          With its ultra-contemporary styling, the Symmons Duro Collection was inspired by the clean geometric shape of modern architecture. Its precise rectangular form creates a unique minimalistic look for any modern contemporary bathroom. Customers can be confident they have made an investment in their property with the installation of a Symmons product.

          I ordered this as an offset to the Symmons Dia faucet, to make a non-matching his and hers set for a dual vanity bathroom. This is definitely the masculine one with its straight, hard lines. I have not installed them yet, they will be without the deck plate and though they are of a slightly different height and spout style they look pretty good together.

          The European design of the Symmons Dia Collection was inspired by modern industrial structures. Its clean, geometric lines make it the smart choice for any bath. Perfect for modern designs or a modern accent to traditional decor.

          I ordered this as an offset to the Symmons Duro faucet, to make a non-matching his and hers set for a dual vanity bathroom. This is definitely the feminine one with its curving and rounded lines. I have not installed them yet, but have placed them side by side to see if the desired effect was achieved, and they look very complementary!

          Although I spent a little more than half what this chair costs now, I still will recommend it at this price. Great for the TV room, the flat armrests can double as a mini table, and it is quite comfortable, even if not super cushy. I used the ship to store option and found the package to be quite manageable considering it is a fairly large chair. I will soon be purchasing a second.

          With sleek curves and a low-profile silhouette, the San Souci 1-piece toilet makes a strong design statement. A compact tank curves seamlessly into a round-front bowl for a space-saving profile. A 1.28 gal. flush provides significant water savings of up to 16,500 gal. per year, compared to a 3.5 gal. toilet, without sacrificing performance. This toilet comes with a Grip-Tight Reveal Q3 seat featuring innovative technology that prevents the seat from slamming and simplifies both cleaning and installation.

          This is a very modern looking toilet. I have a window above my present toilet that leaves very little clearance so the low profile of this will allow me to install a cabinet above it. It is a small bathroom so the extra storage will be helpful. I haven't installed yet so I cannot comment on that aspect.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Having only owned a large sized steam-vac, I might not review this as highly as a first-time user of a carpet washer might. While it is slightly easier to maneuver around and much easier to store, it cannot possibly do the job of its much larger cousin. however, it could have done worse. I bought my steam vac quite some time ago, and I thought I paid pretty much for it, but I just looked up its current price and a model similar to mine was only a little bit more money ($10) than this. Personally I would prefer model FH50130 with its larger water capacity. Less filling and emptying vs. not moving stuff around in a closet to fit it in, spending a few dollars more with.better cleaning. vs. Read More

          The seat height for the brexley chair is listed (even though mine seems to be an inch shorter), but not for this.
           
          A flat-front face and full-overlay design give this 36 in. bathroom vanity in chocolate a sleek look with maximum storage capacity. One right-side vertical drawer and one lower full-width drawer are situated in full-extension glides, easily sliding for quick access to powder room essentials. A generous cupboard area behind double doors supplies ample room for bath linens or cleaning supplies. The rich chocolate exterior finish also coats the interior panels, gushing forth to cast a warm, welcoming ambience throughout your bathroom. This chocolate-finished Claxby vanity from the Home Decorators Collection is solidly constructed with beech wood to supply years of long-lasting use.
           

          The specifications list this at 106 pounds. Since it does not include countertop or sink, does it really weigh so much?

          The Mistos is priced at nearly 3 times the Alteo, making this an invalid statement. What is the reasoning?

          The 9992 in arctic stainless and in champagne bronze are listed as bar faucets, but if you choose the bronze option, it comes up as a kitchen faucet. The measurements seem similar. Why the confusion?
