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 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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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!
