          The light was extremely well packed and arrived quickly. I am really glad that I am doing a complete remodel - down to the studs - because this light is heavy! I know that the product listing states that the light weighs 5.7lb, but it feels heavier. Each light weighs a pound! I am going to make sure to put up some blocking to mount this light. The instructions are straight forward and everything is included in the box.
          The main body of the light has the back plate and the light base that has the LEDs. You actually screw in the cylindrical shades into the base. When illuminated the light exceeds my expectations. I can't wait to get it installed. The only negative I can see is cleaning the Read More

I could not find any directions on cleaning the glass, but my assumption is since it is just glass, you could submerge it in some soapy water. Highly recommend!! Read Less

          I have a fairly large (5 x10) bathroom that had a single builder grade light in the center of the ceiling that did not cast enough light. I was looking for a track light that didn't look weird in a bathroom. I thought this was a cool light with the rounded lights that made it seem like it was made for a bathroom.
          Everything came with the light - screws and wire nuts - which isn't always the case. Installation was pretty straight forward but I had a really difficult time getting it centered in my room. It had nothing to do with the light, but the box in the ceiling.

          It puts off a great amount of disbursed bright light. It looks much better in person than in the pictures. I was hesitant because in the online pictures, the light covers looked cheap/plastic. They are plastic, but don't look it when installed. Also, the light covers look like they will be easier to clean than glass - another benefit. Great light. Read Less

          I have a rental and was looking to inexpensively upgrade the bathroom before re-renting it. Swapping out the shower head is a very inexpensive way to visually and functionally update your shower. Also, I was replacing a standard shower head, so adding the hand-held component makes cleaning the shower/bath tub much easier. The shower head looks fantastic and is a great upgrade to the bathroom. I am really impressed at the three different spray patterns on this shower head. For a water sense shower head, it has great water pressure. At this price point, it is a great buy.

          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.
