Great Laundry Room with Old Sink

I especially love the vintage porcelain sink with built-in drainboard. It looks perfect in this wonderful laundry room. The wall drying rack is nice too. via

It is a perfect laundry room. I love the porcelain sink too. I have a large old house that was built in 1935, with a rather small laundry room. When my parents purchased the house in 1965, the widow who owned it was rather destitute, and had rooms closed off. Consequently there wasn't much done to the house in the way of upgrades. It was pretty much still stuck in the '30's, and since the house was built in the '30's, there was little in the way of appliances that existed then. There was no clothes dryer. Only a very old washer, a large sink that was used to wash clothes by hand, and a service porch with a clothes line. My parents had to remove the large old sink in order to put in a dryer.

I love the floating shelves too, and the wood counter above the washer and dryer.

PERFECTION. I wouldn't change a thing.

The house we moved into in 1957 had a sink like that in an upstairs hallway. It appeared they had once made a sort of kitchen in that hallway. Which I never understood since you could only access the upstairs from outside by going kitty-cornered through the downstairs kitchen.

lisa -- That 1930 unimproved house sounds like my cottage. I think it's always good to find a house with good bones that is untouched so you can make it into your dream house without ripping out any bad renovations. My cottage was build in the late 30 and was a one owner home until I bought it.

Love the sink! It's in such pristine condition. A gal I knew years ago had an old sink like that but with drainboards on BOTH sides!

You're right about finding an old house with good bones that has been untouched. The house required lots of upfront maintenance - a new roof, which my dad was totally unprepared for. (In those days there was no such thing as disclosure.) The kitchen was completely remodeled. Unfortunately, my father, (who worked in the investment business), lost his shirt shortly thereafter, and the remodeling my parents planned was never completed. So now, I'm the next Earl who has to be the one not to drop the ball, as Lord Grantham would say. It's a lovely old home, but in need of lots of work, and I'm not sure I will be able to accomplish it. All it takes is money - where do you want to start?!

Ah, old cast iron enamel sinks are what cottage dreams are made of. And they're great for washing both babies and dogs! I want an old one in the back garden. I particularly like the ones with drainboards like you show here.
