          The Courant is a traditional faucet design that works well with a wide array of bathroom styles. Its decorative handles and high arc spout will add a touch of elegance to any bathroom remodel or faucet replacement. The swivel spout adds extra functionality when hand washing clothing or washing your hands.

          I was not aware of the swivel spout when I ordered this, I was replacing a worn ORB faucet and needed the widespread and this one looked like it would fit with the other fixtures. Conveniently, this swivels out of the way when watering a plant or filling a bowl or bucket. I am pleased with the look. I am hoping the finish holds up better than the previous one (different brand).

          I have decided that these are nice enough to use inside this summer. The bench cushion fits wonderfully on my entertainment center below my TV, making additional impromptu seating if necessary. These are on my Home Depot Brexley leather club chair,Model # GH-120202B, keeping a barrier between the leather and exposed summer skin.

          This top looks like real granite but I am afraid if the surface is scratched or nicked it will lose its appeal. The backsplash has a chip along the edge, and the material beneath the surface of the psuedo-granite shows a glaring solid white. Had a color mixture been used throughout the solid surface, this might not be such a risk to install.

          This is one solid piece! I looked at the specifications and when I saw it weighed over 100 pounds I knew it would be. And that is without a vanity top. I wasn't sure how to get it upstairs at first but a repeating cardboard slide, and three people made it easier. I didn't seem to have as much trouble as others with alignment but some adjustment was called for. I like that it is on the taller side, most modern (and quality) vanities are.

          I had this installed 5 years ago, and I am still pleased. This requires virtually no maintenance, I clean it occasionally only out of a sense of duty, I believe I could go without ever cleaning it and it would be just fine. The shelves need wiping down sometimes but the walls seem to just repel dirt. I originally purchased it for looks alone, had I known then that the name Swan usually means lower quality, I probably would have chosen another brand, I am glad I didn't.

          The seat height for the brexley chair is listed (even though mine seems to be an inch shorter), but not for this.
           
          A flat-front face and full-overlay design give this 36 in. bathroom vanity in chocolate a sleek look with maximum storage capacity. One right-side vertical drawer and one lower full-width drawer are situated in full-extension glides, easily sliding for quick access to powder room essentials. A generous cupboard area behind double doors supplies ample room for bath linens or cleaning supplies. The rich chocolate exterior finish also coats the interior panels, gushing forth to cast a warm, welcoming ambience throughout your bathroom. This chocolate-finished Claxby vanity from the Home Decorators Collection is solidly constructed with beech wood to supply years of long-lasting use.
           

          The specifications list this at 106 pounds. Since it does not include countertop or sink, does it really weigh so much?

          The Mistos is priced at nearly 3 times the Alteo, making this an invalid statement. What is the reasoning?
