Unlike kitchen or bathroom sinks, laundry sinks are deeper and can be filled with a huge volume of water, making these suitable for soaking and hand washing clothes, cleaning tools, and giving pets a bath. With so many options to choose from, you need to account for a few important factors before settling on a final unit.
- Installation type: Ideally, your choice of laundry tub should fit your long term use of the laundry, you can choose from top mount or undermount tubs or even floor standing units.
- Materials: Laundry sinks come in a variety of materials: acrylic, cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic.
- Use of the sink: The needs of a single person will greatly differ from the needs of a family of five.
- Size: You have to consider how much space is available in the area where the sink will be installed.
