We're going to install ceramic tile in the bathroom, replace the vinyl. The vinyl extends under the vanity. Do I need to remove the vanity to remove the vinyl? Or can I just leave the vinyl down and tile over it and right up next to the vanity? Thanks for the help with this!
You can do it either way and it will work, however it will be a more professional job if the vanity is removed. It's really not that difficult so I would consider it.
With a minimum of 1/4" thick backerboard and the thickness of the tile & thinset, you'll be adding about 5/8" to 3/4" to the height of the floor. This will raise the floor in relation to the height of the vanity, in effect lowering the vanity by that 3/4". Keeping the vanity in place will also mean more effort to cut and trim both the backerboard and the tile.
Unless you have more complications like a mirror sitting directly on the vanity top I would recommend removing the vanity first.
I agree, just remove the vanity unless it takes a lot more effort, and hassle, to do so.
Yes, better to remove the vanity!!!
