I love this Vanity. I have a small bathroom that had an old vanity mirror etc. I upgraded with the Ventura. It totally transformed the entire room. I topped the Vanity off with the "Glacier Bay Builders 4 in. 2-Handle Low Arc Bathroom Faucet in Brushed Nickel" (picture is below)and I think it looks great.
The three drawers on the side also added a little extra storage in the bathroom. The side mount sink is a plus, it gives us some extra counter top space that was much needed.
Installation was a breeze. I screwed it to a stud and adhered the top. My only issue was that my old sinks faucet extended out further and I had to replace the trap for the plumbing.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kellen Beautiful and solid
Be prepared for a bit of lifting and some elbow grease, but that should be expected for something this solid. The marble top is a pure white (no flecks), the sides are a thick OSB, the drawers and center door are solid hardwood. The included hardware knobs are heavy and fit the look of the piece well. It included several pads, either to replace the installed ones on the drawer or for the feet to keep it from scratching your floor (I don't think vanities get slid around a lot).
Drawers and door close smoothly and flush, overall very solid with no complaints, I can't say for sure yet but I am not worried about wear or upkeep. I'll update once I get some miles/gallons through it. Looks great if you're a fan of dark hardwood.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sarah Sleek and Practical Design
I recently updated a half bath in our home with this vanity. I'm thrilled with it. The design is more on the modern side, however it's simple enough that it works in our more traditionally styled bathroom. Since it's a small bathroom I like that it's slightly less deep than the previous vanity we had. Despite that i has more storage thanks to nice sized drawers and a large cabinet. The drawers open and close smoothly.
The sink is off center which I didn't realize when I ordered it. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about that since I generally prefer symmetry. However, that means that one side has much more flat space which I really like since there is more room for a soap dispense and something decorative. And now I'm accustomed to the asymmetry and don't mind it.
I definitely recommend this vanity both for style and function. I think it would work well with a modern or transitional aesthetic and even a traditional style in most cases.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JohnS Great styling; tricky to install.
This vanity has a great, modern, up-to-date appearance with its pure white vanity top, off-set sink, flush doors, coffee-color wood, and comfort-height size. The off-set sink maximizes your counter space on one side. Storage doors and drawers are designed to give you increased space; the large door on the left opens to allow plenty of under-sink room. It has furniture-style base, which means no kick-plate on the bottom front. This is a very modern and high-end style, but if your floor is not fully finished underneath the old vanity, then this will not work for you. Either plan to replace the floor, or ?.
This vanity also comes with a fully-enclosed back. This is also indicative of a high-end vanity, so that once installed, you see full finished wood interior when you open the door. But this also makes installation more complicated as you now have to drill out/cut out the back to fit the plumbing through the back wall. There was no mention of this in the instructions.
A few other minor issues: white glue on some of the exterior seams left by manufacturing; no backsplash might mean more patching/painting for installation; cabinet had to be offset to the right to accommodate drawers and wall penetrations.
Finally, when installing, be sure to use clear silicone caulk. I used white and did not get the final finish that I liked.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYQueenSWFL Beautiful, stylish, very easy to install
We just moved to FL into a good, sturdy home that's more than 30 + years old. Our pool bathroom was in very bad shape, in fact we have never used it in the year since moving here. We did a quick DIY project using the Ventura 30-1/2 inch Vanity in Java with Cultured Marble Vanity Top in White to replace our the ugly green sink (see the photos).
The vanity is a rich, chocolate color with chrome fixtures that came with the set. We installed the set in about 3 1/2 - 4 hours after putting in a full day at work (my husband prepped the bathroom the day before). This vanity and sink set is beautiful, sturdy, and brings our 30 + year old bathroom out of the 70's and into the 21st Century. The vanity and sink were very easy to install and came with easy to read instructions (1 page). The set requires no assembly (YES!!!).
The vanity looks AWESOME and is the center piece of the entire bathroom. We can now entertain using our pool and pool bath without being embarrassed about not having a modern bathroom. If you have a small or mid-sized bathroom in need a quick make over, I strongly recommend this stylish vanity and sink set.
Note: The fixtures and other bathroom accessories were not included with the Glacier Bay Vanity and Cultured Marble Vanity Top in White.
