Home Collection Hotel Space Saver
I bought this from Canadian Tire months ago and am very pleased! It stands well, and doesn't take up much space at all.

I love this cabinet... easy to put together and great quality for the price! This is the second one I've purchased... I bought one a couple of years back and ended up selling the house it was in. Very happy to have it again!!

Bought this unit for my son living in an apartment. He had the same problem as others! Was about 1/2 inch too narrow to fit the lid of the toilet. We are gonna check it further this weekend. May try a few flat washers on the leg bolts or possibly a piece of plywood with a decorative towel or something for the toilet lid. WOW - that will be cute!!!! Will return to the store if necessary! What a pain this will be now!
They should absolutely put the inside measurements of the legs on the packaging. It says 26" which means the legs must be about 3 inches wide each and they are not. SO what gives here??????

I received my CT flyer in the mail and saw this great space saver, checked the measurements and confirmed that it would fit my toilet...26" stated and my toilet lid is 23.5". So of course I buy it , assemble it and it doesn't fit! The actual inside is 20.5. The box says it will fit any standard size toilet but that's not the case. The box should state the inside measurements for fitting over the toilet NOT just the width of the crown molding. Anyway, now I have to take it all apart and take it back to the store. It also does not come with the screw caps for a nice finished look. Don't understand that one! The completed unit is lovely though...just wish I'd known those key measurements!!

After my hubby decided that reading the instructions were really best, he had it up in no time. We had no problems installing the space saver in our washroom. The only thing we had to do was to put cardboard shims under the front legs to keep the unit from rocking. No biggy!!!! We are very happy with our new unit - it looks wonderful and adds a great look to our bathroom, not to mention the extra storage space it provides. I recommend this product very highly.

Poch look on a budget!
Overall this is a great product. Solid, sturdy and looks great.
Approx assemble time = 1 hour
Issues: missing screw caps
It came with an excellent instruction manual and was pretty easy to assemble. All pieces were separately labeled (A-M) and even the different screws, hinges, doweling and so on were in separate resealable bags labeled (1-8). This made the instructions even easier.
As many individuals mentioned before there are some screw heads exposed. The previous review stated they were exposed on the back legs... but if you turn that piece around(as the manufacturer intended) [says in instructions] the exposed part faces the wall and this is no longer a problem.
Also, someone had mentioned a gap in the backing. The backing actually comes in three well labeled pieces. two for the upper part and one for the lower shelf. Instead of just being nailed in liked most cabinetry you have to assemble yourself, this one came with pre-drilled holes and screws. These screws help the integrity of the cabinet and keep it sturdy! If this is put together correctly, there shouldn't be any gaps!
The real issue with this cabinet is the exposed screw heads on the actual shelf in the cabinet. This can be fixed by a few walnut colored screw caps, for screw size 11,12,13 (25cents each at HH ~ not sure if CT sells individually)
To sum up, if you are interested in this space saver, go spend $2 on walnut colored screw caps for screw size 11,12,13 (8)!!

This cabinet added much needed storage space in our bathroom. It is very sturdy & easy to assemble.

Nice heavy wood.
As previous opinions were mentioned, yes the locking screws are exposed on the bottom back support wood.
Ideally the manufacturer should of reversed the piece of wood to have the large holes exposed against the wall.
I prefer the Debbie Travis collection as I have assembled 3 of them. I find the hardware of a better quality then the Home Collections.
Based upon my experience assembling 4 of the space savers, I have assembled the bottom section first (without the bottom back support wood), slid it over the toilet, then placed the top half and last the bottom support wood in the back.
I also find by having shoe molding the cabinet doesn't fit flushed to the wall. Either you cut a piece out of the shoe molding for the cabinet to fit or srew the cabinet within a wall stud, but, the cabinet will tilt slightly against the wall having the front legs elevated off the floor.
I did the screw to the wall stud and placed a small round furniture floor saucer underneath the 2 front legs.

Could use improvements
Very Nice shelf and looks good however two things I found rather disappointing were...1) The bottom shelf has all screw locks exposed there were no plastic covers to hide the screws. It looks so nice then you have these LARGE screw locks exposed. HENCE IN THE PICTURE ONLINE THEY CONVIENTLY PLACE TOWELS AGAINST AND ANGLE THE OTHER SIDE SO YOU CANNOT SEE THEM!! Also the back wall could of been one solid peice....there is a gap in the center back wall and no how are you able to completly fill and still have enough to nail to the back edges. We a dark duct tape to secure to together and hide help hide. Not a real big deal cuz then a shelf goes in and you close the doors...but still unattractive when you see the wall when you open it up.

BACK LEG CONNECTOR NOT A "MAJOR" PROBLEM"
TAKE AN EXTRA 15 MINUTES AND REMOVE THE TOILET TANK, YOU'LL HAVE LOTS OF CLEARANCE
