Do you install the tiles for a washroom before you put in the vanity and toilet, or do you do it after?
In order to get a professional looking result, tile should be installed before any fixtures. If you install tile with the fixtures in place you will have to cut around them. This will result in exposed cut edges and gaps, ruining the overall appearance.
The toilet must ALWAYS be lifted and the tile must go under. If it is a complete reno, going under the vanity does gives the floor and cleaner finish with no grout lines along the bottom of the vanity. It will also protect the subfloor against any leaks or water problems that may come along in the future. However you are only changing the flooring and not the vanity, it is fine to have the tile cut around the vanity.

Before- the toilet sits on the new tile. It must be level as well. I went into one place where they complained toilet rocked all the time...New tile was not level, they also chose a large tile but floor was not level so there would have been a lot more problems down the line anyway.
