The sink, glass surfaces, and faucet were the only items of good quality. All other parts were thin/cheap, and the unit is not stable, especially if your walls aren't flat. Teh items came packed well, however, the instructional directions are HORRIBLE. We guessed through a lot of it. It does look nice when finished, but I am telling everyone not to lean against it! I was excited by the price when I found it, but I now see why. You are paying for the beautiful glass, nothing else. I fully anticipate having to replace the stand up unit in the future in case it gets bumped. I am sure we'll be able to continue using the vessel sink and glass surface if I can find a better method to hold it all up.

Have not had the opportunity to finish assembling yet, but be aware before purchasing this product that the term "instruction manual" would not be applicable. Upon opening the package, the single written sheet in the box instructs the purchaser to go to Kokol's website for their "instruction manual" - turns out their instruction manual is simply photos of the fixture with minimal description at best on the website. I also discovered in the hardward package I was missing the bolts to attach the chrome base legs to the main support section, and upon trying to call the Kokol's phone number given to remedy, I simply got voice mail, and couldn't speak to any live representative. I'm putting my sink in a garage bathroom - it is definately not a product I would recommend to anyone wanting to put a "nice" fixture in their home.
love the finished product. the overall look is very striking.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the wooden area looked brown but in reality it is black. that was no problem for us- we were planning on painting it black.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the glass is magnificent. truly 1/2 inch thick and the edges are finished beautifully.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? the information given was adequate. we had to wait to recieve the product to determine where the pipes needed to be placed. the instrudctions for installation are a joke. luckily for us our plumber is good at putting together puzzles
I was attracted to the "Italian" design of the whole Kokols product line BUT...the cheap materials and even missing small parts and impossible "instructions" spoil the whole experience. Anything saved on the value (which is good), and the contemporary design is wasted on all the negatives. Do not assume that this is a DIY project to install, unless you are very savvy with tools and materials. All of your talents will be challenged. Fair warning, now go ahead and see what happens! :)
I purchased this unit for our master bathroom, I received in 2 packages well packed in good condition. Went to the website, download the pdf, very easy to be installed by our plumber. The waterhose & plumbing will be exposed, I bought some aluminum sheet to cover the plumbing part, The set looks gorgeous. The set + my new hardwood flooring made my bathroom looks expensive & modern. I love the set.
Lack of no instructions, made a simple project time consuming. However after laying out, and creating a list of the items it made assemble simple and the design understandable.. Some of the plumbing pieces are of poor quality and were replaced. The item was well packaged and everything arrived safe. Used for a powder room and it does make a conversation piece. It is quite attractive, creates more space. and the wife loves it. Good value and design for the cost..
THE fixtures was not well assembled.I PURCHASED them from the hardware store.
