Many home owners would remodel some part of their houses from time to time. If you're still deliberating on what part of your house needs a face-lift, why not pick the laundry area this time round. You can do this quite simply by incorporating a more useful and manageable laundry sink. A wide variety of options are available in the sinks cabinet series from which to choose.
Actually, renovating the laundry room isn't such a revolutionary thing. Over the years, many home owners have either adopted a separate room or utilized the basement for this purpose. According to the Appliance Source, 57% of homes had a separate laundry room in 2006 up from 17% of homes in 1992; whereas15% of homes had a laundry in the basement in 2006.
Deciding On The Right Size
When choosing a laundry sink, it's crucial that you consider the amount of workload it will endure. This will help in selecting the right size in terms of width and depth. Large laundry tubs/ sinks are good if you will do a lot of hand-washing. On the other hand, smaller sinks can be ideal for washing and rinsing out laundry supplies or even cleaning the laundry room itself. Small sinks help to save space, thus keeping the room uncluttered and increasing the available space for storage.
Various factors to assess during your selection include:
(i) Sink Width - In order to determine the sink width, you have to measure the cabinet from edge to edge. This measurement gives you the largest possible sink which can fit on that particular cabinet. Otherwise, you might purchase one that is too large.
(ii) Countertop Depth -The countertop depth is determined by taking the measurement between the countertop front to the back. Countertops that have post formed backsplashes will generally accommodate sinks with maximum front to back dimensions of twenty-one inches. For countertops that don't have post formed backsplashes, sinks with maximum front to back dimension of twenty-two inches may be accommodated. However, if you have a solid surface material or a thick tile mounted on your backsplash, the counter space available for your sink will be reduced.
Laundry Sink Accessories
Although a simple sink basin is quite useful, including a few extra accessories will enhance its usability. You can include such accessories as soap dispensers, under sink shelving and towel racks.
When you select a faucet to go with the sink, it's advisable not only to choose a beautifully designed one, but also check for highly efficient products. You should look out for the highly efficient WELS taps, which have a low-flow and also feature aerators. These taps can use only 2 liters of water per minute, compared to typical taps that have the potential of discharging 15 to 18 liters of water per minute. Definitely, this won't just be a benefit in terms of conserving a vital environmental resource, but also saving on unnecessary water bills.
Once you select the right fixtures for your home, you must then seek an expert renovator to do the installation. Alternatively, you can do that all by yourself, as long as you possess the necessary expertise.
