Plumber: Do the job with a utility faucet
Q: We’re making plans to finally have a sink installed in our laundry room and I have a faucet question. Should we look at kitchen or bathroom faucets to supply water to the sink? Thanks in advance.
A: Laundry sink faucets usually depend on the size and style of the room. For instance, a large fancy laundry room with nice cabinets, countertops and an undermount sink may look best with a high-end kitchen faucet.
But, in most cases (such as in my own house), the laundry room sink may be just a free-standing tub sink.
In this case, I recommend you get a quality utility style faucet. Some laundry sinks even come with matching utility faucets. Utility faucets are durable and ideal for common cleaning tasks. They usually feature a swinging spout with a threaded end to attach a hose and two lever handles to control hot and cold water separately.
Remember, the point of a laundry sink is for working, so get a utility faucet that works best for you.
