Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Shower Curtains for Clawfoot Tubs

Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Shower Curtains for Clawfoot Tubs
By Curtain-Tracks 6 years ago 17425 Views 4 comments


No longer relegated strictly to Victorian-style bathrooms, clawfoot tubs pop up in modern eclectic bathrooms as a focal piece. They make a fashionable addition to any bathroom of any style, and can make even the drabbest of powder rooms seem like a luxurious retreat. Add to this that some clawfoot tubs cost a pretty penny and most people want to make them very prominent visually, which means they don’t want it surrounded by curtains. This is great when giving new guests the house tour, but what about when it’s shower time? We are envisioning being cold, feeling exposed, and getting water all over the floor. We think, therefore, with curtain tracks, clawfoot tubs and shower curtains are a match made in heaven.

Clawfoot_Tub Shower Curtains Used Around a Clawfoot Tub


Our loyal readers know we’ve previously discussed curtain tracks for clawfoot tubs. Most traditional clawfoot tub shower curtains are hung with a wall and ceiling mounted, oval shaped rod. But we are not following the rules, right? We need to release our creativity and give ourselves the flexibility of a ceiling-mounted curtain track. Switching to tracks allows you to decide where your curtain is going to be, rather than the rod dictating the location. Hang a nylon liner just inside the rim to catch water, and a floor-length decorative curtain around the outside of the tub, or use the curtain as a virtual wall and partition off that side of the bathroom. When its house-tour time just pull back the curtains, stack your bathtub tray with books and candles, and your bathroom is ready for its close-up.


If you are clinging to tradition, and like the look that the wall-mounted rod gives, (the curtain not reaching all the way to the ceiling), you can recreate it with a ceiling-mounted track and our privacy cubicle curtains, which can be ordered with transparent mesh on the top twenty inches of the panel. These curtains are available in multiple fabrics and colors with features like antimicrobial treatment, stain resistance, and light blocking, among others. We have enough options that you are sure to find a fashionable solution to the clawfoot tub shower curtain dilemma.

The photo of your clawfoot tub with the transparent shower curtain is gorgeous! I have never seen one that is mounted on a tall ceiling like that! The length of the long shower curtain adds a dramatic look that is lovely!
