Are you in the search for a new bathtub? With so many styles available, it can be hard to choose. Here are the top reasons we suggest choosing a clawfoot one:
Easy Installation: Bathroom remodels can be very complicated, daunting, and laborious. The bathtub installation is particularly difficult in many cases. However, this could not be further from the truth if you pick a bathtub with the clawfoot design. One of the most appealing characteristics of tubs with this design is that they are incredibly easy to install. You do not have to remove walls or caulk and edges, just place the tub where you want it and connect the plumbing. For this reason, these tubs are also top choices for rooms that are being converted to bathrooms. Their freestanding style makes these tubs versatile in terms of placement as well.
Comfortable baths: People who enjoy soaking in the tub and take baths are ideal candidates for this style of the tub. The contour and shape of a clawfoot tub allow you to recline and comfortably soak in the bath. Additionally, these tubs are much deeper than most drop-in tubs and also keep heat in very well. With this kind of tub, you can comfortably soak in the bath for a long time without the water becoming cold.
Durability: Replacing your bathtub only to have it fall apart within a few years is a terrible nightmare. When you upgrade such important elements of your home, you want them to last for many years to come. There are many stories about people restoring old victorian homes but keeping the original clawfoot bathtub because it is such an excellent condition. These tubs are built to last and you can count on their durability.
Traditional aesthetic: Homeowners looking to create a classic, traditional bathroom aesthetic should definitely consider this style of bathtub. The clawfoot bathtub has barely changed in the two centuries they have existed, so they have a distinctly classic look with striking claw features.
These elegant bathtubs have a luxurious look and feel that will transform your bathroom.
Easy to clean: Stained, dirty, or grimy bathtubs greatly detract from the overall appearance of your bathroom. Many tubs are simply difficult to keep clean. If you get a clawfoot tub with a hand shower, it will be very easy to clean. You can use the flexible shower hose to rinse every single part of the bathtub. Additionally, the raised style of this tub makes it easier and more comfortable to wash your child or pet in the tub and then efficiently clean up afterward.

Have questions about ordering your own custom tub? Review the list of questions and answers below to see if you can find the information you need. If not, get in touch right away for assistance.
How much is a custom bathtub?
The cost of a custom bathtub can vary wildly depending on the size, material, manufacturer, and many other factors. For a quality tub, you can expect to spend at least a few thousand dollars on this purchase, and perhaps much more. It’s important to remember that this is the type of purchase you only want to make once – installing bathtubs can be challenging depending on the space available, so you want to order a quality product from a proven dealer and plan to leave the tub in its new home for the long run.
Are all bathtubs 60 inches?
Absolutely not! While 60 inches is a common tub size, you are certainly not limited to that dimension when planning out your upcoming bathroom project. When you order from CopperSmith, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of sizes to make sure the tub you receive is a perfect fit for the space you have available. Specifically, many buyers opt for a longer tub than the 60’’ standard, whether because they want to create a bold focal point in the room or because they’d like to make more space for taller individuals. Take accurate measurements of your space and order a tub that is going to suit it nicely.
What is a good depth for a soaking tub?
If your goal with an upcoming bathtub purchase is to be able to slide into the water for a soak at the end of a long day, you’ll need to make sure the tub is deep enough to make that happen. Remember, the height of the tub is not the amount of water you’ll be able to put inside, because you need some room for the water to be displaced when you get in. While even a 24’’ tall tub can get the job done, you might find a better deep soak is available when you go for 30’’ or even 36’’ of height.
What is the difference between a soaking tub and a bathtub?
As the name would suggest, the difference between these two types of tubs is what you’ll be able to do in the tub once you fill it with water and step in. A normal tub is shallower than a soaking tub, so an adult might struggle to fully submerge for a bath. With a soaking tub, the sides of the tub come up at least a couple of feet off the ground, if not higher. This lets you put more water in the bath and makes for an immersive, relaxing experience.
What is the most durable material for a bathtub?
There are plenty of different materials available for bathtubs, but consider one of the metal options if you want a tub that is going to stand the test of time. At CopperSmith, we are proud to sell tubs created with metals such as brass, copper, and stainless steel. Not only will any of these metal options serve you well in the coming years as far as durability, but they will look great and will become a beautiful focal point in your newly-designed bathroom.
How long do metal bathtubs last?
When you choose a metal bathtub from a trusted name like CopperSmith, you can plan on getting an impressive lifespan from that tub. Whether you go with stainless steel, copper, zinc, or brass, the tub can be expected to play a prominent role in your bathroom for many years to come. The exact lifespan of the tub will depend on how often it is used and how it is treated, but 20 years or more of service is certainly a possible outcome.
Can metal bathtubs crack?
You don’t need to worry about cracking when you opt for a metal bathtub, as long as it is sourced from a reputable company like CopperSmith. Our tubs are built to last and are finished in a way that allows them to stand up to many years of regular use. As long as you treat the tub properly and don’t drop heavy items on it, the tub will remain in one piece.
