Sink Sizing


Picking out pedestal sinks for Christian's old farm house bathrooms was challenging because although they fit "on paper", the first sink looked too big in this space. I found a Rejuvenation Parisian pedestal sink on clearance at a "Bargain Basement" appliance store, which is designed for narrow spaces while having wider sides for resting things. The mounting bracket does not fit, but we will drill the holes larger to work. The two white porcelain curved legs will be a nice look on the Carrara Marble; large hexagonal tiled floor to come.


The first sink fits nicely in the more square master bathroom. The large vintage mirrored medicine cabinet above it will be raised up or changed to a smaller one and this sink will sit on basket-weave Carrara Marble tiles.


Both sinks have a back splash which makes the need for tiling or paneling behind them optional. Bathroom inspiration photos below via Pinterest...


Christian will keep the newly installed bath tubs upstairs; surrounding them with subway tiles and gray grout.




The master bathroom will have honed Carrara Marble basket weave floor tiles like these...

might have a Swedish nightstand next to it...
