How To Install Glass Bathroom Vanities and Vessel Sinks

Glass Vanity Installation

When you are putting in new glass bathroom vanities, one of the most important things that you want to do is make sure that you are installing them correctly. Putting in a new vanity is something that can be troublesome, and you want to be sure that you are doing everything that you can to make the installation go quickly and easily – and to be sure that you aren't going to damage the equipment or yourself – or your brand new vanity.

First of all, be sure that the glass bathroom vanity is properly delivered to you, or that you are bringing it home in a way that is safe for the vanity. Although glass bathroom vanities are very durable, they might crack if weight is placed on top of the pieces, or if they aren't properly padded when you are traveling with them. Therefore, you need to be sure that they arrive at your destination in good shape and that they aren't going to be something that you need to take back or replace right away.

Glass vs. wooden and stone vanities

Installing glass vanities is going to be a lot easier than installing other types of vanities, namely because the glass ones are usually a lot lighter and easier to move. This is because they aren't made out of wood or other types of materials that might be heavier. You should be able to move the vanity into place, and one person should be able to hold it into place while it is attached. This allows for it to be easily installed by one or two people, which means that it doesn’t require a lot of work.

The only thing that you'll want to be careful of when you are installing glass vanities is to make sure that you aren't creating a situation where the vanity could break. Remember that they are made out of glass, so they might indeed be quite fragile.
