          Although it seems much more sturdy than my other hoses it doesn't weigh a lot more. The connectors are really heavy duty and hopefully will last a long time. Doesn't kink up too easily and is easy to roll up, and roll out for that matter. I like that it's made with recycled materials, too.
          Pros: Strong, Great Quality

          This seems like a really solid, long lasting hose. The best part is the super heavy duty female connecter; something out of Star Wars: big and tough and impressive. I've only had it for a month, but I'm hopeful it'll last forever. Doesn't kink up so easily like my other hoses.

          Wow, I've owned a few sprayers like this over the years, but never anything as rugged and high quality as this. I almost don't feel worthy... Just kidding. This sprayer should last a lifetime; solid, quality fittings and hose, great trigger assembly, and still light enough to not need to be on your back to use. It's not cheap, but seems worth it. I've used it for a lot of dormant oil spray so far and it works like a charm.I'll come back and update this review in a year.

          The chrome finish is super shiny which is trending right now. The design is a take off on a traditional look with the handles flared up. Very cool looking. The set is heavy and solid feeling. Highly recommended.

          The quality of the finish is outstanding. The weight is heavy and solid. And the design is gorgeous. I get compliments all the time on this faucet. Just make sure the vessel sink you use is the right height for this faucet. Vessels and faucets come in all different sizes so double check this faucet will look right with your vessel sink.

          Make your bathroom as beautiful as any other room in your home with our Home Decorators Collection Annakin vanity combo. Elegant design creates an upscale look while the rich chocolate finish highlights the beauty of the wood. This 36 in. vanity features turned feet, 1 large bottom drawer that provides plenty of storage and brushed nickel cabinet hardware.
           

          Is the vanity top stone? Is the vanity made of solid wood?

          Answer: 
          The top is definitely stone. The cabinet has some plywood and solid wood. It's very solid and heavy/sturdy.
           
          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.

          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?

          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.
           

          Does this show water spots?

          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.

          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.
