The powder room’s white pedestal sink has a deep V-shaped basin and a contemporary style. It’s paired with a mirror that has a linen white wood frame with a catalyzed conversion varnish that offers a durable moisture-resistant finish.
When setting up a large table, it's important to have items at several different heights so everything is visible and easy to reach. If a cake pedestal isn't handy, turn a wide-brimmed bowl upside down and stack a plate on top. Voila! Instant pedestal.
This bathroom gets more of a vintage feel with pedestal sinks and wood walls. It is tucked into the upper level of a farmhouse and was designed by Michelle Fries. She made up for the lost under-sink storage by using open shelving with baskets to hold supplies.
Eighteenth-century stone pedestals hold luminaries strung with bamboo and seedpods rather than crystals, while an antique Murano glass chandelier hangs overhead in the entrance to this eclectic living room. The blue-green Fortuny draperies, overpainted with gold, add metallic gleam to the space.
An easy way to increase storage space when it's time to upgrade your washer and dryer: pedestal drawers. Most manufacturers offer versions that perfectly fit their models. Plus, the added height makes loading and unloading a little easier.
