Cast Iron Tubs

The cast iron tub dates as far back as the 1880s in America, where it was first marketed as a horse trough. However, it’s heat retaining properties made it more popular in the bathroom than in the barnyard! Today, cast iron tubs are made from scrap metal, salvaged from old heating radiators, water pipes, manhole covers and old car parts. My dream home will have at least two claw foot cast iron tubs – one in the bathroom and one outdoors as a planting bed for wildflowers.

    They are certainly photogenic, but if you take showers and live in a cold drafty house, they are not much fun 🙁
