Sooo I currently have my small office which is in a kitchen of our designated 2 family home that we use as our one family home. The stove got pulled and I have a huge high back chair in its place. We still have a fridge in there and there are Old 80's countertops and cabinets/drawers one section has a sink.
We had long talk yesterday about converting it to baby's room and I suggested we demo all cabs to really open up the room, move the fridge downstairs to basement for extra storage, give fresh coat of soft tranquil baby paint, and then have minimal furniture up there. Convertible crib, a family heirloom dresser which currently resides in the dining room moved up to be the dresser for baby's room and then add changing table to the top.
All we'd need is a rocker/glider of some sort and a bookshelf of some sort to store books and a few toys. Add a rug and voila! Baby room.
My husband, sister in law, and her husband will be helping with the demo and all of them thought it would be a good idea to keep the sink. I tend towards worry (nooo you're all shocked right? lol) and I think ahead to toddler-dom and worry about having a sink that can get hot and burn someone but the idea of having a built in bathing zone for the first year isn't horrible I suppose?
Husband in law said you can cap off the sink at any time for safety and not have water hooked up once we decide we don't want to have it usable anymore.
But I wonder, do all of you think this is a pro or con to have in nursery?
Just curious and welcome all opinions.
*I should add my hubs main reason for wanting to keep sink is because if we ever wanted to sell as 2 family assuming it would bring more on the market, then he wanted to keep it in there.
