With Valentine’s Day approaching, this post is dedicated to adding a little romance to your décor by including a bathtub in your bedroom. This popular design trend is common in honeymoon suites, romantic vacation destinations, and even homes. With this tub trend, the next time you want to lounge in a warm bath, you can do it in the comfort of your bedroom – a communal space for you and your sweetheart. Here are ten stunning bedrooms with baths ranging from modern to traditional designs. These are sure to get you in the mood for Valentines Day.
A Tub with a View
Nothing says luxury and romance like a bath with a scenic view – it’s like a hot tub from the comfort of your bedroom! If you live in the mountains or the gorgeous countryside and privacy is not a concern, put your bath by the window! Nothing will be more relaxing than soaking in paradise. You can even style your tub with a wooden plank across the top to hold your wine glass, magazine, or book. If your tub is not suited for that, put a teak stool or an end table by the tub for your towel and goodies. [from Edwin Pepper Interiors via Houzz]

In this home, the natural floor-to-ceiling stone tiles add to the rustic modern feel of the space. The pink flowers in the corner are a romantic staging element perfect for Valentine’s Day.
