          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!

          As the floor installer in our DIY house, I have installed at least 8K sq ft of different types of laminate flooring, from engineered hardwood, Traffic master Lakeshore pecan, to this product. This flooring is by far the easiest to install with a much thicker mm laminate.
          I have had this floor installed for over 6 months and love it more than when I installed it. It hides the dirt, is easy to clean, and every person who sees it thinks it is real wood!

          As the floor installer in our DIY house, I have installed at least 8K sq ft of different types of laminate flooring, from engineered hardwood, Traffic master Lakeshore pecan, to this product. This flooring is by far the easiest to install with a much thicker mm laminate.
          I have had this floor installed for over 6 months and love it more than when I installed it. It hides the dirt, is easy to clean, and every person who sees it thinks it is real wood! I had 30 people over for Christmas – little ones, dogs, and this floor handled everything without a scratch. We are talking about dropped dishes, dog claw, etc., and it didn’t look that bad the next day! I have always been a solid hardwood flooring person, but this flooring is so much easier!
          At minimum, you will need the following tools - a tapping block, pull bar (Roberts model# 10-18-8), and knee pads. I actually had another pull bar and it was super useful. Flooring manufactures recommend you buy spacers to put at the wall. I find that they are worthless and make my own – a 5 gallon paint stir stick from home depot works great! However, when you are smacking the boards in, the flooring tends to cause the ‘spacer’ to get caught tight up against the wall or if you have a large gap between your sub-floor and sheet rock, caught in the gap. I found that having a second pull bar solved this problem. I would put the second pull bar at the beginning of the row I was installing. As I came to the end of the row, I could then use it to tap back the beginning to get the proper spacing at both ends of the row.
          Also, remember most laminate floors are just pictures of ‘wood patterns’ so the patterns repeat. You need to open up the number of boxes that you are going to need and sort them by the pattern. It is a little time consuming but it will ensure a well laid out floor because the last thing you want is the same ‘pattern’ to be installed right next to one another.
          To ensure the least amount of waste, take the time to measure your room and figure out how many boards will it take to complete a row. This is important because some of my rooms were smaller and would take only 3 boards plus 8”. Since the installation requires at least 12” spacing and a minimum size of 12”, I would have to cut my first board to ensure that I would have at least 12” board at the end of the run. The way I minimized the waste is I would lay out five rows before I began installing. I would cut 9" off the first board, saving the drop. Then the other boards I would cut anywhere from 16" to 25" off using the drop to use at the end of the run. This minimized waste and staggered the seams to give it a much better look. Also, I recommend keeping your waste until the project is done. I used some of the smaller pieces in closets, under the dishwasher, etc. Read Less

          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.
