If you feel as if your bathroom has been depressingly left behind, maybe it’s time to update your bathroom a little bit. There could be many reasons why you should remodel or renovate your bathroom. First, if you would compare the costs of renovating a bathroom to a kitchen renovation, there is no doubt that you’d be able to save more with the former. Bathrooms have become a homeowner’s favorite for renovation projects because the smaller space makes it easier to renovate and at a less costly price. Second, any home improvement project done in your house can effectively increase the overall value of your house which is good if you plan to sell your house in the future.
If you are planning to conduct a renovation project on your bathroom, make sure to pay close attention to your bathroom sink. Your sink provides you with a lot of conveniences and if you have a small bathroom, it is where you can free up some space.
When it comes to the style of the sink, there are actually a lot of different styles you can choose from. One of the most popular styles of sink is probably the pedestal. Pedestal sinks have been around for quite some time now, providing class and sophistication to a bathroom. The pedestal sink has continuously risen and fallen from popularity but in recent years have begun to resurface and make a comeback.
Pedestal sinks mainly consist of two pieces: stylish bathroom wash basins that may seem like they have limited counter space but recent models have carved out a flat space for makeup items and razors; and a pedestal or ‘leg.’ When it comes to the pedestal, contrary to popular belief, pedestals do have some form of wall support aside from the pedestal itself.
They are best suited for bathrooms that have limited spaces like powder rooms or half-baths. Pedestal sinks are also suited for period-style bathrooms where the bathroom feels as if it was from another time.
If you prefer to do self-installation without the aid of professionals, you would find that pedestal sinks are easy to work with.
