Just curious how reliable or not so reliable are those designer line brand faucets/fixtures.
Went shopping for bathroom stuff and came across alot of ~off brands~ I was not used to seeing.

Not sure how fashion vs function plays out in these .

Brands life Rohl, Fima, KWC, etc.

Call me old school but when I shop for faucets, I look at Moen, Kohler, Chicago to see if any of the designs fit the bill 1st.

Dornbracht, which I know is quite popular in the architectural world.

Are there designer brands to avoid and are these some ~deeesigner~ brands that are okay to consider that would be okay from either a reliability standpoint if not from a post service/repair standpoint.
