We are remodeling our master bathroom. We have bought 2 vessel sinks, we already have an oval soaking tub (keeping it), and a separate shower stall. I am having an incredibly hard time with the faucets! I need matching vessel faucets (vessel rim is 6" above the countertop), roman tub filler with diverter and handspray, and basic shower head set (preferably with temp and volume control). The frustration is finding a company that makes all of these things in the same suite to match! Also, I'm not looking for something ultra-modern (transitional or traditional is best). Also, I don't know squat about various manufacturers' reputations. What brand is best to look for? How bad does it look to mix and match suites within a manufacturer? I keep finding vessel faucets that have NO matching pieces......(frustrated scream here). Any help appreciated -- you guys were really on target about the Toto toilets we bought a few months ago.:confused:

I'm partial to grohe, but then some people think I'm nuts.

If the vessel sink faucets do not have matching trim for the other fixtures, avoid them because they are probably some offshoot line that will be abandoned someday. The good manufacturers, and there are too many to name them all, make a full line of faucets.
