Bold in Black

Here's a chic twist for a clawfoot tub: Paint the exterior black. In this bathroom, hardwood floors and dove gray cabinetry keep the look sharp.

Crisp White

With crisp white walls, tons of natural light and ultra-elegant finishes, this master bathroom feels like a bright, breezy getaway. A gorgeous all-white clawfoot tub takes advantage of the windows and provides a relaxing escape.

Pampering Perfection

This may just be the best setting for a bath ever. Chandelier, clawfoot tub, enormous wall of windows...it's pampering perfection.

Refinished & Refined

This master bathroom seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper features an original clawfoot tub that was refinished in all-white. The color contrast against the shiplapped back wall, provides a nice variation that makes this space really stand out.

Black Beauty

A black-painted clawfoot tub fits with the character of this historic New York farmhouse, but the sleek black-on-white design of the space is characteristic of its modern renovation. In this updated bathroom, white walls mix with black octagonal tile floors and an unexpected animal hide rug to create an eclectic space with loads of style.

Gorgeous in Gold

Jonathan Scott of HGTV's Property Brothers transformed this space into a dreamy bathroom, complete with a gold-leafed tub, chandelier and punchy pink wallpaper.

Vintage Black and White

This elegant black and white bathroom satisfies the design wishes of kids and adults alike. The modern design of the space is sleek and elegant, while the details in the space, such as the silver fixtures and exposed piping, add a little edge to the room. The vintage clawfoot bathtub softens the edges and make a cool addition to this kids' bathroom.

Traditional Elegance

Sometimes luxury simply means a sense of intimacy in a room. Placing this footed bath right in the middle of the his-and-hers vanities gives the room an interesting, romantic layout. The cream and neutral color scheme works perfectly for the romantic vibe featuring marble flooring, a floral Roman shade and a half tile wall.

Striking Yellow

What could be more fun than a citron yellow clawfoot tub! The designer painted the tub's legs a high lacquer black for an extra dose of drama.

Pretty Pops of Gold

The homeowner requested a clawfoot tub to provide an accent piece, in contrast to the minimal glass-enclosed shower.

Lovely Lavender

The striking lavender clawfoot tub provides the perfect accent to the lit purple wall color in this bathroom and is a stunning focal point.

Fabulous Focal Point

This side of the master bathroom is full of visual interest thanks to patterned shades, a clawfoot tub, textured baskets and a geometric side table. With natural light streaming in through the windows, the owners will have no trouble finding peace and serenity over here.

Classic in All-White

Stark white walls don't distract from bold patterns, like the vibrant starburst design of this guest bathroom's tile floor. A vintage clawfoot tub tucks cozily into the niche ready to soak worries away.

Bathtub With a View

The texturally painted suspended ceiling highlights the clawfoot tub in this master bathroom as the focal point. The floor to ceiling windows bring the outdoors in.

Center of Attention

The center of this bathroom features an elegant white clawfoot bathtub creating a timeless focal point.

Brilliant in Blue

As seen on Home Town, Ben and Erin Napier decided to move the shower location and make room for an antique claw foot bathtub with a larger frosted window to brighten the space. The teal painted exterior of this clawfoot tub is a wonderful accent to the tiled accent wall.

Refined Sophistication

A vintage clawfoot tub takes center stage in this clean, crisp bathroom. A beautiful chandelier lends elegance to the space, and trendy accessories add chic style.

Star of the Show

This bright master bathroom features white subway tile walls, marble tiled floors and a black and white clawfoot tub that is the focal point of the space. A gold star-shaped pendant light dangles above the bathtub, adding a finishing touch to the chic design.

Cozy Clawfoot

This cozy alcove perfectly fits a handsome clawfoot tub (just add bubbles!) that is ready for relaxation.

Mixing Modern & Vintage

This bathroom features a vintage clawfoot tub that is paired with punchy purple walls and a refined chandelier hanging above.
