Although the biggest disadvantage of pedestal sinks is the fact that they don’t offer any storage, they also offer a unique advantage, that of style. They can’t really be compared with anything else. In this case, the design is simple, robust and solid, a great way to stand out without being too obvious.
Black makes a perfect base color for a modern sculptural, geometric sink. The different face angles allow light to play off the black beautifully, making the fixture stand out, even against black walls.
It’s easier to make a sink blend in when its design is simple and solid. Take these marble freestanding sinks for example. They match the floor and the wall behind them, becoming one with the decor. Similar, a freestanding sink can become a focal point or a statement piece for the bathroom.
