VANITY INSTALLATION
1. Determine your vanity placement and mark the area on the wall
where it will be installed.
wall studs
mounting
rail
screws
screws
2. Locate and mark the location of the studs to which you will fasten
your vanity. You can find studs by listening for a solid sound as you
knock on the wall or by using a stud finder.
Tip: If the studs in your bathroom do not line up to the mounting
location for your vanity, wood blocking can be installed between the
studs using standard 2 x 4’s. If wood blocking needs to be installed
behind the finished wall, we recommend consulting a professional
if you are unfamiliar with this type of installation.
3. If your vanity cabinet has a solid back, mark and drill holes to
accommodate drain pipes and supply pipes as necessary.
4. Place the vanity in the installation location. Verify that the vanity cabinet is level. If the vanity is not level, use vanity
feet (if included) or wooden shims to adjust as necessary.
5. Attach the vanity to the wall by screwing through the mounting rail in the back of the vanity cabinet into the wall
studs.
Note: For under-mount sinks, go to “Sink Installation Instructions” below before continuing to step 6.
6. Install the integral sink/vanity top by applying a dot of silicone sealant on the corners of the vanity. Position the
vanity top onto the vanity and press firmly into place. Wipe away any excess sealant with a damp cloth.
7. If your vanity top has a separate side and/or back-splash, place a bead of adhesive silicone sealant on the back
and press firmly into place.
8. Fill any gaps between the wall and splash, and vanity top and splash with silicone sealant. Wipe away excess
sealant with a damp cloth.

SINK INSTALLATION
UNDERMOUNT SINK INSTALLATION
1. Carefully turn the counter top over, resting it on a soft, stable surface to prevent damage.
2. Position the undermount sink over the sink cutout on the counter top. Make sure the sink is centered with the faucet
hole and is evenly spaced between the bolt holes.
3. Draw an outline of the sink on the counter top.
4. Remove the sink from the counter top. Apply a generous bead of silicone sealant around the perimeter of the sink
rim.
5. Carefully place the sink upside down on the counter top, positioning it within the outline.
6. At each of the bolt holes in the counter, attach sink clips by placing the long end of the bracket flat against the sink
lip. Screw the wing bolts through the brackets and bolt holes and tighten snugly.

adjusting.
