Modern clawfoot tubs can be made out of the classic cast iron or with modern materials like fiberglass and acrylic that require less maintenance.

Slipper - Slipper-style clawfoot tubs have one end raised and sloped for a more comfortable lounging position.
Double Slipper - Similar the standard slipper clawfoot tub, the double slipper clawfoot tub has both ends raised and sloped.
Double Ended - These tubs have both ends finished in the rounded style seen on classic roll top clawfoot bathtubs.
