So you're remodeling your bathroom, and you want to maximize its potential with a stunning new vanity. But how are you going to get rid of the old one? How are you going to install the new one? Are you going to do it yourself, or hire someone to do it for you, and how much does that cost? And just why, exactly, are you doing this in the first place?
Worry not, friend. Trade Winds Imports has a simple guide that should get you well on your way to the perfect bath vanity installation.
Bathroom vanities are easy to install. In one afternoon a modern bathroom vanity can be installed with standard tools by a mid-level do-it-yourselfer. A basic guide for installing a new vanity follows, but of course, be sure to read the instructions for whatever vanity you buy in case of variance, and as always, if you are unsure about your installation, please hire an expert (or a handy friend).
The hardest and possibly most expensive part of installing your new bathroom vanity is simply getting rid of the old one. According to HomeAdvisor, if you hire a professional to help you remove the old unit, you will likely pay between $100 and $400 in labor costs, and another $15 to $100 in material disposal fees.
To remove an old vanity, follow these steps:
Installing your new cabinet shouldn't be too difficult. Most vanities are built to make this process fairly easy, assuming there are no problems with your plumbing and you've bought the right-sized vanity for the space. Here's how you manage the installation:
That's all there is to it! Congratulations, you've installed a brand new vanity!
There are plenty of great reasons to install a new bathroom vanity. Here are just a few of our favorites.
Bathroom vanities have some of the most cutting edge styles available in bathroom remodeling. But they also have some of the most traditional looks. A bathroom vanity set can turn your bathroom into a Tuscan resort. A different bathroom vanity can turn your bathroom into a state of the art modern bathroom facility. And of course, most bathroom vanities fall in line somewhere between these two extremes. That means there’s a perfect bathroom vanity for your bathroom.
There are a wide variety of bathroom vanity styles. Whether you are installing a quaint single sink vanity for a small corner bathroom in an apartment, or a large double sink bathroom vanity for a spacious luxury home, you will have no trouble finding a vanity of the perfect size.
Bathroom vanities do not weigh as heavy on your wallet as do other types of bathroom installations. The reason is that there is less labor involved in the installation of a vanity. It is also quicker and easier to install a free-standing vanity than to affix a custom-built bathroom cabinet to the wall.
Added value to your home is another common reason for bathroom vanity installation. People judge a home based on the way it looks and feels. A quality bathroom vanity makes the bathroom more appealing and makes the overall ambiance of a home greater. It also improves the bathroom ambiance.
Bathroom vanities are modular. That means, if the sink basin chips, you can simply replace the sink basin, not the entire vanity. If the faucet breaks, you can replace only the faucet. Why would you want to install a bathroom set that required you to replace the faucet and cabinet if the sink chipped?
Increased utility is another common bathroom vanity benefit. If a greater need arises, for instance if you used to need one sink, but now you need two sinks, a two sink vanity can be easily installed with the installation of extra plumbing.
We hope you have found this guide on removing old bathroom vanities, installing new bathroom vanities, and the reasons to do so informative. Thanks for reading!
