Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lorijo1958 Looks great/some issues.
This laundry vanity looks great and is a huge improvement over our old standard wall mount laundry tub.
I had a plumber install it but we had to cut a large chunk out of the inner shelf and drawer to fit our existing wall plumbing. That's okay, but we lost the ability to store much in the cabinet. The plumbing hardware that came with the vanity was of below average quality, but the plumber had upgrades on his truck. The sink sprayer is "cheap" but works fine, so far. I am happy to have a better looking tub in my laundry room, but for the relatively higher price, I would expect better quality. You will need pumber's putty.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by swartz Nice for the price
We were pleasantly surprised to find this laundry tub with such style and storage at such a reasonable price. It works well for our purpose which was to have a nice looking utility sink we could wash our small dogs. The sprayer really comes in handy. I love the bottom drawer and storage under the sink for their shampoo and brushes.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by BarberiePirate Looks good
Bought this unit for the look, which is very attractive. Delivery was very quick. And the unit looks very good installed. I am concerned about long term durability, though: cabinet is MDF / particle board with a baked on finish: no wood veneer. I dinged one of the legs installing it and it took out a pretty good chip, but matched it pretty well with a marker to cover. The drawer seems extremely flimsy, but I actually had to take it out and modify the cabinet to install: unless your supply valves are at least 17 inches off the floor, you will have to either move them or modify the cabinet, I chose the latter and just reworked the drawer as a false front. The tub is extremely thin, does not look like it would take much to crack it. The faucet seems pretty decent, although the hand spray unit is completely plastic and cheap. Don't follow the faucet installation instructions: install the faucet to the tub and the supply lines to the faucet before you drop the tub in the cabinet as the depth of the sink makes it virtually impossible to tighten connections to the faucet in the cabinet. The unit does look very good, but we'll see about long term durability and utility.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bltewfus for the price can't beat it
it went into our pool bathroom. the legs on the vanity (making it raised off the ground) are great so all the wet kids and adults don't ruin the vanity from dripping onto the floor. we don't use the board and looks prettier without. it was the cheapest, complete set there is out there esp being a semi utility sink. it's not super deep but it works perfect for our pool bathroom (which is also right by the laundry room and garage). the assembly wasn't hard. there is little cabinet space in the vanity and the sprayer is cheap plastic but in time when that breaks we will replace it with a better one.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by pettylarseny A good all-in-one solution, with a few flaws
It's always a bit hard to tell how something is going to look/feel, construction-wise, when all you have to go on is a picture (or even several pictures) on a web site. Everyone already knows how a competent photographer can make even a fairly shoddy product look pretty darn good, given enough time and budget. That's why I don't tend to make larger purchases sight unseen over the Internet.
Fortunately, this was a laundry sink, not my master bath vanity, so it wasn't as critical. We looked around, and found that most of the sink-AND-vanity solutions out there required purchasing the vanity separately from all the hardware (faucets), etc. And while there were numerous options that were less expensive than this...that was only when you took the items individually. Taken together, this was the most economical choice.
So I wasn't expecting much in terms of sturdiness and quality. We were looking for a laundry sink, after all. Just something that worked. However, when it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at the solid feel of the cabinet. To start with, this is NOT a kit (at least, not in terms of the actual cabinetry). Anyone who's spent an entire Saturday on the floor of the guest room with an assortment of screwdrivers and wrenches after a trip to IKEA or something, wondering why in the heck they thought assembling their own furniture would be a good idea, will love the fact that this comes pre-assembled (for the most part). But that does mean that the vanity comes in a box large enough for your children to play in (might be a plus for some people!). Be forewarned if you're expecting to get it into a tight spot.
The wood is not expensive-looking, but the finish is of reasonably good quality and the sink itself is quite nice. It's a polished, heavy acrylic surface which looks like you'd have to take a Dremel to it in order to scratch or mar it. The sink itself is not installed into the cabinet upon delivery, and none of the plumbing fixtures are attached to the sink itself. So there IS still SOME assembly required - obviously, since it must be hooked up to household plumbing. If you're not comfortable hooking things like this up, I'd recommend hiring a qualified plumber, especially if you don't already have a set of hot and cold valves in the right place already. If you don't, you'll need a plumber to run (or tap into) some lines and install valves for you.
This was our situation, so we had a plumber install the plumbing. However, I dry-fit it prior to his arrival, to make sure everything was there, and I can tell you it was pretty straightforward. If you're fortunate enough to have valves available to you without calling a plumber, this can be installed by the end-user pretty easily.
EXCEPT - the back side of the cabinet is a solid piece of wood, meaning that you will need to cut a hole in the cabinet in order to allow the drain pipe to exit. Again, where you do this will depend upon your particular plumbing situation, but one word of caution I can offer here - which seems like the only major design flaw of the unit - is that the sink basin itself sits so low within the vanity that in order to allow vertical space for the P-trap underneath the bottom of the sink, our plumber had to actually cut into the portion of the back which extended down into the area for the bottom shelf (see the picture of the bottom shelf under the cabinet). This seems like bad design to me: it doesn't actually impede the opening and closing of the drawer itself, since the drawer doesn't actually extend all the way to the back wall of the vanity, but it means the P-trap actually slightly hangs into the space of the drawer. I imagine I'll have to be somewhat careful about what I try to cram into the drawer, since now it can only be so high, maximum.
Additionally, such surgery, while it might not be something that some people would find difficult to do, might be enough to put other people off buying this unit. You will need the proper tools - I'd guess at minimum a Sawzall if you just want a hole, or perhaps some fancier saws if you want to do a cleaner, more precision cut. That's where this vanity stopped being user-friendly.
One last thing I'll say is that the detached spray-head is VERY cheap-looking. It's made of white plastic throughout (yet, strangely, NOT the exact shade of white of the basin, making it look mis-matched), and - worse - the supply line attached to it is of a semi-rigid nature, which will almost guarantee you an unpleasant yanking experience every time you try to use it. After some thought, I went back up to Home Depot and purchased a sturdier, chromed spray head which came with a flexible hose. Now, the spray head matched the finish of the nice faucet that came with the vanity (instead of NOT matching the color of the basin), and it's been a pleasure to use.
In the end, we got the thing up and running without TOO much trouble, and it now looks good and functions quite well. After all, isn't that what you want when all's said and done? Recommended, with the exceptions above.
