          I like larger handles on my cabinets because I find them easier to open. In my last kitchen, I got the Liberty 3" stainless steel bar drawer pull (Model P13456L-SS-U1). They are really nice quality handles, but the ends, depending on what you are wearing, end up catching your clothing which either stops you in your tracks, rips the clothing, or opens up the door. It drives me crazy! When I started remodeling my kitchen, I stuck with the Liberty brand because their quality is excellent. The ends only protrude 1/4" so they won't catch on my clothes. I love the look of the handles with the round at the base which provides a more finished look. The only nit picky thing I do not like is the line Read More

(see pic) The handles will go with modern or traditional.
          They were shipped fast, well packed, and included the screws to install them. However, I think I will need longer screws since the ones they provided are really short. At this price point, these pulls are a steal! Read Less

          I was looking for a new carpet for our family room. It was important that it could handle heavy use since it was going into the most used room in the house. I was looking for a solid color that would go with a wide range of colors. I saw this carpet and fell in love with the color. Because of monitors, it is always a little scary buying something based what you see on a website. I was so happy to get this carpet and the color was almost exactly what was depicted on homedepot.com. It is a beautiful deep olive green - not army green or forest green, but olive green.

I took a picture, with the flash on, so you could see it in comparison to a Pellegrino bottle and a St Pauli carton. Hopeful this will help show the color of green. It looks fabulous on my grey hardwood floors. It is heavy and I expect years of use and it to wear well based on the quality. The best thing is it can be turned over, to double the life span. Finally, due to the type of rug, at the end of indoor usage, it would be great in a garage or a covered patio in the summer. Great buy and I highly recommend! Read Less

          I got these bathroom accessories for my rental which might seem crazy, but I found that the cheaper accessories end up breaking/coming out of the wall which results in a call from my tenant. In the bathroom, I have the Delta Porter shower/tub combo set in nickel. I was a little concerned the finish would not match, but it looks perfect. The accessories arrived quickly and well packed. The robe hook is nice and heavy and came with everything to install it. It looks great!

          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.

          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.
