                      How To Design Your Copper Bath Tub

Option #1  Choose The Patina Finish (Mix & Match)

Choose One Patina Finish For The Interior And One Patina Finish For
The Exterior.  Each Patina Finish Is Hand Created By Adding Multiple
Patinas Together.  The Ending Result Is Always Gorgeous, But No
Two Patinas Are Ever Alike.  Depending Upon The Light Surrounding
The Patina Finish, The Patina Will Lighten Or Darken Naturally.

Keep In Mind When Deciding Your Patina Finish, How Your Patina Will Change With The Light Around It.

There Is No Doubt That Copper Is Beautiful. Bath Tubs And More Offers 16 Patina Finishes That You Can Mix & Match To Create Amazingly, Gorgeous Copper Products.

With Darker Patinas, The Patina Will Turn Reddish In Bright Lights. There Is No Getting Away From That Fact. With The Lighter Patinas (Golden Bronze, New Penny, And Old Penny) They Will All Resemble Each Other In Certain Lighting.  That Is Because To Create Each Patina Finish, Multiple Patinas Are Blended Together.

Photograph To The Left:  "A" Old Penny Outdoor
Light *  "C" Indoor Overhead Light. "B" Golden Bronze Outdoor Bright Light * "D" Indoor Overhead Light.

You Can See From The Pictures, How Wide A Variation There Is In Patina Shading With The Lighter Patina Finishes.  For People Who Love Their Color Scheme To "Match Perfectly" The Lighter Patinas May Cause Some Disappointment. When Decorating With The Lighter Patinas, Incorporate New Penny, Old Penny And Golden Bronze In To Your Color Scheme For Happy, Positive Results.

When Building Multiple Copper Products, It's Best To Build Those Products With The Same Manufacture. The Reason Being, Each Manufacture Creates Their Own Patina Finishes From Scratch. One Manufacture's Coffee Patina May Not Match Another Manufacture's Coffee Patina.  At Bath Tubs And More, We Keep All Images Of Completed Products On File.  That Way If You Come Back A Year Later And Order An Additional Copper Product, We Have A Record Of Your Patina Finish On File. That Photo Helps Us Duplicate The Original Patina Finish, As Close As Humanely Possible.


We Offer One Patina Change At No Charge. Our Guarantee You'll Love Your Copper Bath Tub.

Option #2  Choose The Surface Texture Finish

             
     Hand Hammered                        Smooth Hand Hammered            Old World Smooth
     Conventional Imprint                  Light Texture Imprint                  Not A Flat Smooth Surface

Hand Hammered Is The Typical Surface Texture For Most Products.  A Smooth Hand Hammered Finish (Our Most Popular Texture) Is A Hand Hammered Surface That Has Been Rolled, So There Is A Light Surface Imprint, Resulting In The Hand Hammered Finish Being Smoother To The Touch.  Old World Smooth Is A Unique And More Difficult Surface Texture To Apply.  The Slight Rolled Appearance To The Smooth Surface Creates An Artistic, Old World Look To The Bath Tub. (OWS Is NOT The Shinny Rolled Copper Seen On Aftermarket Bath Tubs)No Matter What Surface Texture You Choose, Our Copper Bath Tubs Always Turn Out Stunningly Beautiful.  Would You Like Close Up Images Of Our Surface Textures? 800-989-5166.




    

Option #3
  Choose The Size Of Your Copper Bath Tub.


Copper Bath Tubs Listed Are Standard Sizes. Have An Exceptionally Small Area For Your Bath Tub, Or Would Like To Build A Tub Larger Then 72" Long?  We Build To Your Specifications. Call Us For Pricing For An Odd Size Copper Bath Tub.

Did You Know We Can Pull The Side And End Walls Out To Create More Length And Width For The Bathing Well?  To Determine The Length And Width That Will Accommodates Your Body Style Best, Please Do The Following.  Sit On The Floor With Your Legs Straight Out In Front Of You. Measure From The Back Of Your Hips To Your Heels (Toes Up).  For The Width, Measure The Widest Part Of Your Hips. We Will Use These Measurements To Help You Choose The Perfect Size Tub.

Measuring Your Current Bath Tub Will Give You An Excellent Idea Of The Bathing Well Size That Will Work Best For You.

Bath Tubs And More Is A Custom Copper Store.  Each Product Is Built To The Customer's Specifications. We Provide Line Drawings For Your Approval. You May Make Any Changes You Wish To Your Drawing To Create A Custom Copper Bath Tub That Is Stylish And Comfortable.
You Can Design Your Center Slope To Any  Measurement. 3", 5", 7" Or Custom. 3" Is Basically Straight Across And Is The Least Amount Of Slope That Can Be Added.



 
 
 The 5" Slope Is Chosen Most Often.
 

When Designing Pedestal And Claw Foot Bath Tubs, The Height Of The Side Wall Will Not Only Change The Appearance Of Your Bath Tub, It Also Dictates The Water Depth Of Your Copper Bath Tub.

If You Build A 30" H Bath Tub, The 30" H Is From The Floor To The Top Rim Of The End Lounger.  To Figure Out The True Depth Of The Bathing Well, There Are Several Numbers That Come In To Play.  The Overall Height Of The Bath Tub; The Height Of The Base (Standard Height Is 4"), The Slant Of The Side Wall Slope (Generally 5" Or 7" ) And Whether An Overfill Hole Is Added To The Bath Tub.

As An Example:  30" H (End Lounger)  Minus 5" (Side Slope) = 25" H. Now Deduct The 4" Base = 21" H.  The 21" H Is From The Bathing Well Floor To The Top Of The Center Side Rim. (7" Slope Results In A 19" H Or 19" Water Depth).

Claw Feet Height: Claw Feet #2: 4" H. Claw Feet #1 & #3: 5" H.

If Adding An Overfill Hole, Deduct An Additional 3.5" To Arrive At 17.5" D (21" H) Or 15.5" D (19" H). This Is The Measurement From The Bathing Well Floor To The Center Of The 1.5" D Overfill Hold Drilled On The Side Wall. We Build To Any Height.  To Increase The Water Depth, Choose To Build Your Copper Bath Tub To A 31" H Or More.

The Slope Of The Bath Tub Is Not Just Cosmetic, But Plays An Important Part Of The Overall Depth And Comfort Of The Bath Tub.

Option #9  Choose The Copper Gauge For Your Bath Tub.

Two Copper Gauges Offered: (14) Gauge (Medium) Or (12) Gauge (Thickest).

What Makes Our Copper Bath Tubs So Stunningly Beautiful, Is The Quality (12 Gauge).  Our Copper Bath Tubs Are Designed To Last Several Lifetimes, Without Morphing Or Changing Shape, As Lesser Gauge Copper Bath Tubs Will Eventually Do.  The Difference In Quality Between A 16 Gauge And 12 Gauge Bath Tub, When Sitting Side By Side, Is Quite Evident. Quality Matters.

The Reason Our Designs Look So Amazing On Our Copper Bath Tubs, Is Because Of The Thickness Of The 12 Gauge Copper.  With Thinner Gauge Copper, The Designs Will Not Be As Pronounced As With 12 Gauge.
