Sourcing designs from around the world, Barclay Products has a solid reputation in the world of home renovation. It’s chosen by pros and homeowners alike who are searching for something unique for their bathrooms or kitchens.
Do they have things that are the right fit for your home? In my Barclay Products review, I’ll help you figure that out. Ahead, I’ll look into the A-Z’s of the brand, including their best-sellers, feedback, FAQ, and more.
Overview of Barclay Products
Today, you may know Barclay as the faucets and sink with the little swan logo, but back in 1933, the brand was actually called Sterline Showers Company. Offering innovative clawfoot tubs that also allowed users to take showers, it made a name for itself as a brand with a vision.
In 1974, Sterline Showers was taken over by Leslie Raffel and in 1982, it officially became Barclay Products Limited. Located in Illinois, with Leslie’s vision, the brand began offering designer products from around the globe.
Coming up in my Barclay Products review, I’ll give you a peek into the type of designs this brand is so loved. But first, let’s kick things off with some company highlights:
- Wide range of bath & kitchen sinks and faucets
- 500 styles of bathtubs
- Sell custom-painted tubs
- Limited one-year guarantee
- Classic & international design
- Well-made products & high-quality materials
Barclay Tubs Review
Tubs are, perhaps, what this brand is best known for. Its stock of bateau, clawfoot, and cast iron designs is the largest in its collection, and you’ll have tons of options to pick from in each category. To give you an idea of what Barclay offers, just ahead, I’ll tell you all about its best-sellers.
Barclay Addison 48″ Cast Iron Roll Top Tub Review
When you think of classic tubs, the Addison 48” Cast Iron Roll Top Tub is what comes to mind. It’s perfect for small or guest bathrooms and adds a retro touch.
It can hold up to 29 gallons and has a pre-drilled overflow to avoid leaks and spills. Made from cast iron coated with white enamel, ball and claw feet add a special touch to your choice of silver, bronze, gold, or pewter finishes.
The tub has an MSRP of $2,332 or $2,311 depending on the finish you choose.
Barclay Raynor 66″ Cast Iron Bateau Tub Review
The Raynor 66” Cast Iron Bateau Tub is long and lovely, with an elegant look that calls for a large window overlooking the ocean. With a bateau design, it’s curved from top to bottom, sitting flush with the floor for maximum stability.
It’s certainly a bath to enjoy long soaks in, as it’s made from cast iron coated with white porcelain enamel. While it’s longer than other tubs at 66”, it’s a bit slimmer too at 28.5”. Don’t underestimate it though, as it can hold 46 gallons.
You’ll need to set up a faucet over the top for this one, but it’s already been pre-drilled to prevent overflow. With an MSRP of $7,999, you can get your tub custom painted for a little extra.
Barclay Products Columbia 60″ Cast Iron Double Roll Top Review
The Colombia 60” Cast Iron Double Roll Top tub is the largest design in my Barclay Products review. 60” long by 30.125” wide, this tub can hold 60 gallons of water.
This particular tub has a classic, old-world design. It’s simple but still manages to make an impression in your master bathroom. Thanks to a double roll top design, there’s lots of space for bubble baths.
Made from cast iron coated with white enamel and a white epoxy exterior, you’ll delight in regal features like jeweled feet and a pre-drilled overflow. Pick from designs with 7” centers or no faucet holes for a $2,761 MSRP.
Barclay Sinks Review
Barclay makes freestanding and basin sinks for large and small bathrooms. With design inspiration from all over the world, you’ll have your pick of a wide range of naturally-inspired textures and classic porcelain sinks.
In this section of my Barclay products review, I’ll introduce you to the brand’s best-sellers.
Barclay Versailles 36″ Console Review
A true centerpiece for your bathroom, the Versailles 36” Console has the look of a sink you might find in a ritzy guest house.
With shapely legs and a rectangular top, there’s plenty of room for soap dishes and toothbrush holders. I suggest placing a large gold-rimmed mirror above it to finish off that grand look.
Measuring 35.5” x 22.625” x 32.125”, the console is made with a fire clay construction for durability with an 8” pre-drilled hole for your faucet. For an MSRP of $2,685, all hardware is included when you order.
Barclay Marina Above Counter Basin Review
The Marina Above Counter Basin is another breathtaking design from Barclay Products. The thick basin has a hand-sculpted feel, pairing well with a free-flowing faucet to keep the natural look. The measurements are as follows:
- Basin Diameter: 17.5”
- Basin Depth: 7.5”
- Flange Depth: 2.5” x 2”
There is no pre-drilled overflow for aesthetic reasons, so you’ll need to be wary when you choose a stopper for this basin. Get it for an MSRP of $352.
Barclay Fango Round 16″ Ceramic Basin Review
The Fango Round 16” Ceramic Basin is one of Barclay Products’ more exotic designs. From the Argentinian company Fango Bachas, each of these basins is handcrafted, hand-painted, and oven-baked.
There are no faucet holes or overflow, so you’ll need to select a faucet that extends from the wall. Measuring 15.75” in diameter and 4.125” in depth, it comes in 9 different color options, some of which feature playful patterns like rainbows and stripes.
The ceramic basin has an MSRP between $329-447 depending on which finish you select. You’ll have to pay a little more for the more complex ones.
Who Is Barclay Products For?

Barclay Products Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
You probably came to my Barclay Products review to get the full scoop on the brand which, of course, means real feedback about their products. If so, you’re in luck because I’ve dedicated an entire section to it here.
My first stop for feedback was Wayfair. Here are a few of my featured best-sellers to give you an idea of how shoppers enjoy the products.
- Marina Above Counter Basin: 5/5 stars, 4 reviews
- Versailles Bathroom Sink: 4.8/5 stars, 10 reviews
- Fango Ceramic Circular Vessel Bathroom Sink: 4.5/5 stars, 29 reviews
Looking into the comments section for the Fango Ceramic Circular Vessel Bathroom Sink, it appears that shoppers appreciate that it’s small but not too small and looks beautiful. One Barclay Products review read: “This is a beautiful piece of art, perfect for our vessel sink. The glaze is lovely on this.”
This kind of comment was common on Wayfair, but how about elsewhere? I headed over to Home Depot to see if the ratings held true there. They did, though there were far fewer reviews to look through, so I turned to another best-selling product.
For example, the Summit 500 20 in. Pedestal Combo Bathroom Sink was rated 4.8/5 stars by 10 customers.
The first thing I noticed was that the prices on Home Depot were a little more expensive than they were on Wayfair, so that may be why there are so many more reviews on the first website.
After reading the comments, I saw that the kind of feedback was the same, as 100% of shoppers said they would recommend this sink to a friend.
One Barclay Products review read: “This pedestal sink is beautiful. It is slimmer (front to back) and gives our small bathroom a little more room. It is more rectangular than the usual pedestal sinks so it is a bit more distinctive.”
Demonstrating the superior design that Barclay employs, choosing one of their sinks may be more practical for your bathroom while still letting you enjoy the unique look the brand is known for.
The last Barclay Products review comes from Amazon and is for the Barclay Bali Pedestal Sink. Rated 4.3/5 stars by 13 shoppers, 85% of folks gave it either a 4 or 5-star score.
In the comments section, I saw mentions of the sink being very sturdy and attractive. One read: “Beautiful well-made pedestal sink. Wonderful design for my powder room. Petite but tall, perfect. Just bought a second one for my other powder room.”
No matter where I looked, I didn’t find much in the way of negative feedback. The most common issue seemed to be about products being too short or not working in a space, and this is in not really Barclay’s fault. The majority of folks loved what they got from this brand.
Is Barclay Products Legit?
One of the reasons I wrote this Barclay Products review was to give you peace of mind when shopping. To do that, it’s important to suss out any red flags, which naturally means clicking over to their profile on the Better Business Bureau.
Barclay Products has a B- score on the BBB and just one complaint made in the last three years. Not a bad score considering the breadth of this company. Considering negative feedback too, there wasn’t anything that stood out as unusual. Barclay checks out.
Is Barclay Products Worth It?
The answer to this question is a simple yes. According to customers, Barclay Products are well-made, work, and look great, and that’s all you can really ask for in a sink, tub, or faucet.
