Although the picture of this product doesn't quite depict its actual appearance, this sink and faucet combo is absolutely gorgeous. I thought it was a red glass translucent sink/faucet, when in fact, it has a metallic foil look with dark flecks. The color is a gradient of very deep red at the rim, to a pinkish gold at the drain. The outside is painted black. I repainted the room a soft, shimmery yellow gold on the upper walls, with vivid ruby red at the bottom, divided by a glossy black chair rail. A Black Galaxy granite countertop, some great artwork, and a red/gold mosaic lamp complete this elegant room. The installation of this type of sink (we purchased one for each of our three baths) is a breeze. Much, much easier than a standard sink/faucet. My husband (who is a lawyer, not a plumber) had the first installed within a half hour, and each one thereafter was even more readily installed. In our house, the water pressure is very high, so we have to be careful not to turn the faucet on all the way. It doesn't actually go over the sides, but it creates a lot of splash. We just don't turn it on all the way. The sink is not fixed in place with any adhesives, relying on just a nut under the counter to hold it. This results in a small amount of movement which is unsettling at first, but we've quickly become inured to it. This is an excellent bargain, and a beautiful product! If you're interested in having a modern, elegant bathroom in your home, you cannot do better than to purchase the vessel sink/faucet combos available on this website!
