How To Instal 42 Inch Bathroom Vanity?
Now putting in a new sink and vanity is really easy. But if you’re planning on rerouting plumbing you might want to call a plumber in for that part. And if the space you’re working in is tight take some measurements to make sure your new vanity will fit.
And once you have an idea on size make sure you look at all the styles and options. Now when we started our project the bathroom look like this.
We’re doing a total bathroom remodel which meant taking out everything to the wall studs. Of course that meant removing the old vanity. Here’s how we did it we started by turning off the water supply and turning on the faucet to release any pressure lines. Then we loosen the slip knot at the top of the p-trap. You may have to remove the entire trap. We disconnected the water lines from the valves. Then we cut the sealant along the backsplash with the utility knife.
You might have to tug on the sink top to get it loose we used a chisel and Hammer to separate ours from the base. But do this from the inside if you’re going to reuse the vanity.
Once the top was off we remove the screws from the back of the vanity and pulled it out. So our vanity is out and the walls are finished. If you need to repair any of your walls now’s the time to do it. Once you’ve done that I’m doing stalled.
Start by marking the height of the vanity on the wall at three different locations then mark the width on the wall. Now you should have a rough outline for the new vanity. Use a stud finder to locate and mark the wall studs inside the outlined area. If your new vanity has a back measure the distance from the wall marks to the pipes.
Translate these measurements to the new vanity bag and cut the pipe holes with the hole saw. Move the vanity into place lining up the marks. Check that it’s level, and make adjustments if needed. Once the base is level drill a pilot hole at the nearest stud. Four holes not in line with studs you have to use wall anchors. Use a type that’s made for your wall surface tile, plaster or drywall.
Now you can attach the cabinet with screws. On the part to the sink, go ahead and assemble the sink while it’s out. Starting with the faucet and the sink train. Once done add a thin bead of silicone adhesive to the rim of the vanity, be careful how to get it on the face the sink top is ready to go on, this is a two-person job place the assembled sink on the vanity top and press firmly in place.
Then, let the adhesive cure according to the directions, once it’s dried reconnect the water supply lines and the drain. You might need to cut tail piece with hacksaw to make it fit. Now apply a bead of caulk along the back edge against the Wall and clean up any excess. Turn on the water to test for leaks and you’re good to go.
