Take a peek inside our Total Home Remodel project into our kids’ bathroom. You’ve been with us as we installed the Tarkett luxury vinyl tile in the bathroom, the American Standard Princeton Tub and the American Standard Champion 4 Tank Toilet. We just installed the American Standard Generations Vanity. Never installed a vanity and sink before? Check out how to install a vanity and sink below.
Installing American Standard Generations Vanity
By now, the kids bathroom is really shaping up to become a bathroom anyone would like to retreat to.
Not only is this a beautiful piece of furniture for the bathroom but it is built for convenience. The central shelf has a cut out for the plumbing while giving you added storage space inside the vanity. Who couldn’t use more storage in the bathroom?! I love it. Plus, it’s out of sight.
The vanity top was made to fit perfectly with the lower cabinet. Don’t forget- install the faucet first- i know this is a simple thing to say to someone who has done it more than once- but its an important step for the newbie! We installed the Moments Monoblock Faucet from American Standard to match the Moments bathtub faucet we installed in the Princeton bathtub.
As mentioned, the central shelf pulls out for easy drain line and supply line setup.
The vanity top is indeed heavy, but you don’t want it to move- a little bit of caulking goes a long way in connecting the top to the cabinet base.
Check out the gorgeous Generations Vanity installed. The dark chocolate color of the vanity contrasts well with our choice of the Tarkett Permastone Firenze Antique White luxury vinyl tile. This combination will provide our home with a style that will stand strong through the years.
Here is a picture with the slide out step stool open.

You make this stuff look wayyyy too easy!!! lol. It didn’t look this easy when my husband was working on it!! 😛
Love the vanity and think it’s awesome it comes w/it’s own stepstool!!
Wooo hooo to scoring a virtually free bathroom upgrade! The vanity is very pretty, I love espresso color. Way to go American Standard.
i love your picutres – a step by step instruction and i love the color you picked for the bathroom – i love blues anyway but it looks great
Thanks, Molly! It is from the Disney color wheel.
I love the color of this bathroom 🙂
This project was anything but easy. Bathrooms are the hardest and take the longest with all of the plumbing. The easy part was installing this vanity and sink. It just takes a long time tearing out the old, repairing walls, laying new floors, fixing outdated plumbing from 50 years ago…the list goes on and on. The American Standard products are designed for easy installation though, so that was the easy part! 🙂
You make this look so easy. This is a project on my todo list for this summer. Looks good!
I agree, Tammy! The step is just amazing for families with young kids!
That’s the coolest sink ever! I love the step!
I know, Mickey I love it! Having a built-in step saves so many arguments in our house too! Let alone the convenience and safety it has to offer!
That is GORGEOUS! I love the step. I’ve never seen a sink vanity like it and really, really want it. 🙂
