If you find yourself considering a pedestal sink for your bathroom, or your apartment already has one, you might find yourself low on space to store your lotions and potions. We're not hating, though. A pedestal sink is usually a gorgeous addition; it just doesn't have the added bonus of drawers and cabinets like a built-in vanity. But fear not, we've got you. There are a plethora of smart pedestal sink storage ideas that can keep your clutter in check without forfeiting style.
From beautiful baskets to creative cabinets, let's dive in.
1. Keep it monochrome with a white cabinet.
This all-white bathroom feels so serene with a vintage style pedestal sink and classic wainscoting. Find a simple cabinet, like the one here, that complements the space for storing towels and toilet paper. Plus, you'll get an extra surface for your soaps and serums, too.

2. Sneak some shelves into your sink area.
We really love the crisp look of this bathroom's pedestal sink. And you just can't beat a freestanding tub with subway tile. If you want a similar aesthetic, add a tiered metal shelf where you can keep things organized and in view.

4. Build storage around the sink.
You can add cabinets below, above, and around your pedestal sink for storage. And the good news is you'll still be able to showcase the basin's unique shape. For an added bonus, give your cabinets' interiors a surprise color contrast, too.

5. Send in a side table to help.
Many of us probably have an extra side table that can be put to use inside our bathrooms, especially if it doesn't fit anywhere else. This little midcentury modern option in the New Darling's powder room completes the sink area and provides great toiletry storage.

6. Let a chair be more than just a seat.
Need to stack your towels somewhere? Sure you can use a large basket or bin, but you can also slide a cute accent chair next to your pedestal sink. This rustic bathroom from Copy Cat Chic strikes the perfect balance of beautiful and practical.

7. Make a statement with your medicine cabinet.
If you're more of a minimalist and like to keep your bathroom items hidden, add a medicine cabinet with ample space above your pedestal sink. The soothing shades of blue in this gorgeous space from Nicola Harding make us want to keep any clutter tucked away so the focus stays on self-care.
