The installation of bathroom cabinets needs a professional. Generally, the service is provided by sellers. If you shop online or the seller do not provide installation service, here are something you need to pay attention before you install the bathroom vanity by yourself.
1. Confirm the installation position
Before laying the floor tiles and wall tiles, confirm the installation position of the bathroom cabinet. Since the installation of the bathroom cabinet requires holes in the wall, water inlet and drain holes are also required. Once installed, the position cannot be moved. Therefore, confirming the installation position of the bathroom cabinet is a prerequisite before installation.
2. Confirm the shape and size
After confirming the installation position, choose the shape and size of the bathroom cabinet according to the installation location:
After the position of the bathroom cabinet is determined, the shape and size of the bathroom cabinet can only be determined according to the installation position.
3. Remember the plumbing
Check the piping diagram of the water pipe and the wiring diagram of the wire:.
When installing, use an electric drill to make holes in the wall, so it is very important to confirm the pipeline diagram and wiring diagram before installation. If you break the water pipe or wire wiring diagram, you must pry off some of the wall tiles, causing unnecessary losses.
4. Confirm the height
Generally, the standard installation height of bathroom cabinets is 80~85cm, which is calculated from the floor tiles to the upper part of the wash basin. The specific installation height should be determined according to the height and the habits of the family members.
The accessories and installation of each bathroom cabinet are different, that is, the punching size (the size of the hole on the wall) of the same model is not the same, but the installation process is basically the same.
