Bathroom basin pipes on show

Postby Jean Ferrie » Sun Nov 11, 2007 9:43 am

Hi, I've just had a new bathroom fitted and the pipes for the wash hand basin are the first thing you see, because the basin is side on to the door. The pedestal is too far forward to hide them. Is there anything I can do about this?

All I can suggest apart from moving the pipes, is to box them in. In the past I have used white plastic soffit board which looks the same as a bath or shower tray.
