Consider a Clawfoot tub in Your Master Bathroom Remodel
Hi guys! We are right in the middle of our 1891 master bedroom and bathroom remodel. It’s been so much work demoing the room and getting it ready to be updated but I am so excited about the space we are building. One thing I knew when we bought our 1891 home was that it needed a clawfoot tub! I’ve been researching materials for our remodel and I thought I would share some of my favorite inspiring bathroom with clawfoot tubs!
