Tools:

Every home or office needs to have the necessary tools available in order to properly complete tasks. A well-stocked toolbox should contain a pencil, stud finder, tape measure, drill, screwdriver, hammer, utility knife, flashlight, level, eye protection such as safety glasses and goggles, and cleaning clothes and gloves. These items allow users to safely complete a variety of projects with confidence. When dealing with projects that involve electricity or carpentry it is especially important to make sure you have protective clothing on hand to prevent any unnecessary accidents. With the right tools on hand, you can take on just about any project with ease.

 

MATERIALS:

Installing new bathroom vanities is usually a straightforward process as long as all the necessary materials are on hand. These materials may include a vanity, vanity top, sink(s), drywall screws, faucet(s), sink drain assembly, silicone sealant, and wooden shims. Proper planning and organization are key to ensuring that the task runs smoothly. When fitting the vanity in place, it's important to level it up accurately with wooden shims before tightening the screws. Additionally, consider sealing areas that require water resistance with a silicon sealant for added protection. Working carefully and paying attention to these details will help create an elegant and functional addition to your bathroom.

 

  • NEW VANITY PLACEMENT

Before beginning the installation process for your new Modern bathroom vanity, it is important to first determine and mark its placement. By taking precise measurements of the wall space available and verifying they match up with the size of the vanity, you can make sure that your new fixture will fit securely in place. It is crucial to ensure this step is completed correctly to guarantee a successful installation of the vanity.

  • DISCONNECT THE VANITY PLUMBING

Disconnect the vanity plumbing and open up a faucet to release any pressure. Then, remove hot/cold water supply lines as well as your drain trap (also known P-trap). Use that bucket there just in case some leaks out!

 

  • REMOVE THE OLD BATHROOM VANITY

Removing an old bathroom vanity can be a relatively simple task. Start by using a utility knife to cut the sealant along the backsplash and carefully pull on the sink or vanity top in order to remove it from the wall. Once removed, you can take out the screws at the base of the vanity with a drill and remove it. After this is done, you can repair any damage to the wall. Following these steps will help ensure that your bathroom renovation goes smoothly.

Now that the old vanity has been removed, it's an optimum opportunity to focus on any damage to the wall or areas of the wall that may need to be touched up with paint. Additionally, this is a desirable chance to patch up any issues with the flooring and even take it one step further and apply a fresh coat of paint to the entire bathroom prior to moving ahead with other projects.

  • MARK THE WALL

 Installing a new vanity requires that you locate and mark the precise location of the studs in your wall. Though this may seem like a tedious process, there are two simple steps to accomplish it: first, listen for a solid sound as you knock on the wall; second, use a stud finder to visualize where they are located. If you cannot locate any wall studs, you can use wall anchors instead. However, be sure that they are the proper type of anchors for your specific wall material. With these steps and the right materials, you're well on your way to installation success!

 

  • PREPARE THE BACK OF THE NEW VANITY

 Adding a vanity cabinet to your bathroom is an excellent way to upgrade the look and make the space feel more inviting. To ensure it is installed correctly, it is important that you check if your vanity cabinet has a solid back before installation. If it does, you will need to measure, mark and drill holes to accommodate any necessary drain pipes and supply pipes. Doing this step prior to installation can save you time in the long run since pipes should not be blocked or cramped by the cabinet later on. Taking some time during setup can help ensure that your new vanity looks great in your bathroom and functions properly for years to come.

 

  • PLACE AND LEVEL 

Before continuing with vanity installation, ensure that the vanity cabinet is set in place and perfectly level. Measure carefully to confirm that the markings you made previously are accurately lined up with your vanity; side-to-side and front-to-back. Utilize included vanity feet or wooden shims if needed to adjust the height and achieve an even balance. With everything in place, you can now move forward confidently and complete your vanity installation project.

 

  • SECURE THE VANITY TO THE WALL

 

After you have selected a location for the vanity, use two cabinet screws to secure it to the wall. Make sure to drive these screws through the mounting strip on the back of the vanity and into each wall stud or anchor. For under-mount sinks, adhere to the instructions provided with the sink before proceeding to step eight. Failing to do so can cause irreparable damage to your new piece of furniture, so ensure that all instructions are followed carefully before attaching the vanity.

 

  • INSTALL SINK FAUCET

Installing your sink faucet is a necessary step for the installation of your vanity top and countertop, so be sure to take the time to do it properly. It is important to apply a bead of caulk around the bottom of the faucet and make all of the necessary connections before attempting to affix it to the vanity top. Depending on what kind of vanity you purchased, you may need one or two faucets - with double-sinks requiring two sets, naturally. With patience and due diligence these steps are easy to accomplish and will ensure that your sink is connected safely and securely.

 

  • INSTALL VANITY TOP

Installing the integral sink and vanity top is a process of careful measuring and application. A dot of silicone sealant should be applied to the corners, with a thin bead of caulk to ensure it is properly affixed onto the vanity. Gently press the vanity top into place and then use a damp cloth to remove any excess sealant. If the sink is not an integrated piece with the counter, attach it to the countertop before installing it onto the vanity. For those looking for vanity tops, we have a wide variety of options including marble, quartz, and laminate - all designed to fit modern-day luxury standards.

 

  • PLACE AND SEAL THE BACKSPLASH

Installing a vanity top with a separate side and/or back splash is relatively simple and straightforward, but it does require some precision for the best possible results. The first step is to apply a bead of adhesive silicone sealant in a serpentine pattern on the back and press it firmly into place, ensuring that it's pressed against the wall. This ensures that your finished job looks professional and that your vanity is secure. By following this simple step, you can be confident your vanity will look great for years to come.

 

  • INSTALL SINK AND SEAL

Installing a semi-recessed or vessel sink requires sealing any gaps between the wall and backsplash, and the vanity top and backsplash, with silicone sealant. Excess sealant should be quickly removed with a damp cloth before it has had a chance to dry and harden. Before beginning the installation of your chosen sink, refer to the provided instructions carefully to ensure the job is done correctly. With some careful attention to detail, you should have a secure and attractive sink in no time!

 

  • RECONNECT WATER SUPPLY

Completing the installation of a faucet requires connecting the water supply lines, installing the drain, and filling gaps with silicone caulk. It is very important to ensure that all connections are securely tightened and verify that there are no leaks before turning on the water supply. To be safe, it is advisable to place a bucket beneath the sink in case any water escapes during testing as this can cause expensive and inconvenient damage. Following these steps will be very helpful in finalizing your project with great results.
