Laundry rooms are considered more of a utilitarian space, but they’re actually great areas to get creative with design. Of course, since it’s used for chores, most aspects need to be practical. So, it comes down to choosing the right accessories.
A good place to start is with the hardware and appliances. Under that umbrella comes the sink. Used to rinse rags and wash your hands, this often overlooked design opportunity has plenty of options for you to choose from—from classic farmhouse sinks to sleek integrated stone sinks and more. Not sure where to start? Check out these 13 laundry room sink ideas for inspiration.

Try a Pull-Down Faucet
A pull-down faucet is always handy in the laundry room to easily maneuver and get rid of any residue in the sink. This one by Tusk Home is set in silver to match the grey and white palette of the room. Plus, an undermount basin keeps things looking clean and seamless as you can easily wipe any mess directly into the sink.

Opt for Farmhouse Style
Farmhouse-style sinks always make a space look more chic. Here, Milagro Collective opted for one in a clean white to juxtapose against the sage green cabinets. Set alongside marble counters and backsplash, it creates an elevated and elegant feel. A brass bridge faucet matches the rest of the hardware on the drawers for a cohesive look.

Keep It Classic

With all that glamor, a simple sink like this is perfect for an elegant look without stealing the spotlight.

Mount the Faucet
For a more sleek and modern look, you can always go for a wall-mounted faucet. This laundry room by NFG Designs features one in a chrome finish with a bridged dual-handle. The knobs are coated in white to match the cabinets and cream backsplash. One advantage of this faucet style is that it allows for more space on the countertop to keep things like sponges, rags, and soap within reach.

Experiment With Faucet Shapes
Rather than the typical U-shaped faucet, Kinsman Kitchens opted for a more geometric, rectangular faucet to balance out the softer touches in this space. It has a single handle set at the center to keep things consolidated. Set in a nickel finish, the sink adds warmth and makes a statement in this otherwise pared-back laundry room.

Play With Color
Not keen on a metallic finish? You can always go to the dark side with a matte black faucet. A slim profile adds a contemporary touch to this laundry room, complementing its monochrome palette. The inky hue is also helpful to prevent stains and splatters from showing up.

In this space, one sits adjacent to the washing machines in a unique laundry-slash-powder room for a sophisticated and elegant look.Continue to 13 of 13 below.

Get a Drainboard
Drainboard sinks are handy as they combine a small basin on one side with a counter-level drainboard on the other. The drainboard helps trap water and drain it back, making drying items quick and easy. Here, a glossy white one is paired with an anchor-shaped faucet for an elegant farmhouse look.
