          The assembly of the bed took less than an hour and required 2 persons for some of the steps. The quality of the materials is decent, however the paint seems to be only single coated (has a semi-gloss type of finish). The center support bar is metal and the four supports on the headboard and foot-board are wooden. This bed comes with wooden slats and does not require any additional box spring. Two of the slats have adhesive tape to keep the mattress in place since the foot-board is parallel with the slats. I have used a 10 inch memory foam mattress with this and it seems to be holding well even without using the tape. For the 2 weeks I have used it, there was no noticeable wobbling or Read More

          I decided to give this product a try as my current LED lights were not bright enough. What I liked about these lights is that they have a feature of setting up the color temperature. This means you don't have to replace them if you are not happy with the color temp or just get bored with the ambiance. The installation is retrofit and these can mount on the conventional recessed light housing. However, one of my housing was a little loose and this caused me a lot of effort to swap the last one. Please keep this in mind if your housings are very loose, as these are not forgiving as the traditional spring type mounts. The outer rings are replaceable to match your decor and the ones I've used is Read More

          The overall product looks great once installed and feelsvery bright compared to my previous lights (even though the light source is way less in diameter). I have combined these with Lutron Diva CL dimmer and they do not flicker at any of the brightness levels. Overall, very happy with the product and performance. Read Less

          This wallpaper has a peel and stick feature which makes the application and removal very easy. The wallpaper has a very random pattern and this makes cutting/alignment very easy. I used this as a background for my in-wall shelf and overall process took less than an hour with two persons. The results have been spectacular you can see in the pictures. The wallpaper makes a bland shelf pop out and gives it a very modern look.
          Pros: Excellent Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking

          I hate, hate, hate, low-flow shower heads, which is why I was very skeptical about trying out this product. Hair conditioning is a daily routine for me and this is the main reason why I dislike low flow shower heads. It takes forever to get the conditioner off. This product however had me change my mind. Coming to the installation first: it is like any other hand held shower, however this one needed Teflon tape for the perfect seal. It would be great if the manufacturer provided a piece in the package (a routine practice with most high end manufacturers).

          The installed product looks very unique and modern compared to other shower heads. However, the thing that blew me away was the performance of this thing. No way I can tell that this was a low flow shower from the initial use. The conditioner removal was an effortless process. Lastly, I live in a state where water is very expensive and this shower is definitely gonna save a couple of $ in the utility bills. Read Less

          The comforter set has a very light fill and feels very smooth like a typical polyester comforter. The design is very unique and its same for both comforter as well as the pillowcases. It fits on my queen sized bed perfectly without much excess hanging around. The stitching as well as the overall quality looks durable and so far this has survived a wash without any noticeable shrinking or color bleed. The comforter feels very nice with the air conditioning on. However, its not warm enough for winters and may only be good as a layer.
          Pros: Nice Design
