Clawfoot bathtubs are a household feature that is so “out” they are “in” again. In addition to the old classics, modern versions are popping up in renovated bathrooms, and being touted as a place to get away from it all and relax. Thomas Aquinas said that “Sorrow can be alleviated by a good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.” Where do we sign up? If you are lucky enough to have a clawfoot tub in your bathroom, we want to make sure you create the most elegant, relaxing, sorrow alleviating space possible. Curtain tracks for clawfoot tubs offer many design and function options for doing just this.
If your tub doubles as a shower, a curtain is a must. You will need a sturdy curtain that does not billow, such as our Aquaguard shower curtain, and our 6100 Flexible Curtain Track is a sleek alternative to standard clawfoot tub enclosures. It can be mounted on the ceiling and hand-bent to curve around the circumference of the tub.
Even if your tub will be used exclusively for baths, there is still a place for curtains. Some clawfoot tubs, especially those located in the center of the bathroom, can leave you feeling a bit, well, exposed. If you want to keep your privates private, a ceiling mounted curtain track and drapery hardware will create a virtual wall and allow you to relax. You can mount the track all the way around the tub, create a horseshoe pattern, or mount the track such that it sections off the tub portion of the room, rather than hangs right up against the tub. When the tub isn’t being used, the curtain can be pulled back to open up the bathroom and allow you to show off the beautiful tub to visitors.
LET IT ALL HANGOUT
If you’re more interested in style than modesty, consider using a ceiling mounted curtain track and drapery hardware to hang a long, sheer curtain around the outside of the tub. This will allow you to keep your views and open feel, while creating a sense of the mysterious and exotic.
We would love to help you create the ultimate bathing/relaxing space by using curtain tracks for your clawfoot tub. Give us a call at 888-434-7444!
