I know I say this for every single post but SERIOUSLY Y’ALL – THIS – is my favorite renovation to date! Our Master Bathroom was one of the MAJOR downfalls to our house when we were thinking of buying it. The master bath had CARPET, and old cast iron tub, huge 80’s vanity lights, and built in medicine cabinets that were falling apart.
We knew that when we moved in we for sure wanted to get rid of the carpet and paint the vanity, but we knew that we wouldn’t have the time or money to tackle a huge renovation until a year or two. We were in the process of pricing items for the renovation and getting quotes one day and I came home and Joshua had started the demo on the master bathroom! I was like “well, looks like we are starting this renovation today! haha” I never thought we would tackle a huge renovation in the middle of my pregnancy, but we did. I was about 5 months pregnant when we started the renovation and secretly I think I timed it perfectly to where I didn’t have to lift a finger during the entire thing…haha!
To start things off, let’s see some before pictures of the Master Bathroom.
I cringe every time I look at the photos!! Eek!! So as you can tell when we moved into our home 2 years ago we had carpet in the bathroom by the vanity. We decided to immediately change that out because who wants carpet in the bathroom, but we knew that for the rest of the bathroom we would need to do a complete renovation.
Here was my design board for our renovation.
Ultimately, we were not able to do a freestanding tub/shower combo due to space, but I still love how everything turned out! My initial piece that I pulled my inspiration from was our Navy Blue vanity from Lowe’s. I LOVE this piece! The vanity came fully assembled with the countertop, hardware, etc. It was so nice!
Since the vanity had gold accents, I knew that I wanted my other pieces (hardware, fixtures, lighting, etc) to match that. I partnered with Pfister Faucets again (my go-to company for kitchen+bath products) on the Faucets, Shower Head, and Bathroom Accessories. Pfister Faucets has the best customer services and their products are SO EASY to install! We went with items from the Contempra line in Brushed Gold.
For the lighting in our Master Bathroom, we partnered with Kichler Lighting. If you have been following my blog for any amount of time you know how much I love them and love working with them. We have used their lights in several rooms in our home and they are the best! Their products are also easy to install which I know is a huge plus for Joshua!
I ended up going with 2 “Jasper Vanity Lights” to go above the mirrors. We also ended up changing out our Bathroom Fan and the light above the shower because they were so OLD!!
We got all of our tile from Home Depot for a STEAL! I am pretty sure we spent less than $500 on our tile for the shower floor, shower wall and bench, and the bathroom floor! We went with an elongated white subway tile for the shower wall and bench, a hexagon white tile for the shower floor, and a Carrarra Porcelain for the bathroom floor tile.
You can also take a peak at our new door knob hardware. We partnered with Baldwin to replace all of our door knobs in our home. I love how sleek this design is and it truly makes the biggest difference in our home. We ended up selecting the Contemporary Reserve Knob in Satin Black. Look at how beautiful!
To finish off this renovation, I have to brag on my husband. He built this BEAUTIFUL barn door for our bathroom. We never had a door leading to our bathroom but since we were limited on space, we knew that a sliding barn door would be best for this project. This barn door was Magnolia inspired and I think it turned out so beautifully!
Whew! That was a long post but I am so happy to finally share this reveal with you guys…and I am already ready to tackle our guest bathroom upstairs! 😉
