Anchoring island cabinets into tile floor
 
People,

Hows the best way to anchor down some cabinets which will be an island into a ceramic tile floor? Tile is on concrete slab. Im thinking , since the base of each cabinet is not even exposed (the floor is about 3-4" above base) that only way is to drill a hole into inside cabinet, at base, toward the tile, then drill into tile, then screw in a long screw. Seems goofy. Ideas welcome.

Maybe you could use construction adhesive.

Trying to picture how the floor can be above the cabinet.
Got a picture of that cabinet?

Screw some 2x4's flat side down to the floor to act as cleats. Then put the cabinets over the cleats then screw through the toe kick into the cleat.

" (the floor is about 3-4" above base) " You tell me.

the floor of the cabinet itself, not the cabinet was recessed in the floor. Joe just reads these posts real careful like.
