Trend Alert - Freestanding Bathtubs
Freestanding baths have become one of the hottest style trends. Some people are looking for that “old world charm”, while others gravitate toward freestanding baths to position them as works of art with a more contemporary flair. By their very nature, they draw attention to themselves, thereby easily becoming the focal point of the bathroom.

Traditionally, freestanding baths had been constructed of enamel-coated cast iron and sometimes supported by “feet”. As a result, they are sometimes referred to as “claw foot tubs”, even though all of today’s freestanding bathtubs do not have claw feet. Although cast iron freestanding baths are still available, other materials have become more desirable because cast iron has several disadvantages:
