          I thought this looked pretty nice in the picture, but I had no idea that it would be as nice as it appears in person. The whole set is very modern and attractive, and I was happy to see the valve was included.The square rainshower head is so large and heavy, i will be a bit nervous standing under it the first couple of times. I'm starting to get the feeling that chrome finishes are back in style too, as I have noticed prices for chrome options are now exceeding the satin and brushed nickel ones.

          I like some room to put my hands directly under the spout of a faucet and this one lets you do that. It is a very modern and streamlined look, matches well in todays' contemporary bath. More and more vanity top makers are drilling for the 8 inch widespread and more faucet makers are accommodating them. Since I prefer the look of a cleaner line without a deckplate this is for me.

          This is a Kraus, which definitely means quality craftmanship but at a much smaller price than competitive brands for basically the same style sink. A great sound reducer, and the bells and whistles of accessories too! I came packaged well, and while it may need a bit more care and pampering than the other brand, it is worth it in the long run in my opinion.

          This faucet does the trick with a one hole pedestal sink or one that is similar. Easy to turn on and off, hot and cold. It is of a very simple, modern design would easily fit in with many various bathroom styles. I think I prefer the look of the nickel rather than the chrome I got, not because of any problem other than wiping it down pretty often of spots.

          This would be a great choice for an aging in place install due to its users ability to easily sit down and stand up from the seat. I had heard some bad things about two piece toilets and my plumber did give me a kind of funny look when asked about the install, but all apparently went well enough. It does take a little getting used to with the height though.

The rod easily slides out when you are in the shower to give you maximum shower room.

          and then it switches to frameless. I would prefer frameless in clear glass. Which are correct? i am also concerned about "bright silver" as opposed to "chrome". What material is it?

          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.
