Caf&#233 Panel & Valance is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58.
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 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 Beautiful and terrific quality I had been looking for curtains for my kitchen for years. I wanted something that was simple yet classic; these curtains did not disappoint me. The quality is superb. I have had them for over a year and they look as good today as the first day I put them up. And the compliments just keep coming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I loved these curtains and the quality was exceptional. I just really goofed on the measurements and had to send them back. I was sad!

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 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 Well Made, nice looking, great price - the solution for me I was looking for a small lined curtain such as a valance for an upper basement window media area. When viewing a large panasonic tv, the light streaming in caused a distraction. This valance solved the problem. We close the panel by attaching rings and easily sliding shut and open whenever we want to let light inside. And the curtain is a nice color combination that adds drama to my decor. Perfect :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely stunning! Beautifully made. The details are amazing! The curtains are beautiful. I will order the full length curtains later on. They are quality curtains that you will not find in other stores or on other websites.

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 Beautiful Valances I waited three months for these valances and they were well worth the wait! I bought them for my kitchen to get that French Country look. They definitely did the job! The fabric is beautiful and they are very well made. You won't be disappointed!

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 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 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 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 outstanding! This is the second pair of these curtains that I have purchased. One pair at my old house & now at my new home. The first pair was in black & these are the toffee. The quality of these are beautiful & my two daughters have also bought them for their homes. We all have different styles, but they work with every decor. Best buy, you will love this purchase.

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 Decent curtains. I purchased the toffee check valances. They are as described. Good quality, attractive and affordable.

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 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 Excellent quality fabric and trim rival custom made curtains! I am very pleased with the cafe valance I ordered from Ballard Designs. The excellent quality fabric and trim rival the custom made curtains I have elsewhere in my home! The rich colors are eye-catching. I would highly recommend this valance to anyone looking for a custom look on their windows!

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 Quality of product exceeded my expectations. The quality of these valances exceeded my expectations. They are fully lined. The hooks were included which made it easy to hang them on a standard curtain rod. These valances add the perfect finishing touch to my kitchen.

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 custom made quality This cheery valance dresses up my whole kitchen and beautifies the window facing my back yard. I searched for black and white checks for months before happily finding the exact fabric I envisioned at Ballard. They're expertly pleated using quality material, and I'd be surprised if they ever need to be replaced due to wear. A great find at a great price too. ~ Bravo - Ballard Designs!
