Hi there! Today, I am super excited to FINALLY share the full tour of our master bathroom. I’m embarrassed to admit that we just completed the final renovation element on this room, more than two years after it was pretty much gutted when we moved in. It wasn’t the quickest room, but it’s one I am very proud of!
Let’s jump in to a couple before and after photos, shall we?
As you can see here, this renovation was more involved than just paint and tile. We reconfigured the room a bit, opening up the vanity/closet area into the bathroom area. The original room felt kind of cool in person. It had fancy finishes, like chandeliers, but it also felt a bit worn. The layout was making it feel smaller, so we decided to open it up. We moved walls a bit, making room for a larger tub and a larger shower. We said goodbye to the fluorescent light soffit above the vanity and the double mirrors.
From this view it is completely different, from the opposite view of the closet it is still very much the same. We kept what we loved about the room and used it as a base for a new design.

This isn’t the exact same angle, but it’s close enough to give you an idea. In the other bathrooms, we kept the tubs and worked around them, but in this bathroom we decided to go all in and add a dreamy clawfoot tub. The chandelier is a custom piece from

We just recently had the shower door installed, completing this project. The striped penny tile was a fun detail. I’m glad we added it. In the first photo here, it’s easiest to see the crosshatch tile pattern we chose for this bathroom. I love the texture it adds to our space.
Above the toilet we added two customized Ikea shelves. I use this for a place to store my face mask collection and perfumes (so, stuff I use more occasionally). Inside the vanity is storage for makeup and toiletries … anything we use daily.
Directly behind the vanity is an l-shaped closet area. It has three closets and a built in-dresser. We converted one of the closets to have a full length mirror and added more storage to one of the walls.
I am one of those people who is far more likely to use things it I can see them—so in my closet space, I use my accessories as decor.

Thank you so much for joining me on such a personal and special tour. I learned SO MUCH renovating this home … like, I am STILL processing all the lessons I learned. We hope to stay here and enjoy what we have created for a long time.
