Often, all you need to do to update your bathroom is to install a new vanity. The choice in colour and style is wide – you can go traditional or thoroughly modern. It's a good idea to look for something that is similar in size to your existing unit. With the addition of a matching sink and beautiful new faucet, your space will be transformed.

6. Test Water
Carefully remove existing baseboard and set aside for reuse once vanity is in place.
Measure to determine where your vanity will be placed relative to the existing plumbing.
Install the vanity using screws through the cabinet into a wall stud. Then place the counter and sink.
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.
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.
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.
