Vanity/Plumbing question

Posted by meanmom08 (My Page) on

I should probably put this in the plumbing section, but thought I'd try here first. The vanity I'm replaceing is a 42".old styled site-built vanity. I'll have to go with a 36" with fillers on the side. I'd like to get a vanity with 2 drawers on the right side which is the side the wall is on,. There is no wall on the left side - just the toilet. My question is: I won't be able to center the vanity over plumbing outlet (whatever it's called) because I'm assuming the drawers will be in the way. Can the plumbing be moved a few inches to the left without incurring a big plumbing bill? Is this a simple thing or a major thing?

It depends.

If you are lucky, you may be able to sneak the drain lines in without moving the pipes in the wall and without conflicting with the drawers.

Sometimes shortening a drawer is easier and less expensive than altering plumbing, but then again, it depends on what the drawers and plumbing pipes are made of.

RE: Vanity/Plumbing question

Our plumbing was originally set for a vanity that would abut the wall, but we decided to try to move the vanity over a few inches to give the person using that side a little more elbow room. We were able to move it about 3 inches with no adjustments to plumbing or vanity. But as Trebuchet said, it depends on your plumbing and your vanity!
