Who Installs Bathroom Vanities?

Who installs bathroom vanities? In this article, we’ll provide you with all the answers you need when organising vanity installation.

When you’re renovating your bathroom, you’ve probably wondered who installs bathroom vanities and when it’s best to contact a professional when dealing with your bathroom installation. Here we’ll provide you with all the tips and tricks you may need when installing a bathroom vanity, and advice on how to choose the right vanity for your bathroom.

Who Can Install a Bathroom Vanity?

Depending on the type of bathroom vanity you choose for your space, there are a few options you can choose from when selecting the right tradesperson to install your vanity.

A Bathroom Installation Crew

Sometimes, when you contract a business to manage your new bathroom installation or renovations you might be undertaking in your bathroom, they have their own installation crew that can assist you. If this is the case, it’s best to take advantage of that team as their rates are often included in the overall price you’re paying for the renovation.

A Plumber

If your plumber is comfortable with installing your bathroom vanity (and has the associated skills and experience to do so), you may find that a plumber is one of the best tradespeople you’re going to get to professionally install a bathroom vanity.

It is especially helpful to get a plumber to install your bathroom vanity as they can also install and maintain all your plumbing fixtures and connections whilst installing the vanity, so you could be saving on time and money – both of which are handy when you’re installing a new bathroom or working on renovations.

A Handyman or Carpenter

You may find that your average handyman or carpenter could be capable of installing your new bathroom vanity, especially if the vanity is made of timber or the same carpenter who constructed the vanity is also available for installation. This too may end up saving you time and money as they can make any adjustments needed in terms of the size and shape of your vanity while on-site.

However, it’s important to note that if you do hire a handyman or carpenter to undertake the installation, ensuring that they have the right qualifications and skills to complete the task is paramount. You also need to make sure that they have the correct licensing and tools if you want to make the process as hassle-free as possible.

Can I Install a Vanity Myself?

If you believe you have the necessary skills to install the bathroom vanity yourself, it is a project some DIY aficionados have taken on to save themselves money.

But, installing a bathroom vanity without professional assistance can be a tricky thing, so you want to make sure you can finish the job before you start. Installing the vanity yourself if you’re not entirely comfortable with the process may result in you wasting more time and money than you would have if you had sought assistance from a qualified professional in the first place.

We always recommend using a licensed tradesperson to install any items as many suppliers will void the warranty if not installed correctly or by a qualified professional.
