Topic tags/keywords: sink pex water lines bathroom layout

We had to frame our downstairs bathroom about 8” less due to furnace clearances and are now faced with a quite cramped bathroom layout.

(From left to right) Tub, Toilet, Sink with the door opening in front of the sink.

Original plan was to have a standard 20-24” vanity and that would allow anyone on the john to be squeezed between the shower curtain and the vanity as well as any small bathroom can accommodate. By loosing 8” a standard vanity is totally out of the picture and we were spitballing a pedistal sink to give the illusion of more room.

My PEX lines run along the back wall protruding from the right and are exposed. How would you install a pedestal sink and hide the water lines in a non-obvious way?

So you’ve got to cover your PEX lines, because PEX is super photo-reactive. Barring anything else, I’d just build a cove to cover it… Maybe some pictures would help?
