What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to 10 Japanese Soaking Tubs for Bathing Bliss
Step-Up TubsRaised tubs with small stairs leading up to them almost have a throne-like feel. This one has a wooden frame with an insert. Depending on what style surround you decide on, this is generally the more economical way to go. Many mainstream manufacturers make similar tubs.
Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: A Farmhouse Branches Out
Tilt added a bay window to gain more space for a Japanese-style tub in the downstairs bathroom, and to connect to the garden. Artist Morgan carved the door. Wall paint: Tea, Benjamin Moore
