Multi-Faceted Clawfoot Tub Faucet

Clawfoot tub faucets come in many shapes and sizes. They range in price from economy clawfoot tub faucets to full featured thermostatic clawfoot tub faucets. There is a great assortment of finishes, faucet handle options, and tub spouts to choose from. Some clawfoot tub faucets offer a handheld shower while still others are equipped with a shower riser and overhead showerhead.

But wait, there's more! There are clawfoot tub faucets that can be configured to mount inside the tub wall, on a bathroom wall, on the rim of a clawfoot tub, or on freestanding supply lines. In many cases, this versatile little spigot can transform from one configuration to another simply by adding or subtracting parts.

It slices, it dices, it even juliennes. Okay, it doesn't slice, dice, or julienne but believe it or not, it can be used in the kitchen. The Sunrise Specialty gooseneck faucet is offered as both a clawfoot tub faucet and a kitchen sink faucet. In the kitchen, the tall spout provides extra clearance for washing pots and pans. The spout swivels so it can be used with double bowl kitchen sinks. The faucet can be mounted on the countertop in a modern kitchen or wall mounted on a farmhouse sink in a traditional kitchen. Sham Wow! That faucet is resourceful!

There are a few caveats to consider prior to choosing a clawfoot tub faucet for your kitchen sink. Kitchen countertops are typically thicker than the wall or rim of a clawfoot tub. The spouts for clawfoot tub faucets often project further than kitchen faucets and may overshoot the bowl. Although the spout on the Sunrise Specialty gooseneck faucet swivels, most clawfoot tub faucet spouts do not swivel. Clawfoot tub faucets have hand showers. Kitchen sink faucets have hand sprayers. Common clawfoot tub faucet centers are not always so common for kitchen sinks. As with any faucet, check the specifications prior to purchasing a faucet for your project.

While it may not be as revolutionary as a Veg-o-Matic, the clawfoot tub filler is certainly multi-faceted. Visit Shop 4 Classic for help selecting a clawfoot tub faucet for your next project whether it is for the kitchen or the bath.
