install vanity over existing tile?


I don't want to redo the flooring, but I"m not sure if I can just leave the existing tile in place and put the new vanity / counter on top of the tile. The problem is it seems the tile was laid AFTER the vanity so I can see grout around the vanity. The bathroom vanity is pretty small and tapers in at the bottom so I was hoping to purchase on slight larger vanity that way it would sit on top of the existing tile to avoid having to redo the flooring.

Is that possible or do I have to redo the flooring since the tile goes around the vanity in place now?

I would do what you are planning if it can be done.

What do you need pictures of? The new vanity, the old one? The tile? The tile where it meets the vanity?
