A Paperhanger’s Favorite Kind of Pedestal Sink

Digital ImageWhy do I love this sink? Because it’s not there!

Pedestal sinks are the Devil to hang around, with tricky curves, the potential to tear wallpaper, and paste getting smeared all over the porcelain and faucets. I can spend a good half an hour or more, trimming around and under a pedestal sink. Heck, even nice, rectangular vanities can be a pain.

So I was thrilled when this homeowner held off on the installation of her sink, so I could have easy access to the wall. It saved me lots of time, it got her better cuts around the plumbing, and it also means there are no cut edges along the top of the sink, so no worries about splashed water causing the paper to curl.

Now let’s just hope the plumbers don’t damage the wallpaper when they install the sink and toilet!
