How to Makeover the Master Bathroom

How to Makeover the Master Bathroom

Hey Friends! I’m so glad that you are here. Thank you so much for stopping by. Today, I’m sharing our master bathroom makeover with you. I’m sure that you will agree that this “before” bathroom definitely needed an “after.”

This is the perfect soaking bath tub.

This bathroom was in desperate need of an update-flooring, floor plan, lighting, EVERYTHING!

This is the “before” picture of the vanity. What you really can’t tell from this photo is that the cabinetry is lavendar and the carpet-yes, yikes! there was wall to wall dark green carpet throughout the bathroom. This vanity had two sinks in it and two feet away there was a pedastal sink. I;m not really sure why they needed three sinks in the master bedroom. Humm!

This is the new vanity. For some reason, I don’t miss the lavendar vanity at all. I have arches throughout our house, both inside and out, so I designed the vanity to have an arch. It has storage towers on the ends of the vanity, I put electrical outlets inside them. It’s so handy. We put in travertine countertops that match the countertops throughout the house.

Not the prettiest master bathroom ever.

My bathroom is quite large, too large actually. The original bathroom had a strange layout. This part of the bathroom was about six feet by eight feet, it had a pedastal sink, a toilet and the shower. There was so much wasted space in the whole bathroom, yet everything was crammed into such a tight space in here.

We reconfigured the bathroom so that just the toilet was in a private space.

The old bathtub was dark green to match the carpet. It was on a raised area and you had to walk up several steps to get into it. It took up so much floor space. This bathtub sits in front of a window and it wonderful to look out whilerelaxing in the tub. We live on ten acres, so we don’t have to worry about being seen through the windows.

I love the uens around the tub, it makes it such a serene place to be.

We changed all of the lighting to chandeliers and sconces, with crystals of course. We put in porcelain tiles on the diagonal. It’s just beautiful and so much more practical.

This is such a lovely shower.

Again, the old shower was in the small closed in part of the bathroom and was very small, you hit both of your elbows on the walls when you washed your hair. This shower is such a great size. It has two regular shower heads, a rain shower head and a handheld shower head. We tiled it with travertine tiles on the diagonal, I love the look of it.

    love your style…looking forward to seeing more posts from you

  7. Let’s not even talk about carpet in a bathroom, those cabinets, that countertop or that tiny closet room with everything packed into it! Instead, can I just say that this is NOW one of the most stunning master bathrooms I’ve ever seen? I am currently embarking on completely making over my master bathroom and I only WISH it could look this good when I’m done. Alas I don’t have the space to do half of what you’ve done in yours. Loving all the inspiration. Keep up the fabulous work!

    1. Thank you so much, Tara. I so enjoy reading your blog. I acan’t wait to see your master bathroom reveal. Hugs and blessings to you.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
