If you want to update your mobile home vanity then this post will show you how. My mom’s mobile home bathroom is undergoing some major remodeling. You can follow along here at the beginning. If you want just a simple and easy vanity update then here’s the spot on how I transformed the regular bathroom vanity into something a little nicer. 🙂
Unfortunately, we lost this home in a fire. So, there will be no further updates. 🙁 Thank you for the views and support.

First the before pictures!
I saw this green formica and just wanted to freshen it up and make it look more modern. To me, it was outdated and I was looking for something a little more sleek. At this stage, changing out the entire vanity sink wasn’t something I even considered. I just wanted a simple cover, and that was it… at first. 😀

The funny thing about these sinks is that they are SO easy to remove. I spent a lot of time trying to cut a perfect piece to go around the sink with zero luck. That’s definitely a trickier area.
It’s doable if you do it in pieces, but I looked beneath the vanity and realized I could remove it so simply.
Just a side note, on mobile home bathrooms, there are tabs underneath the sink that hold it in place, all you have to do is shift the tabs parallel to your sink surround. Then you can easily pull it out after disconnecting your plumbing. I am in no way a home improvement expert, so if I can do this then you can too!
So, I turned off the water, disconnected the plumbing then removed the sink, and set to the side for later. This is how it looks once you remove the sink.
If you are looking for a backsplash or a way to change up your walls then take a peek and my favorite peel and stick tile upgrades.
Afterward, I prepped the surface by giving it a very thorough scrubbing. This step is incredibly important. If you miss something and there’s a speck of dust then it shows up underneath your vinyl, so be absolutely sure it’s pristine and free of dirt/dust.
Next, I measured the vanity and then transferred those measurements to my vinyl.
The one I chose has a white marble look. I got it here on Amazon. I really love it and thought it was perfect for giving the bathroom vanity a fresh and clean look!
Start at the very edge and then work your way out. It’s important to do that as opposed to laying it all down at once because it does take a few tries to position it correctly as well as get any air bubbles out.
Then I cut the center hole with slits and used that as a guide to work my way in.
If you intend to keep your regular sink then, add it back on and reconnect everything. Be sure you check for leaks.
After I replaced the sink, I realized it needed more. This plastic sink just didn’t cut it for me. I also figured since I removed it once then I could do it again, might as well go all the way!
Installing the New Mobile Home Vanity Sink – So Easy!
I really wanted this vanity to shine and pop. So I opted for this new porcelain sink with a Moen faucet in polished nickel.
Love how this looks!
I purchased this round sink from a mobile home supply store online. Take your measurements of the sink opening to make sure you find one that fits just right. I didn’t have to make any extra cuts, so it was so simple to just pop this one in and add the silicone to the rim to prevent leaks.
I also made a little backsplash with the extra vinyl and then attached it with construction adhesive. Add clear silicone to all your edges to seal everything and to ensure water won’t get underneath.
I also painted the bottom in an oil based gray paint. Oil is hard to clean off brushes but I love the way it feels after. The surface is smooth and silkier. It just feels nicer.
Which mobile home vanity is your favorite? 😀
