Pedestal bathtubs offer a clean vintage look with their matching skirted base
which unifies the tub with the bathroom floor. The pedestal style of the bathtub originated in the art deco period
in the 1920's and 30's and is still popular today. Indeed, this pedestal based unit has been updated and is
offered in Contemporary styling as well as Vintage. This style of tub is more appropriate in a bath with ample
space to allow it to "show off" and be a centerpiece.
To further customize and provide a particularly individual look, many suppliers offer custom
painting for the exterior. This can be a solid color of your choice, or even a design if you wish.
Faucet drillings are another important feature and determine both the placement and style of
faucet you select. Faucets can be installed inside, on the rim, wall-mounted or free-standing on the floor,
depending on the drilling you select, and the faucet system. This is another unique feature for this bathtub, as
well as the ever-popular clawfoot.
