After all the sinks would not be very useful without them.
Originally I had chosen Moen’s Banbury because it had a relatively high arch (8.5 inches) and a high polished chrome finish. And the price was definitely right at $119 for both the valve and trim.
I really wanted something a little taller (9 inches) and simpler so I checked other Moen trims and found the “Icon”. And I remember our architect telling us to spend a little more money on those things we touch everyday.
I ordered 2 Icon trim kits ($214 each) plus 2 valve kits ($79 each) from Home Depot because it’s always easy to return items directly to the local store. In this case the trim and valves are sold separately.
I also ordered the toilet paper holder which arrived the day after I ordered it.
Do the cost of necessities shock you? (I’m talking about a toilet paper holder.)
