Bringing along with it the majestic character of the highly embellished Victorian era, a clawfoot bathtub adds instant “wow factor” to even the simplest of bathrooms. Turning a basic tub into a decadent showpiece, this elegant clawfoot tub sits front and center, with an chandelier overhead adding to the glamorous atmosphere.

​2. A marble sink

An expansive marble floor might fall out of your price range, but perhaps a marble sink is less of a stretch. Indulge your senses with the smooth, cool, heaviness of richly marbled stone, for a bathroom experience fit for royalty.
