Vinyl Planks in Bathroom

Hello,

I've been searching for a week now and still have not come up with a definite answer, so I am hoping to get some advice from some real professionals I bought this vanity from Home Depot. We want to put these "Luxury" Vinyl Planks down, but can't find an answer as to put them down after I take the old vanity out and place the new vanity on top of them, or if I should just install the vanity and place these Vinyl Planks down after and 'up to' the vanity and toilet. I don't mind taking the toilet out and installing these planks to the 'donut,' but I don't want to if it is going to 'secure' this floor and cause it to buckle.

So, what are the opinions here? Vinyl Planks first, and then the vanity and toilet -- or install the vanity and keep the toilet in and just install up to and around these things.

Cant post links yet so here are the text links.

vinyl planks can be installed either way. In new construction I put them down before the cabinets, for renos I cut to the cabinets. Because it's possible to cut planks very precisely, there is little difference. Either way, you need to pay a lot of attention to prep, the floor needs to be 100% perfectly smooth. This is usually done with a combination of sanding and patching and a difficult DIY task. seriously, even a grain of sand is enough to telegraph through some planks.

I always do a full spread of pressure activated adhesive even if the manufacturer rates the planks for loose lay.

I also refuse to install any click together planks, they have proven over and over to be a bad idea.

Thank you, I am going to replace the vanity first, and then cut the flooring around the vanity, but under the toilet. I will post some before/after pictures. Wish me luck!
