Modern design: time for a remodel!

As with everything around us, the elements and criteria of design are becoming more modern and advanced. Modern design is more attentive when it comes to having functionality and good aesthetic appeal at the same time. Many people might wonder why they should bother buying something that is relatively big and waste the space they have.

Whether you stick to a traditional 60-inch vanity or go bigger with a 72 inch vanity, you shouldn’t be afraid to go big anymore, because modern innovations have optimized big vanities to be useful and beautiful.

Bathroom vanity


Shut down the water supply

You definitely do not want any flooding to occur during this process, so make sure you shut down the water supply to your vanity. Once you do so, you can easily start working on the following steps.

Disconnect the water supply pipes

Start by separating all the pipes that supply water attached in the bottom of your sink and remove them completely to be able to take off the cabinet later.


Disconnect the drain traps

Repeat the previous step but this time with the drain traps that carry wastewater out of your sink. Keep a bucket near you in case of any left-out water that can drip from any of the traps or pipes.

Cut the caulk joints

Use a very sharp knife to cut out the caulk glue joining the vanity to the wall until they are completely detached from each other.


Remove the sink top from the vanity

Start by unscrewing the sink top from the vanity and put it aside. In case your sink top is glued, you can repeat the previous step by using a sharp knife to detach the sink top from the cabinet.

Remove the vanity from the wall

Once the sink top is removed, your vanity cabinet will be easily ready to be completely removed. Just make sure you remove all of the screws that are found in the base of your cabinet.
