Swedish Style Soaking Tubs
Swedish Soaking Tubs
By now you have probably seen the photos of our Swedish Soaking tubs. Aren't they beautiful? Everything about them is perfect. Each of our Swedish Soaking Tubs is made from Cast Iron so, while they appear to be identical, there are very subtle nuances that make them slightly different so in reality, each one is unique and one-of-a-kind.
Our 54 inch Swedish Slipper Clawfoot Tub "Gentry" has a 42 gallon of water capacity. That is a full 18 inches of soaking water inside the bath tub. Want to talk about relaxation? How could you not relax with 42 gallons of very warm water surrounding your aching body? "Holt" is our 58 inch Cast Iron Swedish Slipper Clawfoot Soaking Tub and it holds an amazing 52 gallons of water. The therapeutic benefits of your body in that amount of super warm water is immeasurable. Just imagine that you can soak in your tub whenever you want to because it is at home.
Each of these Swedish Soaking Tubs is Cast Iron and once they heat up with your hot water they will retain that heat for a very long time. The slipper end of the tub allows you to lay back and stretch out your back and neck. Your head can actually lay on the smooth porcelain interior, which will allow your neck to totally relax. There are just too many benefits to having a Swedish Soaking tub not to drive home the point.
Ball and Claw Feet
Both of these tubs have Ball and Claw Feet with a beautiful adornment that cups the rounded edges of the tub. The feet are available in Polished Chrome, White, Matte or Glossy Black, Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze. Anyone of these finishes will compliment the bath tub. Remember that we also offer faucets and plumbing packages in Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze.
If the pristine white of the Swedish Soaker tub doesn't quite fit in with the decor or vision for your bath room, no worries. The exterior of our cast iron and acrylic tubs can be painted so you can truly create the look in your mind's eye. You won't have to choose one of our colors, you go to your neighborhood Home Depot, Lowes, or Sherwin Williams and get the color swatch that shows the color you want, send it to us and abracadabra! We paint your tub the color that you choose.
What About a Faucet
The Swedish Soaker Tubs don't have faucet holes on the rim, so installing the tub will require freestanding plumbing or a faucet that is in the bathroom wall and the tub will need to be placed near the wall so the water can flow into the tub.
Easy to Care For
A Cast iron tub Is so easy to keep clean. With the proper care, a tub like this will last forever. Below are some tips on cleaning your cast iron tub. It is important to recognize that the tub has been covered a white porcelain finish over the cast iron. If the tub was not covered with the white porcelain it would undoubtedly appear like the cast iron frying pan you fry your potatoes in.
The best method to cleanse the porcelain is using soft soaps that are totally non-abrasive.
Initially, let me inform you exactly what NOT to use. Do not use anything that is abrasive like:
Bar Keepers Friend; or
These products may etch or scratch and dull the finish on your tub.
It may be best to apply baking soda or soft soap products that plainly mention they are non-abrasive. After cleaning with a non-abrasive product, rinse well and wipe with a soft washclothe.
As suggested before, with any type of cleaning products always rinse well.
