Claw foot tubs add charm to a bathroom and will be the focal point in the room. Claw foot tubs are a specially designed bathtub that was around in the late 19 century. These tubs have a special design that allows them to stand on four claw shaped feet, hence the name claw foot. They were made with a very deep shape that allows for the holding of more water. This shape also allows the user to be able to relax in the bathtub with water that can go all the way up to their chin. If you are even thinking about purchasing a claw foot tub, you are probably pretty conscious about style, design, mood, or ambience of the bathroom and ultimately the whole house. This style of tub offers a unique feel that no other type of tub can really give.
