How to Hide the Plumbing Under a Pedestal Sink

Pedestal sinks are often used in small bathrooms with limited space. Although the skinny pedestal is cute, the plumbing that is exposed can be a bit of an eyesore. Hide this plumbing with one of these fun ideas that will also give your bathroom an extra boost Shelf/vanity stores such as Ikea make storage shelves and vanities that fit perfectly with pedestal sinks. They have an opening at the center, and you simply slide it into place in front of your sink. Not only will this hide the plumbing, but it also gives you extra storage space. These items can be a bit pricey, so if you’re looking for a similar solution you can find a small shelf or storage rack that would do the same thing, only the entire shelf would set in front of the sink rather than fitting nicely up to the wall.

This is a classy way to spice up your bathroom while also hiding your plumbing. With some fabric and industrial strength Velcro, you can easily keep plumbing around the pedestal sink out of sight. You can also keep unsightly items such as a plunger and toilet brush hidden under the curtain.

Take the opportunity to get creative! If your bathroom has a theme, make something that will go along with the overall theme. For a farm theme, you could make a little picket fence or a beach theme you can create the look of a pier. The ideas are endless!

Add some freshness to your bathroom with a pair of matching plants. To make sure they will hide your plumbing, opt for a taller plant such as a Snake plant or a Red-Edge Dracaena. Being located right by the sink, odds are you won’t forget to water it!
