How to Install Bathroom Vanity


Remodeling your bathroom may mean installing a new bathroom vanity. You can add storage to your bathroom with the a cabinet style vanity. If you are looking for a more modern look, consider a pedestal sink instead. If you have a bit of knowledge on how to do basic plumbing, chances are good you can do the remodeling work yourself by installing a bathroom vanity.

Bathroom Vanity Installation and Remodeling

  • Purchase the style and size bathroom vanity you would like. If you go with a pedestal style vanity, realize that more of the floor and wall will be exposed and may need some remodeling to improve the look. The size of any of these bathroom vanities needs fit well in your bathroom.

  • Mark off a few things on the wall where the vanity will be placed. Mark off where the studs in the wall are, where the water lines are located, and where the drain is located. Match this up with the bathroom vanity and mark the corresponding positions on the vanity itself.

  • Drill out the pilot holes that will be where the water and drain lines will be (some vanities are predrilled for you.) Use a hole saw to cut out these locations as necessary, using one that is at least a half inch wider than the water lines. Be sure to make these holes accurate so that the bathroom vanity will not be in any way uneven.

  • Use your drill to place pilot holes on the back of the vanity where you will align it with the wall studs. Choose the right measurements for the screws that were provided to you with the bathroom vanity purchase. Screw the vanity into place securely, against the wall.

  • Install the sink on top of the vanity as directed to do so. Install the facets onto the sink and connect with the water lines underneath. You should also connect the drain line to the bottom of the sink drain and to the floor drain. Use a bead of silicone caulk to run along the edges of the sink and the faucet to keep the water from seeping through.

  • Check all water lines after the caulk has dried for at least 24 hours. Fix any leaks now. The bathroom vanity is installed.
