We started demoing our master bathroom in December and we are still working on completely this space. It is so close to being completed! I thought I would share our progress here today. I had to clear away remodeling chaos to take the photos below, so know that there are a lot of boxes, tools, garbage, and all the other stuff that goes along with a remodel tucked away while I took these photos.
The tile was the first thing we tackled in this space. My style right is modern farmhouse and I love pairing new and old, modern and vintage, clean lines and distressed pieces. I decided to go with all white tile. I chose subway tile for the walls, small hex tiles for the floor, and penny tile for the backsplash. Finishing the tile was a bit of a fiasco but our tile guy finally completed it.
The countertops are my favorite. We found a company that specializes in ordering finished pieces of quarts countertop and then cutting them down to the size needed. We chose to go with the Calacatta design with those thick strips of grey moving throughout the countertop. I love it and we actually decided to use this countertop in our kitchen, laundry, and every bathroom in our home.
We chose to do shiplap on the wall behind the mirror and the half shower wall. We knew we would have to repair or add sheetrock to these areas, so instead Steve installed the shiplap and I love it! Gorgeous in the space.
The door we ordered from Home Depot and it is beautiful. We are so happy that we decided to move the toilet into its own separate room. It shrunk our closet down a bit, but you really can’t tell. I love master bathrooms where the toilet has its own separate room.
The sinks and faucets are beautiful but I have to say that I would definitely not recommend the sinks. They are made of stone, are a specialty item, and are beautiful, but they are such poor quality. Pieces of the sink have crumbled away with very little wear and tear. They also have a paint finish on them that chips and peels away easily. Our kitchen sink is this same type of sink and the finish peeled off after we put painters tape on it. It was so crazy! We have talked to the manufacturer several times and all they offered to do for us was send us paint to update and nicks and scratches.
Our bathtub is my favorite. Gorgeous lines, a simple style, and lovely to bathe in. Its the bathtub dreams are made of and something I have wished and hoped for for many years. I’m a bath taker, so this tub gets so much use, and was definitely worth the splurge.
Well that is our bathroom thus far. I’ll report back later with updates on the shower doors, mirrors, blinds, and a few other items that need to be done to finish up the space. We definitely were distracted from working on this spaced as we plug away on the main floor through the spring and summer, but are slowly finishing it up, checking off item by item from our to do list. It has been amazing to use this bathroom. We haven’t had an updated master bathroom in 9 years and I’m throughly enjoying this beautiful room each day.
