Fantastic (and unusual) Pedestal Sinks

After my last post regarding bathroom tips for the DIY-ers, I thought why not continue the theme? So today's post is all about the pedestal sink!

  Barclay 3-75 Victoria Pedestal Sink

Why choose a pedestal sink over the traditional cabinet or vanity variety? There are a number of reasons when a pedestal sink is beneficial. Firstly, if you're looking to add clean lines, or visually open up your room, a pedestal is right for you. Also, if you're working in a tight space, they take up very little space. Another great benefit is they're super easy to least you can get to all the parts. Take that Dust Bunny's!

While most pedestal sinks are made from non-porous vitreous china in traditional styles like the one shown above, I've scoured the web to bring you a few of my favorites... and I love the nontraditional! 

Copper Pedestal, Frida by Thompson Traders

Available at, this pedestal sink is hand crafted from copper as one piece. I love the chevron design on the inside of the sink basin.  

Quiescence VAN-PD Aspen Pillar Divine Pedestal Sink

Available at, this hand-chiseled gold granite vanity and bowl basin set can add rustic charm, or masculine elegance to your powder room.

        Contemporary Bath Oyster Pedestal Sink

Also from, this glass pedestal sink has a much softer and delicate feel to it. As the manufacturer puts it "This glass is designed to showcase the superlative beauty and clarity of light shining through water like no other bath products. European-inspired glass artisanship meets advanced technology to create beautiful, durable, one-of-a-kind glass designs for most discerning clients." I definitely agree. And as a side note, wouldn't this sink look fabulous set against an elegant glass bead wallpaper?!

Earthen Fantasy Braveness Pedestal Sink, Natural Boulder

Another winner from Quiescence is this natural granite boulder set, which includes a natural granite boulder pedestal, top and basin, adds the feel of nature into your home. You can find more from their line at

Kohler RĂªve™ Pedestal Sink

Lastly is this modern beauty from Kohler. Though made from the traditional non-porous vitreous china, the shape and lines are anything but! I love the clean, crisp lines of this sink. Perfect for an ultra-modern bathroom. To see Kohler's full line, browse though their online catalog.

Not that I expect you to install one of these beauties all on your own, but if you decide that you're up for the challenge, I found a great post online here that will walk you through the process, step-by-step. Have fun!!
