A Whole Lot of Vanity for a Great Value
The Caroline Parkway collection from Virtu USA features base elements from their flagship models. This makes it a solid and complete set. The product comes with a 36 inch cabinet, a marble countertop with backsplash, square sink, mirror and brushed nickel faucet. If you’re looking to cut down on time looking for individual vanity components, this is a great set to consider.
What Comes in the Box?
- (1) 36 inch Cabinet
- (1) Marble Countertop
- (1) Matching Sidesplash
- (1) Square Sink
- (1) Mirror
- (1) Brushed Nickel Faucet
Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the sink and faucet are slightly off to the side. This is a nice perk that gives you a larger piece of countertop space to put your bathroom toiletries. This is opposed to configurations with the sink in the middle, which only gives you a more narrow space on both sides.
The 4 drawers on the side are a great way to store extra items and will be very useful in the long run.
Functionality of Product
Not only does the MS-2136L-WMSQ-CG-001 vanity have efficient countertop space, drawers and doors are also installed with soft-closing mechanisms which give the soft closing effect. This is great for those who are in a rush and might leave things open. The soft-closing feature helps let you keep the bathroom tidy and neat.
Another great perk is that this set comes with a backsplash. Not a big deal but having a matching backsplash provides convenience so you don’t need to go out and find one.
Ease of Installation
The cabinet of this vanity comes partially assembled. This means that you won’t need to put legs and boards together. What you do need to do is screw in the knobs and handles before putting them back on the rails.
The countertop, sink, faucet and mirror will also need to be attached to the cabinet individually. This gives you a bit of flexibility when installing the parts, if you choose to do any customization. While you are probably not going to get this for customization, it will give you that option (you can probably sell the parts you don’t need).
Cons and Disadvantages
While the MS-2136L-WMSQ-CG-001 gets a lot of things right, it also has some pet peeves. The dummy drawer is a tradeoff for more door space. It is normal for vanities to have a dummy drawer under the sink to accomodate for plumbing.
Depending on how you look at it, the handles of the drawers are polished chrome with brushed nickel accents. The door knobs are brushed nickel. Some people may like it and some may not but it isn’t too noticeable.
Useful Things to Know
It might be common sense but bathroom vanities are usually packaged on a pallet and shipped on a truck. If you are ordering on Amazon, Home Depot or any other online retailer, you are going to need to at least provide a phone number so that the trucking company can help you schedule a delivery. Once a delivery time has been scheduled, you will need to make sure someone is there to receive the product.
Is it Worth it?
This is a great vanity set that comes with basically everything you need. Each component is designed to work well as a set so it will save you time if you don’t want to do any customization or spend time looking for compatible parts. It’s a great overall value for a well made cabinet.
