Clawfoot Slipper Tub

Clawfoot slipper tubs are an excellent choice for traditional or transitional style bathrooms, including the charming farmhouse chic aesthetic. These tubs are elevated by decorative claw feet, which come in various finishes such as white, black, chrome, and bronze. The elevated design makes them an ideal option for bathers seeking easy access to a freestanding tub.

Some designs of clawfoot slipper tubs feature a roll top, adding a vintage touch to the bathroom decor. The rolled rim edges of these tubs are gently curved, creating a more rounded and classic appearance.

For bathers seeking utmost comfort and ergonomic support, double slipper clawfoot tubs are available. These tubs are designed with elevated backrests on both ends, allowing you to relax while giving you the option to elevate your feet during bathing.

If you desire a slipper tub with a built-in shower option, a clawfoot slipper tub is a fantastic choice. Clawfoot tub kits provide a convenient solution for adding a shower to your freestanding clawfoot slipper tub, offering versatility and functionality.

Pedestal Slipper Tub

Pedestal slipper tubs are highly favored in contemporary design, known for their elegant style and unique pedestal base that lifts the tub slightly off the floor. Departing from traditional claw feet, these tubs utilize a plinth or pedestal, providing a modern twist on the classic soaker tub concept, as highlighted by HGTV.
