Extending countertop over toilet tank

8 years ago

A friend of mine is considering a full bathroom remodel of her secondary bathroom. Currently, she has a single sink vanity cabinet that doesn't offer a lot of counter space. When remodeling, she's considering extending a narrow run of the vanity countertop material along the wall. This means the counter would be over the top of the toilet tank. There might be about 3-4" clearance between the top of the tank and the countertop. My friend's concern about doing this is whether that's going to cause issues should she (or a plumber) ever need to get into the toilet tank to make a repair. She's seen this done so often, though, that she wonders if she's worried for nothing. Thoughts?
