It’s not all that uncommon to find a pedestal sink in a powder or small bath. They seem to be the ideal thing to use when you don’t have a whole lot of space to work with. But they pose a very singular issue, they don’t offer any storage. Unless you have wall mounted shelves or an actual storage cabinet in your room, there isn’t a specific place to store things like extra toilet paper. And chances are, if you are using a pedestal sink because of your lack of space, adding a cabinet in addition to the sink doesn’t make much sense. Of course you could be using a console sink because you like the clean minimalist aesthetic but is sacrificing much needed storage space worth it? And do you really want your extra rolls of toilet paper out on display?
So what are you to do? You don’t have a lot of space and you don’t want to clutter what little you have to work with up with unnecessary storage bins. The answer is easy – go with a vanity.
I know what you are thinking, wouldn’t a vanity take up more space? Depending on the style and size, not really. That’s one of the great advantages about our vanities, they come in a wide array of sizes to fit any space. What’s even better, some vanities even come in a compact size of 18″ inches if the 24″ inch is not small enough.
If we still haven’t won you over with our sizing options then consider this, most of our vanities are available in a wall mounted version. Wall mounted vanities are not only a trend on the rise but they help make the overall space feel larger by eliminating bulky legs and feet, keeping the space below the drawers open and free.
And if it’s aesthetics that you are worries about, we have a wide variety of contemporary vanities that are equally as sleek and minimal as a console sink. Like our Melbourne for example, its full overlay drawers eradicate unsightly lines giving it a consistently clean and polished look without sacrificing storage.
Any way you look at it, the best thing for a small bathroom is a vanity. A console sink may save on space but it lacks the functionality that a vanity provides. With a vanity, not only do you get storage space but you also get a handmade work of art that is as practical as it is stunning.
