  • Consult professional help if you are unfamiliar with removing/installing bathroom cabinetry and working with associated plumbing hardware and tools.
  • Installing a vanity cabinet and vanity top will require more than one person to do the job.

Vanity Cabinet Installation Instructions

  1. Determine vanity cabinet placement. Consider electrical outlets and plumbing requirements. Insure optimum clearances for cabinet doors and drawers, and other clearances such as bathroom entry doors, toilets, and shower/tub openings. NOTE: our white thermo-foil cabinets have full overlay drawers, meaning drawer fronts extend nearly flush to the sides of the cabinet. Special attention is needed when placing these cabinets against a side wall where the bathroom door’s trim casing may prevent drawers from fully opening. A fill strip or different drawer configuration may be necessary.
    If you are installing a furniture style vanity (with legs), see those instructions before proceeding.
  2. Be sure that the floor is level. If necessary, shim bottom of cabinet so that the back is flush against the wall.
  3. Locate wall studs. Attach cabinet to the wall at stud locations (screw through the cabinet wall brace into a wall stud).
  4. Doors can easily be adjusted (if out of alignment) by turning the adjustment screw on the hinge and/or loosening the hinge screws attached to the face frame, make adjustments to door (move it up or down) then re-tightening screws.
  5. Door and drawer knobs on applicable cabinets are located in a bag taped around the wall brace.

Care and Cleaning Instructions

Protect against moisture and steam with good ventilation. The most common problem associated with improper maintenance is water damage. Lacquer makes the wood surface water resistant but NOT WATERPROOF. Clean up spills immediately. Use a blotting rather than a wiping action. Water left over a period of time will cause white spots in the finish and result in lacquer failure. Counter tops that do not have raised edges to keep water off the cabinets, will need more maintenance.

For white thermo-foil cabinets, use a clean, damp cloth. If using a mild all-purpose cleaner for more stubborn stains, read the manufacturer’s directions and test on a non-conspicuous area before cleaning.

With a little bit of care, your vanity will last for many years!
