Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Glinda Water on/off are backwards
The on/off handles cannot be used correctly. They install so that when you try to turn on the cold water the handle hits the back of the sink and can only be used if installed backwards

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sacherjj Classy looking and good feel.
This is a very stylish faucet. Note to those that have not installed split style before, you need to also purchase the correct length pair of hoses to come up from the shutoffs. There are not attached as they are with a one piece 4" style.
I worried that the handle motion felt pretty loose. However, once installed and pressurized, I quite like it. The look is elegant and operation feels very solid.
It has about the same flow that I've seen in the high end faucets lately. Some complain, because it is less flow than older faucets. However, it is plenty to do all tasks you will a bathroom faucet. I don't mind the flow and free water savings. I think it is a good move for conservation with new products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sittinback As always...INSPECT!
Had to return first item due to blemish on spout. But the replacement was in excellent shape and installed fairly easily. Home Depot was VERY helpful during the return of the first item. If the 'looks' of this item appeal to you, you can't go wrong with the purchase. BUT do examine it closely before installation. The blemish on my first item was small/minor ...but in a location that you could not help but notice (thanks to my wife).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jack noisy and strange taste in the cold water flow
The water flow is very noisy even though the water pressure is turned way down. There is a strange chemical taste in the cold water that is not present in other cold water taps in the house. If this is in the hoses, not cool, nor is the watersaver attachment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Fun Modern sleek bird design. Polished chrome reflects the vanity top.
Out of the Box, pictured, it comes with all the major parts needed for installation. To be fair I have not completed installation as my home needs re-plumbing, no running water.
Design...Exciting. It reminds me of a design by an American Finnish Architect. The bird beak quality of the handles, long and thin, are also practical for someone with aging hands and limited strength. It's easier to put your torso into moving them.
Blending designs...Chrome Reflections in the set reflect the Vanity top and help integrate the existing designs. This is in a small room with too many conflicts already. The handle reflecting the
vanity is pictured.
Solid metal...Being a fan of industrial design, I like my metal fixtures weighty and sleek. The faucet
piece alone weighs over one pound. it has a thick brass pipe attachment.
The arched neck fountain is for my cats to drink from, hoping it isn't too easy for them to turn on. My first impression of this was to smile, Cat Fountain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phawk33 Excellent Quality + Easy to Install
Installation took about 2 hours per sink, including new drain plumbing and valves. Not bad for an amateur plumber.
Quality product. Works like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lady Extremely Useful Faucet
I was able to reuse my Water Supply Line Hoses so all I needed was the following items to install the Kohler Faucet: a Phillip Screw Driver, an Adjustable Wrench and a rag. I also needed to purchase a small roll of 1/2" Pipe tape for $.70 and 14 oz jar of Oatley's Plumber's Putty for $1.09, at Home Depot.
The step by step instructions show pictures to ensure you are installing it correctly. If you are installing this faucet onto a marble or stone countertop, it is advised to use a non petroleum non-staining plumber's putty. I installed mine onto a cast polymer sink and vanity top so I was able to use plain ole plumber's putty.
The faucet I replaced was a standard low spout which didn't allow me to do much other than wash my hands in the sink. With the raised spout I am able to add water to a small bucket and can even wash my hair in the sink now. I am very pleased with this faucet and as long as I own my home, Kohler guarantees me a lifetime warranty with the faucet. Did I mention how reasonable the price of this faucet is? I've paid more before and received less. I do recommend this faucet, especially if you like the idea of having some extra room under the spout.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RZPhyxit First timer plumbing project that was stopped by defective part
I purchased this as a Christmas gift renovation project, but waited to install it. I signed up for the January local Home Depot free faucet installation demonstration. I even watched multiple You Tube videos; one specific to the Alteo Kohler faucet! It was difficult access in the 23" cabinet with the sink and countertop already mounted. The RIGID brand multiple faucet tool used in the Home Depot demo was useless for the Kohler sized pieces. But determination and perseverance looked like I would still be successful.
That is, until I took out the hot water side handle. After inserting it through the counter top hole, the handle immediately broke off! I had already put in the faucet and cold water handle. Since this is an online order only, the sink is semi assembled and unusable until a new part can arrive. I can't just run back to the store for a replacement. Very disappointing. I did notice a similar complaint Nov 2015.
