How To Install a Floating Vanity Set

Updated: Feb 27, 2023

If you're looking for a good way to revamp your current bathroom then changing out your old vanity into a nice, modern, floating vanity is a great first step! These days, wall mounting is the new way to have a modern look. It not only makes a small space look bigger, it also gives a look of elegance! You might have seen this picture from our previous bathroom renovation idea but this time we are showcasing the vanity sink set. You can really see the change in look and overall feeling of the bathroom.

STEP 1: Turn off the water connection and take off the cold and hot water line running to the sink. Gather and prepare all materials you need! See our materials list below!

Most vanity sets may come with a sink. In these cases be prepared to unhook your current faucet and install it into the new sink after vanity set has been mounted.

STEP 2: Take off the current vanity set off of the wall. By removing the cabinets on the current vanity set, it will reveal the screws that is mounting it to the wall. After the screws are taken out, they are sometimes also secured with some sort of caulking. If this is the case for you, then you need to cut the caulking so you can easily remove it.

Be sure to remove every single screw. Some may be hidden, so be very thorough!

STEP 3: After removing the old vanity set, start locating the studs behind the drywall. Mark each stud with a marker. These are the markers you'll be mounting the new floating vanity on so make sure you are nice and centered.

Most walls in have either studs 16 or 24 inches apart. Since you will be working in the bathroom you must be careful with the water lines.

STEP 4: You can now mount the new vanity set. You may need a helper to hold up the vanity set while you get them mounted onto the studs. Add caulk on the part of the vanity set that touches the wall.

Use a level to make sure that the vanity is nice and stable. Caulking the necessary parts is important because you do not want water to be seeping through the cracks and into the drywall and studs.

STEP 5: Hook the water lines back. Turn on the water. You are all finished! Enjoy your new vanity set and be sure to share with us your final product!

A floating vanity set is such a new and cool look. We here at PanHelic believe that wall mounting is the new up and coming style!
