What is a pedestal sink?
It has a basin that is primarily supported by a freestanding pedestal leg.

Advantages:
It’s a great sink to choose if your bathroom is small, or if you want a nostalgic look. It’s also very easy to clean around.

In Scotland the most popular type of bathroom sink is the basin with pedestal.

The pedestal usually fits into a recess on the underside of the basin and is attached to the floor using hidden screw-holes on the inside at the bottom. The basin is fixed to the wall using screws underneath the basin or sometimes they are supplied with hidden brackets.

This type of bathroom sink can be installed on any wall, as most of the basin weight is supported by the pedestal. The pedestal also helps to hide the supply and waste pipes attached to the basin when viewed from the front.

You cannot usually mix and match bathroom basins and pedestals as each basin has a shaped recess underneath the bowl which corresponds to the shape of the pedestal. As pedestal shapes vary from make to make it means you cannot mix and match between makes and models (the pedestal is usually one of the cheapest items in a bathroom suite so there is very little reason the swap).
