House Reveal: Master Bathroom

Let’s finish this week with a before and after of the master bathroom.

Here it is in all it’s initial pink glory:

We didn’t do that much to reconfigure the space.  We added all new plumbing and leveled the floor from the sunken tub to make one massive shower.  Next we added a lot of marble and black tile, heated floor mats, white Quartz countertops, and chrome accents.  And here’s the final reveal:

Next week, I’ll reveal the master bedroom, guest bathroom, and the most important part of the house – the bar closet :).  Happy Friday!!

I’d love to help you design a space that you love and truly represents you.  Please contact me if you are interested.

Before and (Almost) After: Master Bathroom

The last room I’ll show this week is the master bathroom – as it’s the only room left with a significant noticeable difference.  The other rooms (living room, dining, den, etc.) are definitely different but it’s small differences that make it more comfortable – removing popcorn ceiling, installing hardwood floors, new trim, etc.  So I’ll wait to show those until the new furniture comes (and is ordered :)) before showing the rooms.

Anyway, here is the master bathroom before we moved in…in all its pink and sunken tub glory:

My inspiration for the bathroom was something classic with marble tiles and black accents:

This is where we stand now:

The other side of the bathroom is where we’ve stalled: Master Bath 2But everything is now fixed so we can finish it up:

  • Install light fixtures (already purchased)
  • Install cabinet doors (now that plumbing is fixed)
  • Prime and paint
  • Cabinet handles
  • Install thermostat for heated floors
  • Add storage

This room is clearly the most far along and I actually think we’ll finish this weekend.  I’ve said that for the past few weeks so let’s hope I’m right!!

Have a great weekend!

Master Bathroom – Design Inspiration

Now that most of the big stuff for the master bathroom has come together, I can focus on those small details that will make the room sing.  The design plan includes a marble backdrop (shower and floors), black vanity with white quartz countertop, white/light gray walls, and chrome accents.  I’ve been going back and forth trying to determine if I wanted to use brass/gold accents but after looking at my inspiration photos, I think I want to keep this room classic and will stick with chrome.  (I can have more fun in the other bathrooms. :-))

Here is the “inspiration” photo that started it all:

These are other images that I’ve been loving as well:

I’m trying to push myself to do something different with the design of this house.  Accordingly, this room (along with several others) will be devoid of bold colors.  If I decide later to bring in more color, I can always do it with artwork or accessories.

Now it’s time to focus on finishing touches…lighting, hooks, shelves, artwork, etc.  Onward!
