Master Bath Makeover
When my husband and I purchased our house shortly after we were married over ten years ago, I was thrilled by our fairly spacious bathroom but loathed the dark tiling and cabinets. I dreamed of one day turning this space into a relaxing, light and bright bathroom!
This remodel was put off over the years due to babies, a temporary move to Texas and prioritizing other home projects…but this year, I was finally able to make this master bath makeover dream a reality!
I knew I wanted a light, bright and clean-looking space, but also wanted to be sure to choose practical materials that will withstand the daily life of a family of four, who often all congregate in the master bathroom!
Here’s how I selected some of the most important elements of the bathroom: the vanity and counters, floor tile and shower tile.
Choosing a Vanity
The first element I chose for our bathroom remodel was a new vanity. We had built-in-cabinets previously. I love the look of a free-standing vanity, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that The Home Depot had many gorgeous vanity options that were more cost-effective than replacing the old countertops and refinishing/painting the old cabinetry.
The Wyndham Collection Sheffield Double Vanity with Marble Vanity Top in Carrara was our top choice. I love the clean, modern lines of this piece, the square sinks and the white/gray marble.
The multiple drawers and storage are an added bonus! Most importantly, I let the marble set the tone for the tile selections for the rest of the bathroom, taking me in a white and gray color scheme.
Choosing Floor Tile
I always thought I would choose white floors when I remodeled my bathroom. But, when it came to down to selecting flooring, I started to rethink white!
Since our entire family use our master bathroom, I entertained other options. I am so glad I did! I decided on MARAZZI Montagna Dapple Gray floor tile to give the bathroom a warm and cozy feeling.
It’s also more forgiving and livable than all white! I had the tile laid in a herringbone pattern to give it some extra sophistication. This floor is my favorite part of the bathroom! I couldn’t be more thrilled with how the floor adds texture and variation to the entire space.
Choosing Shower Tile & Backsplash Tile
I’ve always loved the look of a classic white subway tile. Choosing the primary shower tile was an easy decision.
I selected a light gray grout to incorporate continuity with the gray flooring. Since I love mixing patterns and didn’t want the shower to be all linear, I selected a hexagon tile for the shower floor as well as for the back of the shower boxes.
I am so happy with the way it turned out, and how the shower coordinates with the rest of the bathroom.
I love my bathroom! It’s exceeded my expectations and it’s been so fun to see these different elements and textures all come together so beautifully! I love how this neutral palette lends itself to any and all color schemes for accessorizing.
Our bathroom is both pretty and practical, comfortable and classic, cozy and chic… and a room we will enjoy for years to come.
