The Best Sinks for Your Utility Room

Unlike your kitchen and bathroom sinks, your utility room sink will have more than its fair share of bumps and bangs. Capable of dealing with muddy shoes – and perhaps even paws – used paint brushes and those BBQ spring cleans, it’s important to seek something that prioritises utility, hardiness and versatility.

But with so many still to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put together a list of options and things to think about, to help you make the choice that’s right for you.

Stainless steel sinks

Stainless steel sinks are the most popular choice for a utility room as they are hard wearing, affordable and easy to clean. They come in a range of sizes and configurations to suit many needs, and are even compatible with waste disposal units.

Plus, their neutral design makes them adaptable to almost any utility room colour scheme.

Composite sinks

If you want your utility room sink to have style and substance, composite sinks have it all. They are resistant to heat, scratches, scrapes and chips, making them incredibly resilient. They also come with typically larger draining areas, which make them great for those wanting to use their utility room as a cleaning station.

Pedestal sinks

For smaller sized utility rooms, a pedestal sink may be worth considering due to its compact and freestanding qualities.

Granted they’re normally found in small bathrooms or cloakrooms, though they come in a range of different designs such as washstand sinks, corner pedestal and tap hole basin pedestals. So you’re sure to find something to suit.

Ceramic and granite sinks

Due to their more traditional features and pearl white colouring, ceramic sinks should be kept away from utility rooms.

And the same goes for granite sinks. While they’re hard wearing, it’s usually seen as a shame to hide their stylish aesthetic away in a utility room.
