We at Mosby Building Arts typically remove the sink, vanity and toilet to install ceramic tile on a bathroom floor. A potential water leak or water spill under the vanity will therefore not affect the wood of the vanity cabinet and the appearance is more crisp and professional.However, many tile installers take a brief approach and apply the tile around all existing fixtures so they don’t handle any plumbing.

The vanity height is traditionally 30″ to the finished height above the finished floor. In more recent years we now install taller vanities at heights of 33″ and even 36″ above the finished floor at the request of homeowners who don’t like bending down so far. We have also lowered the vanity height in past years for shorter folks and children. Any height between 30″ and 36″ is acceptable but most lavatory heights are between 30″-33″.
