My overall impression is that this is a well built, solid piece. It came very well crated and is quite heavy. The doors have soft close hinges, and even though the photos on this site did not show it, I was aware that the apron panels below the sinks flip down to reveal a small shelf. I did fnd two small flaws in the marble top where the surface was dull - not finished to a high polish. We also had some difficulty installing the faucets. There are two tiny braided steel hoses which are the connections from the faucet to the handles. Their tiny size means that everything needs to align perfectly beneath the top - which of course, it did not. We eventually got it to work, but it was extremely difficult. Do yourself a huge favor and install the faucets before you place the counter - even though you will have to be extra careful when you flip the top. Otherwise you are working on your back in a sliver of space between the rear of the bowl and the cabinet. I should also mention that the color is near black - it does not have brown or espresso tones. Overall we are happy with the vanity and it looks really nice in our newly renovated bath.
I was extremely hesitant of purchasing such a large item online. The nice thing about this vanity is that everything was included. The color of the wooden pieces are really very pretty and the marble counter top is really really nice. This item comes in a huge freight box and very well packaged. We had a few scratches on the backsplash and I will say, I have never dealt with a company's customer service quite like Overstock.com. They are absolutely FABULOUS!!! I will definitely order from Overstock.com again and again. I will say the only downfall to this particular vanity is that we are still trying to get the drawers to soft close. This may be "user" error. The other thing is that any faucet has been a little difficult trying to match the handles. They say they are brushed nickel; however, when looking at brushed nickel faucets, they look more yellowish instead of whitish. I may try to go with stainless steel, if I can find it. Overall though, I am more than satisfied and I would highly recommend this piece. :)
First things first: this vanity comes with a countertop made of 3/4" thick standard glass with integrated bowl. There is only one 1-1/2" hole for the faucet and no overflow valve in the bowls. The drain holes require the use of their chrome push-button style plug- so you will NOT be able to use the drain, stopper, and fittings that come with the faucet you purchase. The hardware on the vanity is stainless steel, but the stopper for the sink bowls is high-polish chrome- kind of odd. I wish that I could have picked a different finish for at least the stopper. The inside of the vanity comes with two solid shelves, but they are completely impractical to even use, because your sink plumbing is going to go right where the shelf needs to go... so- what to do with the shelves? There are no other shelf bracket holes to install the shelf higher or lower, so if you wanted to use them, you'd have to drill the holes yourself. The back of the vanity is solid wood- not fiberboard, not pressed board- it's solid. Be sure to only have your plumbing roughed in so that you can have nice, pretty holes cut for the vanity- otherwise, you'll be cutting out huge chunks of solid wood- that you'll be able to see, even with the cabinet doors closed (they're glass doors, remember?). The vanity stands up off the floor by about 7 or 8" on chrome feet. You WILL see the floor underneath, and no store bought toe-kick is going to be high enough to hide what's under. Be sure your flooring goes to the wall and is in good condition. You will need to use clear silicone caulking on the glass countertop between the wood framing. The countertop sits on top of the vanity and does not add any width, since it is nested between the side framing. There is about a 1/8" gap on either side that is a water trap, if you don't caulk it. Onto the mirror... the mirror and its frame are the same size as the vanity. For some reason though, they only provide 2 screws to hang it up with! This is a great, big, heavy mirror. It should not be hung without securing to studs. Do yourself a favor and countersink some screws into the studs and plug the holes with wood plugs or filler. The shelf that attaches to the bottom of the mirror sticks out so far that you would have to hang the mirror at least a foot higher than your vanity countertop to be able to use it, because the faucet heads would not be accessible otherwise. We are choosing not to use it, because it would make the mirror too high for our children to see into. The drawers are very small, but they do open all the way. They are only about 12"x12"x4" or so. They are not long enough for me to hold any of the drawer organizers that we have.. maybe I'll find some- bathroom drawers really can't go without at least a liner of some kind that can be wipes clean. The cabinet doors have a soft closing hinge. You'll have to unscrew the hardware a bit to get the protective wrap off of them. Overall? Everyone who has seen it remarks how beautiful it is. It is one of a kind and super pretty. I wish the countertop was a resin material instead of glass, and I wish I had known the stopper was going to be chrome. It looks silly to have a brushed nickel faucet with a chrome stopper, IMO. Overstock was very helpful in answering my questions about the product and I've included all the information we obtained from them and also discovered on our own in hopes that it helps others in determining if this product is right for them.
