Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by hpiguy All Wood Construction, Gorgeous Winter Gray Color, Full Pull Drawers
With all wood construction, a classy Winter Gray coloration and full pull out drawers, this Albright 36 inch cabinet can be made to fit in any number of functions. It is not limited to just being a sink vanity.
It can be used as a vanity cabinet of course, as the back is completely open, and the cabinet is ready to have a counter top of your choice installed. The Winter Gray coloration is extended around all sides of the cabinet, so that it may be placed as the only cabinet if need be. They even extend the Winter Gray into the inside of the cabinet, ensuring a clean, high class look.
Both upper and lower drawers pull all the way out. A most welcome feature. The top drawer is split into two separate basins, with a single exterior panel. The split inside allows plenty of room for running a sink drain. the bottom drawer is full width. Both drawers have solid wood sides and backs. Excellent joinery work has been done to ensure a high strength connection of all drawer components. Drawer pulls are included, in a matching pewter color to match the cabinet. The slides are robust and very quiet, while stable and smooth to use. The slides can be detached to remove the drawers to allow plumbing to be completed and then reinserted.
Construction of the body of the cabinet is mostly plywood and it's joined with staples and glue. We did not notice any weak, wobbly points or staples pulling loose. They also include large screws to attach the cabinet to your wall securely. The 34.5 inch height of the cabinet feels perfect for adults.
We did not select this cabinet to be used as a vanity, though that is it's main purpose and it would fill that purpose very well. It can be used with other cabinets or a stand alone unit. We chose this cabinet to use it as a stand for a 40 gallon saltwater aquarium. It fits the tank well and looks like it was custom made for it. It's a much more classy look than a cheap aquarium stand and really stands out. Make sure to bolt it against the wall as directed, just like any other cabinet, no matter what purpose you use it for.
The contemporary looks and high quality materials used shine through when installing and using this. We've already had compliments on our 'custom made' aquarium cabinet.
I would confidently recommend this cabinet to anyone looking to upgrade the look of the bathroom or as a stand alone cabinet for many purposes, such as the aquarium stand we use it for.

I was a little skeptic purchasing this item as it had no reviews, but I am sure glad I did. This a a very beautiful high quality vanity. The drawers are different, but nice, and the color was spot on for what I was looking for. The beautiful brownish grey color is a real compliment to my quarts counters and back splash, I could not be happier with this item. Simply gorgeous!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Lorena Nice cabinet, perfect color!
I got this cabinet mainly to use as a sideboard in my family room because I love the color. Comparing this with another vanity I have in my bathroom with a vessel bowl, I feel the 34.5â high is too high if youâre planning to use a vessel bowl, unless you have very tall people in your house. For the regular under mount sink the height is perfect. I have to delete one star because the drawers are not closing all the way. I tried removing the drawers and back in and it didnât fix the issue. This is most likely a defective unit as I donât think the drawers should be this way. The top drawer kept opening by itself until I leveled the cabinet and installed the granite top (still the drawers were not closing fully). The back is missing a panel, which makes it easier to install if youâre using it as a vanity. Although this is all wood construction, I expected the front to be stained solid wood but it kind of looks like laminate. It comes with all the screws and hardware needed, but since the bottom drawer has thicker wood where the knob goes (being that it doesnât have the gap in the middle like the top drawer) the machine screw that came with it is too short. I went and bought one that is Â¼â longer and it worked great. This vanity is very nice and I would have given it 5 stars if I didnât have the issue with the drawers not closing right. The instruction doesnât say anything about this issue; it only explains how to remove the drawers.

Just out of the box this product looks impressive. I think it is better then the pictures I saw. The color is outstanding. The craftsmanship of this vanity is of top quality. It is all wood construction, no particle board. Very high end look. Solid wood drawers with full extension ball bearing drawer guides. Comes fully assembled, just put on the two knobs that are included. The knobs are very stylish and finish the look. The Vanity has many options and could be used in a number of rooms in your home, not just the bathroom. I am getting a solid counter top for mine and using it in my front door entry hall. You will not be disappointed with this product and I recommend one for any use you have.

I love pretty much everything about this vanity. The finish is great, the materials are top notch, and the design is excellent.
I'm blown away by the quality of materials and workmanship used in this vanity. The cabinet face frames, drawers, and drawer fronts are all made of solid wood. The drawer bodies are assembled with dovetail joints, and the drawer fronts feature very tight mitered bridle joints. The carcass is constructed of high quality 7-layer 1/2" plywood.
The finish is a beautiful smooth gray/brown color that will be complimented nicely by either a dark gray/black or light colored granite. I'm actually planning on using it as a guest bedroom dresser, with a wood 6/4 thick top finished in a contrasting ebony stain. (I'll have to add a plywood panel across the back too, since it's mostly open.)
The design is well thought out too. Instead of the standard under sink cabinets, the drawers offer much more usable space. The center cutout/divider for the sink plumbing in the top drawer is pure genius. In case you wanted to install a tip-out drawer for additional storage, the manufacturer left the top false drawer front secured by six wood screws without using any adhesive. It comes right off after you've removed the screws, and can easily be reattached with tip-out hinges. Or in my case, I'm planning on building a third shallow drawer that will best utilize the space for a dresser.
The one issue I discovered (as did at least one other reviewer) was that the top drawer front sits at a canted angle in relation to the face frame (see picture). It's not very noticeable though unless you're looking at it straight on from the side. This can be fixed fairly easily by unscrewing the drawer slides and remounting them at the correct angle though. As far as I can tell, any cosmetic evidence of the fix will be nonexistent, since at most I'll have to unscrew the drawer slides from the back and/or the sides of the drawer body.
Overall, this vanity is an excellent option. Just keep in mind that you or your installer may have to readjust the top drawer. If you've got the skills to install it yourself, you should be able to accomplish this fairly easily. Either that our your installer should be able to do so. (If they can't, you may want to look at getting a new installer!)
