Pedestal sinks have remained popular as a more formal and stylish alternative to countertop sinks. Despite their popularity, however, it can be difficult to choose the correct type of sink and install it properly.
Pedestal sinks are typically made of either enameled cast iron or vitreous china. Cast iron sinks tend to be very expensive but are also very durable, while the vitreous china sinks tend to vary in price and quality. Pedestal sinks also come with three different hole configurations that correspond to the particular faucet that you have, or are planning to install. Be sure that you choose a matching sink and faucet configuration. To learn more about the DIY pedestal sink installation process, consult this friendly how-to!
