what ever floats your boat is what you should get.
looks and function are what you are looking for?

I'm a moen guy for 40 years-get the higher end lines not the cheaper stuff.
I was a plumber once.

I’ve had good luck with Moen & Kohler. Not from a big box store though.

Same here. The big box stores sell a lower grade of each. We have Kohler and all has been well for 16 years so far.

Stay away from delta, crap products IMO. Kohler or Moen are much better options.

Kolher over engineers stuff they also change designs constantly, so when buying replacement parts years down the line its hard to find correct part. Delta and Moen are basically the same quality both have High and low end stuff. Both have great customer service. Kolher has higher end high end stuff. So it depends what you spend and what your looking for. The Basic Delta faucet " Delta 100 " has been copied by numerous companies and still uses the same springs and washers from 30-40 years ago. I do prefer Moen in general. But in my house I use mostly Kolher as its high end and I service them. I have plumber friends and they mock stuff.

This thread came at the perfect time. We are closing in a section of our porch off the master bedroom to add a master bath. I`ve been looking at different bath fixture brands trying to decide which is better than the other.

Newport Brass or Waterworks for a master.

Moen. I had an issue with a very old Moen bath faucet, it needed a new part. Reached out to Moen to order part, faucet was so old they didn't carry the part anymore. They ended up sending me a brand new faucet that was similar to my old. No receipt, didn't have to send the old one back. I was shocked.

I would ask a trusted plumber. I would also stick with a brand/style that allows for parts replacement without having to tear the walls apart.
