The material of the vanity impacts the price also - acrylic or Vitreous China.  The latter is a better quality and has a higher price.

Reason I ask is that you can often have them fitted inside the tap itself as mentioned by someone on previous page. But my main idea was that you could potentially partly close off the taps under the sink to reduce flow to suit. Assuming it has them anyway, it should do really. All of my vanities have them.

So we looked at a few on the weekend...



The Greenhome one is just cheap and nasty, it looks OK but when you get up close you can see it's very cheaply made.



The recessed-handle drawer ones, also cheap because they just rout a groove out of the door material, are all a pain to deal with when they have soft-close drawers because the initial pull to overcome the self-closing mechanism resistance is quite strong, so you have to dig your finger(nails) into the handle area to yank them out. With the standard handle it's just an automatic tug on the handle to open while with the recessed handles it's a conscious stop, grip, and pull to open it.



In the end we went with this one, although that's the 750 in the photo not the 900 so the doors and drawers are wider. Plywood not MDF, sprayed lacquer not laminated (a condition from Mrs.Neb), and proper handles. The only thing that isn't quite as we wanted is the curved splash-prone basin, but everything else is just right.
