installing pedastal sink

i'm installing a pedastal sink. i'm just wondering what the best way is to anchor the base (to the floor) and the sink (to the wall).

i've read to use lag screws. is that the most common way to attach?

Lag bolts are commonly used for pedestal sinks. Most I have seen have a plate that anchors to the wall for the sink and 2 bolts in the base to hold it in place. Good luck with your project.

I installed one in our bathroom and used lag bolts in the wall, ensuring I hit wall studs for good support. I put a small coat of silicon between the base and sink, to prevent having ceramic to ceramic contact (didn't like that). I didn't put any bolts in the base to floor. Once, the sink was setting on the base and bolted to the wall it seemed to be pretty secure, so decided not to bother with the bolts in the floor. The base is there for decoration and to support the sink, if it locks into the sink, like ours did, it isn't going anywhere.
