Bathroom faucets-big chain home stores vs "plumbing" supplier

7 years ago
I am getting ready to begin a remodel project on our Master Bathroom with a great remodeling company. As I look at possible sink faucets and showerheads, I'm wondering if there is a benefit to paying extra at a fancy "plumbing" store. Specifically, I have looked at Delta's Victorian faucet line in Oil-rubbed bronze. It seems places like Lowe's sell my model for around $150 less than the same model number at the fancy store. I know the fancy store sales people like to say that the big stores sell an inferior product. But if the model number is EXACTLY the same, is there really a difference? I don't want to put all this money into a remodel project and then put in lower quality faucets, but if there truly is no difference I'd sure like to save some money. Thoughts????
