Washer Hookup and Drainage


Not sure if this is the correct category for this question but here it goes.

Currently we have our washer and dryer in our basement since our house was built during the 60's. We don't mind it being in the basement but want to turn the dull boring space it is in, into a nice laundry room.

My question is. How do I run water from the sink to the washer while hiding the hoses and water supply line and also run the drainage hose back from the washer invisibly?

We currently have one of the ugly double basin white sinks with the water lines running down to the faucet from the basement ceiling and the washer drainage line clipped over the side of that running into the basin.

We would like to install a more aesthetically pleasing sink but I need to know how I can hide the water lines not only to the sink but also from the sink to the washer and also how I can hide the drainage line from the washer. Can you hook up a return directly into the drain under the sink? Or will that cause problems with lint trap removal?

I hope my questions and info are clear. Thank you for your responses and let me know if I can provide further information.

If you properly frame and finish the walls most of your problems would be solved. The walls would hide most of the pipes
Also, if you turn the double sink into a single sink you would have room to move the washer closer and eliminate the indirect piping

How would I hide where my washer water lines connect to the water line now? I can't wall that off or I guess I could put a cabinet over that to be able to access the turn offs.

You'd need to do a little plumbing modification, but it's doable. For instance, you could install a washer box

Yeah... you can*.

To install a washer box can I split the water line and run 3/4 or 1/2 inch piping over to the wall with the washer and down to where I install the box? Then I can wall off the piping that comes down to the sink.
