          I had "builders" grade (cheap) white fans in all bedrooms, and while I don't really mind that in a kids room, I definitely wanted a nicer one for the master. I was very pleasantly surprised upon opening the box with this one! The fleur de lis design on it is really nice as is the bronze color, and the choice of colors on the fan blades is a real plus.

Beautifully accented with brushed nickel cabinet hardware, this attractive vanity has an open shelf complimented with 1 deep drawer and ample interior storage. The clean, durable white finish complements many decor styles and provides beauty and functionality you will enjoy for years to come. Lastly, the Buckskin vanity top and white bowl with its stain and scratch resistant surface is attractive and practical.

          This is a nice vanity, I love the rectangular offset sink. The top looks very manmade in the accompanying picture on the site, but in person looks more like real stone. I'm not thrilled with the pressboard construction, although the slightly textured finish looks like it may be more scratchproof than I expected. Also not thrilled with the hardware provided, but the handles are standard 3" and can easily be changed out.

          I have always wanted a Farmhouse style sink, but thought most of them did not fit in as well with a modern or contemporary home. This one certainly fits the bill, matching stainless steel appliances.

          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.

          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?

          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've looked for information about how high up the plumbing needs to be in the wall so as not to show in the open part of the bottom. I'm replacing an old, lower vanity, so I know the plumbing will need adjustments. How high is the drawer part above the floor?

          Answer: 
          The bottom of the cabinet door is 15 inches from the floor. The bottom of your pipe could probably be a few inches below this and still not be seen. If you need to have it even lower, consider the fact that you will probably put decorative baskets or rolled towels on the bottom shelf that would essentially hide the rear portion.

          February 15, 2015
          Answer: 
          Center set is merely the positioning of the faucet., as opposed to offset. The choices in spacing are determined by the size in inches, 4 or 8. Widespread is a just a descriptive term for the 8 inch, so they are the same thing.
