          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.

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.

          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.

          Yes, you can set it to a static color. I can't remember if the remote comes with the color lighting, I think it does. But you will need to use the color remote to set the color. Search homedepot.com for (Model # HHRGB14 - there are two versions.
          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

          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.
