For A Classy Luxurious Looking Bathroom: Get A Beautiful Bathroom Vanity

The right bathroom vanity can really set the tone and style. Who doesn’t want a classy looking, spa style bathroom? An instant and inexpensive bathroom makeover can be as simple as getting a beautiful new bathroom vanity. You can take your bathroom from a plain abode, to a classy and luxurious, spa style bathroom, with this simple hardware upgrade. There are so many different styles of vanities out there. Vanities come in a variety of styles, and are made from a variety of different materials. You can find the classic ceramic vanity sink, or you can move on to more luxurious looking sinks. There are even handcrafted bathroom vanities that will fill your bathroom with an embellished look of heirloom art.

When you are looking for the right bathroom vanity, always remember to not only pay close attention to its style, but its cabinetry, countertop, shelving and material. One material that can definitely give you a classy and luxurious looking bathroom is marble. Marble can be polished to a high gloss, and can give your bathroom a very polished look.

After you found the right vanity, it’s now time to have it installed. You can do this one of two ways: you can consult a contractor, or you can install the luxurious new bathroom vanity yourself! In either case, you should always consult a contractor to get advice on upgrading your vanity. Now lets move on to installing the classy, luxurious looking bathroom of your dreams.

Here are the steps you need to take to install that beautiful new bathroom vanity:

1. First, you need to find a luxurious style vanity. Well this step seems obvious, but make sure that you have the right vanity that will project the luxurious feeling you want in your new bathroom.

2. For this next step, you will need to know a little about plumbing. Shut off the water to the pipes then disconnect the supply lines. You will need a bucket to catch any dripping water from the supply lines. Also, make sure to use the bucket to catch water that comes from the curved pipe in the center of the sink. This curved pipe is called the p-trap.

3. Next, you will need a utility knife to loosen the caulking between the wall and the vanity. You may need to go all the way down to the floor to remove all the caulk. When the caulk is removed, be sure to remove the counter top carefully so that the wall is not damaged.

4. After you have removed the counter top, remove the screws that are attaching the vanity to the wall. Then remove the old vanity.

5. The next thing you will need to do is find the wall studs. After this is completed, make marks on the wall for new screw holes.

6. You will need a carpenter’s level, and shims to make sure that the vanity is against the wall. Once the vanity is positioned currently, secure it to the wall with 2 ½” wallboard screws.

7. Use tub and caulk to secure the vanity top to the base.

8. Next, you will need to reconnect the plumbing.

9. The last step in creating a luxurious looking new bathroom is to apply caulk to the edges of the countertop.

If you are the do-it-yourself type, and know a little about plumbing, these steps should go easy for you. Otherwise, you can always get a contractor to lay down that classy and luxurious looking new bathroom vanity.
