Oh man you guys, this bathroom. Where do I start?! As horrible as it looked when we first walked through the house, it actually had a fair amount of potential.
Yes, those light fixtures were horrendous, and don’t even get me started on the mismatched sinks. But, the bathroom DID have a TON of vanity space, and actually a decent amount of square footage to work with. But because the original finishes and the layout left something to be desired, when we started the remodel, we basically ripped the whole bathroom apart and took everything down to the studs.
We replaced the flooring with a ceramic tile from the Tile Shop, which had a really soft almost wood mixed with stone texture to it, and said adios to those dingy cabinets. For the countertops, you KNOW I love marble, so that was definitely a contender, but we opted for quartz instead. We went with a quartz that looked like marble because it’s far less fragile and finicky (and a little more pure white).
New faucets, lights, mirrors and crown went in, and before long, this bathroom was starting to shine.
In the photo above, the previous shower used to be where those shelves are. We thought about making the shower huge and extending it all the way to the wall on the right, but it would have hit the window, and we wanted a little storage in the bathroom. So we kept the shower a few feet off the wall so we could sneak in some floating shelves for towels and all the other bath goodies.
We chose an elongated subway tile for the shower walls and a marble for the shower floors and recessed niche. I love this little trick of repeating the shower floor on the back of the niche, because while this little pop is subtle, it breaks up the white tile and adds a unique design element to the shower.
Aaaah, can you believe it?! I’m seriously so in love with how this master bath turned out I could flip through these photos all day. Comment below and let me know your favorite part of this room!
