In a bathroom, a vanity is usually the largest piece of furniture, so replacing it with a new, improved version goes a long way to change the look of the room. Walk into any bathroom showroom or home center and you’ll find a staggering variety of vanity styles, which usually include the cabinet, sink, countertop and faucet. You can pick and choose the individual elements or buy one that is fully assembled and ready to install.
A plumber will charge $567 to remove an old vanity and replace it with a good quality 36-inch wide unit, which includes the cabinet, sink, countertop, faucet and the labor to install it. You can buy one for $450 and install it yourself and save 21 percent. That’s assuming you have carpentry and plumbing skills and tools to do the job..
If you plan to redecorate the walls and floor, the job is more complicated and expensive; however, if you’re replacing the just the vanity cabinet, take care when removing it so that you don't damage the walls. The project involves fastening the cabinet to the wall, then securing the countertop and sink to the cabinet and wall, and, finally, hooking up the faucet.
