Pedestal Freestanding Design
Cast iron Pedestal Tubs are available in design styles which are appealing 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 one bathing can lie 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 will be mounted. It is not a common site to see a rolled rim tub with a pedestal base.
Being aware of the available space in the bathroom and the positioning of the in-home water supply lines 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.
Some Freestanding 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 may have the same classic rolled rim, but with this style, 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 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 Tub 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 style of shoe when checked out from the side. This design style truly allows the one bathing to recline on the slopping tub wall while relaxing in during the bath. Slipper tubs are readily available in a variety of sizes. Like the rolled rim tubs, one end of a single slipper is where the faucet is installed and faucets are installed in the center of the rim for a double slipper tub.
The final 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 pedestal 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 ends 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 cast iron tubs is that when they heat up with hot water, they 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".
