Soaking in the Trend: Statement Tubs with Dreamy Views

Soaking tubs with nature views are putting the “rest” back in restroom.

When we talk about making a bold statement in bathroom design trends, we usually mention striking marble, walls of wallpaper or  colorful hand-painted tile. Those trends are all still going strong, but lately, bathroom designers and homeowners are making a statement with an old bathroom staple: the bathtub. Oversized, standalone tubs are gaining traction as statement pieces that – when coupled with expansive windows that let in morning light and soothing nature views – are equal parts fun and functional.

On the path to relaxation in a busy world, look no further than your favorite scented bubbles and these blissed-out bathrooms that have become part spa and part sanctuary thanks to larger-than-life tubs with equally impressive views.

This spa-like bathroom features side-by-side Marvin double hung windows flanked by sheer curtains, making a soak in this tub worth savoring.





In this earthy bathroom, a wall-sized Marvin direct glaze window paired with transoms over the vanity create a light-soaked feel you can appreciate from the tub (and just about everywhere else, too).




The master bathroom in designer Emily Henderson’s Mountain House project was the perfect opportunity to add a bay of Marvin windows around the “soaking tub her heart deeply desired.” The result is an immersive winter wonderland perfectly enjoyed from the depths of a hot bath.




Crisp white walls in this neutral bathroom create the perfect backdrop for uniquely placed Marvin double hung windows that complement a skylight overhead. We’re not sure what’s a prettier focal point from this tub, the statement art or the statement view.




This bathroom proves that soaking tubs can be modern, too – with a sleek shape and black-framed Marvin casement windows to frame the view. Taking relaxation to the next level, a set of Marvin patio doors invites the homeowners to follow a warm soak with a lounge on the adjacent patio.




With beautiful marble and an antique soaking tub, this bathroom’s Marvin double hung windows perfectly complement the classic feel. Grab a novel and get transported back in time.




If you’ve got a bathroom renovation coming up, consider the power of porcelain and the calming effect of an outdoor view to complete your soaking sanctuary.
