We all know the makings of the perfect bath: A splash of essential oil, a few rose petals, and the new Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran collab on repeat. But the one thing you probably haven’t thought about changing up for your most luxurious bathing experience ever? The tub itself.
Clawfoot tubs are the most opulent way to bathe (case in point: Beyoncé and Jay Z have one in their palatial NOLA pad). And with the ability to turn even the most bare-bones bathroom into a full-blown spa, you’d better believe they’re not just easy on the eyes. They also have seriously powerful bathing benefits, as well. Because the tubs are deeper than most built-in baths, they allow you to fully submerge your body in the water to reap the maximum benefit from your time spent in the tub.
“The beauty of clawfoot tubs is their timeless elegance and high style,” says Phoenix-based designer Andrea Bazilus of Red Egg Design. “Spa baths are known for being luxurious soaking tubs, and a clawfoot design will give any homeowner the same tranquil feel. Additionally, clawfoot tubs keep a bathroom feeling light and airy since they float off of the floor.”
According to fellow designer Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25, these luxed-out tubs can also work as the centerpiece of any room, which means once you have one installed, you don’t have to worry about going overboard with the rest of your decor. Ready to invest in a full-blown bathroom remodel that will make you feel like the queen (or even better, like queen Bey) of bath time? Here, the lust-worthy clawfoot bathing tubs that will instantly upgrade your bathroom.
