Unique Tub Styles
Clawfoot tubs have been around for over a century. In the beginning, there was a small selection of sizes and styles produced. However, in recent years, the clawfoot tub market has expanded to include new styles and larger sizes. A variety of classic clawfoot bathtub sizes allows everyone to find the perfect size of a bathtub. There are homes with limited space so it is good to know there are small tubs available for that space.
The Tub Connection also offers a wide variety of styles. The classic "rolled rim clawfoot tub" models were some of the first styles to be offered to the public. Rolled rim tubs are often considered the original style of cast iron tub. There is one sloped end for the one bathing to recline on and at the opposite end of the slope the faucet is to be mounted; either on the rim of the tub ("Deck Mount") or on the wall inside the tub ("Bathtub Wall Mount") or a freestanding style; you are given the option to choose which faucet mount you prefer and remember we offer our faucets and plumbing packages in the most popular finishes.
Another style we offer is the Double Ended Clawfoot Tub. The ends of the tub are identical and provide a comfortable place for one to recline at either end. These models have a classic look and have been popular since they were first introduced. The faucet placement for this tub is on in the middle of the tub.

Even More Slippers
The slipper clawfoot tub is definitely a popular vintage style which is still available today. The slipper design has one end which is raised up to provide incredible head, neck and back support. The raised end creates a slipper-like appearance. A faucet should be on the lower end of the tub. It can be mounted on the rim of the tub, for both acrylic and cast iron tubs, or you may choose to have no faucet holes in your tub and use a bathroom wall mount or a freestanding faucet. All of these options are perfect for the Slipper style tub.
Another vintage style tub is the Double Slipper Clawfoot Tub. This tub is very elegant in appearance as both ends sweep up allowing for one or two to comfortably recline. Double slippers are available with no faucet holes or holes on the rim of the tub at its lowest point between the two raised sides. If you choose a tub with no faucet holes you may opt to use a bathroom wall-mounted faucet.
Cast iron clawfoot tubs are extremely popular among homeowners. Because they are made of metal and very heavy do not attempt to move all alone. To protect the metal from corrosion, the interior of cast iron tubs are coated with ceramic or porcelain. Porcelain enamel is very smooth and is easy to keep clean. Be sure to follow cleaning instructions for Cast Iron and Acrylic Clawfoot Bathtubs in order to preserve the finish.
With advancements in materials over several years, Acrylic has come on the scene as a popular alternative to cast iron. Unlike the iron tubs, acrylic is very lightweight. One advantage of this is Acrylic tubs require fewer people and less effort moving and installing. Do not think that lightweight means low quality. Acrylic is very durable and is manufactured to last.
A vintage style tub is not complete without the classic clawfeet. The four clawfeet are attached at the four corners beneath the tub, and available in a variety of finishes such as polished chrome, brushed nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. However, other finishes like white, glossy or matte black may also be an option. Styles of feet include ball and claw feet, lion paw feet and cannonball feet.
