Choosing the exact right bathtub color may be the key to creating the bathroom of your dreams!
Yet most freestanding tubs are still only available in plain white. Acrylic bathtub colors typically range from bright white to off-white, cream or biscuit to black. Navy blue or dark green bathtubs are occasionally available as well.
However, if you are looking for a truly unique tub color like plum or burnt orange, very few options are available in designer showrooms or retail stores. This limited range of bathtub colors can make it difficult to find a tub that will match a specific bathroom color palette.
Whether you are looking for a specific bathtub color to match a color scheme, or you just need a pop of color to complement your décor, a custom painted bathtub could be the best choice.
Luxury Freestanding Tubs is excited to announce that the Barclay custom paint upgrade is now available for all of Barclay’s acrylic and cast iron tub models.
Choose from popular bathtub colors (100+ bathtub colors available) including the popular Bisque and Black.
By selecting this upgrade prior to purchasing a Barclay acrylic or cast iron tub from our online catalog, Barclay will coat the exterior of any of their cast iron or acrylic tub models with the color of your choice from the Sherwin-Williams color palette of Marine coatings.
