          I used 4 different colors of this product to do a multi-colored accent wall. The "Charred Wood" variety is the color that I had the most problems with. The boards were cupped in multiple boxes making it very difficult to install flat on the wall. I was able to put a lot of nails in the product to make it relatively acceptable, but due to the warping, this charred wood color sticks out further than the other 3 colors on the wall.
          Also keep in mind that with the darker colors of wood, chipped edges and flaws are much more obvious. I included a picture of the edges with how you could easily see the chipping. The boards came in the box this way.

          The "finished side" of this product is a dark shiny brown. The back "rough side" of the product is more of a matte medium brown. You can use either side that you wish. I used the finished side.
          The four colors that I used in my project were Charred Wood, Barn Board Gray, Coastal Ivory, and Reclaimed Brown. I did not have warping problems with the other varieties.
          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, lightweight
          Cons: boards were cupped

          This product provides a cheaper alternative to buying expensive grow tents. I lined a wire shelving unit with this film so that my seedlings would get more light from my LED grow lights. I taped the film to the wall. For the sides of the shelving unit, I taped the film to some cardboard and attached it to the shelves. I included some pictures of my setup.
          The mylar film comes in a roll and is about the thickness of some thin christmas wrapping paper. For this reason, taping it to the wall or to some cardboard is necessary. It cannot freely hang just on its own. It does tear and get scratched up easily so take that into consideration.

          Replicating the texture and dimension of the natural movement of rolling water in a fountain, the Merola Tile Fountain Square Blue 12 in. x 12 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile features various shades of blues in sporadic tones and patterns. Set on a light blue base, darker muted navy and cobalt colors features speckled tones, mimicking shallow water. An impression of additional depth and dimension is created by a smooth and sleek glossy glaze. With a unique reactive glaze technique, each chip is different from the next, allowing for a completely unique installation. Constructed of porcelain, this mosaic is best for walls or light traffic floors in indoor and outdoor settings, including showers, powder room floors, and backsplashes. Color: Speckled Blue / Mixed Finish.

          These tiles are perfect if you are looking for the classic white and blue bathroom look. They have a real timeless look to them.
          The design of the tiles, I would describe as kind of a crackled paint looking design.
          The tiles are super well made. They would be ideal for a shower or bathroom floor. The tiles are sold as separate pieces, but there were 10 pieces in each box that I received.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great

          With carpet tape to keep them in place, these treads are a good product. The carpet is well made and feels nice underfoot.
          These treads definitely do not stay in place when pets and kids are involved. I have included a picture showing the treads flipped over and moved out of place after only two hours. This was only with a cat running up and down them.
          You'll definitely need some carpet tape with some types of stairs. In my case, I have these on basement stairs. The stairs are painted with porch and floor paint with a Rustoleum Rock Solid brand flooring top coat. The treads slip right off them.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great

          You must use the remote to change the fan direction. You hold down the fan button on the remote and hit the up or down arrows to change the direction. There is no switch on the motor.

          Answer: 
          Yes, it should work fine. You shouldn't have an issues installing. The reason they say its best for a 36 inch opening is because that allows for 3 inches on each side of the opening (so that the door overlaps the wall for privacy concerns.) With 37.5" I think you would still easily have enough door overlap and still have sufficient privacy in my opinion.

With 37.5" I think you would still easily have enough door overlap and still have sufficient privacy in my opinion.
          If this were mounted on a closet where privacy was not a concern, you could have an opening even closer to the 42" mark. I attached a screenshot of the pertinent numbers in the instructions manual. This product is a 42 inch door. People with larger openings will need to alter the backerboard offset referenced in the instructions to fit their needs as the instructions are optimized for a 36 inch opening with a 3 inch overlap on each side. Example: if you had a 42 inch opening you wouldn't want to offset the backerboard at all. For a 37.5 opening, you'd probably want to offset your backerboard by 2.25" instead of 3" so the door overlap would be equal on both sides. Sorry for the complicated answer. Read Less

          Answer: 
          The bottom of the backboard for the mounting rail is mounted at 84.25 inches so your opening must be smaller than this. You are cutting it way close. I measured my door with rails attached and came up with 84 inches. I think you'd be able to see daylight coming through so you'd be better off going with a taller door.

          From the floor to the tallest point of the roller track wheels is around 89 inches. You have no where near enough space to install this. I did not trim the door and installed the track at the exact height specifications from Jeld-Wen.
