Installing a Vanity and Sink

Vanities have come a long way over the years from modern to contemporary, the same can be said for vanity sinks as well. Replacing the bathroom vanity and vanity sink can change the whole view of your bathroom, and it is simple. For this project you will need a vanity, vanity top, pliers, utility knife, hammer, drill, 3'' wood screws, stud finder, level, shims, silicone sealant/sealant gun, faucet, drain, plumbers putty and tape. Before removing the old sink, and picking out a new one, measure the old vanity so that your new vanity will fit in the same space. To remove the old sink, turn off the water supply and drain the faucets to remove any pressure. Remove the water lines and have a bucket to catch the excess water. Using a hammer and chisel, remove the vanity top from the base and wall. With the help of an assistant remove the top, and pry the base from the wall. Set the new vanity into place. If it is not level, put shims under the bottom. Attach the new vanity to the wall with wood screws. Using a utility knife cut off the edges of the shims. Before the vanity top is installed to the base, install the faucet sink by the instructions in the manufacturers manual. Line the top of the vanity base with silicone caulk. Attach the vanity top. Line up the piping and attach the valves. Turn on the water to check for leaks. Apply a line of sealant around the top of the vanity. A new vanity and sink, and a new look for the bathroom.
