Laundry tubs have been around for many years. They are popular in commercial laundry rooms. But, some homes prefer to have a smaller tub. The larger tub is a convenience and is very common in houses with two or three bathrooms. But, some like their laundry rooms to be personal and choose small laundry tubs. If you are remodeling your laundry area, here are some things that you can do to make it more useful and practical.
In most houses, washing machines and other appliances are shared. However, you can upgrade these with features that will make the job easier and the environment cleaner. For instance, you can upgrade to stainless steel sinks that are made of durable materials. On the other hand, big laundry tubs may be unnecessary especially in modern homes where space is at a premium.
Smaller laundry tubs can be used as kitchen sinks. A benchtop sink is a design that allows you to wash bigger items such as pots and pans. There are instances when a benchtop is attached to a faucet to make it accessible for people with disabilities. You can also opt for grab bars that extend along the sides of the benchtop to provide easy access to washed dishes.
There are advantages to having two or more small laundry tubs in your home. When you have an extra-large kitchen sink, you can put a stainless steel pot on top of it. The height should be adjustable so you can wash and dry larger pans without bending your back. Or, you may want to have a separate small kitchen sink for normal pots and pans but add a stainless steel pot on top for pots and pans that are taller than the rest.
Laundry Tubs are ideal space-savers in your home or office. The most popular type of laundry tubs has been built specifically to fit in corners so they can be stored away when not in use. This is an extremely efficient way to use limited space. Corner laundry tubs can help you save space in a room where most cabinets are already full. Also, by using corner units, you will be able to use the extra space for shelving and other useful items.
Another option for small laundry tubs is to build a freestanding benchtop unit. These units are usually about six feet tall and come with a countertop that sits on the floor. The countertop can be a separate piece that sits on a table or as part of the drawers that are on top of the sink. This allows you to keep the sink open while still keeping the benchtop out of the way. If you opt for a freestanding benchtop unit, then make sure that the cabinet that the benchtop goes into is made of solid wood.
There are many different styles of laundry tubs to choose from. For small to medium-sized homes, a sink-and-faucet combination laundry tub is an excellent choice. This type of laundry tub allows you to install a small, sink-style faucet that is connected to the faucet that comes with the unit. You can then mount the faucet on the wall or in a corner of the room. Since these units are made of plastic, they are extremely easy to clean and maintain.
Building your utility sinks to use in your laundry tubs can also be an effective way to save space. Utility sinks can be made from acrylic, concrete, or even sheetrock. Utility sinks are very affordable and can be used to store many types of laundry equipment such as garbage disposal, fabric softener, and even a washer and dryer. By building your utility sinks, you will also be able to match your overall decor to make your laundry room look more professional and stylish.
