How Much Does It Cost to Install a Bathroom Sink or Vanity?
Installing a new sink or vanity can transform the appearance of your home and make your kitchen or bathroom a more luxurious place to hang out.
Fortunately, these projects don't have to cost a fortune. Understanding what factors affect sink and vanity installation costs can help you choose the right option for your wallet.
According to Porch.com, it usually costs around $460 to install a vanity. Most people pay somewhere between $345 and $530. These figures include the cost of the unit itself and installation labor. How much you'll pay for a bathroom vanity itself largely depends on the quality and size of your new model.
Installing a premade vanity is usually the cheapest option, and you can pick up a small unit for around $100. However, premium premade vanities with additional features could cost as much as $2,600 or more. Custom-made vanities are significantly more expensive and cost between $500 and $2,800.
Labor for vanity installation usually costs between $200 and $1,000. This range includes the cost of removing an existing unit and preparing the space for a new installation.
Most homeowners pay between $500 and $1,000 for bathroom sink installation or replacement. Installing a pedestal sink is slightly pricier, costing $400 to $1,200 on average.
You should expect to pay anywhere from $75 to $2,000 for the cost of the sink itself. The exact price comes down to the sink’s material and type. You could spend significantly more if you want premium materials or a complex installation. For example, a console bathroom sink could set you back as much as $1,500. A bronze or glass sink may also fall toward the upper end of the price range.
Most plumbers charge between $75 and $150 per hour to install a new bathroom sink. You should budget an additional $30 to $150 if you also need your contractor to remove an existing sink.
