@Custom Home, now you make me worry about my bathroom! I had it tiled in limestone years ago and did not think (nor did my builder think) about the added weight. No problem with that so far, but...jeeze.

I had a free standing claw foot tub in my former home. There was ample space behind it to get in there with a broom or mop. We had a hand shower and you can rinse it clean in 2 minutes. When installed with practicality in mind, it is a nicer tub than the kind we find in most hotels and standard American homes. I miss it and will do something free standing when I remodel the master bath at our current home.

If you have aches from too much overdoing of your favorite athletics, nothing is better than a deep, hot soaking tub!
(We own a horse farm. Lots of reasons to want to bathe.)
