          This towel bar unfortunately is not perfect. The matte black color is sleek and stylish, however the design is marred with gray plastic parts. The part that connects the rod to brackets is a gray plastic. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I included a picture of the area that I am speaking of. It was pretty disappointing.
          Otherwise, I enjoy the modern look of the towel bar. I like how the rod is a rectangle rather than tube shaped. The matte black color is perfect for a modern bathroom.
          Pros: Nice Design, Stylish
          Cons: gray plastic piece is tacky

          I have had nothing but problems with the washer. On the quick wash setting, the washer was extremely loud to the point I could hear it from 2 floors up.
          I did a load of laundry on the bulky setting, the washer began making a loud ratcheting noise and the agitator wasn't moving properly. I included a video of the sound that it made. There was also the feint smell of burning. I called for service and basically every part of the washer needs to be replaced. Mainly the transmission.

However, the transmission part is not available and there is a very long wait time for it.
          My biggest concern for the washer is its reliability. The washer is supposed to "sense" how much laundry is in the tub and fill the water to the correct amount. With all the rest of the problems that I've had, I just don't know about this washer. Read Less

          I used 4 different colors of this product to do a multi-colored accent wall. The four colors that I used in my project were Charred Wood, Barn Board Gray, Coastal Ivory, and Reclaimed Brown.
          Overall the Barn Board Gray boards were all usable. I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors. This gray color was definitely my favorite of the 4 as it had a lot of color variation just on its own. It is also a very neutral color that would do with nearly everything. The gray color boards did have much more knots in the wood than the other varieties though.

          There are some chipped edges. I included a picture of the edges. The flaws are much more noticeable on darker colors.
          You can either make a clean cut on the edge to get rid of the chips or use some touch up paint. The "finished side" of this product is smooth. The back of the product is just more rough. You can use either side that you wish. The rough side is a darker gray color.
          What I really like about the product is that the boards are very light weight. I previously did a similar accent wall with laminate and laminate is significantly heavier and much harder to install on a wall. This light weight product could really be installed by anyone without much problem. Read Less
          Pros: Good Size & Weight

          Of all the different boxes that I used, this reclaimed Brown Planking had the least amount of flaws and no warping. The boards were nice and flat and easy to work with. I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors.
          The "finished side" of this product is a pretty medium brown color. The back of the product was unfinished and rough. You would only be able to use the finished side of this particular color.

          The color of this tile looks nothing like the color shown in the kitchen. Does this tile have more white in it or does it have more black in it as shown in the kitchen photo? I want a look of more white than black in my kitchen.

          Answer: 
          The color of the tiles are Black, medium gray, and white. It is probably not the look you are going for as only 1/3 is white. You can look at reviewers pictures to get an idea as well.
           
          Turn your bathroom into a spa retreat with the Foremost 23-3/4 in. Zen Vanity. A large, modern, white sink basin rests upon a beautiful white Carrara marble top. For contrast, the vanity is finished in a deep espresso and features two doors with frosted glass panels, reminiscent of traditional Japanese Shoji screens. The cabinet also offers substantial storage space with a convenient, adjustable shelf. Stylish aluminum feet and brushed nickel knobs complete the look perfectly.
           

          Can I use this vanity without a sink tub and legs? Can any vessel bowls and a single faucet fit to the vanity top?

          You can use it without the legs, but be aware: I tried to do this and my wall plumbing did NOT line up without the legs. My plumbing was at a very standard height. If you are a plumber and know how to move your pipes this will not be an issue, but otherwise that may pose a problem for you.

          You can use a different vessel top, but if I remember correctly, there was a long hole in the carrera marble top maybe show through and look silly if you are using a clear bowl. You will also have to fashion a way to install your faucet because the hole for the faucet is on the porcelain sink that is included. Perhaps drilling another hole in the marble? It would also have to be offset to the left or right because of that long hole that is already there. (If memory serves) There would be logistical issues in using a different vessel sink.
