          This quartz composite sink will be installed in an island with a standard sized faucet. I thought that since most two-part sinks consist of two smaller bowls that this will be sufficiently sized for a kitchen that also includes a pot filler faucet. The kitchen does not have a proper view out of the only window either so setting this up to have the user face into the living room is also more desirable. This is a nice looking sink with enough depth to be a main sink at nearly 9 inches.

          I have owned a number of American Standard faucets and they all seem to have a nice, substantial build quality. This faucet is right in line, heavy and solid. The speed connect drain is a blessing to those with or without installation experience. The finish on this is shiny enough to pair with chrome fixtures if the chrome is not on the blue toned side. All in all pleased.

          I haven't installed this yet but I do really like the appearance, it is modern and clean lined. I like the size of the hand shower, it looks sturdy. I originally was a little skeptical about the starlight chrome because it seemed so much lower in price but after seeing it in person and reading other reviewers say it took fingerprints well my mind has been changed.

          This Elkay Gourmet Undermount Double Bowl Kitchen Sink is designed to be installed underneath the counter, creating a fluid transition from the sink edge to the countertop, enhancing the surrounding counter material. Large, equal basins provide plenty of room for hand washing and allow for extra space to keep a strainer in the sink for drying dishes. A fully undercoated bottom with a sound dampening pad reduces the noise of water and dishes for quieter performance.

          I have had quite a few stainless steel sinks in recent times and this is a good one, maybe not quite as good a quality as the undertone series of sinks, but certainly quite good for the money. The equal sized bowls are not as convenient as the ones with a large size on one side, but this might be a personal preference dictated by the size of my cookware.

          It is amazing how many times I have seen this faucet recently. I have been watching quite a few fixer upper shows lately and it seems this gorgeous faucet is a particular favorite, as a matter of fact the person in the show of the same name uses it exclusively in their remodels. No wonder why, it harkens back to a previous era but still looks like a modern, brand new addition.

          I see medium density everywhere, but is it better or worse for a sub floor than regular plywood.

          Answer: 
          MDF is made of wood fibers, glue, water, and parrafin wax. Its advantages are there are no knots or grain pattern as with regular wood so it is smooth and uniform and it can be less expensive, it does not expand or contract when sealed, disadvantages are more moisture penetrable and nails and screws can be less easy to work with it. Also may release formaldehyde when cut.

          Answer: 
          I don't see any reason why not, I will be using it in mine. It seems to me any flooring suitable for the kitchen, which can and does involve wet, slippery conditions, is also appropriate for a bath. Perhaps the old adage of small room, small tile influenced the omission, though today that rule is meant to be discarded.
