Has your clawfoot bathtub seen better days? Or maybe it is just not coordinating well with the design of the bathroom. If either of these factors is the case, you might want to consider upgrading your bathroom by applying a fresh coat of paint to the tub. Even if your bathtub is in great condition, revamping it with a makeover can be just the thing your bathroom needs to give it some style. So if you are looking for some ideas for painting a clawfoot bathtub, we got you covered.
Color Coordinate with the Interior
If you want your clawfoot bathtub to be the standout feature in the bathroom but yet harmonize with the rest of the interior, you can consider coordinating with the other colors you have used throughout the bathroom. For instance, you will want to let the color palette of the powder room or even the wallpaper inspire your choice of color.
In a powder room that uses a lot of playful colors like pink, yellow, and even blue, you can apply a bold hue to the clawfoot tub. You can further complement the look of a bold-hued bathtub by adding a few other playful colors to the bathroom so that it fits perfectly with the space.
Copper or Brass Finishes
You cannot go wrong with copper or brass colors. These hues also pair wonderfully with a traditionally designed bathroom or one that embraces a transitional style. Such a color is also great for a vintage-inspired look. When using metallic colors on the exterior of the bathtub, you will have to apply multiple coats for the color to be really vibrant. Add a sealant over the paint if you want a glossy look.
The Power of Green
From earthy greens to light greens to dark greens, this a popular color choice in many powder rooms. So why not paint your clawfoot bathtub one of the many variations of green? Dark shades of green look great against a dark patterned tile. Earthy greens fit great in a neutral palette bathroom without standing out too much, while a bold, light green makes your tub the standout feature in the space.
