          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

          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!

          Our Wood Handle Bins are portable and sturdy fabric drawers made to hold anything you may need. 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. These multi-purpose items are storage units and carrying baskets all in one.

          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.

          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.
           

          Does this door come w/ obscure glass (pre-hung)?

          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.
