Laundry sinks will allow a homeowner to do laundry by hand if necessary, rinse out detergent cups, soak items that need soaking, or simply wash one’s hands after handling dirty laundry or other items.
The type of Kohler laundry room sink you’ll choose will depend on the purpose of the sink as well as the available space and plumbing access. Be sure to consider how the laundry sink is likely to be used and how often, and find out how much space is available for the sink.
A tub sink, or a utility sink, is a large laundry room sink that is quite deep. It can be filled up with water by stopping the drain, and items can be washed by hand in the sink. It’s important to keep in mind, that this type of laundry room sink is large and will take up space in the room.
A much smaller sink like those found in bathrooms or kitchens can also be installed in the laundry room. These types of sinks are great for washing hands or cleaning off items in the laundry room.
The smaller sinks can also be stopped and filled with water so items can be hand-washed in them, but the smaller sink will make it far more difficult to wash larger items. The disadvantage of this type of sink over a utility sink is its inability to contain large amounts of water, which means water can slosh around and spill to the ground, potentially leading to moisture damage.
Consider the materials used to construct the Kohler laundry room sink basin. Stainless steel is a good choice because it is durable and resistant to water damage as well as staining, but it will cost more than other options.
Plastic is a less expensive choice, though it may stain fairly easily and can also scratch or even crack. Porcelain and other higher end materials will look very nice, but they can get stained easily and they will not be inexpensive options.
