I get the question from time to time as to are pedestal sinks better then others. As a plumber right away I say “NO”. I tell them pedestal sinks are hard to clean and hard to work with. We all agree pedestal sinks looks great but are just not useful. If your installing one in your master bathroom or kids bathroom there’s absolutely no reason to do so. The only place to ever have a pedestal sink “for show” is in your front hallway bathroom.
As a plumber other bathroom sinks are more reasonable and more functional. Cabinet space is a wonderful plus to any bathroom to hide all your clutter from your company. Unclogging a regular sinks is easy cause your dealing with more space. Deep clogs in pedestal sinks will require pulling of the unit and then having to re-install it after the clog is fixed. Typically, pedestals will cost more money to buy and maintain. If the sleek look is what your after then it’s the perfect sink for your needs.
