Vanities FAQ

Can I just replace the vanity in my bathroom?

As long as the vanity is tiled under it should not be a problem, you should be able to look at the bottom and see if the tiles run underneath or if it butts up against the vanity, usually there will be grout at the butt.

Can I change from a floor standing to a wall hung?

Vanities are heavy so the wall may need reinforcing to support a wall hang vanity. If you are retiling, this should not be a problem. Also, if the waste outlet runs out through the floor, this will need to be moved backwards and run up through the wall. This is usually not a big issue but you should consult with your plumber before proceeding.

What is best wall hung or free standing?

This is a personal preference, floor standing generally has more storage, if this is what you are after. Wall hung gives the illusion of a much bigger space.

What size vanity can I have, can I go bigger?

Bigger is not always better, just because you have the room to squeeze a bigger vanity in doesn?t mean you should. Having some free space between items will give the illusion of a larger bathroom. Squeezing items in, just because they fit, can make the room look tight and small.

Before you start looking, take a few minutes to measure your bathroom and work through the "How to Plan Your Bathroom" article in our Tips, Tricks and Traps section. This will help you gain perspective on what's possible and what will enhance your design.

What space should I have between my vanity and shower screen

You need to have at least 100mm to be able to get in and clean your shower glass. I have seen the vanity seal up against the glass, please avoid doing this as no matter how well you seal it, it will still get dust and dirt building up. Also having free spaces between items makes the room look bigger
