There was a time when white was one hue I would avoid at all costs; it just didn't seem to have the visual value compared to its dramatic, polar opposite hues.

You may be sharing that same ideal when considering a modern pedestal sink but really, you'll be overlooking the most versatile of 'color' choices.

Think of white as a blank canvas awaiting your custom touch of color--or not. You'll have the option to keep a monochromatic scheme that looks amazingly fresh and clean.

Too, a white pedestal sink like those shown here will betray the sophisticated look modern design often commands--(especially for small bathrooms), while laying the foundation for an aesthetically pleasing, spa ambiance.

No matter where you're going with your small bathroom's modern decor, a white pedestal sink leaves the door wide open for your custom touch.

Budget Shopping: Getting More for Less

This modern vessel pedestal sink and faucet combo is a prime example of getting more for less.

Often, you'll find that gotta-have piece that's perfect in every regard--except its price. This tiny 'flaw' can come between your beautiful bathroom and keeping your budget within reality. It's easy to become somewhat 'decorating delusional' once you're overwhelmed with modern pedestal sinks 'aplenty and other fabulous bathroom fixtures that carry a hefty price tag.

I always suggest splurging on your main piece--like the sink-- then adding other supporting fixtures and decor as you find and/or afford them.

Start big; finish small for a huge reward (enter your own mathematical visual, here).

With small bathrooms, sometimes finding space to fit even the basics is a big challenge and the result can be likened to a cramped closet you'd rather not occupy--even for a minute.

Since you're going with the modern genre, opting for a glass vanity for your small bathroom, is a smart choice. Its transparency give the illusion of the vanity occupying very little of your space's valuable floor space.

Too, you have the option to go with color, black or white accessories, making easier work of appointing the bathroom with pieces that are both complementary and useful.

If you're not keen on decorating, glass bathroom vanities are a fabulous choice for your modern theme.

My #1 Pick for Best Modern Vanity for Small Bathrooms

23" Glass Vessel Bathroom Vanity Combo - Mustard Gold

At only 23-inches, this modern pedestal is small but packs a lot of 'ammo' grabbing the spotlight in the bathroom with its mustard yellow, glass vessel sink and chrome pedestal base.

Metals make a great option for small bathrooms, as their reflective qualities capture light, seemingly casting it about the room in a brilliant measure.

I love the attention to detail with its built-in hand towel bar and aptly appointed faucet and the sleek black and mustard glass countertop that screams, "modern!"

Can you sense I love this pedestal sink?

There's few rooms so personal in your home than the bed and bathroom-especially if you've an owner's suite with adjoining bath. So, keeping your space totally your's is the order of business.

Surround yourself with a few posh things you've been pining for, seemingly forever in your small bathroom--go ahead and get the higher-priced tile; you won't need much of it in such a small space, nor will you need a huge light fixture.

I can see Italian, hand blown globe lighting or a fabulous chandelier, (albeit small) working quite well with any of these modern pedestal sinks I've shown on this page.

Don't you think so?

One great advantage of modern design is its value for freedom in melding finishes and textures all within the 'rules' for the genre. Chances are, you may have a few favorite pieces that you'd love to work in for a successful finish.

Many times, you can even work in a few rustic pieces and still have a cohesive result you'll love. Experiment with your accessories and placement; you'll be pleasantly surprised what you come up with.

Go ahead with what you love until you're satisfied it's finished.
