Claw tub – Keith Scott Morton First made in the United States at the end of the 19th century, the claw-foot tub remained stunning until built-in bathtubs were benefited in the 1930s. Today, the freestanding bathtub enjoys a revival due to its elegant style and the luxurious bathing experience it provides. Traditional bathtubs are contoured at the end where you lie down while the drain end is not.
Slipper baths are the same but have a significantly higher back at one end. Dual-ended tubs, contoured at both ends with a center-set drainage, are another option. Leg style: Claw feet can replicate the animal’s paws or feature more abstract designs. Manufacturers often sell their feet separately so you can choose style and finish.

Tap: Like supply lines, drains and overflows, taps are typically sold separately from the tub. Consult a plumber to determine which is best. Remember that cast iron tanks can weigh close to 1,000 pounds when filled. Floors in most homes built for code are able to withstand this weight.
Impart authentic old fashioned style with a vintage claw-foot tub. Check out salvage yards, antique shops and online auction sites for a wide selection. Five-foot-long bathtubs – the most common at some point – are often cheapest. And a straightforward bath provides a higher price than one with scratches or stains, although refinishing can repair superficial damage.
