Classic Rolled Rim Tubs
When you think of clawfoot tubs, you probably think of the classic rolled rim variety. With their four ornate feet and their level rim, this model of bathtub is what most people think about when they think about a clawfoot tub. Rolled rim tubs are available in a variety of lengths and from a few different manufacturers. They can be purchased in lengths as long as sixty-seven inches long or as short as forty-eight inches long. Rolled Rim tubs are the same height all the way around the tub. A bath tub that is raised on one or both ends is called a slipper or double slipper tub.
The "classic" clawfoot bath tub has one end that is inclined. This is the end where one may lay back and relax as they bathe. The other end is straight or "the snub end" and this is where the faucet of the tub is installed. Unlike a slipper or double slipper tub, a classic clawfoot has a level top. On one end of the tub, you can install either a bathtub wall mounted faucet or a deck mounted faucet. A bathtub wall mounted faucet is one that is installed inside of the bathtub on one end of the tub. These faucets are normally smaller than those that mount on the deck because it is actually on the inside of the bath tub. Deck mounted faucets, like the bathtub wall mounted, are installed on the foot end of the tub. However, these faucets are placed on top of the rim of the bath and they can be a little larger in size. Some classic clawfoot tubs may be ordered with no faucet holes. These models would require a freestanding faucet or a bathroom wall mounted faucet depending upon where the plumbing is in the room. In the case of a bathroom wall mounted faucet, the claw foot tub is simply placed close enough to the bath room wall for the water to flow into the bath tub. if that placement seems too close to the bathroom wall for your taste, The Tub Connection has wall shanks available that will extend the faucet away from the bath room wall either 2 inches or 6 inches, so don't feel like placement is going to be an issue if you have to use a bath room wall mounted faucet. Additionally, 2 inch and 6 inch deckmount risers can be used to lift the deckmount faucet up on the bath tub rim to give you the exact look you want for your plumbing. The drain of the Classic Clawfoot style bath tub is nearly always going to be at the foot end of the tub so it is directly under the flow of water.
Like all of our other models, these models may be customized to match the style you are looking for. In most cases where purchasers are looking for customization, they request to have the tub painted a certain color; when you have a specific color you like, we should be able to create that color on the tub. Be sure to give us a call to discuss any customization requests as they require a high degree of specialization to complete. Nearly anything is possible in a solid color and our on-staff artisan can speak with you regarding additional customization.
The feet of the classic clawfoot tub can be customized. Most of our customers request claw feet in chrome, brushed nickel, or oil rubbed bronze. There are other colors which are available as well. In the past, we have received requests for Black, Matte Black, White, and others. Though not all of these colors are available in faucet finishes, sometimes you can match the finish on the feet with that of the plumbing fixtures. This is particularly true of chrome, brushed nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. You may notice that some claw foot tubs have clawfeet that are a bit different in their appearance. Please note that the clawfeet shown with the bathtub is the foot style that is available for that particular tub. If you love the Lion's Paw Feet and just have to have them, then limit your search to tubs with Lion's Paw Feet because tub feet are not interchangeable. The Clawfeet are typically Ball and Claw Feet, Lion's Paw Feet and Eagle's Claw Feet or Cannonball Feet.
