          I purchased and installed 2 months ago. I kept my original packaging and receipt due to the problems other reviewers had with these, but so far the bright, white light they are providing in a bathroom fixture is still fine. I had purchased a 45w daylight bulb, equal to 225 watt incandescent over 2 years ago that just burned out yesterday, the only problem with the higher wattage is it is about 8 inches long and sticks out beyond most fixtures. I am hoping these will last as long, I will purchase another pack of these to replace the burned out super high watt one. I would probably also consider LED if the price wasn't so prohibitive.

          The very masculine look of most of this chunky faucet is offset by the graceful curve of the spout. The look paired with a vessel sink can make your whole bathroom. The flat ribbon of water tumbling into the sink is quiet and forceful enough. Updating your bathroom couldn't be much easier, add other complimentary oil-rubbed bronze fixtures like towel bars etc. It is pretty costly but the return on investment maximized.

          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.
