          In my last home, I purchased a Grohe Rain shower and hand shower setup. What I did not like about the set up was I could not use the hand shower and rain shower at the same time and the hose was plastic! This American Standard shower kit is hands down 100% better than the Grohe setup. First, all the parts are metal and well made. The toggle on the hand shower has a slight audible sound and clicks easily. The hose is metal, extra-long, and well made. I love the fact that you can use both shower heads at the same time! The kit includes two check valves to prevent backflow. I am doing a full remodel, but you can replace your existing shower with this kit. I am going to use a Symmons Temptrol Read More

Highly recommend – you won’t be disappointed.
          The shipping was fast and it was packaged extremely well. Now if only I can get my plumber to work as fast! Read Less

          When I opened up the box of flooring, the idiom ‘greatest thing since sliced bread’ popped into my mind. I love hardwood and have wanted to install it in my bathroom. Though there are beautiful ‘wood-like’ tiles, my husband doesn’t like the feel of cold tile when he gets out of the shower. This flooring is beautiful, quality top-notch, and the water-proof design – ingenious! The flooring arrived quickly and was well packed. The manufacturer puts foam between the flooring so when it moves in shipment, it does not get scratched. The flooring is solid hardwood and ironically, when my brother saw it, he actually preferred the natural hickory hardwood base – that gives you an idea of the quality. Read More

This flooring is beautiful, quality top-notch, and the water-proof design – ingenious! The flooring arrived quickly and was well packed. The manufacturer puts foam between the flooring so when it moves in shipment, it does not get scratched. The flooring is solid hardwood and ironically, when my brother saw it, he actually preferred the natural hickory hardwood base – that gives you an idea of the quality. The flooring an be installed above, at, and below grade with the appropriate moisture barrier. It can be glued or installed as a floating floor. I am installing it as a floating floor. When installing flooring, make sure to open multiple boxes to make sure that you get a good color and shade mixture. Also, I use to wait until the end to buy the trim pieces (reducers, t-mouldings, etc.,) but I now buy them at the same time. This way when I an opening up the boxes, I can select floor boards that match the trim pieces. This is especially important when you are only installing in a small area.
          Since it is difficult to tell colors when buying on line, I got this flooring and the Hickory light Gray to see which one best matches the Lanceton vanity in Sterling Gray (Model #LT48P2V3-ST – highly recommend!) that I am installing in my hall bathroom. The cool grey has a wonderful medium color grey that doesn’t look cold. I took a picture of it on top of Home Decorator Cross Sawn Oak Gray flooring (Model #368501-00265 – also recommend!) which has a grey/beige tint so you can see the difference. I also took a picture of it against the light grey so you can see the difference between the two different greys. The light grey does go well with the Lanceton vanity, but the cool gray, with it darker color, is a better contrast. Due to the quality of the flooring, I am going to use the light gray in my master bathroom remodel since I am installing the Wyndham Sheffield Vanity in white with carrara marble top (Model #WCS141472DWHCMUNSMXX) and it will look stunning. This flooring would be fabulous in a beach house or a house with pool. Read Less

          I got this cabinet for our main full bathroom.  I wanted a cabinet that was modern yet would still look good in our California ranch house.  This vanity fit the bill with the shaker door, but clean lines and square sink.  The cabinet and top came packaged separately and well packed.  The tracking was easy to follow on homedepot.com and the delivery company called two days before delivery and confirmed again the morning of delivery.
          The cabinet, being particle board, is heavy.  I took out all the drawers so my husband and I could carry it into the house.  The only things that you have to install on the cabinet are the legs and the handles.  I am amazed on the quality and precision of the legs.  I assumed that after I screwed in the legs that they would have a beveled reveal to hide where you screw them in - not so!  They are so perfectly aligned you cannot tell that the legs were screwed into the base (see picture).  The handles come with two different size screws and one odd sized screw.  The larger screws are for the drawers and the one odd size is for the door.  The legs are in a separate box in the top drawer which they adhered with an adhesive pad.  I tried to use 'Goof off' which ruined the drawer and the pad is still stuck - what a nightmare! I ended up using soap and water, a scraper and a ton of patience! The company should think of a different way to ship the legs.   I was going to knock off a star because of this issue, but the quality of this cabinet is superb. DO NOT USE GOOF OFF!
          The color is a beautiful warm grey and the top is beautiful. The online pictures are very accurate. The drawers are full extension with quality slides, but not soft closing. The top drawers are 3" tall, 16" deep, and 11.25" wide. The four other drawers are 4.25" tall, 16" deep, and 11.25" wide.
          I am installing Lifeproof Starry Light 16 in. x 32 in. Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring (Model: I442101L- which I highly recommend) and a white tub with the American Standard Passage 32 in. x 60 in. 4-Piece Glue-Up Alcove Bath Wall in Serene Marble (Model:P2974BWT.377).  The top is going to go perfect with the flooring and the bathtub surround walls .  This cabinet is going to be installed in the corner of the bathroom so I am purchasing the additional side backsplash (Model:SSSE21-PR ) to match. 
          Other than the sticker issue, this is an excellent cabinet Read Less

          How random is the pattern of the boards? I installed Traffic Master Lakeshore Pecan (looks great) but they only had about eight different patterns so you had to make sure to open all the boxes and sort by pattern before you could lay out your floor otherwise you might have the same pattern next to each other.

          I see that this heater works with the Broan 86W thermostat, but was wondering if I can use another manufacturer's thermostat? I would like the ability to have the ability to do daily scheduling. If so, which one or what would be the specifications.

          Island Install, top flanges

          I see the range has flanges on either side of the unit for a finished "built-in" look. Do those flanges go around the back (where the vent is)? How is the back edge finished? Does it butt to the counter, require a small gap, sit above the counter, etc…?

          I want to avoid having a gap visible on the backside of the range in the island. The GE Profile slide-in range has a flange on three sides, with a built-in vent cover at the back. It looks like a drop-in cooktop, look I want.

          Answer: 
          The flange does go all the around. We had our quartz installer/manufacturer actually make a cut out for the stove to slide in as we wanted the quartz between the wall. I don't know what type of material you are going to have on your island, but you could do the same thing to avoid the gap.

          Hi, In my review I listed the top I used as well as pictures: The top is Pegasus 61 in W Granite Vanity Top - Model # 62684, I used the Kohler Devonshire 8" widespread faucets - Model # K-R394-4-CP; I think it turned out really nice. Overall great cabinet.
           
          Tired of recoiling your garden hose after each use. This coiled hose may be the answer you're looking for. It expands and retract easily and the hanging rack can be easily mounted for convenient storage.
           

          does the hose come with the wire holder?

          I am not sure what material but it is flat. They were absolutely horrible. I purchased 10 and every single one of them worthless after one summer season in the garden - they had huge holes. Someone posted that they got them to last longer by using a reducer. I would not buy them.
