Master Bath Renovation

Although we moved into our house in March the hubby and I still haven't moved into our master bedroom. We've been living in the guest room in the basement. It is lovely and comfortable, but its not our room. With our master closet and dressers a floor away, I've been living with a limited wardrobe. If it were't for the cleaning, cooking, and errand running I'd feel like I was on vacation.

Anyway, the reason we haven't moved into the master is the master bath renovation. The master bedroom actually had two bathrooms when we moved in - his and hers. We demolished hers (a pink 80s showpiece) during our first round of renovations prior to moving in. We transformed it into a large walk in closet with a stackable washer and dryer. More on that soon.

At the beginning of July we contracted a company called KBR to renovate the other master bath. To refresh your memory here's the original floor plan.

The hers bath is the one with the tub. As you can see, there were 4 closets in the room - 2 in her bath, 2 in his, and 2 facing into the master. I don't how the former owners remembered what was in what closet. With the hers bath converted to a large walk-in closet, we didn't need all of the other closets in the room. We decided to gut the entire his bath, to make one large master bathroom. The former his bathroom had a large sitting/dressing room and a tiny shower, bath, and toilet space.

Weird little table across from vanity in dressing room. I do plan to repurpose this elsewhere in the house.

Original 70s tile and wallpaper. I actually kinda like both. Just not in this space. 

 We worked with an Architect to figure out the new floor plan.

We wanted to maximize the windows in the room and did not want to move them. One is actually in the new shower and the other is over the tub. We made a few adjustments to the plan to keep costs down - we didn't end up raising the ceiling above the tub, we did not add frosted glass to the wall between the shower and toilet, and we went with a traditional door vs. a pocket door.

We are in the final stages of the renovation and I can't wait to share the finished space. In the meantime here's a sneak peak of some of the finishing touches.

I'll share all of the design details and sources when I share the finished bathroom - hopefully before the end of the month!
