Specific Pedestal Free Standing Design
Cast iron Pedestal or Free Standing tubs are available in design styles which are appealing in different for different types of bathroom designs The first design is called a rolled rim. These tubs are level front to back with no rise on either end. One end of the bathtub has a smooth, sloped end so the bather can lay back in the tub, resting their head on the cast iron tub. The other end of the tub is where the drain hole is located and where the faucet would be set up. These tubs could consist of either a bathtub wall mount faucet, a deck mounted faucet (this type has the faucet on the edge or deck of the bathtub), or the tub may have no faucet holes on it at all, & would then require a freestanding faucet or a bathroom wall faucet. Each design has its very own charm. Knowing the available space in the bathroom and the positioning of the water supply will allow you estimate which of these faucet styles will function best for your home. If you have room for a tub, then we have a tub for you. Our smallest clawfoot tub is 48 inches. One of the 48 inch tubs is a slipper tub and one is a rolled rim tub. If your master bath has all the room you will ever need, we have cast iron clawfoot or pedestal tubs that are as big as 72 inches and a double slipper Mexican copper tub that is 80 inches. Big, roomy and perfect for two.
Some Freestanding & Pedestal tubs are called double ended. With this style, both ends of the bath tub are created to allow a person to recline at either end of the tub. They have the same classic rolled rim design as the formerly stated, but with this design, the faucet is placed in the middle of the bathtub. Once again, you may pick a faucet which is installed on the rim of the tub or you might choose to have a freestanding or bathroom wall placed faucet. You can search our site and find the perfect faucet for your tub. We keep in stock the English Telephone Gooseneck Faucet and the Classic British Telephone Faucets. We also have Roman Tub fillers that fit the mood of our elegant tubs.
The most-popular design of Pedestal or Free Standing tubs is the slipper style. The Single Slipper-Style Pedestal tubs are unequaled in the bathtub industry. One end of the bathtub is elevated above the foot of the bathtub to develop a style that resembles a slipper when checked out from the side. This design style truly allows the bather to lay back on the slopping tub wall while relaxing in during the bath. Slipper tubs are readily available in a large variety of sizes. Like the rolled rim tubs, one end of a slipper is where the faucet is installed.
The last style of cast iron tub we provide is the Double Slipper Cast Iron Tub. These tubs are quite beautiful and are often times big enough to accommodate two people at the same time. The double ended bathtub requires that the faucet is put in the middle of the tub on the side. The drain for the tub will be found in the center and possibly to one side slightly. Dual slippers are identified by both sides sweeping up. The higher the slipper ends the more glamorous the tub looks. When you get a tub that is longer and wider it is perfect for you and your special someone to share a sudsy bubble bath.
Another great thing about these specialty tubs is that they heat up quickly and maintain the heat for a good long while. You have nothing to lose and lots to gain when you purchase a specialty designer tub for your home. We call it "Affordable Elegance".
