Happy Thursday, friends! I have been busy this week, but I’ve also been working on this post for a while, and now I want to share it with you! It’s a master bathroom makeover by my older son and daughter-in-law! Come check out their gorgeous bathroom!
Our son and daughter-in-law (Chase & Brie) have been in their home for about 2 ½ years and boy they have done SO much in such a short time! They painted their kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets and replaced nearly every single light fixture in the entire house! Plus, a ton of yard work too! But their most recent project was tackling their master bathroom! For reference, here is what the bathroom looked like when they moved in. (From the listing photos on Zillow.)
The bathroom was functional and had everything they needed, but just a tad dated. (And had a tiny shower!)
And anyone who has or has bought bought a twenty year old home knows they all come with a gigantic soaker tub. (That takes up a lot of space and hardly anyone uses.) They longed for a more updated look.
So my son painted the cabinets black and added new hardware as soon as they moved in. This looked great and updated the bathroom while they completed more pressing projects. But this past winter they decided it was time to pull the trigger and redo the whole bathroom!
So bye-bye soaker tub!
Because my son and his wife both work full-time and have demanding jobs and a busy 2 year old, they decided to hire a contractor. And so it began! They demolished the entire bathroom from ceiling to floor. What a huge undertaking!
They tried to keep as much of the original footprint as possible so they didn’t have to move too many water or power lines. You can see they kept the large picture window and removed the two single vanities. This made room for a nice size double sink vanity along the wall that backs up to the bedroom. For the new flooring, they chose a beautiful white ceramic tile and had it laid in a diamond shaped pattern. (They saved money by going with ceramic tile instead of marble. We did the same thing in our last house and it looks exactly the same and is a money saver!)
They doubled the size of the walk-in shower and chose a beautiful white and gray Carrera marble tile with a pretty contrasting tile for the shower niche.
The marble tile turned out beautifully! Due to supply chain issues, it took a while for the custom glass enclosure to arrive, but as soon as it did, it was installed. Now the shower is so much larger and prettier! There is also a little corner ledge and a separate shower head for convenience.
Because of the unique size of the double vanity, they ended up custom ordering the cabinetry. (Pricey, but it’s beautiful and fits the space perfectly.) They purchased the faucets and the sconces from Pottery Barn and the Venetian style mirrors are from Wayfair. It is all gorgeous! And even prettier in person!
Chase and Brie had a beautiful free-standing tub installed in place of the large soaker tub. Luckily there was already a junction box over the tub and they added this stunning crystal chandelier. (Also from Pottery Barn) The wall sconces are from Shops Up Front in Statesville and the mirror is vintage from The Sleepy Poet. What a dreamy place to take a nice bubble bath!
But someone else prefers the shower and likes to catch “raindrops” on his tongue.
AFTER! What a difference, right?
They say that kitchens and bathrooms help sell as house, so if and when the kids decide to sell, this bathroom will be a major selling feature! It’s GORGEOUS!!
Thank you to Chase and Brie for providing me with the photos and details and for allowing me to share their master bathroom makeover with you! What do you think? Anyone else want to rip out their bathroom and start over? (That would be me raising my hand!) I hope you have a wonderful day and week! Until next time, may the Good Lord take a liking to you.
