Q: Do double sinks in bathrooms add value to a house?
Is this a feature that buyers / people in general are interested in? Thanks.
A: Agree!!! At least 72"-84" for a double vanity
I once designed a double sink vanity, but the countertop installer cut the hole in the sinks in the wrong place only 3" from the side walls leaving no elbow room. Disaster! You need at least 9-12" from a side wall to the edge of the sink for elbow room, and at least 24-30" between sinks for counter space. That is 72"-84" wall to wall of space for a usable double vanity with a 15" sink. Double vanities are great, but only with proper space.

A: Yes if
Double sinks add value if you have enough room for them. Often people cram 2 sinks into a four foot vanity and eliminate almost all counter space. Counter space in a bathroom is important. Think about all the little things you use to get ready for a day. If you have 6 feet of space for a double sink setup, giving you counter space in the middle and enough room for 2 people to use the sinks simultaneously then it is a good idea. Most people do not need two sinks in their bathroom. It only benefits couples that have to get ready at the exact same time or the type of person that really wants their own bathroom space. The added value to the home is generally not worth adding a second sink unless you are already doing a bathroom remodel or a large bathroom repair, however the functionality has major benefits for the users.
