It is very easy to fit a sink into a bathroom cabinet yourself. Here, it is a "homemade" piece of furniture, but it is just as obvious with a manufactured piece of furniture.

Step 1 - I gather the tools and the parts to be assembled

To install a sink, I obviously need… a sink, but also a key, a colored adhesive tape, putty adhesive that I insert in a gun provided for this purpose (2nd photo), a small spatula and a cloth.

Step 2 - I spot the water inlets

The washbasin taps must communicate with the water inlet pipes. Hot water is on the right, cold water is on the left. I locate them inside the cabinet in order to place the hole in the sink, in which the taps will be inserted, above the water inlets.

Step 3 - I make a marking to guide my work

I put the sink for the first time "cold" in order to put marks with the colored adhesive tape. I put a mark on the sink and one on the cabinet where it should come to rest. It is important to be precise: when the putty is applied, the sink can no longer be moved.

Step 4 - I put the adhesive putty

In order to seal the sink, I turn it over and I put a continuous thread of putty all around, using the gun.

Step 5 - I place the sink permanently

I turn the sink over to place it in the hole in the cabinet provided for this purpose. I manage to make sure that the marks coincide perfectly.

Step 6 - I clean the residual glue

Using the spatula and cloth, I quickly remove the putty that overflows from the sink before it dries.

Step 7 - I put the taps

I choose a tap with two hoses that fit on the water supply piping. I take a wrench the size of the bolts to fix on the hoses. The hot water pipe is marked with red tape and the cold water pipe with blue tape.

Step 8 - I fix the tap to the basin

I insert the hoses in the hole provided to receive the taps and I fix these to the piping which is under the sink. I am careful to put the pipe marked in red on the right and the one with the blue mark on the left.

Step 9 - I install the drain system

On the back of the tap is a hole in which I insert the pull which will activate the draining of the sink. I put the plug in the sink.

Step 10 - I put the siphon

Finally, I put the siphon under the sink by screwing it in and I connect it to the bathroom drain hose. My sink is installed and ready to work. If you do not have a cabinet to receive your sink, you will need a pedestal sink. In this case, the column supports the sink.
