The pedestal sink has greatly increased in popularity.
Traditionally those with a victorian look have been favored, and are still popular with their nostalgic and
romantic good looks. These are the natural complement to a clawfoot bathtub.
More recent versions have been added. There are now porcelain
bowls, or bowls of other compositions that are held up by pedestals made of wrought iron, chrome or stainless steel
and other materials. Some of these even have some added shelf space
These stylish sinks can add both real space and visual space and be a great addition
especially to a small bathroom. The one downside is the lack of surface space when grooming. There is little space
to place grooming needs such as shaving supplies or a curling iron.
This could be remedied somewhat by the addition of a porcelain shelf above the sink
or one that is the same material and style in keeping with the sink.
