The first thing you need to do is get rid of the sink or vanity that is already in your bathroom and prepare space for your new vanity. Check behind the vanity to see how it relates – perhaps with some screws through the rails on the back (often called “nailer”), or round the corner. While your head is under the table, see how your table and sink are attached to the base. Again there may be a screw that holds the top in place, or it may just be held in place with glue.
Releasing your old vanity will be easier if you take off the top (it will be lighter). Finally use a utility knife and run a knife around the edge, cut each stalk holding the edge of the vanity to the wall or the back.
Take Out the Old Vanity
As in the plumbing project, before you start, turn off the water to your bathroom. Hopefully this means closing the shut off valve on the water feed line to vanity, but in some cases it may mean you have to turn off the water throughout the house. You need an adjustable wrench to remove the supply tube from the faucet basin, and a large wrench or pliers slip together to open the drain. (We recommend a useful bucket when you open the drain to catch the remaining water in the trap.)
Remove the door and remove the drawer from the dresser. If there is a mold around the base of the vanity, remove it as well. Now kneel down and remove the screw that holds the pride against the wall, and if you remove it from above, undo the screws that hold it in place or use the safety bar to remove it from the pedestal.
You should be able to slide the vanity out and away from the wall, but in some cases you may have to silence it from the wall. If you do, use a thin piece of wood to protect the wall from the drill blades. We recommend placing thin sheets of plywood or even an old blanket to prevent prying off the floor as you glide.
After you remove the old vanity, check the area for damage. This is when you can repair the damage or damage to water on the walls and make sure your floor is healthy and parallel.
Carefully measure the height and width of your new arrogance. Decide where you want to position it and mark the edge location with the vertical line. Now, measure and mark up from the floor in the three places the height of your arrogance. Use the highest mark and draw a level line in it, join the two vertical lines. You now have a great outline for your vanity placement.
Carefully measure the location of the water pipe and sewer coming out of the wall and transfer the measurement to the back of your vanity. Use the cart hole (at least 1/2 “larger than the pipe) and drill holes for your drains Cut the cutouts for the drain with larger holes or chainsaws.
Verify where at least one male is on the wall behind your new dressing table, measure and mark the location on the vanity nailer, and throw the test hole for the 3 “screw that will hold it in place.
Finally, Installing a New Vanity
Minimize the opportunity for damage (and make the batteries lighter and easier to move) by removing the drawer and releasing it.
Protect your floor and move the vanity to its original position, then slide it into place with water and drain the pipe that goes through the hole you cut in the back. Check if the cabinet is aligned (both side to side and front to back), and use shims to level if necessary. After the vanity level, plug it into the wall using 3 “screws.
Installing Top and Sink
If your new arrogance has a built in or molded sink, you need to install the faucet before putting it in place. Start by putting the tap through the precut hole and hand tighten them. Now, turn the top of the vanity and use the wrench to strengthen it. Attach the clean water supply line to the bottom of the tap and tail pipe to the sewer. Finally shake the beads from the silicone clumps around the edge of the table, then turn them up and position them on the dressing table with your tightly tilted back against the wall.
If you insert a separate sink into your new vanity, you need to install the table first, then attach the faucet to the sink, and finally put the sink into the table.
Attach the flexible feed path to the water supply valve and connect the sink tailpiece to the trap and drain. Run a small bead from a cauldron around the bottom of the tap and where the main buttocks
