          The George Kovacs Convex Bath Bar displays clean curves and lines ideal for accenting any soft contemporary bathroom. As implied by the name, the Etched Opal glass shades curve outward to diffuse 180°s of light. The shiny Chrome finish on the holders is balanced by the Brushed Aluminum on the wall plate. This George Kovacs Convex collection is available with three, four or five lights. ADA compliant.

          This fixture was very easy to assemble but you might find some difficulty in mounting the outer skin to the frame as the holes at the top and bottom are not easy to align, since the fixture fits very close to the wall. It does give the bathroom some ambient soft lighting but the bulbs do not appear to be energy efficient...you can feel the heat they give off. The globes look nice but they do not align very well and I experienced some resistance when trying to slide them in the groves and there were some visible spaces (see photos) as they did not fit flush. It gives the bathroom some class, so I would recommend.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright
          Cons: globes not flush

          This was a splendid looking light and was not difficult to install. I used it to replace a flush mounted hall fixture and it just made the area look a little more elegant, rather than the drab dimly lit hall prior to putting this jewel in place. I would recommend it for certain and I'm sure you will find that it will dress up any area that it's hung in.

          Caged crystal ball design shades add a touch of glamour to the chrome finish of this 4-light fixed track bar light. The elegant look of this modern design will set the mood in any room with soft, ambient light. This modern piece will transform your dining room, kitchen or bathroom, but is also the perfect decorative touch to any room in need of a little refresh. Updating the lighting in your home is the most effective way to accomplish a striking, yet simple, Do It Yourself remodel.

          This is an elegant looking light and would dress up any room in the house. However, it is not a simple light to install, especially the globes...2 were difficult. I hung it over the stairway as it ascends from the living room onto the second floor and it provides bright but ambient lighting. I would recommend this track light bar...it really dressed up the place.

          American Contractor rollers offer high paint capacity with less dripping to deliver fast, clean painting. The fabric resists matting for complete coverage. Ideal for applying paints to brick, block, stucco or wood.

          I used this roller to paint parts of my driveway and it worked extremely well, not matting like so many do as the paint gets dry. I was able to wash it several times and reuse it. I plan to finish the task next week with painting a small sidewalk that goes around the garage. It's a very good product and worth the extra you pay for it. I would recommend.

          Before you purchase this, please examine your bathroom and the current cabinet, if you have one and especially look at the plumbing under the existing cabinet. With my bathroom, the plumbing had to be rerouted as the plumbing arrangement interfered with the opening and closing of both drawers. This created an additional expense of rerouting the water lines and plumbing. You should also make sure that this size will fit easily in your bathroom without squeezing too close to a toilet or bathtub. It is an excellently, well-built product and looks like a quality constructed piece.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy

          The handheld shower just pulls out of the outer shower head. The reverse when putting it back...it just snaps in.

          I love the fan, but have a problem. Turn the light switch on and everything works, and the fan is quiet. Turn the light switch off and no power to the fan. This makes it difficult to turn the two bedroom lights off, but leave the fan running. Any suggestions or do I need to find an electrician?

          Answer: 
          Recheck your wiring. You probably have the wires connected wrong as there should be separate wires for light and fan motor. Maybe your home wiring is not set up for dual control. If you're not sure, get am electrician.
