If you do choose to go with the latest trends odds are your bathroom will look old and outdated within a few years.

Bathroom Vanities

Pick a design that suits your personal tastes, and a design that goes well with the rest of your bathroom. If you’re more simplistic and would prefer your vanity to be as well then a standard hardwood cabinet will be a good choice for you.

Having the same colors around your house does not mean your bathroom cabinets must be the same. Play around with various color combinations; you can do this at your local home remodeling store to get some good ideas. Shopping online for your supplies is also a good idea since you’ll probably be able to get the supplies much cheaper online then in a store.

If you’re installing your new bathroom vanity yourself be sure you turn off your homes water and disconnect the electricity before beginning. Keep a bucket under the pies you’ll be working on to pick up on the dripping water. Loosen your old vanity’s caulk with a screwdriver. Be sure you’re very careful when removing your old vanity, and be sure not to damage the surrounding walls.

Once your old vanity has been removed bring the new vanity that you’re going to be installing into the bathroom. You should locate the studs in the wall using a stud finder. When attaching the vanity to the wall make sure it’s done right and level. Once the vanity is level attach it to the wall using wallboard screws.

It’s suggested that you install your new faucet before installing your new vanity. This way you’ll be able to avoiding having to get under your vanity while installing it.

Once you’ve secured the top base of the vanity with caulk you can then reconnect the plumbing pipes, and then proceed to caulk the rest of the countertop to the wall. Remove any excess caulk and enjoy your new sink.
