Dear monaseeta-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. No, the plumbing (ie the water lines) are not typically visible behind the sink, rather they are INSIDE it. I think you?ll find this step-by-step installation guide from Lowe?s quite helpful: ?Pedestal sinks come in two pieces?the stand (pedestal) and the sink itself. The plumbing fits inside the pedestal, which is secured to the floor.? LOWES http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=howTo&p=Improve/InstPedSink.html Here are a number of other sources that offer great advice. Here?s a good search strategy: GOOGLE: INSTALLING A PEDESTAL SINK ://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Installing+a+Pedestal+Sink&btnG=Google+Search I hope you find that my answer exceeds your expectations. If you have any questions about my research please post a clarification request prior to rating the answer.

Having looked at a couple of sites on the subject, I believe that those advertising their products are showing the ideal situation: no connections visible, but for the simple reason that there are no water lines to the items shown. Sites about installation reveal that the connection from the outlets in the wall is visible. http://www.hometips.com/articles/pedestalsink.html http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/knowhow/handbook/article/0,16417,221693,00.html From the practical side, if the outlets for the sink are in the wall, the connection must be visible to some extent since the turn-off valves have to be accessable.
