I love American Standard's Retro Pedestal Sink (Lowe's), but I'm concerned it may be too difficult to install it to the studs on the wall. It will replacing an earlier vanity. Yes, there are studs centered off of the plumbing. But do I we have to cut a hole in our wall? Or is there a plate or something that we can put on top of the wall? Is it that difficult? I've heard that it is. Secondly, this same item also has a wooden stand rather than a pole under it. If I use this stand, do I still have to install the sink to the wall? Please write soon, as my project is moving like a tortoise! Thanks!!!

Yes, you are correct. It must still be anchored to the wall studs. If the studs don't align with your mounting then what I do is chop out a section of wall and attach blocking between the studs for something for the sink to grab on to. Then replace the wallboard and attach the fixture.
