Kovacs GK P5042 Reviews
Rated 3 out of
Attractive, but not brightThe T10 tubular bulbs are a nuisance - difficult to find with enough light output. the 40W bulbs available at my local store are not nearly bright enough, and there are no good CFL options in this size. Use this fixture only if you need just a little light.

Excellent productVery sharp looking product and looks fantastic in my newly renovated bathroom. No more diffiuclt to install than any other lighting product. Would highly recommend it. Unit was able to accomodate slim/compact high-efficiency flourescent light bulbs (rather than the recommended torpedo shaped traditional light bulbs).

Gorgeous light. Troublesome bulbs.The fixtures themselves are wonderful. Perfect for the space. The issues came with the bulbs. It is very hard, dare i say impossible, to find a cool white T10. Therefore, the light is yellow; which detracts from the clean, crisp, cool lines of the fixtures.

Don't buy these as vanity lightsThe brightest bulb you can use with this fixture is the 60 watt T10. Using two of those bulbs above a vanity provides very poor lighting. Even the old-style 60 watt incandescent bulbs provide much more light. We installed these in two new bathrooms and now we're going to have to throw them away and buy some real lights.

Great clean designI have ordered many of these handsome fixtures from time to time, for my design projects. They are great clean design that go with all mid century and contemporary installations. Their versatility allows either horizontal or vertical installation.The quality is commensurate with the design. My clients love them.

finicky, but we got it to workthis light fixture looks fantastic, but while one of them set up just fine, the other fixture wasn't so. one of the light bulb sockets was misaligned or poorly connected to the electrical and we had to have our bathroom remodel crew "fix" a brand new light we bought. this is a shame. thankfully it's up now and looks great.

very nice fixture.I would recommend this to anyone who likes that retro/deco/ comtemporary vibe. Easy to install and aesthetically brilliant. no special bulbs and versatile as you can install horizontally above a mirror or cabinet or install two vertically on each side of the mirror. great looking, great price. worth the time!
