10 Trendy Clawfoot Tubs: Vintage, Bold & Rustic

From on August 16, 2010 in Bathroom Remodel

Since the time I was young, when bath time ceased to be something I avoided with all my might, I’ve pined away for a pretty clawfoot tub. They seem far more sophisticated than any shower/bath combo, and would certainly encourage my love for long soaks. Here are 10 of my very absolute favorites.

clawfoot tubs striped#1—The trendy version of clawfoot just got a lot more fun and glamorous. Kohler Striped Cast-Iron Claw Foot Tub is awe-inspiring with its colorful stripes and fabulously fancy legs.

clawfoot tubs slipper#2—I’m not gonna lie—I chose this Sunrise Specialty Slipper from VintageTub purely for the chrome finishes. Set atop a wood floor with a simple yet sleek curtain? Perfection.

clawfoot tubs sunshine#3—Wow, that’s bright! The sunshine yellow tub and checkered walls with audacious black-and-white patterned floors is certainly a bold statement.

cast-iron clawfoot tubs#4—The Bella Casa Cast Iron Double Slipper offers a different design with the faucet in the middle and tub curving upward on both sides. I love the prominent feet on this model!

clawfoot tubs#5—How about some more color? The 57” Cast Iron Slipper Clawfoot Tub is shown here with a gray painted exterior and ornate white feet. Surely this would make any bathroom design pop.

white clawfoot tubs#6—This white tub blends cleanly alongside a wooden mantle and door. Tradition is preserved through salvaged tiles and pure interior decor.

outdoors clawfoot tubs#7—Saving the tub was advantageous for the space as the room turned out its natural, outdoorsy look. The clawfoot tub, aged to nothing but perfection, fits right in.

#8—Sometimes it’s all in the details - as is the case with the 67” Acrylic Double-Ended Clawfoot Tub from Classic Clawfoot Tubs. The detailing on the feet as well as the sleek design of the faucet (available in a plethora of finishes) help bring it all together.

clawfoot tubs mellow yellow#9—Time for a walk on the wild side. The Mellow Yellow clawfoot from OhMegaSalvage.com could add a funky touch to any bathroom design—or spruced up a bit if yellow just isn’t your color.

clawfoot tubs rough-hewn#10—The vintage-footed tub is center stage in the midst of the exposed “rough-hewn wall” and painted floorboards in this 1826 bath. The tub legs are square and boxy, nothing like the curved, claw-like design that is characteristic.

Since my budget can’t currently be squeezed enough to justify a new clawfoot, it’ll just have to be placed on my “If Only I Had Money List.” One day, one day…
