Hello,
I'm new to the forum and I'm here because I'm mid bathroom remodel. I have a pedestal sink with some franken-plumbing for the drain, which exits through the floor. Would prefer to find a fix that doesn't force me to open up the floor. Would also like to meet code (P trap) but that's seeming unlikely. At a minimum, I would like it to look much nicer. Any advice?

Since WI dosent (to my knowledge ) allow an AAV , and you dont want to open a wall, presumeably "making it look nice" wouldnt allow an exposed vent pipe running up the wall.
3 options , 1 Leave it alone 2 paint pipes cammoflage 3 install an aav illegal but better than what you have in my opinion, I belive this is the one case that code should allow an upgrade preferable over an old fasioned s trap design if the aav dosent work you still have the crappy s trap anyway

I don't mind opening the wall, but my plumber didn't seem to think he could leave the bottom of the drain where it is in the floor and then run it into the wall to facilitate a P trap.

ok well I dont know what to tell you you said you want to make it look better but dont want to open wall? now you say your plumber cant do this or that. i cant tell you why your pipes cant go in the wall he could be right could be wrong. I just cant see the obstruction from here. That might be why the pipe is exposed though
