Amy Matthews: Before you pick up a vanity make sure you aware of what will actually work with your plumbing situation. If you find yourself drawn to a pedestal sink and you didn’t have one before you have to call a plumber to adjust the rough plumbing or the place where your pipes come to the wall. Butch Sabot: I roughing this to be change, a little more complicated on the installation. John Detterline: The plumbing itself on a pedestal sink needs to be in a fairly tighten and very fine night location. If you have to go that direction you want to do that you want to conceal the supply tubes and the waste pipe behind the column of the pedestal sink itself. So, in that particular case your raise are going to be manage with the existing location you have or you are going to need to do a little bit of plumbing ahead of time to be able to relocate that plumbing to a place where you want to center that particular pedestal sink. You have a little more latitude with the vanity. Amy Matthews: Because the rough plumbing is hidden in the cabinet with the vanity, it’s definitely a better choice for someone that’s installing bathroom fixtures for the first time. Anthony DeVito: Several different types of vanities depending on atmosphere of the bedroom when you want to be country colonial, traditional, modern they’re going to be available in all different products. They can be wood, stain, painted, will be available in press board, it will be available in laminates such as from Mica and multiple colors there. It will also available in steel and metal products. Brian Doyle: You can buy vanity sinks that are already assemble, the next generally what I prefer to buy because I learned many years ago that I just don’t like in around of two hours trying to figure out part A, part B, granite C, D and trying to get everything together it just it doesn’t work it’s a pain in the neck. But a lot of the home store selling that way and people get suck into that and they buy them and it becomes you know Pandora’s Box. Anthony DeVito: Well pedestal band to your sink is a little bit different than just the vanity; a pedestal sinks more of the plumbing picture. Brian Doyle: Well if you’ve like to upgrade from a vanity to a pedestal sink there are some differences. Usually the roughing requirement when I say roughing requirement I mean the drainage and the water lines usually they are different for a pedestal than a vanity. Anthony DeVito: You can go from a pedestal sink to a vanity, if you are going to go from a vanity to a pedestal sink you are going probably to redo some plumbing within the wall and reposition the plumbing.
