Considering Installing a bathroom vanity? It’s easier than you might think. I recently installed a bathroom vanity in my grandmother’s house. I’m proud to say it looks great. And, it was installed without the help of a contractor or plumber. Before we installed, my grandmother asked me if I knew what I was doing? I told her, “Of course” and that she had nothing to worry about. In reality, I had no idea what I was doing. So I jumped on youtube and searched “how to install a vanity”, watched a few videos, built my confidence, and called a buddy to help. The whole installation took a day and a half. I was surprised by how easy the counter, cabinet and plumbing fit together, and to my grandmother, my buddy and I looked like pro’s.

The moral of this story is that installing a bathroom vanity is actually easier than it looks. With the proper planning and a weekend of set aside, one can save a lot while renovating the bathroom by installing themselves. The Hollywood adage is,
“If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!”
The DIY adage should be,
“If you can use a level, you can install a bathroom vanity!”
