I LOVE this sink! We were replacing a crummy thing and I wanted a wide ceramic sink. We had to cut out a little of the bottom to fit our drain pipe, but that would not be true for everyone. One of the hanging brackets didn't work, but the plumber screwed the vanity through the back board into 2 wall studs, so that was fine. My husband painted it a high-gloss white (before installation). We bought a pull -down kitchen faucet, which looks fantastic, although the sink is not really deep enough for hair-washing. I don 't miss the counter space because the sink is flat enough to sort of using it as a counter when the water isn 't running (say, for a bottle of nail polish or remover , or a jar of moisturizer). It 's so big, at Thanksgiving I could use it to polish silver while the kitchen sink was monopolized by food preparation. Every time I brush my teeth or wash my hands, it feels like Christmas morning!
