Check Drapery Panel with Valance is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 114.
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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful curtains! I received these and at first thought they were going to be to wide for my standard 36 inch window. They look absolutely beautiful! I bought 1 inch rods, which in my opinion are the perfect diameter for such a heavy drape. I also purchased 1 inch rings and took clips off and put hooks through the hole of ring, the rings are also a little wider then standard rings which I think helps makes the french pleat stand straight and not sag forward. I used one panel per window and I used garden twine and made pull backs. I also purchased a valance to check if it matched the valance of drape, it is same material but it is shorter as stated 13inch. I will use the valances in my bay window with cafe. These curtains make my living room look so comfy and warm feeling. Thanks Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality drapes I love the way these drapes look in my breakfast area. They are superb quality and give my breakfast room a french country look. They would probably look best with rings, but I got the 84" and if I hung the rod higher the drapes would be too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Curtains I ordered the sage check curtains for our kitchen. Since we have an old victorian home, they actually hit just below the window sill. We tie them back in the daytime, and close them at night. They are beautiful looking, and the quality is excellent. They do have a light fabric lining on the back so they provide privacy at night. I would recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely curtains Have ordered several panels of these to continue a colour theme from living room into dining room and then family room. They are lovely - make the rooms look more formal but not too much so - and have been hung with pinched pleats in more structured rooms and on rings in less formal area - great value for price. Are lined, look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love! love! love! I hung the ivory/black check drapes in my dining and living room. I love the weight of these. They are heavy, and hang well. They make a room look cozy without looking country. I have cleaned mine with just a damp cloth and i vacuum them on a regular basis. The detail is terrific. I highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I have been watching these for a very long time just didn't want to spend the money on what I thought would be very casual. They are gorgeous! Wish they offerred them in different fabrics as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love these Drapes! I've viewed these drapes for a very long time. If you have considered ordering these, but question the quality or color I guarantee you will not be disappointed with either. I hung these straight from the packaging and they only had one wrinkle which steamed out in seconds. The fabric is heavy and just beautiful. I ordered these in black. I hope this review helps you in making your decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality!!!! I just received my curtains today, and they are absolutely beautiful! The fabric is a much heavier quality than I expected with "ready made" curtains. They are fully lined and truly look CUSTOM! I am now considering buying them in a different color for another room! I really do like the quality of Ballard products. I have many friends that come over and tell me that my home looks just like the Ballard catalog! That is a compliment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great detail! I love the sage check drapery panels I purchased for my bedroom. These are not skimpy panels, they are full and well made. And I love the ribbon detail, valance, and French pleats. Great value! My only complaint is that they don't come in more fabric options. I just ordered the other three color swatches to see if I can use them in other rooms of my home. Also would love to see this same drapery panel offered in solids. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Checked curtains Love the curtains. They hang beautifully and are lined with nice fabric. I will have to hem two panels out of four as they are not exactly the same length. About 1/2 inch. No problem for me....I sew

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I ordered these drapes for my bedroom and fell in love with them! They are exactly as pictured online. I have since ordered the same fabric to cover a bench in my bedroom and I love that I was able to do that. These are expensive but worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Check Panel with Valance I LOVE my check panel with valance. I ordered several and they look fabulous! They come across as looking country but once they are hung they do not give the country look. Happy! Happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous well made drapes! I am a novice to well made drapes, as we just moved into our new home, but I fell in love with these. I ordered them and am so happy I did! They are surprisingly thick and substantial, the grosgrain trim and pleats are beautiful. They are the perfect addition to my new kitchen. I love the fact that they are elegant and casual all at once. They are very French-country or Tuscan chic. I wasn't sure about the drapery pins, but they are easy to figure out. I got a decorative rod and used curtain rings, but you could also easily use a traverse rod. I have the drapes over my sliding glass doors and the cafe curtains on a nearby window. The valances were on back order but I can't wait to receive those as well to complete the look. I also love that you can coordinate these drapes with many other products...I plan on purchasing counter stools and getting the toffee check cushions, and I bought the toffee check pillows to carry the pattern through into my adjacent family room. Very won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Draperies!!! I bought these for my den--a Country French eclectic feel room--and these look amazing! Pinch pleat drapes, though a little more work to hang than draperies with a rod pocket they are so, so worth it! The difference in the "look" is classy without coming off as formal or stuffy. I love the pinch pleats but especially love the black ribbon edge trim. It's a great accent to them and makes them stand out a little more. If you're on the fence about these, get off and buy them; you won't regret this purchase!
