When my bathroom remodel was completed I realized my faucet interfered with the opening of my beautiful mirrored medicine cabinet. It was too tall and if anyone ever snooped I knew they would smash into the tall faucet and damage would ensue. I'd spent a lot of money on that faucet and was really disappointed that I'd have to find a lower profile tap. I found this one and now I have to say I like it better than my original more costly model!! The original had a handle over the tap so you always leave water spots when turning it off and that was going to drive me mad. This Vigo Serra has a side handle so the tap stays clean also I think it's easier to figure out the hot and cold. This Vigo feels just as substantial as the one that cost $50 more, feels like quality, I love it.

This was a good purchase. The faucet does not leak or drip. I was particularly proud because I installed it myself. It wasn't that hard. The faucet feels a lot more superior than the one it replaced in many ways. It runs smoothly, I did not realize that water could flow more evenly. The last one the water poured out like it would in a brook, clumpy. This is is much stronger and doing little things like washing my hands or filling up a cup take a shorter amount of time. Not that this was anything that was hurting my life, but when you realize that there is a difference it can make life easier. It's one less thing to worry about and that is why I am happy with it. It works better than I had hoped.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate, but it seems more shiny in person.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. When I took it out of the box I knew it was well made. It is solid through-out.
As usual, Overstock shipped very fast. These faucets are heavy and seem to be good quality. Installation was a breeze BUT I was hard pressed to find a drain that works with 'em. They do not have a pop up drain slot in them so needed to find a push down that was not made for a vessel sink as mine are under mount and vented. I finally found some after much searching and they work fine. The only other issue I have noticed are they are loud with the water running even at half volume. I believe this is probably a mixing valve in the guts of the thing and not willing to dismantle to fix. Over all a good product and they look great against my self made concrete counter tops.
I had a hard time finding a faucet for our bar sink. It couldn't be too tall, but had to have a decent spout length, and of course it had to look great! This faucet fit all of our requirements. It is a heavy-duty product that performs expertly with a one-handed lever. We are very satisfied.
