Streamlined Sink Options for the Art Room

If you are lucky enough to design an art room or take part in a remodel, you will find there are so many options. Word to the wise: Don’t forget about your sinks! Sinks are one of the most important parts of an art room and can make or break the clean-up flow and mess. Recently I was visiting an art room and found this sink to be ‘too cool not to share’ with all of you, especially if you are in the market for a new system.

Some of us can only dream, right? This teacher also had a utility sink in the corner of the room where she can wash up the paint brushes and do other heavy-duty clean up.
