James Martin Furniture is one of the hottest bathroom vanity brands out there, and one reason is that they work hard to respond to customer feedback, and are always looking for new ways to improve their product and their services. In fact, right now the company is undergoing some major changes to improve the quality, diversity, availability, and delivery of their most popular product lines. Many of these changes are already in the works while others are still being rolled out, but if you’re planning on buying a James Martin bathroom vanity, we’ve got the information you need about these upcoming updates.
Shop James Martin Bathroom Vanity Collections:
James Martin Furniture is in the process of consolidating production of their bathroom vanities, moving many lines from their existing factories to a single facility. While this is mostly a behind-the-scenes change that won’t have much impact on the products themselves (colors, materials, and so on will remain nearly identical), it will have a big impact on production. This new facility will allow James Martin to produce more vanities faster, helping reduce wait times and prevent their most popular vanities from going out of stock. They’re also improving their packaging and shipping methods, to help ensure their products arrive free of damage or defects.
Several of James Martin’s most popular bathroom vanities are currently available in slightly non-standard sizes, like 59.25″ or 35.5″. Right now, they’re in the process of modifying all vanities to fit industry standard widths: 24″, 36″, 48″, 60″, and 72″. This change might seem too small to make much difference, but the vanity collections undergoing this change can now be purchased with a greater variety of stone vanity tops. Stones that were previously only available with other collections can now be combined with almost any vanity, as the vanity tops can now be cut to the same size and used interchangeably.
New Stone Vanity Tops
At the same time, James Martin is introducing three new types of stone vanity tops – Rust Beige granite, Dark Santa Cecilia granite, and Pietra Grigio marble – in addition to their existing Carrara White marble, Galala Beige marble, Absolute Black granite, and Tropic Brown granite. James Martin has a new supplier for the stone as well, and are using only grade A quality stone. Most of these stones are available in both 2cm and 4cm thicknesses with waterfall edges, and now come with the sinks already attached, free of charge, but will no longer have built in stone backsplashes. They’re also taking further steps to improve packaging and shipping, to help reduce the possibility of damage during shipping.
Soft Closing Cabinets And Drawers
One of the biggest practical improvements James Martin Furniture is undertaking is adding soft closing hardware to their Savannah and Providence collections as well as all Designer Series vanities. This is a simple luxury feature that helps doors and drawers move smooth and quietly, and generally offers better functionality and durability.
Despite changing factories, nearly all of the currently available colors will remain unchanged; even where the actual finish being used will be different, visibly most vanities will still look exactly the same. That said, several designs will have old colors reintroduced and new colors added, including Antique Black, as well as a new a medium toned Warm Cherry and a deep Sable. Only two finishes will be significantly altered, including Harvest Oak, which is being replaced by a lighter toned oak called Country Oak, and the driftwood finish on the Savannah collection, which will be updated to use the more consistent and refined finish on their Normandy collection.
Another significant change is that the wood backsplashes currently available on vanities from the Designer Series will now be standard on Brookfield, Providence, and Savannah cabinets as well, to give them a slightly more luxurious, designer feel. These wood backsplashes are designed to match the gorgeous finishes of the cabinets, and are Valspar treated to protect them from water damage. This simple design change should also help ensure that James Martin’s bathroom vanities arrive in pristine condition, as it eliminates the possibility of damaging more the fragile stone backsplashes that were used previously.
As James Martin Furniture expands, they’re undergoing many exciting new changes. But all those changes are being made with an eye and an ear towards customer satisfaction, and providing the highest quality bathroom vanities possible.
