I know how you crazy kids love photos so get ready for some photo overload in this post! Mama got a little trigger happy with the camera yesterday. Perhaps it has a little something to do with the excitement of the completed master bathroom renovation!! Woot, woot!! Come on in and take a looksie.
The new L-shaped bathroom is located on the second floor off the master bedroom within a dormer of our craftsman-colonial house. It is FULL of
weird unique and charming angles. It made for quite an interesting design challenge when trying to figure out the layout of the room.
We knew we wanted two sinks, a big shower and of course you need to add the porcelain throne into the mix. We also wanted a very crisp, clean and spa-like look and feel. All the finishes for the fixtures are polished chrome. They look like little pieces of jewelry when the natural light bounces off of them. Love! I considered mounting two mirrored medicine cabinets but changed my mind at the 11th hour. I felt like it would have been too much on this wall. The seamless bevelled mirror really opens up the space giving the illusion that the dormer is bigger than it really is.
Our contractor originally sent me to a show room in Pasadena to pick out our sink and shower fixtures. The hubs was on a biz trip so the "decision-ball" was in MY court. It was like being a kid in a candy shop! Everything was so sparkly and shiny. I worked with a nice sales person to make selections on styles and finishes and then.... he priced it out. WHAT?!*$@#%%?! IT'S GOING TO BE HOW MUCH?! I thanked him for his time, fishtailed it out of the parking lot and headed straight to Home Depot. Both the wall sconces and sink fixtures were finds at Home Depot... and about half the price! And honestly, the quality is quite impressive.
The frameless shower is my most favorite part of this bathroom remodel. We also added two skylights to really pull in the natural light. It's a great way to start your day gazing at the California blue skies
To save on space we had a pocket door installed with etched glass to allow the natural light to pass through into the master bedroom and to allow for privacy.
These wall hooks were purchased at HomeGoods for $9.99 each!
In an effort to utilize every square inch of space, we had a custom cabinet built into the eave of the roof. It's the perfect amount of space for clean towels, facecloths and 3 curling irons, 2 hairdryers, 2 flats irons, 72 round brushes... the list goes on. And pull out hamper drawers - one side for lights, one side for darks!
And here we go. Before and AFTER!!!
Crazy before and after shots, right?! I still need to add some personal touches like maybe a water color over the toilet and some bath mats under the sinks to keep our toes cozy while brushing our teeth. I'm also thinking of picking up some natural weave baskets under the vanity for hidden storage. All in good time - I'll be sure to keep you posted.
Hope you enjoyed the tour - have a great week!
