I'm finally ready to share my master bathroom makeover with you! It took about 2 1/2 weeks to complete but we're so happy with the results. I am glad it's finally done because it was noisy, dusty, smelly and messy to get it done! It took many trips to Floor and Decor and Home Depot to get it accomplished. We hired someone to do the work and also a plumber to handle the tub hook-up since our plumbing was done over 21 years ago and it was built into the tub itself! Can you say ca-razy??
So, here it is.
Here is a BEFORE.
In fact, that isn't even a real before because we had already changed out the counters, sinks and mirrors. We also increased the height of our vanities by building the cabinets up a bit. But at least you can see the old flooring and tile around the tub etc.
We went to Floor and Decor to purchase most of our materials. We chose porcelain tile wood looking flooring.
It's a great contrast with all of the white in the room.
We had our counters and sinks updated with granite in a grey color and white square shaped under mount sinks.
We used Atlanta Stone Creations for all of our counters and sinks. They also do light carpentry work if necessary to fit the project. They did a great job and I highly recommend them if you're looking to do the same thing. They even work outside the state of GA! Who knew?
We chose subway tile with dark grey grout for the shower and tub area.
The floor and shower niches in the wall were tiled in a small hexagonal white tile for texture and contrast.
We had the front of the tub covered in bead board paneling and some thick trim was added to break it up.
We replaced our old tub faucet with this goose neck style that is part of the Delta Porter collection. It matches our other faucets too.
We replaced the mirrors above the sinks with these black framed ones from Home Goods.
We also replaced a hanging light fixture in here with this petite chandelier.
So what do you think? I took these pics on a cloudy day so unfortunately, they're not as bright as I would like. But I think you can see it well enough. It's very neutral and classic. We still have to paint the cabinets. We're dreading that since we have to take the doors off and spray them. Ugh! My husband will take care of that. We may need to wait for the pollen to go away before doing that too.
I hope you liked seeing our completed project. We couldn't have done it ourselves since the work was very tedious (especially the shower). The shower had some leakage problems that had to be addressed and a new shower pan had to go in. Water drainage issues had to be improved so we were careful to get it done properly this time. Our tub faucet required some carpentry to be done underneath the tub and soldering had to be done with our copper pipes. We were thankful to have knowledgeable people work for us in a timely fashion and not be overly expensive.
This type of project is not for the first-time DIY'er! If you're planning on an extensive bathroom makeover be sure you know what you're doing. Mistakes are costly!
Hope you have a great weekend! My husband and I are spending the weekend away together to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
