Welcome to what used to be the worst room in our home! From Day 1 of seeing our home, we knew we were going to redo the master bathroom. It just took us 2.5 years to finally decide on exactly what we wanted. Plus we had been doing lots of other projects that were more necessary. This was a big project!
Here are some before pictures:
The pink tile - ahh!!! Brass and silver faucets. Handicap bars everywhere. Brass and silver lighting.
This is my little area right outside the bathroom. We went back and forth about what to do with this space but ultimately decided to make the counter, mirror and lighting match the bath and then we will change the flooring of this to be what we use in the bedroom because there isn't a door between this area and the bedroom.
A few progress pictures...
AND the grand finale, which may I add looks a lot better in person!
Kevin's area in the bathroom (they've since put the covers on the electrical outlets and speakers back in. We replaced the lighting, mirror and faucet and installed a new carrara marble countertop. Left the same cabinets. Still need to get chrome knobs.
We painted the it Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. We love that color so much in the baby's room. The trim is SW Creamy High Gloss. Ceiling is ceiling white.
Knobs have been put back on.
My area we decided on the two light fixtures. Replaced the countertop, new sink and faucet. We went with the Delta Linden collection for the faucet for my area and the Delta Foundation collection for Kevin's. Just our individual preference but since they don't sit right next to each other, it was no big deal. New mirror as well.
As you can see, we knocked that half wall down between the tub and shower and it really opened it up! We also moved plumbing from that half wall to the back wall.
The tile guy was super fancy and he studied in Italy. Let's just say, he knew exactly what he was doing. He was excellent.
The herringbone shower floor is my favorite part and I'm glad we splurged on that. I like the little corner notch which you can prop your foot on to shave. When we knocked down the wall, we had them install the shower wall over a bit so it created a shelf for shampoo etc. Details! There is not a window in the shower...it's a reflection.
You can see that we removed the tile on the face of the tub and added wood paneling to update it. We do like the Jacuzzi tub even though only our nieces have taken a bubble bath in there. The flooring are 18x18 tiles. Large tiles for a decently large space. They are so pretty and work perfectly with the 9x14 tiles used in the shower. The floor tiles are honed so they aren't slippery.
We decided for now to keep the window though we do have plans to remove it and put a regular window with plantation shutters to match the rest of the house. That'll probably be a project for the fall. It's a custom size window so it was a long lead item. We just decided to bag it for now and deal with it later. The tub faucet was also replaced and all the grab bars were removed.
Ohhhh it's so nice to have a real bathroom again!
It took almost 4 weeks for this project to be done but it was so worth it! We are thrilled with the final product! Our next big house projects....redoing hardwoods, adding hardwoods in our room and the hallway, maybe a new stove, maybe a pool, maybe a patio, maybe a two car garage.....!!! It's fun making this place our own!
