Thinking about renovating your bathroom? Although it will take a certain amount of time in terms of commitment, re-doing a bathroom, whether it's part of a real estate flip or a downtown condominium renovation, is not quite as hard a task as many people think. In this article, we are going to provide you with the steps to installing a new bathroom vanity to give your bathroom an upgraded look.
Now before you jump into the details, it is important to get the preliminaries out of the way. Contemporary bathroom vanities look great and modern, but it doesn't make any sense to purchase one that doesn't fit into your overall bathroom design. If you're living in a cottage it may not fit to have a vanity suited to a condo. Make sure and get your measurements done first! If you start out by finding a vanity you want, then you will have to make room for it in your bathroom. Remember you need to place it along a wall with at least one stud, and measure the height and width of the vanity and mark these on the wall.
You also need to know where your bathroom pipes are. Once you have the vanity's dimensions marked out on the wall, measure in to find out where the pipes will go. Then, you will have to transfer this information to the back of the vanity and cut holes in the back for your pipes (one of the great things about a standalone modern glass vanity is that you can skip this step entirely, there is no back wall!).
These steps out of the way, it is time to install, which is something that even a man who spends his days researching rentals instead of getting his hands dirty can handle. First, slide the vanity into place along the wall. You need to make sure that it is level both from side to side and from the wall to the front of the vanity; if it's not, then use shims to even things out.
Once bathroom vanities are level they can be nailed to the wall. You will need to use screws to attach your vanity to the stud in the wall. Once this is done, again check to ensure everything is level. Then attach the molding, the vanity doors, and the countertop, as well as the sink and fixtures. This is a great renovation that you can do to your home that's not too complicated, where you need to rent expensive equipment to complete the job.
