Choosing the Finish of Your Clawfoot Tub Feet
A clawfoot tub is a beautiful centerpiece for the bathroom that also happens to offer a relaxing soaking environment. However, many homeowners love the clawfoot tubs in their homes but can find it difficult to choose the right style. There are a number of clawfoot styles to choose from, along with solid bases that cradle the curved bottom of a tub. We’ve got a variety of finishes to choose from. Find out the best way to pick your clawfoot tub with these helpful tips.
Clawfoot tub feet are one of the largest accents to the tub. Making sure the feet match the design of the bathroom while also supporting the elegance of the tub is utmost important. Finish options range from Brushed Nickel, Polished Brass, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Polished Chrome to White. All of these finishes look great paired with a clawfoot tub. The best way to choose one is by comparing the finish against your bathroom or future design plans.
Another design feature on a clawfoot tub is the faucet. These faucets are offered in many different finishes like the tub feet and come in two style options, wall mount or deck. A wall mount faucet attaches to the wall of the tub and supplies water access. The deck mount faucet is attached directly to the top of the tub and also provides water access. The deck and wall mount Clawfoot Tub Faucets come in Black, Brass, Bronze, Chrome and Nickel. Deciding which styles and finishes work best comes down to the color scheme of your bathroom and other hardware so that the tub faucet doesn’t hinder your bathroom’s style.
Now that you’ve picked your perfect tub, it’s time to put it in the bathroom. Clawfoot tubs can be a heavy tub to move into your home. Be sure to have a few pairs of hands to help lift and guide the tub into the bathroom. It’s most important to be extra careful when moving the tub to eliminate risk of injury or damage to the tub. After the tub is settled in its new room, installing the faucet must be done by someone with plumbing expertise. Finally, turn on the water and enjoy a nice soak!
