It is rare that you will want a fancy looking utility sink, after all, the laundry is not generally a place that you’re going to try to showcase your design skills. This is a room in the house where function is paramount and the sink is one of those objects that must be functional rather than stylistically fashion forward.

That being said, there are some options that you will be able to choose from when you come to buy your new utility sink. The more common types of utility sinks that are available are stainless steel, cast iron or hardened plastic utility sinks. All of these types of utility sinks are hardwearing and will be able to withstand heavy knocks as well as harsh chemicals. The utility sink is where you are likely going to be using bleach, turpentine and other chemicals that will potentially stain other parts of the house. It is a workhorse of a sink and will be treated as such as you go about your daily chores.

In most cases above the laundry sink will be a utility sink faucet that in most cases will have a swivelling head to give you the ability to shift it out of the way when moving things in and out of the sink. Choices of single or dual handled faucets are available and, once again, the faucet designs tend towards the functional rather than the showy.

Although chrome utility sink faucets are the most common types of faucets installed in the laundry you can also find brass and stainless steel types too. They can either be mounted on the sink itself or, more commonly, your will find wall mount utility sink faucets.

What To Look For In A Utility Sink

  • Go for the largest utility sink you can fit into your laundry. The more functional it is the better.
  • Choose a hard wearing sink material. Stainless steel is easiest to keep clean hardened plastic will withstand a lot of abuse. The problem with plastic is that it will stain. Acrylic and fibreglass are both excellent options as well.
  • Choose a faucet that swivels so that you can easily get buckets etc. into and out of the sink.
  • Faucets with lever handles would help in turning the water on and off when you’re got your hands full. Many times in the laundry you are going to be lifting heavy objects and it will be difficult to turn a faucet knob.
  • A utility sink cabinet will provide you with necessary storage space underneath the sink and is a must.
