Our Master Bath Design

There are 2 spaces that sell a home – the Kitchen and the Master Bath. Which is why it is so important that we give extra attention to our master bathroom as it is vital to the sale price of our property and making the profit we want to.

My goal for this space was to make it feel like a luxurious retreat. The home is only 1,500 SF so a tub wasn’t an option. So I wanted to elevate the selections for a high end feel.

Check out the mood board…

For the love of all that is good and true, YES I mixed metals on purpose! I know it sounds like a scary thing and many are afraid to do it, but it gives a space a purposeful and intentional feel. I personally love the look of mixing finishes. Gold can also be a hard finish to match as there are so many different gold colors within each manufacturer. So instead of trying to be “matchy-matchy” and getting it wrong or being a little off, I’d rather be intentional with my finishes.

CABINET

Believe it or not, I selected this all-inclusive vanity from Home Depot! I wanted a wood grain vanity that had drawers down the center separating “his” and “her” side. The wood tone against the marble finishes creates a serene environment which is what I was going for. The countertop included with the vanity is marble and the sinks are an oval under mount.

PLUMBING

I kept all of the plumbing in a chrome finish to compliment the bits of gold accents here and there. Chrome is such a timeless finish and will never go out of style. The shower head is so classic and is very functional. I always recommend having a handheld shower head in the master shower for nothing other than cleaning purposes! It makes it much easier to hose the shower down on cleaning day!

TILE

The tile was an easy decision for me. I wanted to keep is simple and classic. I selected a marble looking porcelain tile for the bathroom floor and shower walls and a patterned tile for the shower floor. I felt that this bathroom deserved more than subway tile in the shower, so I stepped it up a notch or two with this veined 12×24 tile.

LIGHTING

You may know this about me – but I believe that lighting can make or break the vibe of a space. Lighting always takes me the longest to select as there are so many different options and I am very particular in getting this decision right. I always recommend two sconces on either side of the vanity for the master as it creates good lighting for makeup application! It also creates a subtle ambiance when the light hits the wall which I love. I decided to select sconces with a shade for a vintage feel with the finish being in gold.

HARDWARE

I am still a bit up in the air on this decision, but want something unique and a bit feminine. I am a sucker for a good looking cabinet pull at a good price point!

My current hardware selection can be found here!

LAYOUT

The layout was changed during demo as what I originally had designed didn’t feel quite right when I was walking the space. This whole area is an addition that is being added on to the back of the home! Within the addition we have a laundry room, mudroom from the exterior porch / deck, master bedroom and master bath with large closet. I was unwavering on my decision to have an enclosed laundry room with a door that can be shut on those crazy days that the laundry is a tornado! I was also firm on having a decent sized master closet!

MASTER SUITE ADDITION – Current

Current Status – We still have a ways to go before the finishes are installed, but as soon as the drywall is installed, things start moving fairly quickly so I always like to be prepared with my finishes.

“Before” Photo

This is the “before” of the porch that was added on to the original 1950’s home. We demo’s this completely to make room for the master suite addition. I can not wait for Spring to hit for the greenery to come alive again!

Next up will be the Main Bath selections so stay tuned!
