Designers Fountain 6453-CH Reviews
Rated 1 out of
worst junk ever!!!!!!This is the worst quality I have come across in lighting and I do a lot of lighting. The glass globes will break if you try to tighten them as they are so thin and the frosted part is put on like a kindergartner painted it on. I had 16 globes - every one of them broke - unbelievable how cheap this product is. They will send replacement glass but same cheap quality. Don't even bother with this product.

JunkThe glass globes do not hang straight and all point downward at slightly different angles, but after I had the fixtures installed, the chrome started flaking off in big chunks. After just 2 weeks, I could see multiple places where the chrome was starting to come off in other places as well. I'm returning for something of better quality. I would not recommend this fixtures.

Very Nice!I ordered this light fixture for a remodel of my bathroom. It is absolutely beautiful. The glass bulb covers are frosted with a little band of clear glass on the edge. Stunning! The chrome looks high quality also. My contractor even commented on how nice it looked.

Very niceThe quality/appearance of this item is very nice and it was easy enough to install.
I ordered three items in total. Another item arrived with a small chip in the glass. The customer service was excellent -- sent a replacement part right away. I would definitely buy here again and would recommend it to friends.
(By contrast, I ordered other items from a big box store. I could not return the items at the location nearby; returned them via mail and am STILL waiting on credit. Not happy with them...)

Is there is recommended standard height to place a fixture above a counter or sink?
A. Thank you for contacting us about the Designers Fountain 6453-CH. There is no standard height for mounting. Many factors can be considered. Usually the light is placed above the mirror, but depending on how hight the mirror goes you may effect how high the lights themselves should be. In general, you want the light comfortably above the sink so that someone standing in front of the mirror will not have the lights obstruct their view when standing straight up. So at least 6 plus feet above the floor. Hope this info helps!
Can this fixture be used upward?
A. The Designers Fountain 6453-CH is specified for use as up or down lighting.
