St. Martin Hardware
Sometimes when you’re planning a new bathroom, making decisions can be a bit daunting! Overall our strategy at St. Martin is to try and help simplify the process. We think that making decorative hardware choices needn’t complicate the situation.
So, we’ve assembled a very nice collection of quality decorative hardware chosen and produced specifically to complement our line. Great quality…smart choices.
Before making a buying decision, customers go online and read opinions and experiences of others to find out whether a company is creditable or not.
There are many articles about how important these review sites for small businesses. Is it really the case? Do these reviews really give you a clear idea about a business? Are these review sites getting paid for these services?
One of the biggest name in business review websites is Yelp. However, Yelp is far from being reputable review site out there. Many others often prove to be even more useful for products or services.
Home Design Outlet Center, after being in business for over 14 years has only few total Yelp reviews. At the bottom of the reviews page, in small prints there’s a link, more reviews but not recommended ! Most these reviews are positive reviews but they are not displayed. We can confirm that these reviews are from legitimate customers. Yelp can’t explain why these reviews are filtered.
Do you really think these reviews will give you a clear picture about a company? 14 years in business, thousands of customers, and just few reviews !
Let’s take a look at some of the negative reviews:
More than half of the reviews displayed are negative because many people do not prefer to share their positive experience.
One of the main reason for negative review is, customers do not read the product descriptions and “Terms And Conditions”
Just like every other business, we make mistakes. We work very hard to learn from our mistakes and provide an excellent customer service. But there are always factors we can not control such as weather conditions, trucking company issues, damages etc.
Also, there are customers threaten our business using these review sites: “I will post negative reviews on all your social media sites, if you don’t meet our demands! These type of reviews can be identified easily. We make every possible effort to satisfy our customers. Unfortunately, we can’t please every one.
Yelp does not confirm if a review is real. You can simply write a review about any business without even walking into their store or doing any kind of business with them.
Google makes it very easy to find local businesses and provide very good information about them. You can learn a lot about the business, there are pictures, business hours, directions and customer reviews. Business owners can respond to all reviews, which is good feature but google doesn’t check the authenticity of the reviews either.
We want to respond to all reviews but no such customers exist in many cases. So, if you don’t like a company, you can simply write a negative review. It’s not fair but it’s that simple.
Here are what we have learned from reviews and what consumers should do:
Read The Terms And Conditions
Terms and conditions are very simple and clear. If you have any questions ask before you place your order.
Visit The Store
Online shopping made our lives a lot easier. You can simply shop for a bathroom vanity online at the comfort of your home. We do make every possible effort to show products on our website with actual pictures with detailed product descriptions. Nothing compares to seeing the bathroom vanities in person. If you are really picky about the cabinet color, if you are trying to match a specific design, we strongly recommend you to visit our showroom. There might be common name for a color but each color has different shades.
Learn more about the products before you buy to avoid costly returns. Is the bathroom vanity you like will fit in your bathroom?
We all can agree that, businesses can learn from customer reviews and improve their services. But Yelp kind of review sites clearly shouldn’t be a part of your decision making. Their business model neither helps the consumers nor the businesses. They are only after the money …

What kind of wood is used for bathroom vanity?
Bathroom cabinets and vanities are typically made from these materials: Plywood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or solid wood.
What is MDF Wood?
MDF (medium density fiberboard) is an engineered wood made from composite wood pieces and fibers, which are held together with either a wax or resin adhesive. A thin decorative veneer layer is then stretched around the composite plank of wood.
MDF is one of the most economical materials in cabinet construction, it can be used in the bathroom vanity cabinets. It’s hard to determine the quality of the MDF; if it’s well made it will be durable even in humid bathroom conditions.
Solid Wood Bathroom Vanities
“Solid wood” is a term for two different styles of wood: Standard solid wood (all natural real wood), and solid hardwood plywood.
Solid hardwoodplywood is the most durable wood material for bathroom vanity cabinets. It is made from woods like oak, cherry, and maple.
Natural solid wood(all natural real wood) tend to shrink and expand as humidity changes, which can cause cracks in the painted or veneered finish of your cabinets, and in some cases, this may lead to warping. Natural solid wood must be dried properly.
Solid Wood Vs Solid Hardwood
Solid hardwood is a totally different material from natural wood. It is a manufactured wood that uses pure fine wood from a single natural wood source, which allows the wood to bend and expand in different humid conditions, but will always goes back to its original shape. That’s why no cracking or warping occurs.
IMPORTANT TIP: Regardless of which material your vanity is made with, be sure you have a proper bathroom exhaust fan to remove moisture from the bathroom.
BATHROOM VANITY STYLES
An alternative to traditional freestanding vanity is a wall-hung or wall-mount bathroom vanity that you can mount right on your wall. These are great for either small or large bathrooms. The downside is that many of these models don’t have extra storage space.
Single sink bathroom vanities are perfect for those with smaller bathrooms. These vanities have a more compact design and take up much less space than a double bathroom vanity.
DOUBLE SINK BATHROOM VANITIES
Double bathroom vanities come with two sinks, which make these models perfect for larger bathrooms. Both you and your partner, spouse or kids will have a sink of your own.
VANITY TOP OPTIONS
Marble, granite and quartz are the most commonly used materials for vanity tops. There are also other options, like glass and stainless.

SINK ON TOP VS UNDER MOUNT
An under-mount sink, mounts underneath the counter, which is very common. A top vessel sink is not a common choice for bathrooms because the sink itself sits on the counter, takes up space on the counter.
Bathroom Vanity sinks now come in a range of shapes, such as rectangular, oval and round. Rectangular sink has a more modern look, but a round sink has a more classic or traditional look.
As you look over vanity sinks, pay attention to the material used in the construction of each sink. Porcelain is the best option because it is easy to maintain, but some may prefer an acrylic sink. There are also sinks made from stainless steel that work well in a contemporary bathroom. And there are glass vessel sinks that sit on top of the counter.
What’s an acrylic sink?
Acrylic resin is a group of thermoplastic materials that can be used to make extremely clear, very durable product that’s used to make bathroom vanity sinks.
Do bathroom sinks need an overflow?
The sink overflow is a built-in feature that prevents accidental overflow of the sink and to help the sink basin drain faster.
What is a good size for a bathroom sink?
There is no standard size for a bath sink. Most round sinks are 16 to 20 inches in diameter, while most rectangular sinks are 19 to 24 inches wide and 16 to 23 inches front to back.
There are three options when it comes to bathroom faucets: Single hole faucet, 8 inch spread faucet and 4 inch faucet in chrome, brushed nickel, satin black, bronze are the most common finishes.
Most of the modern bathroom vanity cabinets come with a one-hole faucet mount. A simple and stylish single hole bathroom faucets are available in chrome or brushed nickel stainless finishes.
Single Hole Bathroom Faucet
Single hole faucet opening is an approximatly 1 1/4″ big round hole that’s drilled for single hole bathroom faucets. Single hole faucets have variety of finishes available, chrome, brushed nickel, polished brass, gold, bronze matte black and copper. Most of the single hole faucets have brass construction. There’s only one handle that requires an up or downward pull of the levered handle. And when we talk about single hole faucet models, there is plenty of variety to choose from.

Center Set Bathroom Faucet

While comparing bathroom vanity prices, find out if there are any hidden fees such as shipping and handling. Don’t forget, not every vanity is made the same way. They might look same but quality of the vanity might not be the same.
What do bathroom vanities cost?

If you are planning to remodel your kitchen or replace your kitchen countertops, take a look at some of the choices before you make a choice.
Marble is an exquisitely luxurious material for making kitchen countertops. It is durable and scratch resistant, making it a fine choice for all styles of kitchens.
Granite is recognized for its diamond hard durability. It is highly resistant to heat, stains and scratches and requires no sealing. Granite also offers fine resistance against molds.
Quartz countertops are essentially formed with 93% of crushed quartz, combined with plastic resins and color pigments. It is preferred due to its high availability in a range of colours. Quartz countertops are also hygienic.
Concrete kitchen countertops render an industrial look to kitchens. They are highly versatile and available in a variety of colors. Concrete can be poured to make the countertops, or the countertops can be created off-site first before they are installed.
Stainless steel countertops are used in a number of kitchens styled on traditional or contemporary lines. The way they match nicely with kitchen appliances adds to the appeal. The ideal spots for the countertops are around cooktops.L
Laminate countertops are budget friendly and are much preferred for the retro ambience that they create. The installation is quick and the material is durable, but it should preferably be safeguarded against heat.
Soapstone countertops make a preferable choice if you want the countertops to look unique. The material is durable an exhibits a high chemical resistance. Countertops made from soapstone also have a high temperature resistance and do not stain or scorch easily. Upon sealing, the countertops display a look which is darker and richer.
Acrylic countertops are durable and fit in seamlessly well in the kitchen to easily accommodate the sink as well. They resist wear and tear for years at a stretch and have a high resistance against heat, moisture, sunlight and stains. Light buffing is often all it takes to repair them.
Ceramic tile countertops are high on affordability and durability, and can be made of porcelain, ceramic or stone. They are available in many designs, and also make a nice DIY project.
Granite, quartz and marble, all form a preferred material for making kitchen countertops and add a naturally neat and stylish look to a kitchen. There are ways in which these all three countertops are similar.
Granite, just like marble is a natural stone which is mined, making every single slab unique. It is available in a variety of colors. Coloration of both marble and granite may not be consistent but that’s what makes marble and granite countertops unique and beautiful.
Unlike the two, quartz is not a natural material but a stone that is engineered. Slab is made from resin and pigment which binds the crushed quartz together. It’s very durable, easy to maintain and available in many different colors which makes it an excellent choice for countertop.
Let’s take a look at how the three compare against each other.
Each of the three countertops is exceedingly durable and heat resistant. They last a life time with proper care.
Quartz is the toughest substance among the three, followed by granite and then marble.
Granite and marble are porous and it is possible for spilled liquids to seep into the stone and make a stain. For liquids of an acidic nature, such as wine or juice, marble is more vulnerable.
Quartz is almost completely non-porous, so it doesn’t stain easily or become a breeding ground for bacteria. This also makes the countertop easier to clean.
With each slab of marble and granite being unique, it is very unlikely that someone else would have the same counters as you. Quartz slabs are engineered and not as unique as the other two.
While each slab is unique, marble and granite have a lot to offer in terms of colours and variety. But quartz has a nearly infinite variety to offer with unique pigments and colour. It is also possible to have a designer countertop made from quartz.
For kitchen countertops, granite, marble and quartz are all priced towards the higher side as compared to rest of the variants. Quartz is most affordable among the three but may not offer the much coveted natural look and ambience. Granite is stylish and easier to maintain as compared to marble, but marble just might be the preferred choice if you adore the look. Pricing for granite or marble will vary depending on the color you prefer.
