In a full pedestal basin, there is a pedestal below the basin that goes all the way to the bathroom floor and hides all the pipe work. The Basin is mounted on the wall, so the pedestal isn’t taking the full weight of the basin
The full pedestal Basin can be used to conceal pipe work going into the floor of the basin. If your pipe work goes into the wall, prefer a Semi-Pedestal or Wall Mounted Basin
Classic, evergreen design. Conceals the piping systems
Usually takes up more space and blocks the bathroom floor
Semi Pedestal Basin:
The Semi Pedestal Basin is wall mounted and supported by, as the name suggests, a semi pedestal. The pedestal is a perfect way to hide the pipe work and yet give an elegant chic look to your bathroom.

Considering to buy a sink. Below are the pointers to keep in mind while buying a sink.
Type of Sink
Under mount Sinks:
Undermount sinks Increase the natural beauty of your kitchen top asthey fit neatly under the kitchen tops and allow more space due to the rimless design.
Undermount sinks are slightly more expensive and require higher maintenance as they are stuck to the kitchen platform with adhesives
Drop In Sinks:
The conventional and commonly used type of sink where the edges of the sink are placed on the counter top
Over mount sinks are Cheaper and easier to install and maintain
Farm House Sinks:
These sinks have a protruding body, that adds a dash of style to your sink. Farmhouse sinks are not very popular in India yet, but are a regular feature in high end kitchens in the west
Material of sink:
A classic and industrial-looking choice, stainless steel sinksare practical and stylish. Stainless steel sinks are hard-wearing and easy to clean, easy to take care of andincapable of being cracked. On the flip side, stainless steel sinks get scratch marks over long usage
Composite Quartz Sinks:
If you’re looking for more strength and durability, choose a composite quartz sink. They can withstand very high temperatures and are highly scratch resistant. On the flip side they are expensive, and not very common yet in India
Quartz sinks are available in a variety of colours and finishes – like stone finish, granite finish etc
Number of Bowls :
For small and mid-sized kitchens
1.5 Bowl: If you want extra space to wash vegetables while the main bowl is full of dishes
Double Bowl: For large kitchens, with lots of space for all your kitchen multitasking
2.5 Bowl: For large kitchens. Keep your cleaned, dirty kitchenware and washed vegetables segregated
The half bowl in 1.5 and 2.5 bowl sinks is a smaller and shallower bowl, and its primary purpose is for washing fruits and vegetables, separating cutlery from the washing pile
Buying a Sink with Drain board :
Firstly, what is a drainboard: The drainboard is the ribbed flat portion right next to the sink bowl
The drainboard is an ideal place for drying hand washed utensils, vegetables etc. Since it is ribbed and sloped, the water drains down directly into the sink.
While it is high on utility, the drainboard will take away some of your kitchen top space. Prefer a sink with out drainboard for small kitchens
Shape of Sink
The most common shape of sink bowls. The rectangular/square shapes fit best with our conventional platform shapes
In case your sink will be in the corner of your platform, you can opt for a corner basin. The shape of the corner basin helps you save space and make efficient use of the corner space.
Corner sinks are available for both right and left sided corners
Round bowls can be used where space is limited. Round bowls are generally used in restaurant, canteens and commercial kitchens – where the sink may also double up as a wash basin.
These are designer sinks
Waste Disposal Units:
A hygienic way to deal with food disposal. Fits under the sink. As a use case concept, waste disposal units are still not very popular in India
The waste couplers are used to prevent clogging of drain pipes. They can be removed, emptied and put back in the sink
For water to drain off while the vessels are in the sink
Drain Pipes are required to move the water from the sink to the drainage pipe. They may or may not be included in the Sink package. Always inquire about this.
Additional Drain Boards:
Can be put on top of the sink bowl and used as a drainboard
Can be put on top of the sink bowl to create additional space in the kitchen. It’s a useful product for small kitchens.
It is important to check the size of the sink bowl before buying additional Drain board and sink chopping boards – the board must fit exactly on the border of the bowl.

Adopt a fine woven single bowl sink with a scratch-resistant drain board for better functionality.

Clean messes in a chaos-free zone with our double bowl sinks. Two is always better than one, right? So why not go for something that has the power to give you more. Double bowl sinks are available in stainless steel and granite finish, a syphon and pipe included in each model
