When was the last time you heard someone rave enthusiastically about their bathtub?

Obviously, being in the bathroom/bathtub business, we keep our ears close to the ground about what’s happening in our industry. There are several popular trends we’ve been seeing in bathroom design these days. One of them is the inclusion of a stand alone bathtub that serves as the focal point of the bathroom.  Our cast iron/porcelain Pedestal (or Clawfoot) tubs work perfectly in this capacity. Another trend is the move to neutral colors such as white, bone, beige, sand, etc.

One of our delighted customers, Janie, decided to embrace both of these trends when she and her husband remodeled their bathroom.  Naturally conversive and camera-friendly, Janie was happy to share her experience with us.  She invited us into her home to film her standing next to her new pride-and-joy, white Double Slipper Pedestal Tub.

“We were going to start our remodel of our bathroom,” Janie explains, standing next to her Double Slipper bathtub.  Placed at an angle near a corner of the bathroom, the tub is also partially illuminated by a  stained glass window that has silhouettes of flamingos and a palm tree in the center. Comprised mostly of blue, turquoise and azure glass, the window subtly illuminates the bathtub. To the right of the tub is Jamie’s new wood cabinets, stained in a dark veneer, topped with a beige-colored countertop that complements the white Double Slipper.  The beige walls and light floor tiles also help give the bathroom an open, spacious ambiance.  Interestingly, the bathroom sports a multi-circular, almost Zen-like wrought iron chandelier, its dark metallic color also complements the dark wood of the cabinetry and accents of the floor tile.

Janie spent some time investigating different decorating trends before deciding on the look she wanted to create in her bathroom. “I did some research with some magazines, home TV shows and things like that a lot of looking at different bathtubs, cabinetry, tiles, countertops, sinks, and all that kind of stuff, just to see what I really wanted to do.”

Looking at the video, you can see Janie has a natural aesthetic sense of design and color. Notice her outfit. Dark coral top. White pants.  Now look closely as the camera pans around the bathroom.  Dark coral towels. White bathtub. Dark coral glassware. White door and window frames. 

After considering several different types of bathtubs, Janie eventually decided to go with a Pedestal tub. This cast iron/porcelain tub design continues to gain popularity as homeowners look for stand alone-type tubs.  “That’s when I went online and found Tub King. So I thought, ‘Well, let me just look at this little video.’ This guy, Alan Knight, who is the president of the company, was on the video.  And he seemed so genuine, down-to-earth just your regular sort of guy. So I thought, ‘Hmmm, this looks good.’”

Janie, impressed with Tub King’s extensive inventory of bathtubs and accessories, called to consult with Alan and Kerry Knight, the owners of Tub King. After talking with them, she chose a Double Slipper tub with center-mounted, chrome  handheld shower wand and faucet handles.

Janie says she couldn’t be happier with her purchase. “Everything about my experience with Tub King has just been very easy and natural. They came through with everything that they said they would do.” This is one of the many reasons why Tub King has been entered into the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce’s Business Hall of Fame.    

“As far as helping me get the fixtures, they were especially helpful because I needed some different handles on the bathtub to help match the handles on the new sink [we’d installed] because I’d already done a little of this and little of that in terms of remodeling the bathroom.  So they helped with that.  Alan helped me find them.”

However, there was a problem with one of the faucet handles, Janie discovered. “There was a handle that didn’t work. So I called back in and Gladys was very helpful. She was just, like, ‘Oh, let me just go look. I’ll see if we have that.’ She called back and said, “We’ve got it. So they swapped it out, and there you go. I’ve got it all right here.”

Janie is absolutely delighted with her Double Slipper Pedestal bathtub. “I love my Tub King tub.”
