One thing that you don't see in bathrooms of elite spas and luxury hotels are the pipes of the bathroom sink jutting out, producing an eyesore. Though the ideal solution is to reinstall a sink with a sleeker design, if you rent your house or apartment, this is not an option. A sink skirt is a common solution but not the only option. A practical solution is to hide the sink pipes while creating more storage.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Hold a measuring tape from the floor to the bottom of the sink. Write down the measurements of the height, width and depth of this area.

  2. 2

    Purchase a shelf unit, cabinet or basket that matches the exact height of this space and the approximate width and depth.

  3. 3

    Place this shelf unit, cabinet or basket underneath the sink so the new piece of furniture directly blocks the sink pipes. Use the space to store towels, rolls of toilet paper or other items.
