Which Faucet? Please vote!

We need to choose between these two faucets.

One is quite a bit cheaper than the other and we need two of then for a double vanity.

The bathroom is very transitional so either more modern or more classic should work.

Here's a pic of the vanity they will be going on.

Although the second one is more MY style, I think the first one has a more timeless appearance that would work well with your beautiful vanity and countertop.

#1 gets my vote. What about the shower? Will it match?

Another #1

#1 would look beautiful on your vanity.

I will be putting your #2 in my guest bath. They were in my masterbath and only a few months old when we renovated both bathrooms. I told my husband that we wouldn't "waste" them and I would put them in our guest bath. They're nice but there are so many others, including your #1, that are just stunning by comparison!

#1 is my vote too. The detail of the beading at the escutcheon is traditional and looks nice with your cabinet. The arch of the spout, on the other hand, has a more modern twist, in my opinion. I like the narrow "waist" of the handles too. The second picture has handles that may look a little club like, almost like a curling stone :)

#1 without question. It's beautiful. #2 is...ok, fine, but #1 is much nicer, IMO.

I hope #1 is the less expensive option, but I doubt it :-)

Number 1 is the more expensive, but given that everyone seems to prefer it I think it's worth it!

I was just going to vote for 2. We have them on our MB double vanity!

The 2nd one looks like Kohler Forte. We have those in our master and guest bathrooms.

Either will look nice with your vanity but personally prefer the smooth style of #2.

I vote for #2. I like the graceful lines. I am very surprised that #1 is much more expensive.

RE: Which Faucet? Please vote!

Either would be fine, but I like #1 better. You didn't say whether one or the other felt noticeably better to your hand. #1 looks a little more comfortable to me, but looks can be misleading. I usually try to figure out HOW much more I like one thing than another. Do I like it 25% more or 75% more? Is the cost difference in line with that? If I like it 75% more and it only costs 25% more, I consider it a deal! Of course, I'm good at rationalizing. I also think about things I touch multiple times a day and it's important that they feel "right" to me.
