A laundry sink or tub can be a great addition to a home if it’s put in a place where it will actually be used. While most people don’t really think they have as much need for old fashioned utility sinks because of automatic washers and dryers, the installation of one can really add value to your home and provide a special sort of usefulness that smaller sinks can’t. If you are thinking about redoing your laundry room or your basement, a laundry sink can be a great way to do it. A laundry sink, which may also be called a utility sink or laundry tub, is a useful and not very expensive addition to the laundry room or to rooms like mudrooms and basements. Though the sinks can vary in size, most of the basins are over a foot (.31 meters) deep.
They make for excellent places to hand wash or soak clothing, and they’re also very practical for things like mopping floors or washing smaller animals. In the past the standard laundry sink was a large white tub that wasn’t particularly attractive. The best that could be said of it was that it was utilitarian in purpose. This has changed with a growing appreciation for these sinks. There are now numerous types made in lots of different materials. Materials used can include porcelain, glass, and stone.
