At first glance, you will see that this cabinet has a very aesthetically pleasing shaker design with open bottom shelf. It is a nice mixture of both the traditional shaker design combined with the modern design of the open bottom shelf.
Open Shelf Design
The open shelf design offers ample space for your toiletries and linens. This gives you easy access to supplies whenever you need them. Some might not want to have a bunch of stuff in the open but there are other benefits to this space. Vanity drawers and doors offer some limitations to how much storage you can actually get. Having an open bottom shelf eliminates a lot of the space that is taken up by drawers and doors. If you are worried about any cluttered look, which might be an inevitable problem, you can use storage containers that can be inserted into the open space. This can further add to the design elements and can totally change the look and feel of your bathroom.
There is something mesmerizing about the shaker design of this cabinet. The recessed panels along with the square pattern are done very well and works perfectly with the open shelf design. There are also larger and smaller variations of this cabinet all with similar look. The larger this cabinet gets, the more impressive it looks. It is also complimented by brass knobs on the drawers.
The Winterfell ES-30048-WMSQ-GR-NM comes with a 48 inch marble countertop and matching backsplash. The marble veining of the countertop works well with the gray finish, giving it a soft look for your bathroom.
The countertop comes with pre-drilled 8-inch widespread holes and pre-drilled opening for a single undermount sink.
Hardware and Special Features
Soft Closing Doors and Drawers
If you have read about any Virtu USA products, they emphasize their soft-closing doors and drawers on all their products. This is a great feature and the ES-30048-WMSQ-GR-NM comes with 2 functional doors and 4 functional drawers that are all soft-closing.
Quality of Virtu USA Winterfell ES-30048-WMSQ-GR-NM
This vanity is part of the Winterfell collection which features solid wood frame design. Virtu USA’s focus on strengthening the frame is what makes them shine. The strong foundation extends the lifespan of the vanity and helps endure the moisture and damage it will endure in your bathroom. The solid wood frame supports the ½ inch birch hardwoods on all the panels, doors and drawers.
Ease of Installation
Vanities usually ship fully assembled or partially assembled. In the case of Virtu USA vanities, it is shipped partially assembled. Each component is placed in their own individual packaging and shipped together on a pallet. With that said, this makes it easier for you to bring into your house.
There are some that complain that the products are not fully assembled but honestly, do you really want to lug a 300lb vanity into your house? While it might not have been Virtu USA’s intent for shipping this way, having separated components does make it easier to move around than one whole piece.
Once you have all the pieces in your house, you can follow the included instructions and put together the sink, countertop and backsplash to the cabinet.
Shipping and Logistics
As said before, the product ships on a pallet, which is normal for shipping furniture. It will ship LTL via truck to your house and you will need to be on the lookout for any calls from the trucking company to make a delivery appointment.
Is it worth it?
The Winterfell vanity is great value that is high quality and beautiful. The solid wood frame and soft-closing drawers are great features that will help last a long time.
