The Crespo Single Lever Bar Faucet has a clean, streamlined silhouette that coordinates with any bar or prep sink. A slim black single-lever handle and matching insets highlight the simple elegance of this contemporary faucet, making it the perfect fit for any kitchen.

Technology highlights of this model include an ultra-durable Kerox ceramic cartridge, for lasting drip-free use.

          i needed a faucet for a utility sink i am installing in the laundry. Now that I see it I am sorry I designated it to a less than worthy task. It is quite nice and would look great as a regular kitchen faucet or as a bar faucet or secondary task sink in the kitchen. The compact head on the spout looks very modern and the single control and finish are nice.

          When I see 4 inch in a faucet title I think of 4 inch spread, a spout with two handles. I get it now that it is also fitting for a sink with a 3 hole set-up by using the escutcheon plate over the unused holes. This faucet is a nice one though, great no-spot finish and the ribbon of water put forth from the tapered, gracefully arched spout makes a nice presentation. The lack of an aerator does cause some splashing.

          This just arrived and I cant wait to see what the finished combo looks like. It is to be paired with a modern free-standing tub, on the smaller side due to space restrictions. I was only previously familiar with the old-fashioned separate hot and cold faucet styles. It is great that this includes the modern rectangular hand held shower wand. It is a beautiful look and seems to be a wonderful piece of craftsmanship.

          Make a dramatic addition to you living space with the geometric design of this three light island pendant. Straight lines and angles offer a robust look. Clear window pane glass shades complete the design, and gently diffuses light when the fixture is illuminated. Use a vintage style light bulb (sold separately) for a distinctive detail. Pick up coordinating pieces from the Home Decorators Collection to complete the look.

          This initially looked good to me because of the industrial style appearance. The nice thing about it though it that it isn't as edgy as some of the over the top stuff. The edison bulbs it is pictured with are pretty pricey, especially the LED ones, but are pretty necessary to the look. The dark wood top of the island it is placed over matches well and looks cohesive.

          I don't know if this is a first in the move away from single hole faucets, but if so it may be one for the better! Definitely not your Grandmothers faucet, it has a very modern appeal. Graceful at both spout and handle it is worth drilling 4 holes in your countertop for. Anzzi is a fairly new kid on the block but appears to come dressed to impress. I always wondered what would happen if my single handle sprayhead refused to retract one day taking the complete unit out of commission. No worries with a side sprayer.

          Answer: 
          Most paint comes right off of mirror glass. I would try to be careful not to get too much in the space where wood meets glass, but both oil and latex paint should come off with a 4-way tool or razor blade.
