How to position bath vessel sink and faucet on vanity top - any guidelines?

Hi,

I got a rectangular vessel sink (19" x 11.5" x 5" H) and a faucet (both Kraus).
I'm not sure where to position the vessel sink on the vanity top. How far in from the front does one position the sink? Are there any guidelines?

Also, where should the faucet be palced? should the water stream hit the center of the drain?

I like to install the faucet first and turn it on to see where the water lands. Since water pressure isn't standard it might help to test it first.

That makes sense. How do you figure where to place the faucet?

Is there an acceptable range for the sink? Trying it out I couldn't decide where it should go. It didn't seem to matter all that much.

I'm no professional, there may be some standard that I don't know about. For me, I like about 1/2 inch of space behind the faucet exposed, and that is only because if I get to close I have trouble with the plumbing underneath.

As far as where the water hits, I've never known it to matter, but I've never seen one of those sinks pumping out a lot of water where it would matter.
