Rated 4 out of 5Â by EndsoftheEarth Great product for the price
Yes, this vanity is made of pressboard and laminates; that's what you get in this price range. If you want solid wood, expect to pay several hundred dollars more.
With that out of the way, I am pleased with this cabinet. The recessed kick board is a nice styling touch, and the adjustable hinges are an unexpected bonus. (I actually didn't have to touch them; the doors aligned perfectly right out of the box.)
One installation tip: Insert the bottom shelf from the open back before sliding the vanity into its final position.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Robg very shoddy construction
I bought this unit for a third floor and rarely used bathroom. It was cheap and looked reasonable. After buying it I now know the reason Home Depot displays this unit high up on the shelf is because they donât want you to touch it for fear of having the buyer see how flimsy it is. The front with its preinstalled doors is OK for such a cheap unit, but the sides are just particle board covered with plastic sheet. The unit has five problems that every buyer should evaluate as part of the buy/no buy decision.
First, the corners are attached with thin plastic brackets stapled into the particle board. One flimsy staple per side. The four sides actually swayed in the wind on my deck. Iâd really think about some reinforcements here.
Second, the two six inch boards which form the back of the unit are both flush with the sides. So if you want to make cutouts for your baseboards you must remove the staple on the bottom plastic corner bracketsâpretty easy. You can even use an office staple remover for this task. Then pull the back board out and the two pegs per side will also come out easily since they are not glued. Have predrilled holes in about 4 inches so place it in these inner holes. Put glue on the pegs and screw in the plastic corner brackets or, better yet, replace them with steel angle brackets. Then you can make your baseboard cutouts. Take care to put masking tape down where you cut or the particle board will splinter.
Third, you are instructed to glue the sink top down with silicone. I put a bead along the top of all four sides. This would have worked well if all four sides were the same height but they were notâthe sides were higher. Thus only the two sides are actually fastened the other two have an uncompressed bead of silicon. I needed to run a second bead from underneath.
Fourth, the bottom shelf can only be installed from the back after the unit is installed to the wall. This is difficult. Actually, impossible when the drain and plumbing stops are mounted on the floor. If you want to push the shelf in from the front youâll need to cut hinge clearance slots on each side. 1inch wide 2.5 in deep.
Fifth, I doubt whether the sink will be scratch resident. I vacuumed it out and the plastic vacuum cleaner nozzle scratched the sink badly.
So as long as one knows this vanity is not a quality piece you can buy it with eyes wide open.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by QueenofDrywall bathroom looks better...
Ok, so the vanity and sink are exactly what I expected them to be. Look at what the vanity is made of.... Composite wood = saw dust glued together and covered in white. Look at the price.... you get what you pay for. I am using this in a bathroom for children, and I will be surprised if it lasts 15 years. I did not buy it with the intentions of using it for decades. I bought it with the intentions of replacing it with a nicer piece a few years down the road. I am hoping a few years will turn into 10-12 years. I was surprised to see that it is not open underneath. How difficult it is to clean under still remains to be seen. I am picturing, in my mind, tiny spiders building webs up in there.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by HamburgerHands Bottom of the barrel vanity
The vanity top is actually reasonable quality however the base is cheaper than I could have ever imagined. As another review states the corners are all blocked with a single, tiny plastic gusset with two staples each and the horizontal sections are located with 1/4 dowels. Fortunately for us the dowels are not glued in as they were ALL drilled almost 1/4 too low. This meant disassembling the entire unit and flipping panels so new holes could be drilled in the proper locations. Even with significant re engineering and extra bracing this vanity sways in the breeze like a weeping willow. I could not recommend this product under any circumstances.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Michelle It's okay
I bought this bathroom vanity not planning to get anything to expensive. Its made out of particle board but thats what you get for the cost. The doors in front had a two inch gap in between them, which my cabinet guy said I could fix by unscrewing one of the door hinges. I wish it was shipped as the pic because it is more work for me. There is also no back on it where the plumbing goes. I had to get a specially cut piece of sheet rock/wood underneath the cabinet. Overall, it was average....
