The classic white cabinet is perfect for a smaller bathroom. It shipped quickly and the price was reasonable. It was simple to hang, BUT only came with two keyholes at the top rear of the cabinet. As there is a moving door and and a mirror, we were not comfortable just hanging it on these two hooks, so my husband drilled a couple holes and anchored screws to the wall.

First, pros: front side of cabinet looks excellent and by the end of installation you should get very satisfying result! Finish of materials is also good – perfect white color! Hinges – great! Not that heavy!
However, there are a few cons: 1. you can find some imperfections in assembly with naked eye inside and on the back of cabinet (not a big deal!). 2. Very strong smell of chemicals from the cabinet in our powder room – two days already and does not diminish (I am “lazy” to take it down and move to patio for a few days; took too much effort to put it on). 3. It seems that by design it can be mounted directly on a wall; however, in my dwelling all walls are dry-walls and have to rely only on studs for mounting. Studs in turn are not that perfectly positioned to mount cabinet right where it must be to preserve symmetry and harmony. So, I had to do (again) additional drilling in the cabinet to center it on the wall (see photos). 4. Finally, screws which hold the back panel can damage the wall paper (if you have it like I do) had to replace them with flat headed ones and cover with painters paper for extra protection.
I am happy with the result after installation! It was worth of ~1.5 hours of my time (it should be probably 15 min if you do not need to bypass all installation issues I described above. My rating (3/5) for ease of installation is based only on my experience). As a priced of advise to manufacturer - go with mounting bar - will add much more flexibility).
Happy DIYing and New Year!
