We were pretty certain that something modern would be good, however practicality was also something to take into account. We both realized that we may love something today, but we also need to love it ten years from now. Another problem is that for some reason we decided to have three bathrooms in the house--great idea when you're designing but in retrospect a sun shower may have been a better idea. Deciding on one faucet is hard, but deciding on 5 (bath and sink total) is near impossible.
Here's how it turned out:
Bathroom 1 - guest bathroom with shower on the main floor:
Kraus round white vessel sink and Sheven bathroom faucet
Bathroom 2 - guest bathroom with bath shower combo:
GROHE Concetto Green Bathroom faucet (top) and shower tub set (bottom)
Master Bath with separate Bathtub and Shower:
Looking back on all of them side by side, I think I have a sort of semi-teutonic obsession with all things in the faucet world. While initially, I was in love with the Delta Touch Faucets after reading the hilarious reviews, which made them out to be something along the lines of Gizmo from Gremlins, whom you fed after midnight or a miniature old faithful. In the end, I think that the chosen faucets will be a great way to impose our stylistic ideas in a subtle way and give us some direction for the rest of the bathroom design.
