definitely from a different color pallate than the original. This is more like a light tan while the original had more "brownish" undertones and was not so muted.. Please bring back the original color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant yet Simple These panels exceeded my expectations in quality and appearance. The fabric and lining are heavy giving the panels nice weight for hanging. Also did not have to press or steam out any wrinkles after hanging. I couldn't see from the picture on line how many curtains rings/hanging pins I would need. Thankfully, others posted pictures and I could count: 11 for each panel (9 pleats and one for each end). They came with only 9 hanging pins each so I had to buy 4 more. A minor inconvenience considering the finished look is beautiful. I have the 108" length which gives me a 9" flare on the floor which looks lovely with all the folds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super High Quality As an interior designer, we hang a lot of drapes. I know good drapes. These were unbelievably hefty and very well constructed. Drapery pins (included) are a must for installing these properly. There are several good tutorials on YouTube to assist you in doing this properly and without much bloodshed. It is imperative that you take the time to measure each point of entrance for the pins. Do not rely on the print itself. Very well made, but off 1/16" here and there. This will not be visible if you do your measuring on each pin. Count on about 15-20 minutes to do this with 2 panels. They are so worth it. It took 2 of us on a 6' ladder to install the panels on the rod into their brackets. Make sure you use at least .75" diameter rods. Install the brackets with sturdy wall anchors as well, don't cheap out here. A little extra time and effort will hang these gorgeously lined pieces to be the showcase piece in your room. I will purchase these again for another project for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend I love the curtains! They are high quality and look great. The checks are just the right size, not too small, but not big enough to be too bold. I highly recommend them.
Date published: 2016-01-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful in a log home too! I have been wanting these curtains for a long time and wasn't sure if they'd look right in a log home. Well, they really do! Even my no-frills husband likes them as they are practical in providing an added layer of insulation in front of the sliding glass doors. They are high quality and give our great room a very cozy and finished look. The taupe is a wonderful neutral that goes with our fireplace and rustic decor well. The curtains do have some bulk when opened, but tiebacks should help. I'll probably switch them out to a more sheer fabric in the spring and summer, but these are perfect for fall and winter. A big thanks to all the other reviewers who included pictures. Such a big help, and I hope that mine are useful to others as well.
