Bathroom Vanity Install and HVAC Vent question


Hello,
We are putting in a new vanity that is wider than the one that is there now.
We are going from 25" or 30". We purchased a vanity with legs that allows air to flow from the vent into the bathroom.

My question is:
I have been seeing a lot of posts where the vent is in the floor and you can redirect the air with reflectors and such, but what do you do when the vent is in the base of the wall?

Some friends have told us that we can do this and the air will flow under the vanity but we aren't sure how to cover the vent with a register and have the vanity flush with the wall.

Open to any ideas.

Thanks

Re: Bathroom Vanity Install and HVAC Vent question


You seem to be talking about a forced hot air duct - not a vent which means outgoing. You can block some of it, but it means deciding how much you can block and maintain the heat in the room. My bathroom was above the furnace and had to keep the register closed all winter, and even then there was enough heat. Closing or blocking can make it noisier too. And since you are going to cover it with a cabinet, you won't see it so any cheap register cover will work and you can even cut the cover to fit.
A description of your cabinet would help. By legs, do you mean leg posts? How high are they and will the cabinet low enough for the trap to fit?
Is the air humidified? Cheap mdf case and veneer may see some moisture damage from the air only. Metal leg posts may see rust.
