I am so excited to finally share the full reveal of my master bathroom makeover and give you all of the details!

While our master bathroom location is the same, we replaced most of the elements that were dated and worn. I have to say that I’m completely over the moon with how it turned out and it has the elegant yet zen feng shui look that I envisioned. This has been our forever home and we raised our family here. Elevating this room to a new level will serve us well and if we sell in the future it will give the house more value.

Before I get into all the love of new in the master bathroom makeover, let me show you the before.

Bathroom remodeling can be expensive, the only more costly renovation being the kitchen. We did cut a few corners to save money on the master bathroom makeover and kept the original vanity cabinets. They have solid wood doors and were still in good shape. We repainted them and changed the hardware, which made an enormous difference. The round sinks were also in good shape and I’m aware that square or rectangular sinks are trending. I am more traditional and kept what we had because I like them. The former granite countertops were no longer my taste and were replaced (Hanstone Quartz Montauk) when we updated the kitchen.

The Inspiration

Inspiration comes in many forms, but I was definitely inspired by several upscale hotels that I’ve stayed in over the years. I was envisioning a high end hotel look for less!

The Planning

When you plan a room renovation from start to finish it takes time and we started the planning about 8 months prior to completion. After many discussions of finishes and the look, our first task at hand was to create a vision board. This was my job, and I scoured Pinterest and Instagram for ideas. My husband is a general contractor with a company that actually specializes in high end home remodeling. He did all of the measuring and lining up assistance. There were definitely a few differences of opinion along the way to plow through with designer vs contractor!

The Design

The shower that stood before was torn out for several reasons. We knew that we had room to expand it slightly and put in a large shower bench. One of my top priorities was to have a frameless shower enclosure, so that I didn’t freeze whenever the air conditioner turned on. I requested a much larger shower niche with two shelves to accommodate tall bottles of shampoo.

The existing well-worn tub was removed and replaced with this roomy and beautiful freestanding tub. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I can really stretch out and relax with a good soak!

The toilet needed to be removed since we were taking out the old tile flooring, so we opted for an elongated dual flush toilet.

The Demolition

That part went quickly and took the tile contractors a couple of days. I shut off the a/c in that part of the house and made sure that they put up plastic sheeting first since it does make a dusty mess.

The Installation

Rather than bore you with installation details, I’m providing visuals of the finished work. Hiring two trades to assist with this project was a solid decision, as the scope was too involved to do it ourselves. We hired two local companies that work with our family construction business on a daily basis, Coral Gables Plumbing and Twins Tile. The work that we did ourselves was drywall patching and repair, painting the ceiling, walls and cabinetry. My husband (who is well qualified) did all of the electrical work on the master bathroom makeover (while I watched:-)).

The Finished Bathroom Reveal

There is an incredible difference now when you first view or walk into the room. It has that modern and clean look that I was going for and plenty of light. We could have extended the glass enclosure all the way down the wall to the end of the tub area, but it would have been awkward with the window placement.

The rainhead shower is large and soothing to the soul. We opted for this Metal Raincan Shower Head Assembly

The Delta Temp2O® 6-Setting Slide Bar Hand Shower is my husband’s (the gadget lover) favorite. He loves how the display shows you the temperature of the water and also that it’s backed by Delta Faucet’s lifetime warranty. Our plumber was really impressed with the Delta Faucet items too.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted another towel bar or hooks, but when I saw the Cassidy 30″ Towel Bar I loved the shape. It’s curved out, making the towel easy to grab or place back after showering.

Here is my hook! We installed the Cassidy Double Robe Hook on the back of the bathroom door.

I don’t know if it’s possible to love a toilet, but the elongated shape and the dual flush are wonderful. It took a bit of getting used to, not having a handle, but it’s sleek and functional for our space. The Cassidy Tissue Holder coordinates with all of the polished chrome fixtures in the room.

This Delta Freestanding Tub is really the star of the room, and the chandelier enhances that luxe feel. Honestly I feel like a queen in this bathroom now!

A soak in here after a long day of running errands or working is just amazing!

And finally, the Traditional Tub Filler is perfect for my modern bathroom renovation. It’s modern and yet traditional and we have a few more touches to add here which I’ll be sharing soon! If you have any questions, please ask…but we are super satisfied with everything from my sponsor Delta Faucet and I hope that you love the look as much as I do!

  1. Janet, that is absolutely gorgeous! I have an even more dated master bath (picture carpeting and teal faux granite (???) counters). I’ve been waiting to see how yours came out so I can show it to hubby to prove to him that yes, our bathroom does need updated 🙂 Love, love, love that Delta shower system. It all looks very luxurious and spa like!

    1. Carpeting I could not take Pam, lol. Delta makes some really quality and amazing products and we use them in our family construction business as well!

  2. We redid our two bathrooms last summer and are very happy with the results. We also used Delta faucets and fixtures and was very happy with how everything looks and works.

  3. Robin Gunn says:

    Love the makeover- absolutely beautiful!

  4. Janet such a transformation and so good to know you didn’t just throw everything out. Love the fact that you always manage to hold onto what’s still good.

    1. Thanks Suzanne and I do believe in saving what you can, especially if all that is required is paint and hardware. Win/win

  5. That is such a lovely space! I love everything you did here. The faucets are wonderful. I’m a little biased, though. All of my faucets are Delta.

    1. Thanks so much Stacie! Delta does make quality products and I was happy to work with them on this project.

  6. Janet,

  9. I just love how your bathroom came out. Everything is so crisp and clean. I hope to do something like this with our bathroom one day.

    1. Thank you Amber and I hope that you get to redo your bathroom some day.

  10. Wow what an update! The after even looks bigger, more airy. I have not purchased a toilet in 20 years so I will have to look up dual flush, I’m intrigued!

    1. Thanks my friend and yes…toilets have come a long way!!

  11. Absolutely gorgeous in every way!! I have a bathroom that really needs some love as well

    1. Thanks so much Cindy! Next comes the laundry room here, since they appliances are really living on borrowed time and always breaking.

      1. BEAUTIFUL results! We are just beginning to plan our remodel. Choosing the shower tile is a huge obstacle for me. I love the subtle look of yours. What tile did you select?
        Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

  12. Janet-what a beautiful transformation! Can you tell me what you used on the floor and tub/shower surround? Thank you.

    1. Bwahhhaaaha, you have no idea how happy I was to get that huge tub out of my bedroom! I am really pleased and next comes the laundry room.

  14. Your new bathroom is gorgeous! I think the type of fixtures one chooses really sets off the look of a bath or kitchen. This is awesome! .

    1. So true Gisele…we based the design of the entire room on the Delta Faucet fixtures!

  15. Can you come and redo my bathroom funny LOL. That looks grudges and I would love to have that in my bathroom.

    1. Haha…sure! We are really pleased with the bathroom.

  16. Absolutely beautiful! We are currently getting things together to redo our bath as it is long overdue. (same one as when we built the home 38 yrs ago) Thank you for your inspiration I love it all. Loving that chandelier too!
    Blessings, Candy

  17. Very, very nice! I’ve only remodeled a bathroom once in my life and that was uber expensive. The house we just bought, though, has a horrible (I mean really horrible) master bath, so as soon as we can gather enough strength and money, we will be redoing it. I love your showerhead – I’m sure we’ll do something similar.

    1. We actually kept the cabinets and repainted them as I mentioned, so that is a big money saver. Good luck with your future remodeling project!

  18. Love the makeover. Absolutely beautiful??

    1. Thanks so much Debbie!

    1. Thank you Kim and I thank you for the feature. Good luck with your link party!

  36. Odessa Graham says:

    Janet, I cannot see even one thing I would change if I could have a new bathroom! Yours is absolute perfection! That tub with the chandelier above is to die for! I am so happy for you.

    1. Thank you so much Odessa and I appreciate you following me over on the blog! Interesting new project coming tomorrow to talk about.

  37. I have your bathroom makeover. It is beautiful and so crisp and clean looking. We are looking to redo our bathroom in the near future. What are the dimensions of your shower?

    1. Thank you Anita! Our shower is approximately 3′ x 6′ and a nice size for the room. Good luck with your project!

  38. I’ve been dreaming of a master bath makeover for YEARS!!! Can you tell me what size and kind of tiles you used? It looks like you have minimal grout lines. One of my primary desires is to get rid of dealing with grout in a shower! Beautiful classy job. I have almost the same footprint as your bathroom. I wondered about the hassle of having to clean floors around a free standing tub? How do you do that?


  39. Hi Janet

    Congratulations! I think that you have fulfilled your dream to have a high-end bathroom. The beauty is in all the details, all the little touches. Simply beautiful!

  40. Your post is very inspiring to me! I love the shower enclosure! My question is: how easy or hard is it to keep that large expanse of glass clean and clear?

    1. I’m glad to hear that Tricia! That shower is used daily and it looks as good as new! We paid the upgrade for better glass when installed and I keep a microfiber rag in it to wipe any water spots after use!

  41. What is the name of the tile you used in your bathroom makeover? I read the post and the comments but didn’t see it mentioned. Forgive me if I missed it! It’s beautiful! You did an awesome job!

  42. Just gorgeous. Here is a thought to bring just a bit of pattern and color to your room would be to add a fabric print Roman shade to the window. There is so much white that it would look interesting. Your thoughts?

    1. Thanks Nanci! I prefer the white Nanci and add color with towels, plants and accessories. It’s truly my serene sanctuary!

  43. My current bathroom – which probably won’t get changed – looks like your old bathroom! Your new bathroom is absolutely stunning. I can see why you’re so happy with it. Great job!

    1. I see lots of bathrooms similar to my old one Jacki and I was happy to have the chance to remodel ours, especially since some things were malfunctioning. Thanks for stopping by!
