Semi pedestal basin buying guide

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying guides | 7 years ago 2 min read

The semi pedestal basin is a sleek and contemporary choice for modern bathrooms, and comes in a wide array of designs and styles.

This guide will give you an overview of the semi pedestal basins at, and what you need to consider when choosing one.

What is a semi pedestal basin?

This style of basin is similar to a standard pedestal basin, but the pedestal doesn’t extend all the way to the floor. A good way to think of it is as being half way between a full pedestal basin and a wall hung basin. The basin is secured the wall, and the semi pedestal covers up the pipework underneath, creating a clean, modern look.

What styles are there?

Semi pedestal basins are all about contemporary style, whether you’re after a slick, minimalist look, or just some functional style for the family.

The Energy Semi Pedestal Basin is a great choice, featuring an understated yet chic style that would suit a wide range of contemporary bathrooms.

Is a semi pedestal basin right for my bathroom?

Apart from a gorgeous contemporary look, there are many other benefits to choosing a semi pedestal basin for your bathroom. They are a space-efficient option, leaving the floor clear under the basin where it would otherwise be taken up by a pedestal. This makes cleaning the bathroom floor easier, as you don’t have to negotiate any awkward nooks.

A semi pedestal basin is an excellent choice for an ensuite or cloakroom, as they can make a room feel less cluttered if you’re short on space. This effect can also be beneficial in larger bathrooms too, adding a sleek and minimalist look.
