Best Clawfoot Tubs for Small Bathrooms (Part Two)

Whether you are remodeling a powder room, converting a closet space, or just want to add a new clawfoot bathtub to a small bathroom; here are a few product suggestions based on what our customers have been saying.
This Tub Package containing a 54 inch clawfoot tub and faucet with showerhead is ideal for those who want to do more than soak in their bathtub. Julie from Ohio chose this tub set when she “[converted] a 5’ x 8’ closet space in [her] old century home into a small bath”.

You may be reluctant to install a clawfoot tub into a small area because of its weight. An acrylic bathtub is a good alternative to a cast iron one because you can still have the look and feel of a classic Clawfoot Bathtub, but at a much lighter weight. Another customer found this tub “[weighed] next to nothing and was a piece of cake to carry in”. In addition to the ease of transporting, they told us that it is “by far the roomiest small tub [they’ve] seen”.
