Bathroom vanity on top?
1 Attachment(s)
We are remodelling our bathroom. the old vanity was an old style with a recessed kick plate. It sat directly on the subfloor and the flooring butted up to it and was siliconed along the edge. Our new vanity does not have legs like some of the new ones do. It sits flat on the floor but the base is not recessed, rather it looks like it has baseboard all around it. My wife says it looks more like a piece of furniture. Do I put the fooring under the vanity like everywhere else in the house where the baseboard is on top of the flooring, or do I but the flooring up to the vanity. We are removing all the old flooring.

I would place the vanity on top for a better finished-look.

I hope you guys don't regret not having a traditional toe-kick recess, I think you are going to repeatedly stub your toes on that vanity. You may need to wear steel toe boots while in the bathroom.:)

Just out of curiousity, what kind of flooring?

Planning on going with Starloc Aspen Slate Altura as far as flooring. My wife too thought it should go on top. Guess that is what will happen. I figure we will stub our bare toes too, but just finding a 60 inch vanity is almost impossible, and we did like the style of this one.

thanks guys.

Floating vinyl plank. Don't know much about that brand. Better check the installation rules. Most floating floors say no cabinets on top.

good hint, I will double check:thumbsup:

Now it's a "floating" floor.:)

the question is whether it is bouyant enough to hold up the vanity:) I spoke to starloc today, and just as rusty suggested they do NOt want the vanity on top of the floating floor. thanks for the heads up Rusty. That settles the question. Thats all folks.
