If you're renovating the bathroom and want to maximize your space, you can’t beat the timeless beauty of a pedestal sink. Just be wary of the lack of storage space and complicated installation. Here is some more information.
The cost of a pedestal sink depends on a few key factors: manufacturer, style, and materials used. You can spend as little as $100 to over $1,500, depending on your preference. Installation is a very complicated process though, so it’s recommended that you get in touch with a bathroom contractor for more information.
The durability of a pedestal sink depends primarily on the manufacturer and quality of installation. Generally, they should last the lifetime of your home.
No, if the pedestal sink is properly installed and anchored, it’s not necessary to seal it to the wall. If, however, you want to prevent moisture from accumulating where it shouldn’t, you can use a silicon sealant around the sink. Beware that if you try to remove it, the drywall will most likely come with it.
The plumbing actually goes inside the pedestal, which is why it can be tough job, even for a plumber. Make sure you contact a competent professional, and avoid disaster by not trying the job yourself.
The first pedestal sink was constructed from enameled cast iron, but by 1915, they were most commonly made from vitreous china. They are still a very popular choice for half-baths today.
