          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.

          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.

          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

          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.

          Answer: 
          The included bulb is very dim, but it is meant to be decorative and retro rather than functional. It produces a very yellow light (as most edison filiment bulbs do.)
          You can switch out this bulb for another bulb with more lumens. The fixture had a sticker on it that said it was rated up to 14 watts. (So you must use another LED bulb.) Just find a bulb that is 14 or less wattage with the most lumens Read More

Just find a bulb that is 14 or less wattage with the most lumens you can find. For example, you could buy a 13 watt LED bulb with 1100 Lumens and this would be equal to about a 75 or 100 watt incandescent bulb. This would be bright enough for most rooms. If the room is really big, and if you plan on reading in the room, you probably want to add supplemental lights. Read Less

          Answer: 
          It sounds like you have really hard water. The white film is probably calcium residue. Maybe try pouring filtered water into the reservoir and see if that helps. Using distilled water would solve these issues as well. You are also probably breathing in that white film.

          Overview and other colors in this model say there is a remote. One responder to the question of reversing the fan direction says that no need to go up a ladder and move a switch, use the remote. BUT, "Specifications" for this "white" fan says Remote? NO. Well is there a remote or not and if so can you use it to reverse directions?

          Answer: 
          There is a remote that controls the light and the fan speed only. It does NOT control the fan direction. You must access the switch for fan direction on the fan itself. It is hidden under a cover plate. So you'll have to use a step stool to access it.

          You can hang this on the wall. There are instructions included for how to do it. The boards are not too thick, but what makes this particular brand a bit more difficult to hang is that the planks are very long which obviously makes each plank heavier. A shorter plank would be easier to hang and handle vertically.

          What makes this laminate good for a wall is all the different patterns on the planks which makes it interesting to look at and a good choice for a wall. Just be sure to have a strong construction adhesive and a nail gun to nail all the planks into the wall studs. It would be fine. Read Less

          2 questions....Can you use it on granite counters? Also, I wanted to buy an ammonia free product. It doesn't mention that ammonia in the ingredients. Is there ammonia in it?

          Answer: 
          Even though the ingredients are not listed, this is supposed to be ammonia free. The product states it is safe to use on stone such as granite. If there was ammonia present, the instructions would likely not state that. A lot of people appear to be using it on granite counters as well.
