          I remodeled my master bath and this faucet looks great with the new oval stand-alone tub. It's heavy duty and solid and really sturdy. It's modern but has an old world quality to it.

          This kit is absolutely great! It simplifies the whole process of installing a washer dryer hookup. It fits between 16" on center studs and the plastic face plate neatly covers the sheetrock hole.

          This Cassidy Single Hole 1-Handle High Arc Bathroom Faucet with Riser in Venetian Bronze is the obvious choice for a timeless, traditionally-styled bath. Inspired by an 1800s ad for a Victorian corset, the bottom of the faucet is pulled in like a cinched corset, adding visual tension with elegant detailing. The Cassidy collection's classical design plays off of the hugely popular Victorian-esque architecture. This WaterSense labeled lavatory faucet flows at a water-efficient rate of 1.5 gpm, helping you to effortlessly conserve water.

          Really good looking and works well. The design sort of looks like bamboo in metal. The handle was a little loose out of the box, but i was able to tighten it up. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I'm sure most are shipped tight.

          Great heavy weight faucet that looks way more expensive than it is. The finish is very sophisticated and looks almost like a piece of fine sculpture. The handle works smoothly and the water comes out in a nice flat pattern. I paired it with a glass vessel sink and everyone that sees it compliments it.

          Can this faucet be used with a vessel sink?

          Would this be a good faucet to use with a 16" round x 6" tall Vessel Sink? I'm concerned about splashing. If not, what would the best faucet be for minimum splashing?

          Answer: 
          I think this would work well. The water comes out in a controlled manner so splashing shouldn't be a problem.
           
          The Kallos glass undercounter lavatory offers a distinctive architectural pattern reminiscent of fine crystal. The lavatory's design creates stunning visual depth, while appropriately obstructing the view of toiletries stored inside the vanity.

          Answer: 
          No more than in any other sink. I've installed glass sinks before that had no pattern in them and they show water spots much more. This one really hides the water much better.

          Answer: 
          Well sort of, but the pattern makes it not a problem. And since it's dark inside of my cabinet you really can't see anything inside the cabinet.

          What is the durability of this sink given that it is spun glass? (I have concerns about breaking/cracking.)

          Answer: 
          Seems really strong and thick and tough to me, but of course I haven't dropped a hammer on it or anything. Even porcelain sinks chip if you drop something heavy on them. I think with normal care it should last forever.

          Answer: 
          Depends on the sander you have. If you need the universal type with a lot of holes I think a 20 pack is the most you can get and only in 60 grit. But search Homedepot.com and/or ask a home depot associate to check on it for you.
