Flooring options for a clawfoot tub??
Posted by Erin on May 09, 19100 at 13:38:37:
I've recently purchased an antique cast iron clawfoot tub as part of a bathroom remodelling project. Another element of the project is that I plan to update the flooring to either ceramic tile (12"x12"), Pergo or hardwood (listed in order of preference).

Has anyone ever installed a clawfoot tub over any of these surfaces? I'm concerned about the amount of pressure that will focus on the four legs of the tub and what sort of impact it may have on the flooring.

The last thing I want is to install ceramic tile, the tub, etc. And then have a tile crack under one of the feet the first time the tub is used.

Am I being over cautious??

Any input is GREATLY appreciated....

Thanks in advance,
Erin
