Since this bathroom has a lot of floor space, it's possible to position this clawfoot tub
diagonally for a more decadent, luxurious feeling (why scrunch your tub into a corner when you can spread out?). One thing to note about positioning the tub in the center of the room is that the drain and supply pipes must come up through the floor and will be quite obvious. Wisely, the photographer has taken this photo from an angle where these are not visible.
Tip: What Makes This a Great Small Bathroom Idea?
What really gives this bathroom a sense of timelessness is its use of wainscot
. Wainscotting is an easy DIY install, and can help protect walls from moisture when properly sealed and painted.
