Plumber: Create a fancy space under a bathroom sink with a console sink setup


Q: Ed: We plan to update both of our bathrooms. The goal is to give our bathrooms a high-end look by using creative plumbing fixtures. I’ve seen bathroom sinks called console sinks, but I don’t fully understand that concept. Can you explain?

A: To get a full understanding of a console tabletop sink, let’s start by going over a few basic bathroom sink styles. You’ll see shortly why I want to mention these other sink styles and how a console sink is related to all of them.

Wall-hung sinks anchor to the wall and provide open space below. A pedestal sink gets support from a decorative base. A vanity sink mounts on a closed storage box.

This brings us to the console bathroom sink concept, which can include features from all these sinks. It’s basically a high-end sink top mounted on a decorative open stand with two or four legs supporting the sink. Not only does it look nice, but usually the stand includes added shelving and even a pullout drawer or storage basket.

Bottom line: If you want a high-end bathroom sink that can make a decorative splash, check out a console sink setup.
