What Houzz contributors are saying:
Say yes to long and leanIf you really want to reach the floor with your support, but not via a washstand or vanity unit, you could go for a modern reinvention of the traditional pedestal idea, like this.You might imagine something as swanky as this would only come as a bespoke item, but in fact you can buy them for a relatively affordable price off-the-peg from quite a few places. Try Googling ‘stone pedestal basin’ or ‘marble pedestal basin’ and you should be on the right track.This bathroom also solves the problem of where to put the soap when there’s no shelf.

A plain, toning floor that doesn’t vie for attention, black taps to add a bespoke, contemporary edge, and the simple, frameless mirror that echoes the shape of the basin.A bathroom design expert reveals: 3 things I wish my clients knew
