My master bathroom only has one sink, but the cabinet is long enough for 2 sinks.

I am trying to figure out if it would be worh the money and resale value to add another sink?

Please advise.

yes!! If you have the room and can afford it, Do it. It probably won't bring in any more money at resale time, but it will make a good selling point.

I agree with Padgett2. An extra option (2 sinks versus only 1 sink) is always a good selling point for resale value. The more "eye candy" the better. Go big or stay home!!!!

I really would have liked to have bought a home with a double sink on my recent home purchase. But the house I bought only had one sink. It can make the difference between two otherwise similar homes, but I think it's unlikely to affect resale that much.

Absolutely, it is worth the money to add an additional sink.

Worth every penny you spend. Especially as I presume you are going to upgrade the counter top when you add the 2nd sink.

Default Double Sink it is...

Thanks to your input, I have decided to go with a double sink. I will probably not upgrade the counter top, because there are other things I would still like to do to the house. Also, I like how the sink and counter are combined, it's quicker and easier to clean.

In addition, I will take down that huge mirror and put up two framed ones. Also, I will change the light fixture and put up a double light fixture over each mirror. Because I am losing counter space, due to the second sink, I am thinking about adding decorative shelves in between the two mirrors.

Thanks for all your input.

Double sinks add value to your home. I would suggest putting one in if you have the money.
