    I would think that the front is hot (ie the more you pull it towards you the hotter it gets).

    @daybyday:  Front is definitely cold.

    Does he also wrap new toilet paper under the roll when he changes it?!?! Anarchist. Lol 😉

    I voted front for cold but honestly both my parents and In laws have this type of sink and I can’t for the life of me remember how theirs are, it confuses the hell out of me haha.

    I would think the water automatically comes out cold and as you pull the lever towards you the water heats up.

    I would say front is cold.  But the more I thought about it, I kept changing my mind lol.

    I would assume the front is cold, but you can do it eitherway and people will just get used to it.

    I voted cold for front… think about it- if you have a very young child who can reach the faucet, they’re more likely to pull it towards them than push it away from them.  If pulling it forward results in cold water, not hot, then the child will be less likely to get burned.  I probably put WAYYYY too much thought into my answer, but that’s just the first thing that came to mind.

    I say that front should be hot and back should be cold.

    @daybyday:  “My husband thinks that if you were to look at the control head-on (from the side), left/front is hot, as hot is always on the left in the States”

    That was exactly my thinking.

    @daybyday:  I voted front hot… Because I thought about it the same way your husband explained it – left= front= hot… But the explanation about kids that a PP gave is a great argument for cold in the front
