Fitting a deep bowl, maybe with some countertop space next to it, in your utility is incredibly handy.
Need to pre-soak dirty sports kit? No problem. Want to handwash delicates? You’ve got a dedicated space. Has the dog managed to get its paws exceptionally muddy? If you choose the right sink size for your pet, you can rinse its paws right there rather than in the bathtub.
If you’re entertaining, it’s also ideal to hide dirty dishes from sight until you begin clearing up in earnest. Not to mention the added work surface is ideal as extra food preparation space.
