Horizontal tile lines keep the eye moving around this bright white transitional bathroom. Small stripes of green and blue tiles add a playful energy to the space. The ceramic white tile mimics the white pedestal sink and shower base and makes the space feel crisp and bright.
Square brown, white, beige and grey mosaic tiles have been used on the walls and around the bathtub in this small bathroom. An arched mirror, medicine cabinet, pedestal sink and toilet are also in the room. In the shower, two built-in shelves providing plenty of storage.
Built-in ledges house beauty products in this Spanish powder room, a convenient feature that increases the functionality of the space. A pedestal sink has a unique, decorative iron base, and its intricate pattern is echoed on the stenciled wall. A floor-to-ceiling mirror visually expands the room.
This powder room is filled with a bright, eclectic wallpaper. Simple fixtures keep the focus on the bold wallpaper, so it's not to overwhelming to the small space. The pedestal sink serves as a fixed focal point to anchor the room. Crisp white trim pulls the look together.
Neutral marbled tile covering the lower half of this bathroom wall compliment the neutral tones in the slightly larger floor tiles. A decorative wood molding adds texture to the design and matches the wood finishes of the mounted cabinet. A white pedestal sink and toilet finish the traditional and timeless look.
To give the bathroom more personality, TerraCotta Design swaps out the plain pedestal sink for an Asian-themed vanity and replaces the oval mirror with an expansive frameless mirror that enlarges the room. TerraCotta keeps the wood flooring and repaints the walls to transform the room without going over budget.
At the end of the mudroom, a door opens into the powder room. Because the home is near the water, the designers decked the space with wallpaper that features fish, octopus and other sea creatures. A large white-trimmed mirror and pedestal sink easily stand out against the blue and green.
The homeowner's only request for this space was to have a bathroom that was cool and unusual. With that in mind, the designers used a green metallic hexagonal wallpaper paired with a traditional pedestal sink and gold bull sculptures on the wall to give the transitional bathroom a funky vibe.
A mixture of tiles brings texture and visual interest to this transitional powder room. The flooring features a combination of octagon tiles and mosaic tiles, which also continue up the wall halfway. A sleek pedestal sink takes up little floor space, while a large mirror helps to expand the room.
Storage Dilemma: You have a bathroom with a pedestal sink or vanity with limited counterspace. Solution: For this bathroom by Criner Remodeling, a niche behind the toilet with built-in glass shelves creates a much-needed home for grooming essentials and framed photos.

The master bath was dark, had no storage and just didn’t function well for this growing family.
A floating white vanity was selected versus a traditional sink cabinet to give the illusion of more space. The new vanity with drawers already provided so much more storage than the old pedestal sink, but designer Susie Herr and her team gave them even more storage with an extra wide inset medicine cabinet.
A larger footprint made room for a double vanity (before, there was only a pedestal sink). The cabinets are dark blue to fit in with the blues throughout the rest of the house, while graphic porcelain tiles from TileBar keep things lively. “James makes fun of me for using this bathroom instead of the one in our master suite, but it’s just so new and nice,” says Cristina.
For the bathroom of a longtime customer-turned-friend, designer Katie Gagnon created a unique storage unit for the space between a pair of pedestal sinks. “This was a long-term project, and we spent a lot of time curating the perfect pieces for her ever-evolving space,” says Gagnon. “This storage cabinet was one we had custom made by an artisan we work with. The door is a vintage salvaged piece that had the original paint sanded off and we added an iron cremone bolt for some contrast and visual interest.”
This powder room features a rustic-chic design focus, with walls clad from floor to ceiling in rich green mosaic tile. A sculptural vessel sink rests atop a wood pedestal, hand-crafted from cedar fencing.
With a long trough sink, an oven and range, and a beautiful custom vent hood with hooks for storing pots, this spacious quartz-topped island is made for serious cooking. The concrete-capped pedestal is used for displaying food and beverages.
With their healthy, vegetarian lifestyle, this kitchen is truly put to work every day. The design features two islands: one island is reserved for seating and storage, while the other houses a prep sink and a very special butcher block pedestal that Lauren Levant designed especially for this project. Made from her sketch, a local woodworker created an original butcher block pedestal from a fallen local tree, with a removable chopping block set into it.
Designer Jennifer Gilmer wanted a large freestanding tub and a shower in her master bath, but lacked the room to put them side by side. A trip to Japan inspired her to combine the two in an open space — this arrangement is common there. The light-flooded modern bathroom, with black mosaic tiled floor and insets and tan subway tile walls, features a deep sink, ceiling-mounted rain shower and oval-shaped pedestal bathtub.
