A stylish pedestal sink is a practical addition to a smaller bathroom. These sleek sinks have a vintage-inspired look and a clean, simple silhouette. Is floor space limited in your half bath? A small pedestal sink will take up far less room than a bulky vanity cabinet. Going for a period look in your powder room? Pedestal sinks add a distinctive vintage charm. You can also use two pedestal sinks in place of a double vanity for an open and airy look in a larger bathroom.
Pedestal sinks consist of two parts: a basin and a pedestal base that provides support and helps to conceal plumbing. When positioning your new pedestal sink, make sure it has a strong wall behind it for additional support. Unlike vanity cabinets, pedestal bathroom sinks have no storage space. While they don’t have full countertops, many pedestal sinks do have an apron surrounding the basin where you can place small items such as soap or toothbrushes.
