How Large Is Your Laundry Room?

A wide, wall-mounted porcelain sink is perfect for a multipurpose space, like this one. While it’s too shallow for serious soaking, it’s ideal for washing both hands and miscellaneous grimy items that really shouldn’t get rinsed in the kitchen sink.

If you have the budget to expand your laundry room sink to accommodate four-legged friends, a massive sink and versatile faucet system are well worth the extra spend.

How Often Will It Be Used?
