How to Install a Bathroom Vanity

DIY a bathroom vanity and sink in a few simple steps. The simplest way to update your bathroom is to install a new vanity. When researching vanity ideas, look for something that is similar in size to your existing unit to avoid re-plumbing. By replacing your existing bathroom sink and adding a beautiful new faucet, you can easily transform your space.

Skill Level: Beginner
Time:
  1. Step 1 Vanity Placement

    Measure to determine where your vanity will be placed relative to the existing plumbing.

  2. Step 2 Install Vanity

    Install the vanity by drilling screws through the cabinet into a wall stud. Then place the counter and sink in position.

  3. Step 3 Attach Braided Lines

    Using an adjustable wrench, attach the braided lines on the tap leads under the sink. Then attach the opposite end of the braided lines onto the shut off valve coming from the wall. Gently tighten them.

  4. Step 4 Install the P-trap

    Measure the distance to the wall from the centre of the tailpiece and cut the wall extension portion of the P-trap so that it fits into the PVC wall adaptor. Put the other end over the tailpiece at the bottom of the sink and adjust to ensure that everything is in line, then tighten both nuts.

  5. Step 5 Test Water

    Slowly turn the water back on with the taps open and check for leaks in the supply lines and P-trap. Re-tighten if necessary.
