What are the best options for concealing exposed pipes behind a wash basin?

I have a small bathroom with exposed pipes behind the wash basin. Would like to replace the wash basin/full pedestal with a semi pedestal, but this would expose the existing pipework even more. 4 pipes in total: 2 vertical and 2 horizontal. Do not want to get a small cupboard under the wash basin in order to conceal pipes. Are there other options available?

There is not an easy answer to this without seeing the problem
There are several types of pipe cover that can be placed over the pipes but this will not get rid of the problem
Second is cut out & set the pipes into the wall, this will be messy & could be expensive
Last is make a feature of them if you can't hide them
replace all the copper/plastic pipework with chrome pipe & fittings
I have done this before in similar situations & done well it looks smart

Hope this helps best of luck
Kind regards

In order to fit s semi Ped, your vertical pipes to taps will need to be sunk into the wall, then where your pipes come horizontal they could also be chased in to wall, or neatly boxed in at low level. There is always a way, but it's a hard one to call without seeing your situation.
