Pedestal wash-basin sits atop a slim base. The base can be cylindrical or taper as it reaches the floor. It exudes style and grandeur, but it obviously lack storage capability. For a bathroom with limited storage, or for a bathroom heavily used for morning preparation, the pedestal is not the best choice. Pedestal basins fit well in bathrooms with high ceilings or striking architectural detail.
It is a kind of basin designed to be installed on top of a counter or for use with vanity units. A variety of the countertop basin is a vessel or vessel-type basin that assumes that appearance of a large vessel or bowl mounted on top of the counter or another surface.
It is similar to an undercounter sink in that it appears to be a depression on the countertop. It is installed on top of the counter after an appropriately-sized hole on the counter is made.
Affixed to the wall, with no countertop or stand beneath, the wall-hung sink basin is an efficient use of limited space. For smaller secondary bathrooms, the wall-hung may be the perfect choice. Like the pedestal, it does not offer any storage capacity. It is also rather plain. Wall-hung basins vary in size, but they tend to be smaller than other styles. For bathrooms with a lot of traffic, or for those used by children, this may not be a useful option because of the lack of counter space.
It is a kind of washbasin attached to the underside of a countertop. This gives the appearance of having a counter with a depression that serves as a sink. The top of the sink is covered by the countertop, making the inside the basin the only part visible.
It is hung from a wall at a desired height. It is appropriate for use in small bathrooms, or in any situation where a lot of counter space is not needed. One drawback with wall-mount basins is that installation is not advisable on timber frame stud walls, depending on weight. The plumbing is exposed, however, it may be hidden behind paneling.
Set atop a countertop or cabinet, the bowl basins appear almost separate from the underlying surface. Resembling a salad bowl, a marble carving or a deep, metal dish, bowl basins can be made from myriad material. Because of the way the bowl is installed, it tends to sit higher than average basins. Its height also requires faucets that can reach up over the edge, distinguishing the bowl basin's appearance.
