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.

There are many products available that you can now create a beautiful age-functional bathroom that doesn’t look like it belongs in a convalescent hospital. This shelf is a brilliant design. It provides a great space to put shower essentials all the while disguised as a safety handle. I have a smaller shower (4’ x 4’) and I plan to install this shelf in the corner below the shower head.

          I got this valve to install in my rental. I was looking for a valve that was solid metal - no plastic. This valve is made out of solid brass, bronze, and stainless steel. It has stops so you can shut off the water and replace parts - no tearing out tile/sheet rock! The parts are available on Homedepot.com. The rental is older so I wanted to make sure it hand pressure-balancing and anti-scald, so if someone flushed a toilet, the tenant wouldn't get scalded.
          I haven't used it long but in looking at the quality compared to other manufacturers valves, I am happy I got it. The only thing is if you are a pex fan, this is not the valve for you.

          I got this light to put over my kitchen sink. I really liked the color and openness of the light. My kitchen is not traditional or modern - and it fits in perfectly. It came extremely well packed which is important because the shade is very light and could be easily bent. It comes with everything you need to install it - so no additional runs to Home Depot. I find it sometimes difficult with buying stuff online to get an accurate color representation. I took a picture of the shade next to a bottle of Pacifico Beer. It is a really dark brown and could almost pass as black in low light. The inside of the shade is a gorgeous accent and will look great at night with the light on. I think with Read More

I think with the lighter color and a 60w bulb it will provide plenty of light for my sink.
          I don't know if the manufacturer meant for the warning label to come off in transit, but I am super happy that it did. Due to the design you don't want that ugly sticker to show. Read Less

          I am finally doing my master bathroom remodel and have always dreamed about heated floors and a heated towel rack. Well I am doing the lifeproof vinyl floors (highly recommend!!) so I can't do heated floors, but I can do my heated towel rack. I have had a towel rack similar to this, but not heated, and I found it was difficult to get the towels on/off because it the bars were 'square'. The design of this towel rack with the curve is perfect!
          First the 'feet' that go against the wall are 3 3/4" so even if the bars were 'square', you still have plenty of room, but with these feet you can fit two large fluffy hotel towels. Also, if you are replacing an existing towel rack, make sure you Read More

Also, if you are replacing an existing towel rack, make sure you measure the clearance depth! I am still waiting on my plumber/tile guy so I haven't tried out the heat function yet, but based on the quality of materials and design, I know it is going to be great
          The instructions states that you should have an electrician install this, but if you have wired a light or outlet, you should be fine as long as the circuit is GFCI. Since we are doing a full remodel, I am going to have this hardwired so one less plug, but you can also plug this into an outlet - got a large laundry room - this would be great.
          The instructions are super simple, I took a photo so you can see what comes in the box and what tools you need to install. The only possible negative is the unit was only packed with four pieces of styrofoam so it could get damaged in transit. Read Less

          The contemporary look and feel of this door will be a great addition to any home or office. With its full clear glass lite an abundance of light will enter the room to enhance its decor. The solid stile and rail construction will provide many years of worry free use.

          I am trying to figure out what size mirrors to get and I was wondering how wide is the 2 door cabinet area that has the sink? Should I assume 24" for the sinks with a 12" drawer?

          The Insl-X 1 gal. Semi-Gloss Water White Swimming Pool Paint can be used on many indoor and outdoor pool coatings as well as plaster and concrete surfaces. Its mildew- and UV-resistant, waterproof water-based formula has low amounts of VOCs for environmental and human safety. The paint dries to the touch in 60 minutes and should be reapplied after 6 hours for best results. The 1 gal. can works well on areas up to 250 sq. ft.

          Answer: 
          This is not tile, but laminate flooring. Yes it does need an underlayment. Depending on your type of sub-floor, will dictate the minimum type of underlayment. I installed this on a sub-floor with no moisture, so I could use the least expensive underlayment. If you are laying this on slab above/below grade you are going to want an underlayment with a vapor barrier.
           
          RibbonFlex Pro Custom Color RGB LED tape lighting transforms spaces like no other lighting can. Add creative color lighting to tray ceilings, coves, under cabinets, architectural elements and more. High performance RGB LEDs can produce an endless array of colors including shades of white making it exceptionally versatile for creative accent lighting.

T), it works where other lighting can't. Designed for custom installations, RGB LED lighting is highly configurable and can be cut to size every 4 in. or easily linked together to create longer lengths of lighting. 3M high-bond adhesive tape backing makes installation as easy as peel-and-stick. Requires an RGB LED controller and a 12-Volt DC power supply, each sold separately.

          For a true yellow, keep your red and green levels both at a maximum of 255. If you set the blue level as 0, you obtain a bright banana color
