37 Practical And Elegant Console Sink Ideas
The search for the perfect bathroom sink can be tiring, especially when you’re working with a small bathroom. You want the style, the storage, and the floor space – and many options require you to sacrifice one of those factors. But actually you don’t need to do that, there’s a sink that will easily fit any bathrooms, and that’s a console sink.
A console bathroom sink is basically a cross between a wall-mounted sink and a pedestal sink. The sink and countertop are mounted to the wall, supported by two or four legs, or freestanding on four legs. The space between the counter and the floor is typically open, though some feature an open shelf or drawer.

What are the pros and cons of a console sink? Such a sink provides sufficient counter space, and you have some spare space under the top and may even place a basket for storage under it if needed. Console sinks feature stylish, open appearance that is airy and this is great for a small bathroom as heavy pieces make it even smaller. Such a sink may also include a shelf, drawer, or towel bar.

The first con is that a console sink is wider than a pedestal one and so it uses more wall space, which can be crucial for a very tight powder room. Exposed plumbing requires an attractive finish (and refinishing, too, of course) and wall-mounted models may require special installation, which will end in more money spent. Such a sink provides less storage space than a standard vanity, and this is what may prevent you from getting one.

What should you consider when choosing a console sink? Consider the height, depth, and width when choosing a console bathroom vanity, especially for a space-challenged bathroom. Some consoles bases are available in extra-wide, double configurations with three or five legs to support two sinks. Many consoles are traditionally styled, though it’s easy to find contemporary styles as well. The sink and counter are typically one integrated piece; some styles feature an above-counter sink. Many consoles do not offer any storage; some people prefer to store essentials beneath the console in a decorative basket. However, you can easily find consoles with a shelf or two, a drawer, or integrated towel bars. Should you require more storage space, you may have to consider adding a linen tower or other storage cabinet. There are more points to consider, just like with any sink, so keep them in mind, too, before you opt for one.
