How To Install A Floating Vanity?
Choose your floating vanity

When it comes to choosing a floating vanity, you have a few different options. You can either choose a pre-made vanity that’s already been constructed, or you can opt for a custom-built option. If you’re handy and have some experience with woodworking, you may even be able to build your own floating vanity.

Measure your space

Before you can install your floating vanity, you’ll need to take accurate measurements of the space where it will be located. This is important so that you can be sure the vanity will fit properly and won’t be too big or too small for the space.

Cut holes for the plumbing

If you’re installing a new floating vanity, you’ll need to cut holes for the plumbing. This is a fairly simple process, but it’s important to make sure the holes are the right size and in the right location.

Install the vanity

Once the holes are cut, you can then install the vanity. This process will vary depending on the type of vanity you’ve chosen, but in general, you need to measure the wall.

Measure and mark the wall

After you've chosen the perfect spot for your floating vanity, it's time to get started on installation. The first step is to measure and mark the wall where you'll be installing the vanity. Using a level, mark a horizontal line on the wall that's level with the top of the vanity. Then, using a tape measure, mark the desired width of the vanity on the wall. Once you have the measurements marked, use a pencil to lightly draw a rectangle on the wall that represents the outline of the vanity.

Cut the drywall

Cut the drywall to the desired size and shape using a drywall saw. Then, use a stud finder to locate the studs in the wall and mark them with a pencil. Next, use a drill to create pilot holes in the drywall at the stud locations. Finally, use screws to attach the drywall to the studs.

Install the vanity bracket

After your wall is prepped and the bracket is level, it’s time to install the vanity bracket. Use the provided screws and wall anchors to secure the bracket to the wall. Make sure the bracket is secure and check that it is level before proceeding to the next step.

Connect the vanity to the bracket

Now it's time to connect the vanity to the bracket. You'll need to use screws and washers to do this. Start by attaching the screws to the washers, then use these to secure the vanity to the bracket. Make sure the screws are tight so the vanity is secure.

Connect the vanity to the plumbing

Installing a floating vanity is a great way to add a modern touch to your bathroom. But before you can enjoy your new vanity, you need to connect it to the plumbing. Here’s how to do it:

1. Turn off the water supply to the bathroom.

2. Remove the old vanity, if there is one.

3. Assemble the new vanity according to the instructions.

4. Place the vanity on top of the pedestal.

5. Use a drill to make holes in the back of the vanity for the plumbing.

6. Connect the vanity to the plumbing.

7. Turn on the water supply and test the vanity.

8. If everything is working properly, add the finishing touches to your bathroom.

7. Secure the vanity to the wall

Secure the vanity to the wall using screws and wall anchors. Make sure the wall anchors are rated for the weight of the vanity. Use a level to make sure the vanity is level before screwing it into place.

Install the vanity top and faucets

Now it's time to install the vanity top and faucets. First, apply a bead of silicone caulk around the top edge of the vanity. Then, place the vanity top on the vanity and press it into place. Make sure the top is level and adjust it if necessary.

Next, install the faucets. For most floating vanities, the faucets will mount directly to the vanity top. Apply a bead of silicone caulk around the holes in the vanity top, then place the faucets in the holes and tighten them in place.

Finally, attach the supply lines to the shut-off valves and turn on the water. Test the faucets to make sure they're working properly.

There you have it! A step-by-step guide on how to install a floating vanity. This type of installation is perfect for small bathrooms because it gives the illusion of more space. Plus, it's a relatively easy project that most people can do themselves. So if you're looking to give your bathroom a quick makeover, this is a great option.
