We just recieved this vanity and for the price, I had no idea how well built and beautiful this piece would be. We renovated our 2nd bath and was looking for a base cabinet (or 2 put together) and would find a solid surface countertop from a remnant slab to keep our costs down. It turned out that the cabinets would be anywhere from $500-$1000 for a decent cabinet and anywhere from $800-$1200 for the countertop. This vanity was very well priced (vanity, countertops and sinks) and weights about 400 lbs. The shipping will be more than the standard $2.95 and it took 3 guys to get it to our 2nd bathroom. It was packaged very securely as the moving company had to turn the box end over end just to get it upstairs and maneuver it in place and when the packaging came off, it was perfectly fine. What the pictures don't show well is the detail on the countertop edging (ogee?), the doors in front of the sink are rounded to match the rounded bump out of the counter at the sinks, and the spread of the sink holes. You'll need a widespread faucet (8"). Also, the back of the cabinet behind the doors is the only opening for the plumbing and the rough in will need to be 14 1/2" in from the end of the cabinet to the edge of the opening and 16" high to reach the bottom edge of the opening. We had to have a plummer come out and reposition our water supply and drain to accomodate the opening. Overall, you won't be disappointed. For the quality, storage, construction, and travertine, this is a great deal.

I would not recommend this vanity at all. The color does not match the picture. Silkroad Exclusives will tell you it is because your monitor is not displaying the color properly. What a joke! I bought 2 different vanities in the same color and they don't match. Customer service is horrible with Silkroad Exclusives. I also think that the drawer guides are junk. The top is also very thin and looks like a reject. Do not buy!!!
I did a lot of research and deliberating before finally choosing this item. I'm very happy with my purchase. This vanity is a very high quality piece of furniture, made of solid hardwood and a thick sturdy, yet beautiful travertine top. When the package arrived I was at home waiting for it, since the delivery service called the day before and gave me a time frame. Some other reviews indicated that white glove service came with the delivery, however mine was only front door service and the driver indicated that I was lucky that he brought it inside as with these items they usually just drop them in the drive way. It was pouring rain that day, and I was the only one home, so I was lucky he brought it in, this item with it's substantial packaging weighs about 430lbs and I would not have been able to get it up the steps by myself. The drawers are a little stiff when opening and closing, but the tracks seem sturdy and well put together. Others mentioned that the item's length is not as stated in the title, which is true. My space for this was exactly 72 inches. This item is 72 1/2 inches. I had to cut drywall out to get the item in place. Also the openings for the plumbing are narrow and irregular, so I had to move plumbing as well, or damage the back of the unit, and for what I spent, I had no desire to do that. To sum it up, this is a beautiful piece of well made furniture and you won't be disappointed, provided you make the necessary preparations.

This is our second purchase of a silk road vanity, our first was the 40" of this same model. Lots of storage, great height and the travertine seemed like it had a better sealer than our first one. I did take the extra step and made sure to put a good quality sealer on it this time since our old travertine ended up having a couple water marks that never came out. Drawers are not full extension, but come pretty close. They can be a little sticky, but come free with use. Can't wait to start using it.
I love my new travertine top wood vanity. I was very hesitant to order something like this online, but read one review which was very positive. This review and the color, dimensions, and wood color sealed the deal. I am so pleased with my new bathroom and the vanity is just lovely!
