How to Fit a Wall Hung Vanity Unit A Step by Step Guide

Introduction

Wall-hung vanity units are a stylish and space-saving addition to any modern bathroom, providing a clean, minimalist look while offering practical storage solutions.

At Tapron UK, we understand the importance of getting every detail right in your bathroom renovation, including the installation of your wall-hung vanity unit.

This guide will walk you through the process step by step, ensuring a smooth and successful installation.

Step 1: Choose the Perfect Location

Before anything else, decide where your wall-hung vanity unit will go. Consider plumbing access, the unit's size, and how it will affect the bathroom's overall layout. The area should be free from obstructions and provide enough space for the unit's doors or drawers to open fully.

Step 2: Check the Wall's Suitability

Wall-hung vanity units require a sturdy wall that can bear their weight, plus the additional weight of the basin and stored items. If you're unsure about your wall's suitability, consult with a professional. You may need to reinforce the wall or choose an alternative location.

Step 3: Mark the Position

Once you've determined the perfect spot, hold the vanity unit against the wall and use a level to ensure it's straight. Mark the wall through the mounting holes on the back of the vanity unit. Double-check the measurements to ensure accuracy.

Step 4: Drill and Prepare the Wall

Drill holes at the marked spots, ensuring you use the correct drill bit for your wall type. If you're drilling into tiles, use a tile-specific drill bit to prevent cracking. Insert wall plugs into the drilled holes to secure the screws effectively.

Step 5: Attach the Mounting Brackets

Secure the mounting brackets to the wall using screws and ensure they are tightly fastened. The brackets should align perfectly with the holes or mounting points on the back of the vanity unit.

Step 6: Hang the Vanity Unit

Carefully lift the vanity unit and hook it onto the mounting brackets. Ensure it sits securely and evenly. Use a level to check that the unit is perfectly horizontal. If your vanity unit has additional securing points, fix these to the wall as instructed.

Step 7: Install the Basin

Place the basin on top of the vanity unit. Depending on the design, you may need to secure the basin with adhesive, silicone, or screws. Ensure a tight seal to prevent water leakage.

Step 8: Connect the Plumbing

Connect the water supply and waste pipes to the basin. It's essential to ensure all connections are tight and leak-free. This step may require some plumbing knowledge. If you're unsure, it's best to hire a professional plumber.

Step 9: Seal and Finish

Apply silicone sealant around the edges of the vanity unit where it meets the wall, as well as around the basin. This prevents water damage and gives a neat finish. Allow the sealant to dry completely before using the vanity unit.
