Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeytheHammer Prado 30inch vanity with BACK SPLASH!
I’m like most of you, a regular dad that scoured the internet for prices and vanities that I liked; read reviews etc… so if you are interested in this vanity please read my post. I recently purchased this Prado 30inch vanity and installed it by myself with a little help from an adult during the sink top installation phase. I am a not a handy man and I often find myself using YouTube etc... so it was a relief that this was very easy. I paired the vanity and sink with a brushed nickel faucet that was the same brushed nickel style as the tp holder / towel rack / light and light switches and it looks phenomenal. I chose the darker "brown" walls to go with this dark vanity because the floor is white tile and its looks spectacular. Friends have said how peaceful and calm the powder room is now(kinda funny) and my wife loves it. It took me a while to search on the internet and find a back splash for the top as it does not come with one and even though HD says they don't have matching back splash they do. The back splash is for another vanity but that vanity has the exact same top/sink as this Prado so it matched perfectly. You can order it on the Home Depot website and its free shipping. I wish it was included with the vanity but oh well. Just search "30.5 in. Stone Effects Back splash in Cold Fusion". It literally is the same exact size as the top for the Prado.
A few things I ran into:
One of the legs needed to be sanded down about a 1/16 of an inch so it would turn all the way on but it was easy. Be sure you match up the legs to the exact hole because they are all paired.
I read some posts under the reviews… To address an issue that was posted prior, I polyurethaned all of the exposed wood that did not have any treatment on it. That’s the only bad thing about most vanities is that an exposed wood untreated wood, especially particle board, will really warp and crack if it’s not sealed. I had to drill two holes in the bottom of the vanity because my water source is out of the floor and I poly’d those too. I then poly’d the entire shelf inside of the vanity to seal that 100% as well and it looks terrific. It looked like some of the issues other people may have had with the vanity were because of water exposure so I didn’t want to take any chances. The poly coating only took me like 10 mins during the process so I would def recommend that to keep your vanity looking great for a long time.
I had a white vent in the powder room that I wanted to match all of the brushed nickel accessories that I installed. HD did not sell brushed nickel vent covers and if they did they were like $40 or $50 dollars for the size I needed. Valspar makes a metallic spray paint that costs $6.00 and it matched the brushed nickel perfectly. I was actually stunned. I tried Rustoleum but that didn’t match at all even though the name of it said that it would. Go with Valspar to treat your vent cover if you need it in brushed nickel.
All in all, I could not be happier with the purchase and ease of installation. This vanity and mirror look incredible. It’s amazing how much you can change a bathroom for about $700 with this vanity set, some brushed nickel accessories and a new coat of paint on the walls, instead of doing a demo for thousands of dollars!
I snapped a quick photo, not the best quality photo but you can see the space I put it in and how it was set up. Good luck!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pjk Great value
Installation was simple. Screw on the legs, using a belt wrench for no marring. Install the sink, after affixing the faucet and drain prior to dropping in. Door did not need adjusting. Have ordered the back splash. Really a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ADS Great products for the price
Everything to complete my powder room in one package, only had to buy the light, T.P holder, and towel holder, and P trap, to put the finishing touches in place. I am, by no means, a professional contractor. This product was extremely easy to install and instructions were easy to follow. The quality is great for a cheaper unit, compared to some vanities costing three times as much. Just wish the unit came with a backsplash.
I have ordered a back & side splash separately (per recommendations of another customer feedback)and will install them once I receive them.

This review is really not about the vanity or Home Depot , which I have found satisfactory so far, but it about the customer service by the manufacturer, Woodcrafter. The vanity legs have to be attached and placement of each leg corresponds with a letter on the vanity. It is impossible on my vanity to install the back legs correctly. As per Woodcraft's instructions, I emailed a copy of my receipt and photographs of the problem. The response that I received was the following :
Thank you for reaching out to our Customer Service team about your request for replacement legs. Although we appreciate you taking the opportunity to contact our team, we regret to inform you that we will not be able to assist you with your replacement order.
You see, Jacqueline, the legs to the Prado 30 in. Vanity are custom made for each unit as they come down the production line. What this means is, is that we are unable to offer replacement legs because they will not line up/match up with a unit they were not custom made to fit; I can confirm that we do not even have a part number for those legs. Our best recommendation would be for you to consult with the Home Depot store of original purchase for her return/exchange options.
This is obviously ridiculous because if the legs had been custom made for the vanity, they would have fit properly! So much for a lifetime limited warranty! My husband and I are in our 60's and another trip to the store should not be necessary.
I have contacted Home Depot and they are willing to see if they can have a new vanity delivered to my home, but I would advise you to attach the legs while you are in the store, unless you want to make a return trip!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew It looks nice at first, but quality is complete garbage
We were excited to install this vanity based on the reviews. We also did install a backsplash like one of the reviewers. After 2 months of use the veneer on the finish started to peel off to expose what looks like paper underneath between the wood and the finish. I thought it was a fluke on just one part of the product however when I looked closely at the corners of the doors they also look like they are about to peel off. We are very careful with our things and this is a new bathroom. Home Depot is willing to swap it out for a new one due to the problem we had with ours however why would I want to replace a bad quality product with a new one that may end up with the same issue? Now I have to remove it even though I installed a backspash on top of it and take it back to the store. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kevinm2467 Just opened the box
The bottom was busted out of the vanity and the plumbers will be here tomm. Yes the legs were very stubborn to get on but I took a rag and a rubber maker and got them to line up.in the morning my cabinet guy is coming over to help put the vanity back together. The plumbers still have to do the rough in for the bathroom because this is new work. I wasn't happy to open the box and see broken wood
