Although the design is classic in appearance, the sink with the 8 inch center option, the two holes in the back of the sink for attaching the sink to the wall were at nine inches center. If the faucet hardware is installed you have 1/2 inch clearance to try to tighten the nut on the attachment bolts in the wall. If you do not install the faucet hardware before attaching the sink to the wall, it is virtually impossible to have the needed room to install the faucet hardware and attached the necessary water lines. Bad design.
We installed this pedestal set just over 10 years ago and have loved it. About 6 years after installation we started seeing crazing throughout the basin (not the pedestal). We never contacted Kohler because there is only a 1yr warranty. However, even with the crazing, the basin has been sturdy and has survived 4 children. I'm now looking to replace the basin because a vase was dropped into it and cracked it to the point of leaking. This is the first time anything dropped in it has ever cracked it. I think I got my money's worth the first time around!

The Memoirs Pedestal sink should not be considered for purchase. The Kohler one year
warranty is worthless for a product that should easily last 10-20 years. The quality of
workmanship and materials used in this product is really very questionable. Our Memoirs
sink basin developed a hairline crack in one of the circular band of rings where the ceramic
coating thins out. A couple of words of advice to avoid disappointment - keep your original receipt and don't buy the Kohler faucets.

We loved the sink's style. But spider cracks have steadily spread over the basin. Kohler should be embarrassed by the poor quality of this product. We contacted Kohler, expecting the company to replace the basin. They said there's just a one-year warranty on the sinks, including their finish. We have sinks and bathtubs in our house that are more than 50 years old and their finish is fine. We're going to replace the sink and renovate another bathroom. But we're not buying Kohler products because we don't trust their quality and the company doesn't stand behind its products. The company clearly has had a quality control issue with these sinks. Look at all the complaints. Kohler certainly should.
Advertised dimensions were not close to actual. Kohler needs to spend more money on QC than on their over-the-top advertising program. Naked women may sell showers but builders like me prefer accurate specs to models who aren't representative of reality.
Stylish, Nice Design
