Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


There are jigsaw blades which are designed to cut on the down stroke for cutting the Laminate. A regular up cut one may chip.

A regular skil saw will do an okay job on the edges if you cut from the backside. Sharp blade is required.

Skil circular or jigsaw, or doesn't matter? Assuming jigsaw would be needed to cut sink hole out?

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


Skil saw from the back side for straight cuts along the side and jigsaw with down cut blade for the sink hole.
Add some 5/8 or 3/4 material to the underside if the lip interferes with the doors. Can be glued/nailed to the case or the top.

Anyone have thoughts on a creative back and aide splashes? Don't want to tile.

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


Re back and side splashes, so you have any scraps left that are long enough?

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


Cultured marble comes to mind ? Maybe make them from the scrap sink cut out, a little heat from a hair dryer will usually allow removal of the laminate. Just remember to to remove ALL the old adhesive before re-use.

just sayin

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


Mirrors all around? At least on the front wall you could go with a wide one corner to corner.
Then a molding along the sides.

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


That's what was there originally, a mirror that took up the whole front wall. There were some "vinyl" strips (maybe 4" width) that were glued on to the walls and had a stainless metal border. Unfortunately I don't have enough scrap left to use the laminate from the cuts to finish the whole project and as luck would have it, this counter is no longer available so I can't buy another 4' section to cut up and work with. Might have to end up tiling it after all. Anyone know of any decorative vinyl strips like i'm talking about? Something similar to what was used previously?

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


Yup. I have used them before to install Arborite as back splash. Not sure what they are called, or if they even have a specific name. That was years ago. 20 or more.

Tile would be your best bet.

Re: Ways to Conceal Vanity Gaps


You have a pretty good fit.
A nice caulk joint would look good and not like a patch job.
