WC & Sink fitment


Hi after some advice, am in the process of fitting out an en-suite bathroom. Have completely tiled the floor and am wondering whether the toilet and sink pedestal should go directly onto the tiles or whether I should use silicone between them? Also should I put a silicone bead around the outside of the base after fitment? Not sure if it is the done thing or not.
TIA

Personally I would seal both...kids splashing about (pa rants even), water ingressing & laying stagnant..... a recipe for fungal growth?

Thanks Don, should I also bed the bases in on silicone as well as seal the edges?

The chances are that the silicone will ooze out around the edges if you bed them in & them it would only be a matter of smoothing off with a soapy finger or two ;-))
