One more thing I'll add. If money is no object, I would say for faucets go with the German made line of Grohe. (the normal lines are not made in Germany like they all used to be). I live near the ocean in Florida and metal finishes do not last here. I wish they made solid stainless steel faucets or solid bronze (not plated at all). Why don't any faucet companies make solid stainless steel or solid bronze faucets? With ceramic catridges and that, they would last forever. I know you can buy commercial grade pool pumps that are made of solid bronze but are there any kitchen or bathroom faucets like that? The quality nickel or chrome finishes still only last 12 years here.
