Master Bathroom Reveal
Please note: This post contains affiliate links.
The beauty is certainly in the details with this one.
In order to create this modest 5×10 master bathroom, we borrowed some space from our previous master bathroom and our old master bedroom, and then we connected it to our new addition. Since this was part of a larger construction loan project for our recent addition, our contractor handled the plumbing, electrical, tiling, and framing. In retrospect, we should have handled this project on our own, but it sure was nice to take a break from the labor intensive side of things and focus on design!
Check out these before pictures of the space we used for this brand new master bathroom:
Thankfully we were able to rid our lives of the less than appealing DIY vanity that previously existed, and took the rest of the 5×10 space from the original master bedroom (mostly closet space).
Keep an eye out for my blog post “New Living Room” to find out what happened to the rest of this bedroom space.
Here are a few in progress shots of the framing going up:
In almost no time at all, the rough plumbing and electrical were done, and the tub was in! The space was actually slightly over 5 ft (the length of the tub) so we opted to do a small bump out shelf for all of our bath products.
You can see the spacer they put on the right side of the tub. We originally wanted to do a niche on the wall, but due to plumbing locations we were very limited. We also decided that it would not be ideal given the beautiful marble tile we planned on installing. We wanted a smooth consistent look to the tile.
The Final Look:
To say I am obsessed with these marble subway tiles is an understatement. We got them at a steal thanks to my sister-in-law, who happens to work for a tile distributor. The Hex is your typical off-the-shelf tile from home depot, and the marble subway tiles match perfectly!
Here is a wider view of the tub surround:
The cool blue undertones go great with our “dustblu” wall color.
For the floor we went with a simple large rectangular tile. It is a very light gray with some darker gray movement to the lines. We paired it with a light gray grout.
For shower fixtures we went with the Tolva shower head and faucet by Delta. The rounded edges on the square fixture really soften the look and add an upscale touch to the shower.
These faucets actually came with our double vanity and look very high-end with the marble counter top. This vanity was a bit of a splurge for us at almost $1600.00, but we saved so much on the tile and tub that it was completely in our budget!
Since there is only about 3 feet between the vanity front and the wall it was a bit hard to get a good picture. The color is considered “gray” but it is more blue in person. In fact, it is a couple shades darker than our blue walls.
This is just a pretty over-sized Hydrangea that brightens my morning. Doesn’t its classic and simplistic elegance pair well with the other details?
I originally planned on hanging pendants and got scared at the last-minute (a bit too risky for me!). Instead I decided to play it safe with the same light but in a sconce version. I am rather disappointed in myself for wimping out on this one, but love them nonetheless!
They go nicely with the clearance beaded mirrors I found. I never realized how expensive mirrors were, so thank you Amazon!
In order to bring in a bit more light we had the contractor open up the exterior wall and put in a small window. It was supposed to be longer, but I guess that got lost in communication. We plan on adding a privacy film to the glass, I just haven’t gotten around to it. Thankfully it’s summer and the tree’s around our house are in full bloom.
