1. Pipe Hiding Solutions

You can hide the pipes under your bathroom sink in a few different ways. One way is to install a pipe cover, which is a piece of plastic, wood, or some form of resin that covers the pipes and blends in with the wall. Pipe coverings are widely available and come in various materials, so you should be able to find one that matches your bathroom’s décor.

Before purchasing any piping cover, measure the length and width of your pipes to ensure a proper fit. You may also want to get creative with the placement of your piping cover. For example, if you have a particularly ornate sink, you might choose a similarly styled cover.

2. Painting the Wall Behind the Sink

If you want to get creative, you can paint the wall behind your bathroom sink. This will give the illusion that the pipes are not there and make your bathroom look much neater. There are so many different ways that you can do this.

You could paint the wall one solid color or get creative and add stripes, polka dots, or even a mural. Depending on your preference, you can paint the entire wall or just a section. With suitable materials and a little know-how, there is no limit to what you can do.

3. Painting the Pipes Under the Sink

The pipes under your wall-mounted bathroom sink may not go with the overall look of your bathroom. If you want to hide the pipes, you can paint them. This is a quick and easy way to make your bathroom look much nicer. You will need to use a primer and a few coats of paint for the paint to adhere properly, but it is well worth the effort.

Alternatively, you can wrap the pipes with colorful tape. This is a great way to add personality to your bathroom and make the pipes less noticeable. Just be sure that whatever material you use is quality to prevent it from peeling over time.

4. Creating an Under-Sink Cabinet or Drawer Area

Another great way to cover the pipes is to create an under-sink cabinet or drawer area. This can be done by installing a shelf above the bathroom sink and mounting a cabinet or drawers below it. This will give you extra storage space and will camouflage the pipes at the same time.

You can opt to buy a ready-made cabinet or have one custom-made. If you choose to go with any of the options, make sure that you measure the dimensions of your pipes and provide these measurements to the store or carpenter. This will ensure a perfect fit.

Also, consider the position and design of your under-sink cabinet or drawer area because, as much as you want to hide the pipes, you also want it to be functional, convenient, and not out of place.

5. Install a Faux Cabinet

Installing a faux cabinet can completely hide the bathroom sink drain pipes. With a little bit of carpentry know-how, you can easily construct one with a single sheet of drywall and paint that matches the décor of your bathroom.

Leave some space, about 2 inches, between the edge of the pipes and the drywall so that in case there is water leakage, it will not damage the drywall.

If you want, you can even add some shelves inside for additional storage space. Just be sure to measure everything beforehand to end up with a functional and good-looking product.

This is an excellent option if you do not want to see any pipes. Just be sure you have some carpentry skills and take your time to make a lovely, neat cabinet.

6. Use a Basket/Storage Bin to Hide the Pipes

You can use a basket or any storage bin to quickly and easily hide the pipes under your bathroom sink. This will cover the pipes and give your bathroom a more finished look. You can find baskets and storage bins at most home goods stores or even use one you already have.

Use a basket with the right height to ensure a good fit. You can also place more than one basket or bin to obscure the view and not make the pipes visible.

7. Install a Shelf Under the Bathroom Sink

You can construct a small shelf out of wood that can be installed under the bathroom sink. This will give you a place to store your toiletries and other supplies and will camouflage the pipes at the same time. You can make the shelf as big or small as you want and paint it to match your décor.

If you have some carpentry skills, this is a great option. However, if you don’t feel confident in your abilities, you can always hire a professional to do it for you or buy a ready-made shelf.

8. Install a Sink Skirt

This is probably one of the easiest and most common ways to hide pipes under your wall-mounted bathroom sink. Sink skirts are available at most home goods stores and come in various colors, styles, and materials.

Sink skirts are easy to install. You must wrap them around the sink and attach them with tape or adhesive. This is an excellent option if you want a quick and easy way to hide the pipes without doing any construction or drilling.

9. Hide Pipes With Pedestal
