Capiz Bathroom Ensemble
Traditional bath design is always in style and always practical. This bath ensemble is an almost translucent pearly white with a mosaic tile border. Coordinating toothbrush holder features a slot for toothpaste tube, and coordinating lotion dispenser is completely comprised of mosaic tiles.

A good value, except for the tissue box & garbage I found these to be a pretty good value. I was concerned about the durability of the mosaic, since they are natural capiz shell, but they have worn well for over a year. I wouldn't put them in a child's bathroom, but in a master they hold up well. I only recommend the fully tiled pieces. The cheesy pearl plastic on the tissue box and the garbage is just terrible. It is white, not cream, so it doesn't match the mosaic, and it looks tacky and cheap. More importantly, its pretty translucent, and shows the patten of whatever tissue box you put in it. And the garbage can shows the garbage through it. 5 stars for the soap dish, lotion dispenser, cups and toothbrush holder, but 2 stars for the tissue box and garbage pail. March 25, 2013
Capiz Bathroom Ensemble These colors went well with my new bathroom. What they don't say is that the mosaic tiles appear to be natural abalone or some other shell and the tiles are highly variable on each piece. We bought a few of these pieces in the store and spent about a half an hour going through all of them trying to get ones that looked the best, without any minor defects or dark spots. If you buy online then it is pot luck. Second, the smaller pieces are covered in the pretty mosaic. The larger pieces, like the tissue cover and waste basket, only have a little bit of the mosaic as trim on the bottom where it is less visible. It would have been nicer to have the mosaic trim on top too. The majority is a heavy pearl-like material that appears to be plastic, but they don't tell you what it is. That said, they, like most of these things, are overpriced, even using the 20% off coupons on them... especially considering that they are made in China. They are unique and attractive, but for the reasons above I only gave them 3 stars. March 16, 2013
