If you're renovating or building a new home, choosing the right laundry sink can have a huge impact on your washing process and help you to better launder your clothes. Gone are the days of simple white laundry basins, on eBay you can purchase a range of laundry tubs in different materials and styles. Here are some handy tips to help you choose the perfect sink for your house.
Check for quality
You want to make sure your laundry sink is built for its purpose. When browsing sinks, check that the base has been heat insulated to retain warmth when soaking. Then check the seals - does your new laundry trough come with seals and are these of a high quality to ensure it is water tight?
Does it suit your needs?
Before you start browsing it's important to assess the space that you have in your laundry by taking precise measurements. Then think about your laundry style. If you don't hand wash clothes often or are part of a small family then a smaller laundry trough could be perfect. If you have a large family or lots of delicate garments that need hand laundering, you might want to look at a larger tub or consider a double laundry sink.
There are three different types of laundry sinks that are readily available. These include free standing sinks, flush mount sinks and under counter sink. A free standing sink is just as the name suggests, these sinks usually come built into a laundry cupboard and are a great option for people who want extra storage or to give their laundry a quick and easy make over. A flush mount sink is one that has been dropped into a bench top to give it a modern and streamlined look. Under mount sinks are fitted under the bench surface and are great for laundries with limited space.
