Single Sink To Double Sink

In my master bath i have space for a double sink but only a single sink installed. Pipes exist only for the single sink.

Is it possible to tie into the water & drain lines @ the master bath and add a double sink?

To clarify.. is it possible to add a second sink without opening up drywall anywhere other than the master bath?

Also.. I know people hate giving out quotes over the internet beause of all the variables... but if you had to guess, assuming all the work would be done inside the master bath... how much time would it take and what would a ball park labor figure be? I am about 50 miles south of chicago in Minooka Illinois. I am getting ready to do some remodeling and im just trying to get an idea before i waste a contractors time. My first house, i have always lived in apartments so i have no idea what the different trades labor costs are.

Thanks in advance.

Sure you can, just like a double bowl kitchen, use an end outlet and then tee for the water lines. Price, sorry not there, so I can't give you a price.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.

Thanks. I really want a double sink but i was afraid of drywall being opened all the way to the basement.

Home Depot carries plumbing kits to replace single drains with a double drain set up. Probably find them at most supply stores.

Double Sink Vanity with Faucet integrated into Backsplash


I am an online distributor. They manufacture vanities available in many different sizes, finishes, colors, etc. One of the unique things they have come out with is integrating the faucet into the backsplash. With this, you don't have to mess with any plumbing in the wall. The supply lines connect at the bottom and you're all set.

Here are some pictures of what the vanities look like, both as a finished product and how the supply lines work.
