36 Inch Bathroom Vanity – Bathroom vanities that are too low make routine things like drying your hair or putting makeup more difficult to complete. Raising your bathroom van to 36 inches lifts the top of the vanity to a more comfortable height. It is a do-it-yourself project for those familiar and comfortable using power tools. This project uses standard tools that are found in most homes. To facilitate the work by taking your measures to your local home improvement center and having the wood cut to size for you.
Measure the height of your existing toilet and subtract that number from 36 to determine how it should be added to your toilet to reach the desired height of 36 inches with a lot of extra height. Measure the width and depth of your vanity and subtract 8 inches from both measurements to determine the size of your base. Cut 2 by 4 tables with the size of your base. Cut two pieces of the width of the base and two the depth of the base. Adjust them in place so they create a box.
Measure inside the base and cut two additional pieces of 2-by-4 to this size for use as reinforcement pieces. Light the vanity on its back and the center of the base on the bottom of the vanity. Screw through the base and into the bottom of the toilet. Paint the base the same color as your vanity so it mixes with the dresser. Adjust your vanity upright and measure. Your vanity top should now be 36 inches tall.
