Unique Uses of Clawfoot Tub Faucets
Clawfoot tub faucets are designed to assist clawfoot tubs in providing access to hot and cold water. Although these faucets are described as “Clawfoot”, it does not necessarily mean they are only functional for tubs.
As of recently, Clawfoot Tub Faucets can be seen in uniquely designed spaces ranging from dog baths to floral decor pots. Who knew these faucets could be so versatile? These designs are redefining the use of tub faucets throughout a home.
If you have pups at home, you know how they are similar to having furry children, right? They play, eat, get dirty and therefore need baths just like the rest of us. Dog baths can be messy when using a walk in shower or even when using a regular bathtub. Pups don’t prefer to be standing still and because of this, water gets EVERYWHERE. A recent trend is the creation of a dog wash station in the bathroom or laundry room. Dog wash stations are very similar to walk in showers for humans but they have tub faucets instead of shower heads. Tub faucets have a softer splash accompanied by a steady stream of water that is much more ideal for bathing dogs.
Clawfoot tub faucets can also be used as decor in bathrooms and laundry rooms, or anywhere there is access to plumbing. These faucets can essentially be versatile and can be used as an elegant access to water for indoor plants. Similar to the dog wash station, these faucets are much easier to manage than hoses or showerheads. Therefore clawfoot tub faucets provide water where needed while also accenting the room by acting as decor. The tub faucets, of course, pair well with clawfoot tubs but contribute to the vintage and elegant design that makes these tubs so unique.
Finally, this unique use of the faucet is certainly a cute one. Who knew clawfoot tub faucets could be used to occupy kiddos during bath time? The hand shower can double as a fake telephone. Remember the phones that had cords? They look very similar to the hand showers on these faucets. A very adorable idea, to say the least and a good way to make bath time fun.
