          This flooring has a rustic appearance,and looks and feels like wood. Like real wood all pieces appear slightly different making a more realistic look Installation was a breeze, they snap together easily and stay put. And they do have the appearance of real wood! They are water resistant, so if there is a spill, it wipes up easy and should not soak in and cause any issue.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Feels Like Wood, Looks Great, Looks Like Wood

          We were looking for flooring for our 5th wheel RV that we are remodeling, and these fit the bill perfectly. They are very easy to trim which made fitting them to the many corners in an RV easy. The texture and low gloss look great, and help to provide a slip resistant surface which is always a plus when used on a floor subject to fishermen and kids with wet sneakers!

The medium width, medium gray color & embossed finish are able to transcend well beyond just one design style to put itself to work in any home or business. This design is one that will span many years of trends allowing you to know you've made the right choice for your space.

          We were wanting a floor that looked as if it was made from weathered lumber, with the color of weathered barn wood. We got this flooring because of the texture and color. The texture is as close to real barn lumber as you can get, but without splinters. Installation was the same as any other floating laminate floor. We have found that a better grade of underlayment produces a quieter floor and recommend it.

          We got this light fixture specifically for the driftwood finish to match the gray oak flooring in our kitchen, and it was a perfect match. As you can see, we added a box made from the same laminate as the floor, to drop the fixture down some due to our high ceilings and it worked and matched great. Installation was a little tricky because the screws the attach to light to the base are barely long enough to start the nuts, but otherwise we had no issues.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, Unique

          The Complete Cable Concealer Management Kit in Black from Stalwart is the perfect cord organizer. It contains everything you need to organize those messy cables. Each kit contains 6 cable cover raceways 1-1/8 in. x 11/16 in. x 25 in. each. That is 150 in. of cable concealment.

          This item worked great for us to conceal the tangle of wires behind our DVD, surround sound system, satellite receiver and TV. It comes with about twelve feet of channel, adhesive strips for each section of channel, and enough T’s and elbows for a variety of different designs. The adhesive appears to adhere to the wall well so far. The covers open easily if there is every a need to add additional wires or cables. I only gave this an “average” rating due to the T’s and elbows. While the channels and the adhesive strips are good, the other fittings are somewhat flimsy and don’t attach well to the channels.

          Why is this Maple plywood $10 cheaper than the Birch and Red Oak plywood? Is there a deficiency with this type of plywood compared with the other 2?

          Answer: 
          The price of plywood is determined by the price of the final veneer. In this case maple is less expensive than birch or red oak wood for the outer veneer that gives the plywood it's grain and color.
