          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.
          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 Read More

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. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Apply, Easy to Clean
          Cons: pearl gray is a very very light color, obviously you cannot drag heavy things across it

          The Merola Tile Celadon Aqua 11-5/8 in. x 11-5/8 in. x 6 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile features tranquil hues of powder and light sky blue for a coastal chic appeal. This tile includes individual square pieces that each have various geometric and chevron patterns to create one unique mosaic sheet that is available in five print variations randomly scattered throughout each case. An illusion of additional depth and dimension is created by a smooth and slightly raised glossy surface, which provides a stunning design. Its impervious and frost-resistant features make this an ideal tile for floor and wall installations including, backsplashes, fireplaces and powder rooms. Tile is the better choice for your space. This tile is made from natural ingredients, making it a healthy choice as it is free from allergens, VOCs, formaldehyde and PVC. Color: Aqua / High Sheen.

          This review is for the "aqua" colored tiles as I used two colors for my flooring project. These aqua tiles are a light blue color. To me, I didn't think that they were greenish like how many aqua colored things sometimes are. The pattern on this version of the celadon tiles is more noticeable than the other colors of the celadon tiles. The pattern includes the light blue color and an even lighter almost white color.
          I would first like to point out that these tiles are bigger than you might expect just looking at online pictures. These are not the small square mosaic tiles that you normally see in places like shower floors. The individual squares in this mosaic are much bigger. (Nearly 2 Read More

For this reason, it would be a good choice for a medium sized bathroom floor. There would be less grout lines and bigger tiles.
          I compared the weight of these tiles to another 12 inch porcelain mosaic. These Celadon tiles were weightier and seemed to be of a really good quality. The tiles are textured so you may want to make sure that they are comfortable on your bare feet. I thought they were just fine. If you are using them for a shower floor, it is a benefit because it provides a bit of traction.

          The first thing I'd like to point out is that these wall panels are a much lighter gray than I was expecting. I was expecting a darker medium gray from the pictures online. However, in person, they are very, very light gray. (See my pictures.)
          I actually do really like the wall panels though. They are definitely 5 stars for ease of installation and convenience. They are easily cut to whatever size or shape you need. Its good if you have a window to work around. They would also work as a surround for a bathtub as long as you had the 72 inches of vertical space above the bathtub. Your base, whether it is a shower base, or bathtub, just needs a lip.

          The velvet side of this quilt is soft and feels very nice. The reverse side of the quilt is not the same type of material. It is a more silky texture. The quilt itself is not very plushy. It has a medium thickness, but is still warm.
          Even though this is listed as full/queen, it was long enough to fully cover a 14 inch queen mattress. Even though it is a quilt, it doesn't have the stitched squares that I am used to in a quilt. Rather, it has more of a pleated look.
          The fawn color is very neutral. It is a light brown. Pictures make it look more gray, but it is definitely more brown in-person.
          Pros: Stylish

          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. My opening was 82 inches and it worked fine, but I'd say max height should be capped at Read More

          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.
