Why everyone needs a laundry sink!
1- You can bathe babies in them!
2- You can pre-treat clothing in the laundry room instead of your kitchen island
3- You can handwash clothes in it instead of your half bath sink, so that your kids can still wash their hands after they go to the bathroom and you don't have anything soaking in there!
4- You can throw muddy, nasty shoes in there and hose them off instead of in your driveway and forget them out there for a few days....
5- You can wash poop off your babies clothes before washing them and not being totally grossed out doing it in your kitchen sink!
I could name a million more reasons but honestly? I don't know how I went this long without one!!! We had this put in almost 10 months ago and I can honestly tell you I use it EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!!!!!!!! I have a very dysfunctional laundry room. But it has made me REALLY think about what I want in the new house, after living with one I do NOT like for so long. This room is small, I have measured it before but can't remember. It has a doorway to the kitchen and a doorway to the garage and before we ripped out the closet, it had a doorway to the closet. This room has to function as catch all, laundry room, mudroom and hold a bunch of other homeless items.
Seeing that I have posted this picture and the room is still NOT completed yet will make me finish it so I can post some pictures before the house goes up for sale!!!
What do you love or NOT love about your laundry room? What would your DREAM Laundry room include? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
