          The Pfister Rhen 8 inch widespread 2-handle trough bathroom faucet in matte black allows water to cascade down like a waterfall, due to the taller faucet; I did notice if the water valves allowed too much water to come through, the water would come over the sides of the trough faucet - so just adjust the water valves as seen fit to avoid this problem.

          Installation was much easier due to the fact the directions and pictures provided helped smooth the installation process. I also love that the faucet handles have cartridges - over time if the handles fail, then only the cartridges have to be replaced; you don't have to worry about replacing either the entire handle set or the faucet (if a compatible handle set can't be found to fit the existing faucet features). In addition, I loved not having to fumble with drain attachment and lift bar that goes in the faucet; this faucet doesn't have that option - Hooray!!!! Its push button drain system is also easy to install and use. The only quirk for this faucet is that it doesn't come with water supply hoses - which isn't a huge deal but you already paying over $300 for this faucet set.
          I do like the design of the faucet and handles, especially towards the bottom; the bottom reminds me of mermaid dress. The matte black color also hides water spots and smudges well, while not being a drastic color contrast against the oil rubbed bronze vanity and fixtures, the Behr Parsnip wall color, an the Rustic Gold countertop.

          The Hampton Forge Argentum Hammered 14 piece cutlery block set comes with the following: 8" chef and bread knives, 5.5" sankotu and 5.5" serrated utility knives, 3.5" parer, 6 4.5" steak knives, sharpener, shears, and cutlery block. The set is nicely weighted, sharp cutlery; the weight and feel of the cutlery is on par with Zwilling J. A. Henckels cutlery. The hammered design is present throughout the knives except on the blade. The shears can cut through medium density bones with ease. I also like the honing knife is not only included, but also has a place on the cutlery block
          Pros: Convenient, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, honing knife included, on par with zwilling j.a. henckels

          The LifeProof Laminate Flooring in Warm Cinnamon Hickory is true to color - a reddish brown hue hickory. The 12 mm thickness layer, beveled edges, and textured graining make the laminate appear much like engineered wood.
          Unfortunately, the installation didn't run smoothly at all. No matter how hard I've tried, the floors wouldn't stay locked in place. I opened 3 out of the 7 boxes received and not one plank row would stay connected; what should have taken 4 hours to complete the entire 130 sq. ft. room took 4 hours trying to keep the first 3 rows locked together. Maybe those three boxes were from a bad batch, but I didn't want to waste time fiddling with the other boxes and possibly have Read More

          The Home Decorators Collection Maldives Aqua rug features a starburst pattern of Dahlias; the rug itself is aqua but the the floral pattern is off-white. The rug can be used outdoors as well; however, mine is placed in the mudroom. It is easy to clean - vacuuming, spot cleaning with dawn, or water rinse off isn't a problem. I do like not having to use either a rug pad or heavy object to keep the rug in place - it stays put even on the tile floors.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Great Accent, Sturdy, stays put - no rug pad or heavy furniture needed

          The Home Decorators Collection Izzie Light Blue Runner Rug is approximately 2 feet by 8 feet; the runner rug is quite soft to the touch. Even though the latex backing is supposed to keep it in place, the rug will require a rug pad, furniture, or something else to keep it in place on either tile, laminate, or vinyl floors; I have mine slightly under the front sofa legs. The light blue color is complemented by shades of white, red, yellow, green and purple in this minimal floral pattern.
          Pros: Great Accent, Looks Great, soft
          Cons: needs a rug pad furniture etc to keep in place

          October 7, 2015
          Is it possible to convert the unfinished wall cabinet into floor cabinet with legs? I just need a small cabinet to fill approx. 12" between 2 vanities. The base cabinets available are too big in depth (25"), will protrude from the vanity setup (which is 22" in depth), and don't have legs.

          Random-toned Greecian White hexagonal pieces comprise this fabulous 12 in. x 12 in. Polished Marble Mosaic Tile from MSI. It is suitable for use with subsurface heating elements and is semi-vitreous, so installation options are plentiful for floors and walls in bathrooms, kitchens, hallways and walk-in closets. Frost resistance makes them suitable for exterior applications and they are highly skid-resistant to foster solid footing. Use this mesh-mounted tile in any commercial or residential setting for an upscale, affordable look. Note: inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer.

          The Nutmeg Simple Weave casual natural shade (also called a bamboo blind or bamboo shade) is composed of natural, environmentally friendly materials and installs easily with simple hooks. It has a textured nutmeg finish that complements many hardwood floor and furniture styles, and looks great with a jute or sisal rugs. Bamboo matchstick slats are held together by an expensive looking satin-weave cord, and gently roll up when more sunlight is needed. Textured natural shades are stylishly complementary to coastal, lake, beach, mountain, cottage, or traditional styles of interior decorating. Consider climate conditions before hanging bamboo shades outdoors. Bamboo is a natural material. If you plan to use this bamboo natural shade on an outdoor porch or deck, simply unhook and bring indoors during wet or poor weather.

          Answer: 
          The pull out hose just streams water like a combination of both features; there isn't a button to change from normal faucet stream to a more pressurized stream from a side spray feature of a faucet. However, I haven't found that the water pressure is less than the side spray feature of the faucet.

          We bought a house with these tiles installed and they are peeling up at the corners. Decided to remove them and would like to know an easy way to remove the adhesive to clean up the floor that is under tiles.
          thank you
          July 18, 2014
          Answer: 
          I used a handybar to lift the tiles and used Goo Gone and a plastic putty knife to loosen and to remove the adhesive; for the spots that had more adhesive left on the tile, I just left it on longer (~ 15min) and removed with putty knife. Afterwards, I mopped the floor to remove any residual from the Goo Gone.

          Can I use spacers between tiles?

          In the review, they state they used 3/16" spacers and I do like the way their bathroom looks, we I was concerned with each tile being different that it would be very noticable, but if you can use spacers that would be better.

          Answer: 
          Some reviewers have mentioned using tile spacers and grout and have great success. I didn't and I don't think the manufacturer recommends it for this type of tile; the ceramica version can be grouted and not void the warranty
