Which Shower/Bath Faucet did you use - are you happy with it?

Which shower/bath faucet did you use and are you happy with it? We have a traditional style house. We are considering the following brands

1) Rohl - but we have seen some negative reviews for the kitchen faucets. Anyone have this brand for their shower/faucet?

2) Toto

3) Danze

4) Grohe - we have grohe in the kitchen and works fine, but looks more modern than we wanted for the bathroom.

Also, are their other brands that you would suggest? We are looking for something traditional and that will stand the test of time. Thank you so much to gardenweb - I am so thankful for the wonderful people of this forum.

Have you looked at Hansgrohe? I am going to install a tub filler with hand held spray. This isn't a shower set up.

I am using the traditional looking one called Axor Montreux:
Photobucket

It will be a few weeks before I get the thing installed, as I am the slowest remodeler this side of the Mississippi.

Thank you, enduring. That looks really nice! We looked at hansgrohe, but didn't see this model.

Last night, I stayed up very late doing research and found the website below rating all of the different faucet brands. They rated grohe, hansgrohe and graff about the same.

Now I'm leaning towards graff, but I don't think the parts will be as easy to get as the hansgrohe or grohe brands. I will have to look at the model that you have shared. Thanks so much.

I had read that too and thought it was a great resource. The same Star site also has a great article on bathroom layout specs that was so helpful to me.

Best of luck to you. Keep everyone posted on your selection.

Grohe does have traditional-looking styles. I will be using "Geneva" in my new master bath. They also have several others. Go on the Grohe website and look at the category they call "authentic design". I have used Grohe before, and I have been happy with it. I have also used Hansgrohe, and I liked that, too.

We have fixtures from the Parma collection by Danze. We are happy with them.

We were going to try the Kohler Bancroft line, but thats a long story. And also not my fault because EngineerChic had a similar issue with the system. Nothing to do with fixture quality though.

We ended up with a Price Pfister Pasadena set for our bathroom sink, shower and tub hardware. the construction seemed sturdy and it had all the features I was looking for. We've been very happy with it, and the $1k we saved :-)

Thank you everyone. After reading everything and doing research, we ordered the Graff, Canterbury line for our shower. Our local plumbing store has excellent prices and service, and confirmed that they were a great line. They also had the rough in already in stock. I would highly recommend Excel Plumbing if you're in the San Francisco area.

Thank you GW!
