          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I really like the look of these bathroom accessories, so I got them for my rental property. They look beautiful with the Delta porter faucet and shower trim kit (see pic) I just installed them, so I can't report on the long term durability, but I am a little concerned on the quality. When I went to install the towel bar, the screw bent - at this price point, that is unacceptable. After installing the robe hook, towel ring, toilet paper holder, and 24" towel rack, here are the pros/cons:
          Pros:
          Looks great
          Nice weight
          Nice finish
          Everything included to install, including two different types of mollys

          We face a myriad of challenges each and every day. Cleaning clogged drains, thankfully, no longer has to be one of them--thanks to the ShowerShroom. ShowerShroom is a 2 in. stand-up shower stall hair stopper that fits snug inside your shower stall drain, effortlessly gathering each and every hair that tries to make its way down your vulnerable drain. It's the hero you deserve in your bathroom. You can rest easy knowing that ShowerShroom works great for all kinds of hair-- human and pet alike. No more exorbitant bills from the plumber and no more having to use harmful chemical-based drain cleaners that damage your pipes.

          I have long hair that constantly clogs my shower drain. This is one of those items that once you buy and install wonder why you didn't get one sooner. The drain protector is made of a heavy duty plastic that I think will last years. It catches the hair and other debris and is easy to clean. I am definitely going to get the SinkShroom for my bathroom sinks!

Use them to keep miscellaneous items off the floor and to carry project supplies from 1 room to the next. Slide them into a cube organizer or simply collapse them and store them neatly away.

          I was on a mission to organize my laundry room. I have open baskets for the dirty laundry, but wanted something other than open baskets for my hand wash and ironing. Since I needed to fit them on my 12: deep shelves, the size was perfect. They arrived quickly and well packed. The single handle, once installed, is nice and sturdy even with the basket filled with clothes. Because of the size, you won't get a ton of clothes in them - well at least how you toss them in a laundry room.

          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: 
          This is not the correct product for cinder block. You need to use a waterproofing product, such as RedGard Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane (1 Gal - Model # LQWAF1 or 3-1/2 Gal.- Model # LQWAF3). We used this on our cinder block wall before painting. Works great.

          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 Read More

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
