With an extra-wide surface and a deep, large basin that provides much-needed space, a utility sink is a welcomed addition to a home or workspace. Commonly referred to as laundry sinks and slop sinks, utility sinks offer a convenient way to bathe pets, clean gardening tools, soak clothes and empty mop buckets without creating an unnecessary mess in the other sinks in your home.
Ace Hardware carries the best selection of laundry room sinks to help you handle messier tasks.
Versatile Laundry Tub Sinks for All Uses
As you're planning accommodations for a laundry room or garage space, you should keep a utility sink in mind. When washing clothes, the deep basin of a laundry tub sink can help eliminate excess water splashing. Beyond rinsing stains and prepping clothes, a laundry room utility sink can also be useful for cleaning up after kids' art projects, bathing pets and filling and emptying mop buckets.
A garage sink or outdoor utility sink can provide the extra space you need to scrub tools, clean up after painting projects and wash hands after handling tough DIY projects. In these instances, a washtub sink can help keep grime, dirt, grease and other substances from damaging your kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Choosing the Right Utility Sink for You
There are many aspects to consider when selecting a new laundry sink. Knowing your options and thinking about your specific needs can go a long way in helping you choose a washtub sink you'll appreciate for years to come. Consider several factors to help determine the type of indoor or outdoor utility sink that best fits your home and budget.
When deciding on a new garage or laundry tub sink, one of the most basic options you need to be aware of is the installation method required for your sink setup. Many models are designed with heavy-gauge steel legs with adjustable levelers to ensure easy installation as well as a precise and even fit.
Since it influences cost, appearance and functionality, the material your utility sink is made of is another important aspect to consider. Although several types of laundry tub sink material options are available, polypropylene is one of the most popular materials due to its:
- Durable performance
- Mold- and mildew-resistant properties
- Lightweight design
- Easy-to-clean surface
Size and Sink Design
Think about the existing layout of your space and how you plan to use your washtub sink on a regular basis. Will a utility sink with one basin be large enough to accommodate your daily tasks or do you require two basins? Do you need a large laundry sink, or would a small utility sink best fit into your existing space?
