Lily of the Valley has installed two side-by-side gorgeous red glass pedicure sinks in our front room.
Mounted flush to the floor, with spiffy brushed metal taps and instant hot water to boot, our new pedi sinks let clients recline with a trashy magazine in our leather Indonesian planter’s chairs while their esthetician works high magic upon their feet.
We were lucky. The team who did the work had initially told us it couldn’t be done. Normally you need to mount sinks and taps on a wooden box or counter to allow room for the valves and drains and such.
But we challenged our master plumber to devise a way to mount everything flush on the slate tiles. He did a trial run at his home first, then phoned and told us he’d figured out how he could do it. It took him and his partner almost a whole day to complete the installation through our insanely thick floors (4 inches to be exact, consisting of 3/8″slate, 3/4″ plywood, original hardwood flooring and subflooring).
But the sinks look fabulous and work perfectly. Clients love them, our girls love them and, best of all, we avoided those deeply tacky throne-like chair/sink pedi thingies found in most salons.
