          I installed this LifeProof Tattersall Hickory Laminate Flooring in an RV that my family shares. I've wanted to upgrade but instead decided to try and revamp what I have. This flooring looks just like real wood flooring. The color and texture are very nice. The click/lock system made installation fairly easy. The only issue I had was in areas the required multiple cuts. These planks are pretty large so cutting incorrectly means a lot of waste. I used cardboard and made templates of the areas first then used those to do the actual cuts. The entire job took a few hours and the RV looks more modern now.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Great Accent, Looks Great, Looks High End, Looks Like Wood, Modern

          This Elkay Avenue Stainless Steel Sink would work great in a small kitchen or as a secondary sink in a large kitchen. It can be used as an undermount or drop-in. The rim is super thin so using it as a drop-in looks almost as nice as having an undermount sink. The stainless finish is very well done but this sink comes with a bottom basin rack to protect the finish. I also love the pads for sound dampening. There are cheaper options but they won't come close to the quality of this sink.

          I installed this Westinghouse Alesso Light next to my garage. My initial concern was that it would not provide sufficient light. Each of the wavy bars has an LED strip embedded in the back so the lighting is indirect. Despite that fact, I am more than satisfied with the light output. I have a Caseta Wireless dimmer connected to this light. That's mainly so I can control it remotely not to dim it. This light fixture is very modern and kind of artsy. Definitely worth the price.

          This Mason 2 Light Pendant by Designers Fountain turned out to be quite a bit larger than I expected. That worked in my favor because I wanted a new light fixture over my kitchen table. This pendant is well constructed with metal and glass. It feels solid and good quality. I had this installed in under 15 minutes. I used two 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs which give out more than enough light.

          I'm using this Home Decorators Collection Newport Terra Indoor/Outdoor Rug for when I go camping. I usually camp for about five to seven days at a time. We like to set up our area so it feels comfortable. This rug takes up just a little space when rolled up so it's easy to take on trips. Once we get wherever we are going, we just unroll it. It cleans up very easy with a little soap and water.

          astonman's Questions
           
          The Correne is inspired by Scandinavian interior design, specifically the mid-century use of bent plywood and techniques found in contemporary furniture aesthetics. The contortioned movement of the ribbon-like blades is the standout feature, while the minimal metal and glass elements add just the right amount of subtlety to offer an intimate sensibility that blends with a wide variety of decor.

          I noticed on the Casablanca website, there is a new Fan/Light Wall Remote Control (Model 99195) coming soon. The estimated product availability date was listed as 5/5/2017. My question is will that new wall remote work with this fan? This fan comes with a handheld remote but I would prefer to use a wall remote.

If you have dimmable LED, CFL or incandescent bulbs the remote allows for a full range of dimming. Hunter's universal wall control works up to a 75 ft. range and is compatible with any brand of ceiling fan.

          I'm curious why other rugs of this exact same brand, size, and materials can cost half the price. We have an Orian Rug and were looking to get a new one. We love this one but don't understand why there is such a price difference between rugs when everything is the exact same except the design.
           
          Being comfortable and cool just got easier. The SimpleConnect Programmable Control with Bluetooth technology from Hunter is the next big thing in home automation. Let's face it, there's a smartphone app for everything so why shouldn't you have 1 for your ceiling fan. Now you can with Hunter's SimpleConnect Programmable Control with Bluetooth. The SimpleConnect comes with a Bluetooth compatible receiver, Bluetooth plug-in wall controller, and a simple on/off handheld remote control. Set up is fast in easy with only 3 steps; Install the receiver, plug in the SimpleConnect Bluetooth controller into a wall outlet, and download the app (Available for Apple and Android). The SimpleConnect app allows you to schedule your fan to fit your lifestyle. Set your fan to turn on when you're home and off when you aren't. The lights on your fan are also able to be programmed to turn on and off when you want them to and there is even a security feature that will randomly turn the ceiling fan lights on and off between 6 AM and 10 PM to make it appear that someone is home while you are not. For those who prefer to fall asleep with the fan on there is also a sleep timer feature that turns the fan off so you can go to sleep with the fan on for a cool breeze and wake up with the fan off so you're not chilled. SimpleConnect is also expandable so with the addition of optional receivers you can control multiple fans with 1 Bluetooth wall control.

          The remote that comes with the control unit is just off and on for both the light and fan. Can a different remote such as Hunter Model # 99110 be paired and used or would that interfere with the fan operation when used via the app? Hope that's not too confusing.

          The remote has to be used but one alternative would be to install an in-wall remote such as Model# 99375 or Model# 99195. Technically you would still be using a remote but it would be fixed in the wall like a switch.
