10 Luxurious Bathtubs to Pair With a Glass of Wine (and a Good Book)

There are few more satisfying things when coming home from a stressful day than drawing a bubble bath and sinking in with a glass of wine and a good book. And these days, there's no shortage of reasons to be stressed. Even if your bathroom is small and lackluster, it's easy to envision an elegant bathroom with double vanities, fireplaces, and luxurious bathtubs. In smaller spaces, beautiful fixtures and luxe materials can go a long way in making a space feel extra special. If you're planning a renovation or simply want to indulge in beautiful spaces, look no further—these luxurious bathtubs are the respite we all need from the stresses of the world.

Though this bathroom is not the biggest, floating the bathtub in the middle of the space makes it feel grander. The Victorian terrace space already has great bones: extra-high ceilings and French doors that open onto a balcony, but the marble tiles give it extra dimension.
