          Designed to fit a standard shower arm, the HydroRain 2-in-1 Shower Head with Hand Shower installs in minutes. Once installed, it provides you with a luxurious shower experience and complete control over your water with a pivoting rain can and the option to use the rain can on its own, the hand shower on its own, or both together. While other products may gather unsightly mineral build-up over time, Delta soft rubber Touch-Clean spray holes allow any mineral residue to simply be wiped away for an instantly refreshed look with no need for soaking or the aid of chemical cleaners. The pause setting gives you ample space for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks, without worrying about overspray or water waste. This spray setting helps you conserve water, so you can worry less about depleting your supply of hot water - and you help the environment too. Delta Water Sense labeled faucets, showers and toilets use at least 20% less water than the industry standard saving you money without compromising performance. Color: Chrome.

          I was debating on whether to take off a star or not due to the fact that I think the water pressure of the shower head is too low. I would recommend this only to those who enjoy a lighter pressure rain shower type of shower head. Those in my household (who prefer this rainshower type) have no problem with the showerhead. I'm not a huge fan so I am going by their opinion.
          When you have both the showerhead and the hand sprayer going at the same time, the water pressure is even lower. When you have only one or the other going, the pressure is better. Even the messaging spray setting doesn't have enough pressure for my liking. If it were only me using this, I would take out the pressure Read More

Even the messaging spray setting doesn't have enough pressure for my liking. If it were only me using this, I would take out the pressure regulator somehow.
          The showerhead only has the rain shower setting - you can't change it -- however you can change the pressure setting of the hand sprayer. One of the settings of the hand sprayer is just an anemic drip of water so I don't really count that as a setting.
          The tall members of my family enjoy the fact that the shower head sticks up above the normal shower arm coming out of the wall. They enjoy the extra inches of height that this showerhead provides.
          I also have problems with the magnatite docking for the hand sprayer. It seems like I can never get the magnet to catch. Even when I think that I have it seated properly, I've had it fall and bang onto the shower floor.
          The best part of the fixture and why it deserves 5 stars is that it is extremely well made. I do believe that it will last a very long time. Installation literally took a minute. It also looks really good. Read Less

          Statement lighting doesn't always mean being the center of attention. Minimalist modern flush mount lighting unobtrusively hugs the ceiling but can be just as striking as center-stage chandeliers and pendants. There are many different versions of spectacular ceiling lights but none stand out as much as the Edinburg LED Integrated Flush Mount Ceiling Light. With a true Smithfield design - a grand yet shallow rounded body - this flush mount produces a halo of filtered light that is perfect for any room in your home. The matte gray finish adds a modern flair to your room yet the frosted shade softens the entire look. An integrated LED means you'll never have to change a bulb again and it's dimmable so you'll always have the right amount of light for any situation. Just install and enjoy.

          The light is fine, but is average at best. Here are the reasons that I do not like it:
          1. The color of the fixture is a darker grey. I looks more like a grey/beige/brown color. The pictures online looked to be a light gray or silvery color. It is not metallic at all, but a matte plastic. For this reason, it ended up not matching any of my other fixtures even though I thought it would.
          2. Light spills out of the fixture at the ceiling above the plastic/glass shade. The part of the light with the integrated LED fits very tight against the ceiling. However, there is no way to afix the plastic cover tightly up against the ceiling. For this reason, the light spills out.

          3. The light is supposed to be "warm" for its color temperature, but I feel it is much more neutral somewhere between cool and warm so be aware of that.
          Overall though, the light works as intended. There is enough light for a medium sized room. Read Less

          This review is for the 2 pack which contains 2 gallons of topcoat.
          I was actually pleased with the performance of this topcoat. This floor painting system is a bit more expensive than other floor paint alternatives, but it comes with the topcoat that other floor paint doesn't. The topcoat definitely makes it easier to mop and keep it clean. However, still don't expect to be dragging heavy things across a painted floor.
          COVERAGE: Since this topcoat goes over your paint, the product estimate of 400 sq ft per gallon is fairly accurate. I applied the paint and the topcoat to an unfinished basement concrete floor. The total concrete area was 700 sq ft. I used under 2 gallons of topcoat for Read More

I used 3 gallons of the paint for my project due to the porous surface. I only used one coat for each step.
          The "Matte" product does not change the look of the paint. It is an invisible protective barrier. I did not go with a glossy product because I felt that would accentuate flaws in the concrete.
          You MUST use this topcoat with the paint. The paint by itself will show every footprint if you don't use the topcoat. The paint by itself is impossible to keep clean. With the topcoat, it is very easy to keep clean and did not show footprints. I repeat, you must use the topcoat. Read Less

          This review is for the 2 pack that includes 2 gallons of the Pearl Gray paint.
          I would first like to point out that the Pearl Gray color of this paint is very, very light. When the paint was wet, it looked nearly white. Once it dried, it was darker, but still a light grey color. I nearly panicked when it was wet because I thought I had accidentally gotten white paint or something. When it dried, it was much more acceptable. This paint would be a nice contrast to a darker grey color if you are painting a stencil or pattern, otherwise, I probably would not recommend this light floor color for a high traffic area by itself.

This paint would be a nice contrast to a darker grey color if you are painting a stencil or pattern, otherwise, I probably would not recommend this light floor color for a high traffic area by itself.
          I used this paint on an unfinished basement concrete floor. It looks fine for a basement and definitely makes the area look very clean. (A darker color would have been better.) I included pictures of the floor contrasted with a white painted wall. One thing I will note is that this paint will not fill in or hide small or hairline cracks. They will still be visible in your floor.
          COVERAGE: I got about 275 square ft per gallon for the paint. Keep in mind that this was on concrete so the coverage will go much further on a non-porous surface. The top coat was way more true to what the package said. I would say 400 sq ft for the top coat is accurate. For this reason, you may need less of the top coat than you do of the paint. 3 gallons of paint was enough to cover over 700 square feet of concrete. I used under two gallons of the top coat for that area.
          This floor painting system is a bit more expensive than other floor paint alternatives, but it comes with the topcoat that other floor paint doesn't. The topcoat definitely makes it easier to mop and keep it clean. However, still don't expect to be dragging heavy things across a painted floor.
          The paint rolled on easily and covered well despite it being a light color. One coat of each step was adequate for my project.

          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
