Given the price point it’s in, this is a really nice vanity. Yes, it’s made out of MDF & not wood, but once installed, you really wouldn’t ever know it. The drawers feel sturdy, slide open easily and look nice. The drawer organizers are a huge plus – it’s great to be able to store small things in the sliding organizer on top. It’s perfect for pill & vitamin bottles – it keeps them organized and allows you to maximize the drawer space below.
Probably the best part of this vanity is that is comes PRE-ASSEMBLED! I killed the majority of a Saturday afternoon putting together a wooden vanity for a different bathroom once upon a time, so simply being able to uncrate this vanity and install it was a huge plus. As for installation, there’s nothing out of the ordinary aside from the fact that it’s very, very heavy. Installation is definitely a 2-man job, and a 3rd set of hands couldn’t hurt. As I mentioned before, it’s made out of MDF, so you’re going to want to be a little more careful when transporting and installing it than you would with a wood unit, but other than that, it’s no big deal.
My only real complaint about this unit is with the color of the hardware. If you’re hoping to match a faucet to the hardware on this vanity – good luck. The color is described as “nickel,” but I’d really classify it as more of a pewter or gunstock gray. It definitely doesn’t coordinate with brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze (see photo). It’s not a huge deal as you can easily & rather cheaply purchase different hardware to match your faucet, but still something worth mentioning. For what it’s worth though, I have no problem with the quality of the hardware – it’s very sturdy – just the color wasn’t what I expected.
Bottom line - this is a great budget vanity that looks sharp and has 2 major perks: 1) its convenient, space saving drawer organizers and 2) that it arrives fully assembled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bikiniwithmartini Catchall Space Turned Crafts Room
A spare bedroom that was once a catchall space for out-of-season clothing and Christmas decorations is now an all purpose crafts room with the ability to become an office if the need arises. The two Glacier Bay Regency vanitiy cabinets, this one at 48" and another one at 36", are adjoined creating an incredibly beautiful and super efficient work station that is the hub of the room. The vanity cabinet depth of 22" is perfectly suited for the small space. A white melamine panel trimmed with bed moulding will become the one piece countertop for the combined cabinets. The cabinet isn't only strong and durable but has very attractive recessed drawers and doors with pretty hardware. The arched toe kick adds a nice curvaceous design to an otherwise linear structure. I absolutely love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by smarteboy Good value for what it is.
I like this vanity, it looks great, and the price was very reasonable. It has a lot of features like the drawer organizer and the look of real wood on the doors and drawers. The hardware looks nice, and the drawer slides feel quality.
The only thing I could knock this on, is that it is made of MDF rather than wood. This makes the vanity quite heavy. You will need some help getting it into place. Once it is installed, there is no problem, since it is actually attached to the wall. When working with MDF, be careful, cause you really can't fix it if you break it.
Went to the local cabinet company and found a nice piece of granite in their "bone yard" and had them make it into a vanity top. It didn't cost too much, and it looks great.

This vanity arrived strapped to a pallet. I found it to be double boxed with no damage upon receipt.
This vanity is also deceptive in it's weight. The idea of one person monkeying this thing around is slim to none...Its heavy, even without the top.
Overall construction is of medium-density fiberboard (MDF), with a white covering for the finish.
The fastening of the panels is accomplished through the use of thick, plastic corner blocks fastened with thick gauge staples. The center of each corner block has a hole to accommodate screws to fasten a top. All the drawers extend through the use of smooth, metal drawer extension glides. The doors are installed using fully adjustable, quality hinges.
Overall, the construction is complete, and sound, with no wobble normally associated with the use of inferior components.
Several other reviews indicate the toe-kick area breaking off, or the vanity material swelling when wet, etc...For one, there's no vanity out there that when I'm moving it, that I would grab it by the toe-kick and expect it to hold without breaking. Second, as with anything made out of MDF, when it is subjected to direct contact with liquids, it will swell.
My observation of this vanity is that it's a piece of furniture. As such, once I've positioned it, I don't expect to be be moving it around.
This vanity is a solid vanity for its price. To find a similar vanity made out of wood and not MDF would approach perhaps a third more of this cost on top.
In conclusion. For the cost of this vanity, and added features of having metal drawer slides, fully adjustable hinges, and a sound fit, its well worth placing this on your list of considerations when looking for a vanity.
Well pleased with this vanity...And best of all, my wife loves it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by engr33 a mix of nice detail and shoddy design. who came up with stapling on the kick plate?
Ok, so the kickplate is held on by cheap plastic brackets that are not sturdy, and are attached with staples!!! Also, one of the lower corners was broken off. We were on a time crunch, and were able to install the vanity after crafting a new kickplate bracket out of a couple small wood blocks and screwed it on. The broken corner would not be visible as it was against a wall. Now it looks terrific, and the slider drawers inside the drawers are very convenient. I would recommened it only if you are ok with fixing the kickplate bracket your self, and also try to inspect it in the store before you bring it home to ensure there's no damage.

The good. The drawers and extension rails along with the hardware are good quality.
The bad. This unit is made of particle board which is extremely heavy to work with. Also particle board bursts into dust if you try to cut or drill it. Much of the assembly is stapled together. I ripped out the backing board and plastic squares with one hand and no effort. This unit is so heavy. It's back breaking work to install it. Also, the particle board is NOT WATERPROOF for a bathroom vanity. And since it's not wood, it can not be patched or repaired.
