Having to make a furniture purchase online can be a daunting idea. After all, how does one purchase something from thin air – from just a small picture on a computer screen? It’s difficult enough as is just ‘guessing’ if something will fit dimension-wise, much less to imagine it will manifest perfectly at the doorstep one week later. In our ‘ask about the vanity’ series, we hope to answer some customer questions before purchase point – so as to help our visitors to better grasp what it is they are buying, when physically seeing the item is not an option. We’ve broken the Ariel Vanity Series – Cambridge into a list of the most common of Q & A’s. Let’s review: Sku# A037S, A043S, A061D and A073D.
Is the vanity top sealed? The top of the vanity is not sealed.
What is the shape of the sink? The A037S and A043S have a choice of left and right offset oval sinks. They come in espresso, grey or a white finish.
Is the back splash attached to the counter top in set? The back splash is attached to the counter top in set.
Do the sinks come pre-mounted to the counter top? Yes, the sinks on the vanity set are pre-mounted.
How many faucets holes does the vanity top have? The vanity top comes with 3 faucet holes.
Can the middle hole handle a single faucet? Yes, a faucet can be placed in the center of the sink.
What type of metal is the hardware on the vanity? The hardware on the vanity set has a satin nickel finish.
Does the plumbing for the sinks come up through the floor or through wall on this vanity? This vanity has the plumbing come up through the floor.
Does this vanity set include the drain assembly? The drain assembly is sold separately.
Is the top marble flush with the side of the cabinet without overhang so it could be placed flush against a wall on each side? No, the counter top has a 1″ overhang on the sides.
Can the vanity be purchased without the mirror? Yes

For the A037S-R-GRY – what is the width of the drawers for this unit? 9.8” wide.
How is the mirror to be hung? I see some rather custom brackets on the back. Do I need to hang from all 3 across the top and 3 across the bottom? Is there special hardware to attach to the wall or just use nails? Is there a template to measure the holes? The mirror should be mounted using the wall-mounting hardware included with the mirror. If you are unable to locate the hardware, you can purchase wall screws and anchors from a local hardware store or call the manufacturer. All 6 holes should be used to mount the mirror for increased stability.
How is the marble top to be attached to the vanity? Does it just rest on it or it is to be silicone down or something? The marble top will need to be secured to the vanity top by using silicone. Ariel recommends Liquid Nail for stone counter tops.
