          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 stylish double bowl undermount kitchen sink from KRAUS is designed to provide a lifetime of use. Handcrafted from premium 16-gauge T-304 stainless steel for superb durability, it combines function with fashion to create a contemporary look for the kitchen. The clean lines and tight-radius corners complement any decor, and the extra-deep 50/50 split basins provide flexibility for a variety of kitchen tasks. The sink is equipped with thick rubber dampening pads for top-level soundproofing and treated with a protective StoneGuard coating to reduce condensation and further deaden sound. A meticulous finishing process produces a corrosion-resistant surface that inhibits rust and oxidation while a commercial-grade satin finish and rounded corners make maintenance as simple as wiping the surface with a damp cloth. For added convenience, the sink comes with dual stainless steel bottom grids, a basket strainer and a drain assembly, included free with purchase. Each bottom grid is cushioned by soft protective bumpers to prevent scratching. For easy installation, all mounting hardware is provided. Experience KRAUS Quality and bring your best kitchen ideas to life.

          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.

          This is a great product to use with a swivel kitchen faucet mounted between the sinks.I really like the internal racks to keep pots, pans, or even dishes elevated from the bottom of the sink. The stainless steel undermount looks great below a granite or composite countertop. this is pretty midrange as prices for stainless steel sinks go, Worth the price for sure.

          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.
