Master Bath Renovation

Our master bath renovation started back in early December and like most jobs, it didn't finish until close to the end of January. Either way, it turned out pretty damn close to planned.  

We ended up keeping our previous (and a bit dated) soaking tub mostly to save money.  Everything else was demo'd, even the beadboard wainscoting.  We have a vaulted ceiling so painting it ourselves would have been nearly impossible, without renting scaffolding.  And since the back wall was faux finished with navy blue paint, we didn't really want to deal with getting the coverage right, so we called in a pro to paint this room. Money well spent, he did a fantastic job.

Our vanity and mirror were a combination item we got from Home Depot on sale.  I found the same vanity on Wayfair (for way more) without the mirror, here.  We used Mohawk porcelain tile in Whiskey Oak for the floor and we love the wood look, with tile practically.  We replaced shower and tub surround with H-Line 3x6 subway style ceramic tile with a gray grout for contrast.  (I think it's Silverado, but I'd have to double check!)  We had the shower glass custom fit and while we loved our frameless glass doors in our last house's master bath, we couldn't stomach the cost.  We just went with brushed nickel framed glass, easy and fairly cheap all things considered. 

We finished it off with a light fixture is from Shades of Light, bamboo roman blind, and behind the door towel hooks.  I still want to add in some art and decorative pieces, basket or ladder for clean towels, but it's functional and no longer an eye sore.






I couldn't find a before, but this was before the room was painted.  Such a difference!

  2. I looks great! I love the simplicity of the subway tile. And the soaker tub goes great with the remodel. Definitely the right call to not replace it.

  8. Oh my gosh I just love it! Great colors and finishings. I wish I could talk Thomas into a wood tile floor but I'm okay with the marble look he wants. Now to find the right one!
