New Acrylic Clawfoot Bathtubs

66 inch Acrylic Clawfoot Bathtub
You probably don't get as excited about bathtubs as we do, at Vintage Tub and Bath. However, if you plan to remodel your bathroom in the future and like the look of clawfoot bathtubs, you will be able to relate to our excitement.

71 inch Acrylic Pedestal Bathtub
We now exclusively offer a premium line of acrylic bathtubs from our Randolph Morris collection.

60 inch Acrylic Clawfoot Tub
So why should this excite you? Since these acrylic clawfoot tubs are built from high quality, lightweight materials, they do not weigh as much as traditional cast-iron bathtubs. The new bathtubs are much lighter, resulting in a less stressful transportation and installation process. Another reason to become enthusiastic about these tubs is that they are less expensive than other acrylic clawfoot tubs.

Now you can fulfill your clawfoot desire while saving money and time!

Get "Greener" with Paint, not color

Looking to make your house greener without painting it green?

Our customers are asking for ways to “Go Green” in the bathroom and kitchen without looking too modern. I've found a variety of tips to benefit the serious renovators as well as the quick-fixers, from easily implemented and inexpensive energy savers to kitchen altering renovations. Best part, saving energy saves money too. Go green to save green.

The first of my many tips found deals with paint, because, no matter what kind of remodel, renovation or simple update you're doing, it’s inevitable you'll be repainting and resealing walls and floors.

How can adding more chemicals to your walls improve the environment? Even after regular paint is dry, it can off-gas for up to 3.5 years. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in most paints are a major source of indoor air pollution. Look for the Green Seal on paint products to ensure only the lowest VOC paints are used in your home. Low VOC paint uses a water base instead of petroleum-based oil solvents.

AFM Safecoat's is a leader in the green-building industry. They offer a full line of paints in every finish; Matte, Eggshell, All Purpose Exterior Satin, Cabinet & Trim Enamel, and Semi-gloss. Just like regular paint, these are all tintable to virtually any color.

Stains and Seals- OSMO and Velvit Oil stains are good for both wood and concrete, starting as low as $25 a gallon

Not planning on repainting? Stop the off-gas from the current paint with Finishes & Off-Gas Stoppers.

Going "Green" looks better than you think. You'll be surprised of the many other ways to be eco-friendly during your upcoming and even already started projects.

3D Bathrooom Planning Tools

This will be my first contribution to the Daily Tubber and I can't be more excited about it. Today the hot topic has been tips on remodeling. I have looked around and found some very interesting tools to help with a bathroom remodeling project.

The most interesting tool I have found is the
tool which allows you to take some pre-made bathrooms from the Bathroom Design Center at Then adjust them to your liking. I found it to be very useful to match up some colors for your bathroom. It helps most matching up colors for your faucets and counter tops or your sinks and bathtubs. The Design Center at HGTV is centered around Kohler products. The picture to the right is the bathroom I designed today.

Some downsides to the Design Center is the choppy graphics of all the fixtures, you can't seem to make out all the details in the products that well. Also sometimes it is difficult for it to run on your computer properly. We had some difficulties on computers here for it to work consistently. You can't choose products other than Kohler so if you aren't a fan of Kohler then you won't be to pleased with this tool. Who doesn't love Kohler though. I couldn't change the tub faucet on the tub either which bummed me out a little but I'm over it.

Kohler also offeres a design tool on their website. Kohler's program goes into a little more depth than Kohler allows you to customize your room size, and put in whatever Kohler products they have on their website into your bathroom. I did not have time to play around with this tool but it appeared to be really cool and useful.

Here is another shot of my bathroom design with the listings of the products I used in my design.

1. Toilet - Kathryn Elongated Toilet
2. Sinks - Memoirs Self-Rimming Basin
3. Faucets - Memoirs Widespread Sink Faucet
4. Tub - Portrait 6' Whirlpool
5. Towel Bar - Revival 24" Towel Bar
6. Toilet Tissue Holder - Revival Toilet Tissue Holder
