When it comes to vintage style bathtubs, the slipper tub is the most popular style. There are two designs of slipper bathtubs to choose from; the single and double. The single has one end of the tub raised up with a reclining back. This position takes any tension off of the back and the neck. Slipper tubs will vary in how much the bathtub wall raises.
More Slipper Styles
These amazing tubs are available with clawfeet or a pedestal base. Pedestal Slipper Tubs may be found as a one-piece unit and also as two pieces. In our inventory, you will also see that acrylic tubs as well as cast iron slipper tubs. There is one last type of slipper; the double slipper tub. This amazing tub is magnificently raised on both ends of the tub. Like the single, this double slipper is available in acrylic, cast iron, and copper.
The double tub is perfect for two people to bathe at the same time. Both ends of the tub are raised up at each end. A single slipper tub is not suitable for two people as only one end of the tub rises up and the tubs are not typically wide enough for two people to recline side-by-side. A tub for two must be a minimum of 30 inches wide. At The Tub Connection, you will find double slipper tubs as long as 80 inches and as wide as 34 inches.
