Pedestal Tub Instead of a Traditional Tub
My friend Alinda loves the look of claw-foot tubs. She is not alone, as they have made a quite a come-back due to their old world charm and shapely curves. But among their shortcomings is the fact that cleaning the floor space underneath them can be a pain.
For a similar appearance that is elegant and easier to maintain, why not get a pedestal tub instead. With generous soaking space and the graceful lines of their claw-foot cousins, they rest on a solid base instead of feet. These models look more modern and take up less room than the whirlpool versions that everyone wanted in the ’90s, and they add a touch of spa-like luxury to the simplest of baths.
If you have the space, and if the water source can be configured accordingly, you can place a pedestal tub at just about any spot in the bathroom that suits your needs. They also come in wide choices of lengths and widths so you don’t have to worry about conforming to a previously defined area.
