Master Bathroom Remodel With New Tub, Floors, & Vanities

01 November 2010

Master Bathroom Remodel With 
New Tub, Floors, & Vanities
contributed by Penny @ The Comforts of Home

The master bath is finished. Well, except for installing my vintage chandelier over the tub and that will happen after the first of the year. So I wanted to share with you how beautiful it turned out! You can see my inspiration pictures in this post, here.

Fair warning - there are A LOT of pictures to follow. The first FOUR pictures are BEFORE AND DURING. I wanted to remind you what it looked like when we purchased it. Remember we had to gut it because there was a major water leak in the shower and the entire bath floor needed to be replace.

And now for the AFTER pictures.

As you can see, I decided to use simple white drapes on the leaded glass window. I didn't want to loose any of the beauty of the window with blinds. The space on either side of the window was too small to stack shutters.

The matching vanities below have Carrera marble counter tops. I purchased some marble knobs and replaced the standard metal ones the vanities came with. Originally I wanted to place a taller cabinet between the two sinks, but there wasn't enough room. I like the simplicity of this, though and am glad there was not enough room.

The vintage smoking stand next to the tub, I have had for years. It was the inspiration for the dark stained cabinets and marble tops.

We made the stock (from Lowe's) cabinets look more custom, with the marble tops, knobs and by attaching the towel bars to the sides of the vanities instead of the wall.

Some Close Up Shots of the Details

Edited: Someone asked what the container was in the picture above on the right. It is a toothbrush and tooth paste holder. I love it because it keeps the toothbrushes clean and away from dust and germs that float in the air in the bathroom. Plus it keeps them out of site. Let's face it...used toothbrushes can be pretty ugly :-). I purchased it from Lowe's and it comes in several colors.

Once the vintage chandelier gets hung up, I will post a picture of it. I love the way this bath turned out. Tonight I am going to break in that tub!

So pretty. I love all the special little touches you put in, like the towel bars on the vanities and the magazine holder in the wall. What a great idea. And that window is beautiful. Makes me want to redo our bathroom which is similar to your before.

This is a wonderful bathroom. I could sit in that tub and soak carefree for as long as the water stays hot. Gorgeous. Tammy
