          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.

At this price point, these doors are a great buy. The only minor negative is the door can feel a little ‘wobbly’ when not shut. This is because the doors are on roller system at the top and not installed on a track at the bottom. Not having the track at the bottom, makes keeping the base easy to clean. But since there is no track on the bottom and only a center bracket, when you are sliding the doors, they may fell less than solid. After using them for a few days, you no longer even notice it.

          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.

          Answer: 
          A 22'x14' bedroom is 308 sq ft. It is always recommend to buy 10% over, so you will need 338 sq ft of flooring and underlayment. You will need 14 boxes of flooring (338.38 sq ft) which will cost $267.26 plus tax ($19.08/case) You don't mention what type of sub floor you have which will dictate the type of underlayment.

The Traffic Master Standard Polyethylene foam (model # 100779555) can be used above and below grade and comment state that it will be fine on a concrete sub-floor, so you will need 4 rolls at $26.29/roll, which will cost $105.16 plus tax. So the total cost of materials for a 22'x14' bedroom would be $372.42 for flooring and underlayment.
          If you do not have the necessary tools to install, I would recommend the following:
          1. tapping block - got mine at a flooring store;
          2. Pull bar (Roberts model# 10-18-8), $12.48,
          3. Knee pads - these are awesome, but expensive, QEP F3 Stabilizer #79642Q, $34.97;
          4. Titebond wood glue, # 5004, $6.27
          5. Rubber Mallet, HDX #31031, $4.97
          If this is the only laminate floor you are going to install, Roberts makes a kit (#10-28) for $19.48 that has the tapping block, pull bar, and spacers. Read Less

          No the hinges are not moveable. Two doors open in the same direction. Also, If you are mounting the mirror flush and want more flexibility in storage, I would see if you can drill additional shelf bracket holes. That is the one thing I don't like about this cabinet and wish I thought of it before I installed it.
