Ikea hemnes sink cabinet?

Anyone have the Ikea Hemnes sink cabinet? I am wondering how the quality is and how it holds up. I know their kitchen cabinets are great, but don't know anything about the bath line really.

Thanks!

Funny, I just looked at this sink yesterday. Would also like to know if anyone has used it. I did wonder about the depth of the drawers--does that leave room for the plumbing? Thanks!

There's about three inches at the back. If you look at the installation instructions for the ikea sink-counterops, you can see how the plumbing works. They mostly turn it sideways to make it fit. Of course, if you don't use their sinks, it can be a little more complex to make it happen, depending on what sink you get. If you get an undermount you're going to lose a lot of the top drawer, for sure. Vessels are fairly simple to plumb their way.

Southboundtrain, you are ahead of me as I haven't made the trek to idea to see the Hemnes sink cabinet yet. What did you think of it?

I would mostly likely use it with an ikea sink, because I would be trying to squeeze a double sink into a small space. So I am looking at the biggest Hemnes cabinet combined with one of the double sink tops.
