I know, I know, we did the master bathroom in April & May, so why am I just now showing you the finished product? Well, I have many excuses (football season, traveling, summer, renovation exhaustion, holidays, etc), but the real reason boils down to flowers. Yes, flowers. Don’t ask.
So file this in the better late than never category, because here is the Master Bathroom Reveal! I love this room so much! It’s not totally done, as there are a few little things here and there that I want to do, like install crown molding, switch out the light fixture in the water closet, and add some functional organizational tools to the cabinets, but its done for now. I’ve been enjoying it since it was finished, and I can’t believe its taken me this long to do the reveal post. I apologize.
Here is what the bathroom looked like before:
Here is what it looks like now:
We really need to do something about that Water Closet light. The lighting in there is horrendous. I may add that to this weekend’s to-do list. It was really hard to get a good pic of the shelves together. Sorry about that! That closet is tiny!
It’s so light and airy, I just love it. It is the best room in the house, and I can’t wait for the rest of the house to catch up to the Master Bathroom.
I have so many favorite parts! I love the bubble bath pictures of my babies, taken when they were 2 years old. So simple and easy for bathroom art. I love that all of the fixtures have a square aspect to them, except for the chandelier. I love the bath tub. That thing is awesome & so deep! It’s wonderful to soak in. I love the marble all the way to the window. It makes a great place to store bath goodies. I love the seat & the cubbies in the shower. I love the flat toilet tank lid so things don’t slide off. I just love all of the details.
Decorating the finished room is my favorite part. It’s still a work in progress, but pretty much done. The x-bench is from Target. I repainted the legs and recovered the top with fabric from fabric.com. I also made the roman shade out of the same fabric. I found the trays, jars, stool, floor mats, toilet tank basket, bath accessories, and cake stand at HomeGoods. The vanity mirror (the BEST makeup mirror ever) is the Mirror Image Minimalist Rectangular Vanity Mirror from Amazon. The baskets in the water closet hold some of my personal care stockpile, and they are from West Elm, as is the glass vase on the windowsill. The frames with the kid’s bubble bath pictures are RIBBA frames from IKEA. The chandelier is from Z Gallerie. I’m still looking for a few items, like pictures for the Water Closet and a tissue holder. Cabinetry Hardware are Emtek’s Geometric 3″ handle (discontinued) and 1.25″ knob from Build.com. Check out this post for paint colors, fixtures, and other construction choices in the bathroom.
I reused some 2″ wood plantation blinds for the large window. It is the same width as one in the living room, where I had removed the blinds.
I’m pretty happy with the choices that we made. If I had to do it again, with the same budget, I’d probably switch out the handheld shower head in the shower for some body jets, simply because we don’t use the handheld as much as I thought we would. The handheld in the bathtub gets a ton of use when washing hair or cleaning the tub. If I had extra cash, I would have replace the cabinets, but that wasn’t in the budget at the time.
In addition to the little things above that I want to do in this room, I also want to remove that pesky oval window, have it drywalled, and instead install 3 1′ x 2′ windows across the top of that wall to let in a ton of light while maintaining privacy. I ended up putting some cling frost on that window for privacy, but it makes it really hard to get to the towel rack. Once that window is gone, we can move the towel rack to a more convenient spot for everyone.
We replaced the old shower light with one of these new LED all in one recessed lights that are safe for use in wet areas. This is also the type of light I want to put in the Water Closet.
We ended up going slightly over budget on this project, but that is mostly because the room is so big. I think it was worth it, though. We saved a ton of money by doing the demo, painting, and painting the cabinets ourselves. It took about 5 weeks start to finish, which I think is a long time for a bathroom, but we had some hiccups along the way, like termites, scheduling conflicts, tiles the wrong color, and more.
But its done now, and we can enjoy it!
Here’s the to-do list for this room:
