Ramus Single Hole Vessel Bathroom Faucet - Includes Metal Pop-Up Drain
Looked great at first, but....
The Ramus faucet is a lovely design which functions well, but after less than a year of light use (it's installed in a guest 1/2 bath), the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is affected. The top of the faucet has developed white spots that seem to be under the finish, which is frankly ugly. We use plain water and diluted vinegar for cleaning, so the problem hasn't been caused by harsh agents. The other finishes may hold up better, but the ORB is disappointing.
On a side note, if you are trying to coordinate oil rubbed bronzes, the Ramus' ORB is a lightish brown color when compared to other makers' ORBs. This wasn't a concern for us because we weren't trying to match anything else.

I recently ordered three of these faucets after remodeling due to Hurricane Isaac. They were the exact style I was searching for and the price was unbeatable. They made a great change in the appearance of the bathrooms. My husband and I are amateurs with home improvements and we installed the faucet, pop up, and vessel ring with ease and no complications.

Ungly duckling to beautiful swan
This beautiful faucett together with a vessel sink and a carrera marble top has transformed our "ugly duckling" bathroom into a show piece. The faucett functions perfectly and adds the touch of class that we have been desiring for so long. One would never believe that this is the same room as before...and by clever painting we were able to not only keep the previously outdated looking olive green tile but find a combination whereby the tile enhances the overall beauty of the room. The remodel also included replacement of the toilet and light fixture and repainting of vanity with change to satin nickel pulls and hinges...we are absolutely please from all aspects.

This purchase replaced another non-functioning vessel faucet.
Receipt of the product after placing the order was completed in a matter of days.
Instructions were clear and concise.
Installation took approximately 10 minutes.
I am extremely please with the quality of the product. Reccomend it to anyone considering a vessel faucet.
Would order other products from this company.

Finish peels off
The bronze finish on our brand new kraus faucet is peeling off and now we have an unsightly patch of a different color on the top of the faucet! The finish is also peeling off of the sink stopper. The patch on the faucet is lighter than the bronze. The patch on the stopper is darker. Both need to be replaced after only less than 3 months of use. No harsh chemicals were ever used for cleaning--only Windex and vinegar.

Great looking faucet
I'm so glad I purchased this Kraus faucet! It really makes a statement with our vessel sink. It is quality all the way down to the packaging and faucetdirect got it to me in a couple days! I will definitely use them to replace any future faucets in my house.

Elegant look. Great Buy!
Style and look matched with my hanging vanity from wyndham. I didnt know Krauss is making great product like this. Easy to install, maybe took abt 30mins for 2 sinks. One thing that bothers me is the watermarks after using it. I guess it's because I got the chrome one, but I can easily wipe it off, so it's not a big deal.
I would not want to recommend this, only because I want to be the only person to have this product. :). Other than that, buy it, because you'll like it!

Nice price and quality
I was concerned about the quality of this product, since the price was so good, but once it arrived I discovered it also was quality made. The oil rubbed bronze finish is very pretty, but it does have a metallice sheen to it. This faucet was easy for my husband to install, and has nice water flow. It looks and functions great with our vessel sink, and we are very happy with this faucet.

Purchased two of these faucets for my new stainless steel vessel sinks and they matched perfectly. I was surprised at how heavy they were when I took them out of the box. I had them installed by a professional plumber and he commented on how easy they were to install and the good quality. The pop up drain works great too. I absolutely love them!
