The timeless elegance of a Claw Foot tub graces many-a-bathroom, and many consider having one a sign of good taste and elegance. Claw foot bathtubs are usually made of cast iron. However, many manufacturers now fabricate this timeless style with acrylic or porcelain.
True antique claw foot tubs are collected, restored, and even coveted to be the prize centerpiece of their bathrooms.
When working with your bathroom remodeling contractor, be aware of the different types of claw foot bathtubs so you can find exactly the one you want:
When considering a claw foot bathtub for you remodel, remember that these tubs do not work well as a base for a shower, since they are free standing and to not have a base mounted to the floor.

Be sure to contact your bathroom contractor to see if a claw foot tub is within your grasp.
