          This Levity semi-frameless sliding shower door has a nice silver tone and a very attractive design. The doors protrude above the bar for a very interesting appearance. It is a very heavy door, and I do have some issues in the odd way it was packaged for shipping. {The truck driver would agree with me, I'm sure.)The door was severely off kilter and leaning in the box.

          To help combat the spread of germs on our devices, Leviton has developed antimicrobial treated switches and wall plates to help keep the surfaces of our wiring devices cleaner. By incorporating an antimicrobial additive into the product material, antimicrobial treated devices work to reduce the growth of bacteria on frequently touched switches and wall plates in between normal cleanings. Our antimicrobial materials have been independently lab tested to internationally recognize industrial standard is z 2801:2000 and proven to inhibit 99.9% of bacterial growth, even after the use of harsh cleaning agents. The switches are available in a variety of colors for a seamless integration into public use application. The antimicrobial additive in this product is a supplement to and not a substitute for regular cleaning. This product does not protect users against food-borne or disease-causing bacteria. Regular cleaning practices must be maintained.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I got this to upgrade from plastic to metal, but the size is smaller than the average plate. By no means would I have had to use a "goof" plate, but there is no way I could use this as it doesn't cover even the minimum of mistakes common around a light switch. Had it been just a tad larger, equivalent to the average plastic or metal plate, I could have recommended it. Or maybe not, because of the prohibitive price.

          Choosing the George Kovacs Pillow Bath Bar for soft contemporary bathroom lighting is one decision you won't need to sleep on. The cushy-looking shades are made out of panels of deeply etched glass and set against a clean, glossy Chrome background. This George Kovacs Pillow collection is available with 2, 3 or 4 lights, all ADA compliant.

          This bath bar has a great contemporary look with just enough chrome and textured glass facades. With LED candelabra bulbs in a 60 watt equivalent it is bright enough to light up an entire small bath. The clean modern appearance adds just enough detail with looking overly ornate.This lighting comes in a two, three and four light version in addition to a flush mount.

          This hook is a fairly good idea, hanging 15 pounds can really only be done by making holes in your drywall, but if you ARE making holes anyway there are many other choices out there. This is somewhat clunky looking, the back plate being very large. But it is an inexpensive choice comparatively. The "no tools required" may be an advantage to some people though.

          The first thing that caught my eye on this was the shower head, but it turns out that each component in this set is very elegant and modern. Both the valve trim of the mixer handle and the rear part of the tub faucet have a very attractive rectangular appeal.I usually prefer chrome or oil rubbed bronze finishes on bathroom fixtures, this looks great in the chrome.
