Sink or No Sink?

I am curious today to hear who has a sink in their laundry room and who doesn't? If you don't, would you put a sink in yours? I currently don't have a sink in my laundry room but would definitely love to have one eventually.







Comment below and let me know!

I'd most definitely want a sink in my laundry room. I grew up having one, and it's so easy to have it handy for all those delicate pieces that need to be hand washed.

Also, when you're doing any painting in the house it's a great way to clean your tools if you don't have the option of a garden.
Those look beautiful! I'm on the hunt for a nice inspiration for ours (which unfortunately does not have a sink..) great post!

I wish I had a laundry sink. It is the best place to clean paint brushes and fill buckets and scrub shoes and all sorts of things.

We have a sink in our laundry room and for the 10 months we've been at this house, I've never used it. We also have a sink in one of our garages and I use that one often - gardening, cleaning paint brushes, cleaning up before going inside.

I've been in my house 7 years and I've never used the laundry room sink :) I do my hand washing in the bathroom -- because that's where I hang it.

We have a sink and I use it daily, maybe a third of the total amount of time I use the kitchen sink, which is ~20 feet away.

I would love a laundry room wash tub. I didn't realize how OCD I was until I looked at that 4th beautiful laundry room 0.o

THERE IS A SINK IN THE BATHROOM ACROSS FROM THE LAUNDRY AREA; HOWEVER, A LINE IS AVAILABLE FOR A SINK NEXT TO THE WASHER/DRYER AND I INTEND TO HAVE ONE INSTALLED. PART OF MY BASEMENT IS FINISHED AND THAT BATHROOM IS FOR GUESTS. ALSO, SINCE THE HOUSE DOES NOT HAVE A MUDROOM, I'M THINKING ABOUT CHANGING THE EVERYDAY ENTRY TO THE BASEMENT AND USING THIS AS A MUDROOM. WHY A HOUSE WOULD BE BUILT WITHOUT A MUDROOM ENTRY, I DO NOT KNOW. WITH ALL OF THAT IN MIND, A LAUNDRY SINK WOULD BE MOST CONVENIENT -- ONE OF THE FARM SINKS THAT COULD ACCOMMODATE A VARIETY OF TASKS WOULD BE PERFECT.

I have had a sink in my laundry room for 15 years and never use it. It stays constantly full of storage items, because the cabinetry is limited, because of the sink that never gets used. we are building a house now, minus a sink there, and plus more usable cabinetry. Also, there will be a bathroom sink within 10-15' of the laundry room there as there is now.

I put a sink in the laundry room when I remodeled a house 17 years ago and all I ever used it for was bathing babies because it was a nice deep sink. When I built a house five years ago I put one in the garage and not in the laundry room. We used it to bathe the dog, and dirty jobs. It was a much better use of space for me to skip the laundry room sink and have more counter top space to fold clothes. I NEVER missed is being in there, but I guess it depends on your personal needs.

There was a sink in the utility room when we moved in. We tore out everything in the room and the first thing we put back in was a NEW deep sink.

We use the sink for everything we wouldn't want to clean in the kitchen or bathroom sinks...latex brushes and rollers, rinsing out plastic litter boxes, and I plan on dying a couple throw rugs in it.

Wouldn't trade it for anything!
