Instructions for Installing bathroom vanity

* Before you get started with the task of installing new vanity to your bathroom, it would make sense to get rid of the old sink first. Check out the older vanity to locate its screws and also check out how it is affixed to the countertop. Removing the vanity from the top will be more convenient. Make sure to turn off the water inlet lines and the p-trap, before you get on with the project.
* Using a utility knife, loosen the caulk between the vanity and the wall. Take time and care to remove all the caulks. Remove the vanity gently to avoid causing any damage to the wall. Use an adjustable wrench to unplug the supply tubes from the faucet tubes. Taking slip joint pliers, undo the drain. Keep a bucket handy to avoid clogged water from spilling on the floor.
* Remove the doors, drawers and moldings from the vanity. Unloose and remove the screws that attach the vanity to the wall. A cordless screwdriver will be extremely handy in removing the vanity from the wall. However, in some cases you may need to pry out the vanity from the wall. In that case, remember to use a thin wooden scrap to protect the wall. You can use thin plywood to save your floor from gouging, when sluing the vanity.
* With the help of a measuring tape, carefully measure the height and width of your new vanity. Determine where you want to position it and mark the edge locations with vertical lines. Now, measure and mark up from the floor in three places the height of your vanity. Use the highest mark and draw a level line through it, joining the two vertical lines. You now have an exact outline for the placement of your vanity.
* Once you have successfully removed the older vanity, move on to determine the height and width of your new vanity and also gauge the height of the place where you are going to place your new vanity. Once you have figured out the desired height and the place, mark out the edges on the top and other areas where you plan to put the screws.
* Taking cordless drill, drill small holes on the marked edges. If you are not coordinated with the wall studs, place a wall anchor in each of the holes and gently tap them into place with a hammer.
* When installing the bathroom vanity, check to see if your vanity has a built in or molded sink. In that case you will need to install the faucet prior to the sink. Put the faucets and then screw it tight. Now, fix the vanity top and using a wrench, tighten its clasp. Next, connect the water lines to the faucet and tail pipe to the sink drain. Lastly, put a bead of silicone caulk all around the edge of the countertop, then turn it over and place it on the vanity with the backsplash tightly attached to the wall.
* Before you wind up, remember to install the moldings around the base of the vanity. Finally, turn on the tap and check for any leaks or drips.
