Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYGurl Beautiful set - but - not for a busy house!
STUNNING - my first thoughts upon opening up the beautiful blue box, that fell oh so close to that famous, "Tiffany Blue". The box itself, begs to be opened, as soon as you feel the weight of it in your hands.
The box is opened, and inside lies, three little protective bags. It is reminiscent of opening up, a finely made purse. It too sits in it's dust bag waiting for "Ooo's and Ahhh's", upon it's very first glance, by it's new owner.
I almost felt like it was going to be too special for my tastes. I was wrong. As I opened up, each little bag, inside rested a fine piece of craftsmanship. The weight of each piece was and is what anybody will notice. Each piece, oozes exactly how much care and devotion, a meticulous eye looked for, in the styling of this set. Clean lines, faucet handles that fit into the hand nicely, no rough edges that feel uncomfortable, to ones hands. Even the pop up stopper, was made with attention to detail. Solid metal, with a screw on top, shows that, no detail went unnoticed.
Install was as straight forward, as any faucet set, that I have done in the past. This was however my first three piece set, and it did take some help of a second pair of hands, to help hold the parts straight. When installing the drain however, with this set, there was no putty needed, no mess,,,that I really liked.
BecauseThe faucet set is in three pieces, it also allows you to install it in a straight line, or angled, depending on your sink model. Since mine is a pedestal sink, that has a curved back, I decided to install the handles at a slight angle.
It took about twenty minuets to have it up and running, and then I noticed it,,,fingerprints. They covered the faucet front to back, and back to front. They were totally obvious, standing out like only finger prints can, on such a highly polished finish.
It really is, absolutely beautiful. However, I know now that for the rest of my days, I will removing any and all, signs of use, from this set. This is a high end, wonderfully made set. It is not, for a busy family. It is most definitely suited best, for a bathroom, that will get little use, from little hands. It certainly is pretty enough, and well made enough, for me to get over knowing that, a quick polish here and there, is certainly WELL worth my time, because to me, it's just so pretty that, it deserves to be well maintained.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYQueenSWFL Upscale hotel quality faucet set
We moved into a house last year that was 30+ years old. Our pool bathroom appeared to be just as old with an outdated green sink and toilet. We decided to remodel in a way that would bring our home into the 21st Century while making it stylish, and classy. We selected the Trave 8 in. Widespread 2-Handle Bathroom Faucet in Polished Chrome and it is beautiful. It's heavy duty, and looks like the faucets you see in nice upscale hotel bathrooms. The faucets were very easy to install, came with easy instructions, and required minimal tools (simple everyday tools that are in your tool box).
I am so proud of my new bathroom upgrade. This faucet set is well-constructed, classy, and modern. I highly recommend this set for bathroom upgrades. You won't regret this selection. (See the before and after photos)
Note: Other sink accessories were not included with the faucet set. Installation took about 3 hours total (to unhook the water lines, take down old sink, install new sink, and install new faucets).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlisoninTX Impressive, modern, high-end faucet
I'm familiar with the Speakman brand from showers in high-end luxury hotels...but I had never seen faucets from them so was eager to try this one out. I couldn't be more impressed. The faucet is stylishly and securely packaged, shipped in that padded box inside of a separate shipping box...no risk of the perfect finish being damaged in transit. It's a beautiful mirror chrome and it's weighty - feels very high end. Even the movement of the faucet handles feels smooth but substantial - a luxurious addition to any bathroom.

This faucet is very high quality and modern looking. We just finished installing it in our spare bath.We updated the vanity and top and used an undermount sink with this faucet. Had to drill the holes in the counter top because of this 8" widespead faucet, but that wasn't a problem.It looks very nice and I think we will be very pleased for many years with the brass construction(hopefully saving from leaky faucets down the road).

Beautiful design with polished chrome. It was also very easy to install with the good instruction material that came with it. It improved the looks of the bathroom and looks very sturdy. It is also heavy duty and well-constructed. Had no problems after 2 months of use

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oceanside High quality and elegant design is great for any bathroom
I really like the look of this set. It's elegant, modern and stylish and really added to the look of my bathroom sink.
The handles operate easily and the water flow is excellent.
I had a little trouble with the installation, but that is just me.
But the results were outstanding and this faucet delivers a nice upgraded look to any bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JunC Simple yet beautiful modern look.
This faucet is simple yet beautiful modern look. Chrome also gives a additional beauty to this product. It came with a simple yet sturdy box to protect its contents. and main part for the faucet was separately wrapped in nice cloth bag. It simply shows that how much they care in their product.
Taking my old part out was the most hard part of installing this unit. nothing complicated. work itself was pretty standard except one thing. My previous faucet in my washroom is little close to the wall or I should say wall mirror. so when I had to install a portion to stop the water flow, I had to bend a handle a little. (it was a simple solution but it took me additional 30 minutes to figure this out.)
After its installation, it is all worth the effort.
it is simply gorgeous and add modern style to the wash room.
Only one issue is that it has a flat top. so water that dropped on the top will stay there and it will be eventually water mark. so you will have to wipe it once in a while to keep this beauty shine.
But hey beauty takes effort to keep it that way. :)
