One of the most dramatic changes you can make in a bathroom is also one of the easiest projects for a DIYer. Replacing a vanity cabinet, countertop, sink, and faucet can amount to a major bathroom upgrade even if no other elements are changed. Today’s vanities often are sold along with matching counter surfaces with integrated sinks in a variety of materials, including quartz and solid surface, and many are surprisingly affordable.
Before installing a new vanity, though, you will need to remove the old vanity cabinet, a process that also involves disconnecting the faucet water supply lines and drain assembly. But the project is easy if you take it one step at a time.
Before You Begin
In rare instances, a bathroom vanity may be built in place, or installed before the other fixtures so that removing the cabinet intact is difficult or impossible. In these cases, you may need to cut the cabinet into sections in order to remove it. A reciprocating saw with demolition blade makes easy work of this task. Where this becomes necessary, it’s best to separate the sink and countertop from the vanity before cutting the vanity cabinet into pieces.
