Question

I am replacing an old vanity with a new one that is a different shape. When I tore out the old one I realized it was not attached to the floor. Is this correct? Do I just set the new vanity on the floor or is there a way to anchor it to the slab? The old one had a wall-legnth of counter top with a set in sink. This one will have a cultured marble sink top that fits the top of the vanity. I know there must be some way to keep it from moving.

Thanks for your help!

Cool

Use a stud finder to mark the wall studs. Sit the vanity exactly where you want it. Level it with shims, if necessary.
Screw the vanity base through its back frame to the studs. No need to attach it to the floor (but you can put quarter-round molding around it at the floor for looks if you like).
The drain pipe should hold down the sink to the vanity base, but you can use dabs of caulk around the top edge of the base just for insurance. It shouldn't move.
Good Luck!
Mike
