Pedestal Bathroom Sinks

Choosing a bathroom sink may seem like an easy task but you should keep in mind that there are different types of sinks and each offer its own benefits. If you have a smaller bathroom for instance, pedestal bathroom sinks are an excellent choice. They allow you to add a beautiful sink to your bathroom and take up much less space than traditional vanity sinks. However, choosing the best sink for your bathroom depends on more than just how much space you have available. There are a few other things that you will need to consider when determining what specific type of sink is best for your individual needs.

Pedestal bathroom sinks add a bit of sophistication to any bathroom. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be purchased from many different retailers. Pedestal sinks are typically sold in two different pieces. You receive the sink itself and the pedestal for attaching that sink. It is important that you securely attach the sink and the pedestal to the wall as per your instructions to ensure that the sink does not fall or break. Many feel that pedestal sinks are simply not sturdy enough for most bathrooms, particularly those with small children. However, if you properly attach the sink and the pedestal then there is no reason why you cannot enjoy a beautiful pedestal sink and security at the same time.

Pedestal bathroom sinks are the most commonly chosen sink type today. They are seen in many luxury bathrooms, although they are certainly not the most expensive choice that you can make. They are typically made from porcelain and can be found in a variety of colors and designs that will allow you to completely customize your bathroom. You have to bear in mind that pedestal sinks do not have a cabinet under the sink area like you see on vanity sinks. If you have storage problems and need the space underneath the sink for storing towels, cleaning agents or other products then a pedestal design may not be the best choice for your situation. You can however, purchase a small cabinet or other furnishing that will give you the storage space that you need. Many consumers place small dresser type furnishings or armoires in the bathroom to provide the storage space that is needed. This allows you to enjoy the pedestal sink and not worry about where to keep certain items that would normally be stored in the vanity cabinet.

You can purchase pedestal bathroom sinks at home improvement stores as well as many hardware stores and specialty shops. The internet also offers many websites where you can purchase a pedestal sink in a wide range of colors, sizes and shapes and have it delivered directly to your home. You should ensure that you purchase from a reputable dealer if you are buying online. You want to be certain that you can return the sink for a replacement should it be damaged during shipment. Check to see what the return policy is whether you purchase online or at a traditional store.  Many offer replacements if the sink is cracked or otherwise damaged during installation. If you are unable or unsure of how to install the pedestal sink yourself you can hire a plumber or contractor to do the job for you. This ensures that the sink is properly installed and ready to use and that it does not become damaged during the installation process.

Pedestal bathroom sinks come in a range of shapes and sizes as well as costs. You can find many low end products for less than $100 while more luxurious pedestal sinks can run you an easy $500 or more. If budget is an issue then take some time and research the various name brands and prices online before you purchase. You can compare prices and choose the sink design and color that you want as well.
