Usually bathroom cabinets are installed with wash basins, mirrors, faucets, etc. Bathroom cabinets are divided into two types: wall-mounted and floor-standing. The following are different types of bathroom cabinet installation methods and precautions for bathroom cabinet installation.

Lay the cabinet body of the floor-standing bathroom cabinet horizontally, screw the cabinet foot assembly on the fixing piece through the double-ended screw, then lay the cabinet flat and place it in an appropriate position. And adjust to the level by the anchor screw. Check whether the four feet are stable when placed. If they are not on the same horizontal line, the cabinet body will be unevenly stressed and the lines will be distorted, which will not only affect the appearance but also affect the service life.

You can also use expansion screws to install. After the cabinet is installed, align the countertop basin with the wooden hat of the cabinet and adjust and lay it flat.
3. Installation method of side cabinet and shelf
The installation method of side cabinet and shelf is almost the same as the installation method of main cabinet of wall-mounted bathroom cabinet, so I will not repeat the introduction here.

What are the precautions for the installation of bathroom cabinets?
1. Pay attention to the structure
Bathroom cabinets are generally divided into two categories: floor-mounted and wall-mounted. The wall-mounted type means that the main cabinet or mirror is hung on the wall. It is also called split type. This is a good distinction. While the floor-standing type, all stand on the ground, there is not much difference in the use of functions; the floor-standing type can be moved freely, which is slightly more convenient.
2. Pay attention to the material
Bathroom cabinets are made of PVC, stainless steel and solid wood. The price of PVC bathroom cabinets is generally cheaper, but PVC bathroom cabinets have very good water resistance. Therefore, many people like to choose this material. The main part of the solid wood bathroom cabinet is generally solid wood. Because of the poor water resistance of wood, about ten layers of paint are painted on the surface of the solid wood cabinet to effectively reduce the water absorption rate.
3. Pay attention to the price
If you want to check the price, you can choose PVC or stainless steel bathroom cabinets. Friends who are looking for high-end can choose solid wood bathroom cabinets. When choosing solid wood bathroom cabinets, carefully observe whether there are cracks and smell.
4. Pay attention to location
Before laying the floor tiles and wall tiles, confirm the installation position of the bathroom cabinet; since the installation of the bathroom cabinet requires holes in the wall, water inlet and drain holes are also required. Once installed, the position cannot generally be moved. Therefore, confirming the installation position of the bathroom cabinet is a prerequisite before installation.
5. Pay attention to the installation of accessories
The accessories and installation of each bathroom cabinet are different, that is, the punching size (the size of the hole on the wall) of the same model is different, so you can generally install it according to the instructions, but the installation process is basically the same.
