Neutral Master Bathroom Remodel

18 April 2011

 Neutral Master Bathroom Remodel
contributed by The Ivy Cottage

I am beyond excited to finally reveal our renovated master bathroom!  It has been a long time coming.

When we purchased the house three years ago, the bathroom was ugly and we were unable to use the shower due to some extreme leakage.  Fast forward two years and one kid with another on the way and it was time for Momma to have her own space.

I wanted a space that was relaxing, fairly neutral, and had a ecletic modern country look.  Texture was also important and we needed to keep the renovation in check with our area . . . don't over renovate for your neighborhood!

We started the tile job on the shower in April last year and just now put the finishing touches . . . babies and finances can put things on the back burner.

Let's not wait a moment longer!!!
Here are some before images.

Shower:  Used to have cultured marble slabs that matched the counter tops and the typical frosted shower door with lovely gold accents.

This is the color that the cabinets were originally.

Vanity with builder's grade mirror, old faucets, and cultured marble top, which we actually kept.
My hubby's vanity with builder's grade mirror, cultured marble tops, and old faucet.
New tile (purchased from Home Depot for 58 cents per tile) and frameless glass enclosure (our big splurge that took us a while to up for).

Vanity with painted cabinets, new hardware, new faucet, and customized frame for builder's grade mirror.
View from the door entering the bathroom.  New towel bar and door handles.

Hubby's vanity with fresh paint, new faucet and lighting as well as a customized frame on the mirror.

The jacuzzi tub, which we kept, with it's new tile surround, towel bar, faucet, and accessories.

We love this little shelf below the window, because it is great for display and makes you feel cozy in the bath tub.
Some simple accessories . . . apothecary jars with potpourri and bath bubbles.
View of the window with new curtains (tutorial to follow), paint, blinds, and toilet paper holder.

Another view of the new shower!

This is the original tile, but it used to have white (ok, nasty white) grout, so I stained it a neutral color that would hide the grim.

I'm inspired! I have that same boring builder grade bath. I've got the motivation, now to find the money!!!

Love the bathroom! It's such a calm, comfortable space. I really like all of the accessories. Everything fits together nicely.

Love your new/old bath. We are going to frame our builder grade mirror too and I will be referencing yours when we tackle that project.
