I know, I know - I've got a gourmet kitchen, and a basement I can rollerskate in, and a giant bathtub and hardwood floors and a front porch and yet I pick "laundry tub" as #9? Yes. Yes I did.
We actually chose to install the tub in the garage, rather than upstairs in the laundry room. Fact is, I need a place to dump stinky wet kayaking gear BEFORE it enters the house. A laundry tub upstairs made no sense to me at all - I would have to take muddy, gross things over the hardwood floors, up the steps, across the new carpet and into the laundry room, all the while, dripping mud and gook and lord knows what.
So in the garage it will stay.
No more will I have paint in my kitchen or bathroom sinks! No more will I have to soak kayaking gear in my bathtub! Oh! Even nasty cat boxes might benefit from the tub!
And so, Laundry Tub, you are my #9.
