          Easy to install and looks fantastic in our farmhouse kitchen.
          A solid built unit. The sprayer is rather heavy so you may want to keep that in mind if you have a cast iron/enamel sink.
          You can wash large pots with easy and the faucet cleans up nicely. Water pressure is fine too. I highly recommend.
          Pros: Looks Great, Durable, Easy to Install, Stylish

          The Cape Dory sink is a kitchen classic, with its generous single bowl that simplifies the task of washing large pots and pans. Crafted from enameled cast iron, this sink resists chipping, cracking, or burning for years of beauty and reliable performance. Available in a variety of KOHLER colors to match your kitchen decor.

          BUT as many have stated, it DOES NOT fit a standard cutout. (Our counter top installers learned that lesson the hard way... having to remake it)
          It is a solid, heavy quality cast iron sink. But we do have one complaint which is why I didn't give it an "Excellent" overall rating.
          There are casting imperfections which didn't allow the sink to sit flush on the counter top. It held one corner up by 1/4". Since I was without a kitchen sink for quite some time, I wasn't going to return it. Especially after fitting into the cutout.

But the bottom line is we shouldn't have had to do anything to the sink. Maybe tighter quality control to inspect the final casting?
          That being said, it truly is a beautiful sink and I do love it. The basin is large and deep. No trouble at all for washing large pots and is a breeze to clean. Although I do recommend purchasing the Kohler sink rack to keep the bottom from getting marred. It is worth the investment.

          Dimensions thermoformed panels replicate the look of tin tiles. Our 2 ft. x 4 ft. faux tin panels are available in a matte white styrene which you can install as-is in white, or inexpensively paint any color to match your decor. This allows you to achieve the same look as metal panels for a fraction of the cost. Time is also saved with the ease of installation because they are light weight and easy to work with, simply glue-up to walls, ceilings or backsplashes, and cut effortlessly with a scissors. Our panels are ready to install right out of the box, unlike tin ceiling tiles which need to be painted to prevent rusting, making these a perfect choice for your next DIY project. Why use more of your valuable time and money when you can save, and it's impossible to tell the difference after installation with six designs and five available colors, you're sure to find something you like. In addition to matte white; brass, bronze, nickel and copper are also available. Plus, you have the ability to paint our panels, giving you an individual touch that no one can recreate. We've noticed the specialty finishes such as 'hammered' or 'metallic' spray paints turn out stunning. You're only limited by your imagination. This design has a 6 in. repeat pattern and looks good in small or large areas.

          I've wanted to cover our 1970's swirled kitchen ceiling with genuine, white tin tiles but they are pricy.
          I came across these faux tin tiles and wanted to give them a try. But I was concerned it was too rough to glue them directly onto the ceiling. So I contacted the company directly and was told it wasn't. Yippee!
          I ordered the tiles and they arrived safely with no damage from shipping. I did purchase extra tiles and the recommended adhesive.
          My husband and I took our time and completed the project over two weekends. They were easy to cut and fairly easy to install.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Within 24 hours of running this dryer it started to make an extremely loud, grinding sound. I contacted Home Depot and they replaced it. I assumed it was a problem with that one particular dryer. I was wrong. After three months this second dryer has now started making the same extremely loud, grinding sound. I did not purchase the warranty so I am stuck to pay the cost to have it repaired. But I strongly believe this is a manufacturer's defect. It cannot be a coincidence that two dryers make the exact same sound. I also purchased the washer to have the set. It makes strange banging sounds during the wash cycle. I am not pleased with either.

          But I would like to add, I commend Home Depot for going above and beyond to help me get a replacement dryer when GE didn't want to. They even delivered a loaner dryer until the new one was delivered. Thank you Home Depot. I will always be a loyal customer.

          Simple to use, easy to cut and looks fantastic. Also purchased the trim kit which finished off the look.
          We have a 150 year old farmhouse and these vinyl planks were very forgiving which was a huge plus when installing. We did use both Liquid Nails and finishing nails. But it can dent so take your time when using a hammer.
          I would definitely recommend this product.

          For large rooms that require ceiling fans hung from greater lengths from the ceiling, employ the Hunter 12 in. Extension downrod white. This downrod offers a 3/4 in. Dia and a steel construction for long-lasting wear. A plain white finish provides this downrod with the convenient ability to coordinate with any style or room theme.
           

          We are in need of a white 6" downrod for our new Hunter Matheston ceiling fan. Does Hunter make one in that length?

          Answer: 
          Since we live in a very old farmhouse with uneven walls, when we installed this in our bathroom we applied a heavy duty construction adhesive on the back of each panel then tacked a nail in each corner. But making sure the placement of nails would be hidden under the matching trim. It's been 3 years and we've had absolutely no problems.

          I have an undermount stainless steel farmhouse sink and I was wondering which finish would look better? Stainless or brushed nickel? From the picture online it looks like the brushed nickel finish matches the stainless steel on my sink better but you can never tell from pictures..... Has anyone put this faucet with a stainless steel sink? And which did you use?
