Crossing a sink and a small tub creates the perfect place to bathe pets — or kids.
Pet lovers and Moms with active little ones might have fantasized about a practical washing up spot in the utility room, something that’s ideal when the kids come all muddy or Fido needs a quick dunk. A low deep basin also seems perfect for soaking out tablecloth stains or pre-laundering a king size comforter. But I’m betting the elegant custom floor sink in this Vermont laundry room is designed for the family pooch. And what a design it is. Created by an architect for a client who collects antique tile, it qualifies as one very swanky pet sink, complete with a marble curb and polished nickel pot filler style faucet faucet plus hand spray. Relief tiles in elegant taupe and brown patterns are inset in the field of cream and taupe glazed tiles. The square tub occupies a space between the washer dryer and back door.
A wood counter rims the top of the sink and continues over the laundry machines. Overhead, a vintage rack provides a handy spot for drying towels or hanging laundry to dry or air in front of the window. Even as a non-pet household I would love the convenience of a low sink like this one or a plainer utility room floor sink that serves the same purpose.
